I have sensitive skin and I found this was very harsh, though it might have been because I had shaken it up before reading the instructions. It gave me chemical burns.
I bought the new French Mani kit. I keep my nails short, so I had a hard time putting on the tips without it looking pretty ridiculous, and the color strips hardly stick! I've used one of the regular kits before and didn't have that problem.

If you're looking for a lipstick with staying power, this is not it, as there is less wax in this than your typical lipstick. It's a nice product because it's conditioning and subtle. This is L'oreal's answer to the Revlon Lip Butter, though I prefer the lip butters because they are more the coverage is more buildable and this product sinks into my lips oddly over time. I prefer to wear this under a matching color of gloss because of the latter quality.
I'm in the minority when it comes to this product. I can hardly get past the smell, for one, even though it eventually dissipates. It's kind of hard to apply evenly, even with a sponge. That's important for me because I have acne marks I want covered. The label says it lasts all day, but if it gets particularly hot, it just melts right off. I gave it a two because the shade matched my skin tone really well, and it does look nice for awhile once you do get it on evenly. I'll probably try it as a concealer instead.

I love the color, but it chips so easily.
I have been very pleased with this product. I have acne marks, and this covers great. I would usually use compact makeup because it would cover these marks better, but now that I've found this liquid, I might switch over completely. This is expensive, but it matches my skin tone perfectly and it only takes one to two pumps to get the coverage I want.
I really liked this product, but the cap falls off easily and it's too expensive. I'll probably try Burt's Bees tinted lip balm, as I'm sure it has similar results with a pricetag that's lower by a couple of bucks.
I have this in Cherrylicious. I love the color, but that's about it. It wears off very easily (even with lip liner and primer underneath) and the texture is gritty.
