Lipstick -Revlon - Superlustrous Lipstick - Demure (LE)

I got this at Walmart, so I think I paid less than I would have at CVS, etc. This is very muck like a balm in my opinion, very sheer color and very moisturizing. Staying power is also balm like - it lasts a couple of hours at best and disappears when you eat. Its a tiny bit frosty. Not at all what I had expected- I picked it up randomly and expected a more matte and stronger color. The shade itself is quite nice on my NC35, yellow toned skin. Its fine for days I want to look polished but not made up. I probably won't be purchasing again.
LOVE IT! I use mine to apply my Dior BB creme and other liquid foundations. I tap the foundation on with my brush on a couple of places on my face, but quickly and done in about 2 minutes! I loved this so much I went and got the other powder brush which I use to apply my blush.

This is one of the few products I've actually thrown away after using a couple of times. Most products I'll try to make work, this just wasn't worth it. The one positive, the color was not a bad match.
I'm a bit of a foundation junkie and have tried many, many many foundations. I also am careful with money and don't spend anything close to $50 dollars on a single product. But, this was money very well spent for me. I have very yellow tone skn and most other BB cremes are either too light or too gray for me. I find this product really intruiging - it feels very light, like I"m not wearing any makeup. But it covers redness and evens my skin, giving it a nice dewy glow. It also lasts a good amout of time but at the end of the day, after it fades it sort of leaves my skin looking good on its own. Its kind of hard to describe. This is one of the few foundations/BB creams, I'll actually buy again. I highly recommend this BB cream. Most other I"ve tried had zero coverage and my skin is generally not too bad except for redness.
Didn't work for me at all. Its way to light and grey and sort of drying. When I first put it on, my skin seems moisterized but after that the BB cream dries on my skin and makes my skin dry along with it. I've been using it with my Kevin Aucoin sensual skin enhancer and its worked ok. The KA product is really pigmented and a bit too dark and yello for me. This combo lightens up the color and makes the KA a bit less dewy.
Love it! I have this in the lighter color and I'm NC35 for reference. This gives me the most natural looking glow. I don't have the same issue as many other reviewers have with glitter BUT my bronzer fell quick soon after I got it (free I might add with a Physician's Formula coupon from CVS) and the top part of the dome broke off. Instead of trying to save it, I threw it out. The remaining bronzer has very little glitter, more of a subtle shimmer. Love it and use it every day.
I finally tried this. The good: Early Tan in spot on for my NC35 skintone and this lasts longer than other foundations. However, its still not "the one" as some days it can either look too sheer, too cakey or disapper after a few others. But until I find "the one" this will be just fine. Oh, and in spite of having dry skin, I got the normal skin version. For some reason they have many more colors in the normal skin formula it seems.

Love it! I used to use the other one in the red container by the same company but I like this more and here's why - you can find it easily at most CVS stores, and the powder is somewhat finer so your hair/roots don't feel quite as sticky. Easy to use and really works!

Awful. Made my hair gummy, greasy and horrible. I wish I kept my reciept.
I totally fried my hair -bleach, color,color correction, more bleach, color, etc. This brought my hair back to life when nothing else worked.

When I first put this in my hair in the shower my hair felt great - super soft and silky which is always a good sign. After the shower, when I started to dry my hair, it started to feel a bit sticky. A couple of hours later, my hair felt super greasy and looked horrible. I wish I kept the reciept! The Brazilian Keratin conditioner by One n Only is much better!

Love, love, love this shade. I'm always looking for a my-lips-but-brighter shade and this is it. Its a peachy nude and very matte so if matte is not your thing skip this.
I've been wearing this on and off for about the last 10 years or so... Its my fall back foundation. Great color selection. I'm NC35 and it matches my skin better than any other foundation - ever. The coverage is quite light I would say and if you try to build it up its very obvious. Staying power is ok, I wish it was mineral based but I guess one can't have it all. I apply with the sponge it comes with and then spray my Fix Plus over it. It totally takes away any powerdy look and actually looks really natural - like I'm not wearing any foundation at all.

Love it! For reference, I"m NC35 with yellow undertones. I've been searching for a while for a pinky brown lip gloss. Most glosses don't have enough color and my lips end up looking like I just ate something greasy. But, its not too much pigment, which I don't like either, the gloss on top of lipstick look. I also really like the consistency as my lips have been super dry lately and it makes them hydrated. Finally, the fact that this comes in lipstick form makes it easy to reapply without needing a mirror. EDIT: althought still very pretty when first applied, it fades funny.

I had such high hopes. I'm searching for an HG foundation, good color match, dewy, doesn't magnify pores... you know, all the things we are all looking for. Well, this isn't it. 2.0 is a decent enough color match but if I put a good amount on it looks very makeup-y and fake. And after a while my skin starts to look super dry. And the lasting power isn't so great IMO. At least I didn't pay full price as I bought it at an outlet store.
