The color is amazing and I like the jelly-like finish. It could be a dupe for Sephora for OPI's Metro Chic. I find that the color is a lot more purple than it is grey, especially when applied. The brush is stiff and wide which is something new to me. Therefore the application was difficult. The color would be denser at the bottom and streaky at the fingertips. I'm probably just not used to it and that's why I'm having problems with getting an even application. This isn't really a big problem because once you do a second coat, color is even. Does last up to 10 days like it says on the bottle.
I love this color! It's a very dark plum color, an almost black. Application is amazing although it does take a few coats (I usually do 3) for the color the be opaque. I don't mind since the nail polish is very fast drying. Very long lasting and doesn't chip too easily.
I really wanted to love this but I can't. It's definitely very creamy so it's not too drying. My lips are pretty pigmented but it's not as pigmented as I wanted it to be. When applied to dried lips, it exaggerates any lip flakes and color doesn't stay. Then again, I really hope everyone knows it isn't the best idea to apply lipstick to dry lips anyway haha. Overall, not too bad. It'll probably work best with those who don't have very pigmented lips like I do. I also really love the scent, it's delicious!
A very buildable color. Despite being called "Mocha" I didn't find any sort of brown coloring. On my cheeks it becomes a lot more pink than it looks in the pan. It's pretty long lasting, but it definitely fades throughout the day.
Not the worst mascara but not the best either. It does lengthen a bit, but not dramatically. What I do like about it is that it doesn't clump.
