There's not really anything bad I can say about this product. The color is gorgeous and I've gotten a lot of compliments/comments on it. It is really striking. I love the applicator because it is flatter, shorter, and wider, than how normal polishes are, making it incredibly easy to apply. One coat is fine, but I used two to fill in any streaks that might have shown up (not many did though). The polish dries SUPER fast which I totally love. I only bought two of these but now I'm thinking of buying ALL of them! LOVE THIS. I wish there were more color selections! Oh, AND it doesn't chip much at all!

I really love this stuff. I purchased it a long time ago (glad I did because now its gone!) but have only started using it now. Being a tan skinned girl already, this stuff just gives me a little something extra for my skin. It makes me look like I have gotten a bright tan. It gives me that sun-kissed look. I absolutely love it. I look so fresh and my skin looks great. I just use it over concealer instead of a foundation if I want a quick look. If not, then i'll use it as a bronzer. I like it a lot... very awesome product!
Beautiful color! it's something like a greyish, purplish, brown-gold color. It's absolutely beautiful. 2 coats should work just fine.
I love this stuff. This is my go to nude lipstick. The only problem is that this stuff is so small. I'm afraid it's going to be gone so soon! But it's a good price and next time I'll buy quite a few of these. I love the matte feeling of it... it's not drying at all despite being matte. Just lovely.
Very beautiful color. Pretty pale pink. Works great on my darker skin tone but just have to be soft-handed with the application.

I looooooooooove this stuff! It brings out the natural color of my lips, helping with my problem of different coloring in my lips. It is a lovely base. The only things I don't like about this is how expensive it is and how little you get. I just hope the price goes down one day! But this is a MUST HAVE.
i totally agree with lola on this one. it took MANY coats to get the same shade as the bottle. It is a pretty pretty baby pink, and it looks good on all skin tones I'm sure. It's just a lot of work for the color. I also thought it applied very streaky, which I hate.
I have had this product for a while, but I just started to get into it. I love it! It's a great color for everyday wear, especially on my tan complexion.
This is probably my favorite blush EVER. A beautiful peachy pink with shimmer. I think it may have too much shimmer, but I love it still. It really brings out my face. Great on my tannish-olive complexion. I think it would look beautiful on ANY skin tone!
I think this is an okay product, but it's not worth getting again. I think the color payoff isn't much of anything, and the point it comes in is way too sharp. It makes you work for the color more. It does get a little smudgy, but it's nothing serious (at least i haven't experienced that, but then again I also don't put a whole bunch on). I'll stick with my lancome eyeliner next time.

Love this product! The color is a beautiful and vibrant deep vampy red. It goes on really easily in one swipe... it doesn't clump up which I like. The product is just great! The only things that I found wrong with it was that it really needs a top coat (no surprise and not a bad thing really) but because I didn't put any on, if my nail rubbed against anything, red would come off on whatever I rubbed the nail on. But the color is great. I ordered more colors... can't wait to get them!
This is a pretty decent concealer. Not great, though. Does light-medium coverage, but never seems to get anything beyond that for me. The color matching is great though, so I appreciate that. I use with a 242 brush, so I don't know how the applicator works, but that brush works just fine. I'd recommend this concealer especially if you don't have TOO much to cover, like acne, but if you do have acne (like I do in some areas)... I don't really see it helping.
Very pretty color... a lavender but just comes out shimmery. I applied this with a lip brush so I don't really know what it looks like otherwise. I would recommend a brush. Good texture... would purchase again.

I am a little bit iffy about this lipglass. I put it on, and it was disgusting on me. It looked like BOOBOO! It was clumpy and gooey and wouldn't do anything. Then I tried pleasureseeker lipstick on top to see if that would help it. And it didn't really do too much. BUT THEN I went over it with a lip brush and it looked much better. So, I guess the moral is, use this with a lip brush to begin with and it should come out fine. It is a very sparkely nude color. Very pretty. I am hoping I learn to love it more.
This really is a gorgeous color, especially on my tan skin. I didn't think it would work, but it is SO beautiful. I definitely recommend for darker shades. And I am sure it would work for lighter shades, too.
