Lip Gloss -L'Oreal - HIP Shine Struck Liquid Lipcolor 460 Precarious

This lipcolor looks really orange in the bottle, but it is very flattering on the lips. I have red undertones to my pale skin and the coral color is a fantastic compliment to that. I collect a lot of lipsticks and glosses, and by far this one has stayed on WAY longer out of ALL of them. If you have full lips I suggest you try this line of lip color, it really does stick and the pigments are awesome.
I have very dry, sensitive, light skin. I bought this product remembering some other MAC foundation I bought before that had been wonderful, but it was was not this. Overall it was not that impressive of coverage, I really can't say its any better than other foundations I've used. (I normally use Dior or maybelline). Maybe my expectations are too high, but I though it would be a more full, silky and fullfilling experience.

I have the natural minerals duo, and although I really hate the case its in, its been a very natural looking everyday useful eyeshadow, which is something I rarely find. I use the darker brown to shape my eyebrows and it looks very natural, the lighter color looks really nice as a subtle eyeshadow. I use so little of the product for this that I am sure it will last me a long time, overall a good investment.

I love the color, I especially love peach blushes in general, they do wonders for pale skin tones with red undertones. This particular blush is pretty boring. The color is wonderful, but when I put it on my face its very flat. For a nice peach blush I was expecting a little more, at least it did not cost very much.

Ok, I've tried to get the mineral wear products to work for me, but I want to warn those who have sensitive acne prone skin, this might not be the product for you. I had run out of my regular power and decided to apply this over cover up and see what happened. It didn't look bad, the sheen was a little much. My face broke out horribly...it seemed to 'illuminate' my break outs as well. I probably should have just used this as an 'illuminator' or added sheen on top of powder, but overall its one of the very few products I would return.
I was really excited to try this line, its smells are very unique. The lip balm did not deliver how I thought it would, I love the smell but this is not effective in keeping my lips moisturized at all. Burt's line is a little bland.
I got this as a gift (and many other GOSH products). I LOVE how big it is! I am very fair so its a little overwhelming on my skin, but I can see how it could work really well for someone who tans, especially with its nice subtle shimmer. My sister tans and she almost stole it from me! Very nice sheen, I use it everyday just for the pretty mirror, if I look particularly lifeless I put a little on and its nice.
I have been wearing this perfume for many years! I have been told that I smell like a grandma though, but I really love the smell, its not for the faint of heart. I think its pungency is wonderful. This has become my 'secret stable smell' but by no means would I describe it as girly or alluring. Buy with caution!
I have pretty large lips, and constantly find myself re-applying lip gloss all day (maybe a nervous habit) But this is one of my favorite products, so I have to review it. Its not everyones favorite smell but I don't mind it at all, I think it feels very refreshing and tingly but also stays on my lips for much longer than any of my lipgloss, and I feel like my lips are soft for many hours longer than other lip products, I really can't complain for a dollar.
