I sucumbed and bought thias after seeing it in Sephora. It is quite a different color and hard to describe - shimmery and not quite fuschia(which I think of as neon bright), this has a little more purple to the pink and I love it! Brightens my face. You can tone it down by blotting or just after having it on a bit...gorgeous color!
Where has this been all my life? I love the way my skin looks after applying, natural and bronze, bette than my TM! I don't care for the stampp ad but instead of fingers I press my MU sponge into it and then apply it!!
This was a surprise in that I ordered from QVC without seeing it first. It's quite nice, and not terribly dark or fake orangey. This will work in winter as well when you just want a touch of color
What a nice surprise - I don't usually buy drugstore stuff but I loved my Rimmel l/g and was intrigued by these tubes. I picked up Sensational which is a warm raspberry, not one of my usual choices * I can't do pinks!). Love the texture and the color looks nice on me, it brightens up my face! Yahoo! A steal!

I swapped for this l/s and I am in love!!! This is th eperfect color red! Does nOT turn orange at all on me and the staying power is incredible! No bleeding like other brands!!
I adore this color! It is kind of odd, a shimmery mauvey color but I think it is great - i am on my second tube! It is creamier than some of her other colors too!
This is an interesting color, kind of hard to describe ..almost red but not, it has a touch of wine in it which makes it easier to wear than a bright red. My only disappointment it is a touch dry, I put a base on first so it would not bleed and had to add a touch of clear l/g but it is fine with that.
I got this in the QVC TSV as well and really like the color and texture. I read some reviews that said the staying power is minimal but I find it to be about the same as other l/g only not as goopy. My only rant is there seems to be practically no product in the package, I used it up really quickly and I NEVER use up my lip products!
I was loath to buy a Cargo l/s as I never cared for the e/s and the glosses were overpriced in my opinion..but I was in Sephora and tried this and LOVED it! The color is a pinky-brown version of YLBB and is the perfect everyday no thought choice of a color!!

Cute packaging and the e/s is interesting, different, in that you shake it with the water and then open it, the brush is attached to the cap. I like the matallic color bt the color line is limiting and also it takes a little while to dry. I think it will be better in the summer. I also think it would be a better concept for a liner!
I was in NY on vacation and wanted to see the brand being a makeup junkie. I bought one l/g #005. The product looks like my Poole l/g except not in a silver compact. I figured for 4 bucks it would not be a great find but I really like it! The color is a bronzed red and it actually has coverage! Not sheer like most cheapies. I am happy.
This is my HG of fragrances. Even when I stray I always end up coming back. I am not a floral person so I love the chocolate and foody aspects of this. People always comment when I wear this. I am probably on my 5th bottle over the years!
What's the big deal? After reading the catalogs you would think this was the HG of black eyeliner. It is pretty boring and a little dry IMHO. I like Smashbox's creamy eyeliner in Caviar better for black.
I took the plunge and bought this RUby one during the Nordstroms' summer 2003 anniversary sale. I debated sending it back - it is thick and I could not carry it every day..but it is so darn pretty and all of the colors in it made it a really good deal, and Trish's stuff is such good quality. Plus I can put in other stuff - in fact I am off today to buy another page to put all my different e/s in!!!

After trying it and liking it the first time, the next 2 experiences were not too good, it felt chalky and did not look as good, so.....I ended up returning it. Sigh.
