I have very dry and cracked lips for quite some time. I've been trying a lot of lipbalms but those lipbalms only give me temporary effects and I have to keep re-applying it throughout the day. After reading good reviews & recommendations on this Cocoa Butter lipcare stick, I decided to give it a try. And I'm totally in love with it. None of the lipbalms that I have tried previously gave me the same effect that I had with this Cocoa Butter lipcare stick. It is so moisturizing and I don't need to re-apply it every now and then. It is by far the best lipbalm that I've ever tried and has quickly becomes my HG lipbalm. I would definitely re-purchase it....loving it....
Lipstick -Revlon - ColorBurst in 070 Soft Nude [DISCONTINUED]

I picked up Revlon Soft Nude and Mac Viva Glam Gaga 2 today. Mac Viva Glam Gaga 2 is a bit darker in color as compared to Revlon Soft Nude (more sheer) and both are buildable and also wearable nude color IMO. I love the formula of Revlon Soft Nude as its very moisturizing and not drying my lips. But its a bit pricey though considering its a drugstore lipstick. Anyway, I really like the color and would re-purchase it. :)
Initially I was thinking to get Hue lipstick today but it was unavailable at my local store. End up I got Viva Glam Gaga 2 which I have never thought that I would purchase this lipcolor (i thought it would be concealer-like lipcolor). But the color appeared to be a nice nude color when i swatched it on my hand and I decided to give it a try. I am so glad that I picked up this color coz its really a lovely nude color and doesn't wash me off. Loving it....^^
Lipstick -BeneFit Cosmetics - Silky Finish in Hug It Out

When I first saw the color on the tube, I kinda regret as I was looking for some peach-brown nude color. But when applying it on my lips, it feels so moisturizing and actually not a bad color at all. It leaves a healthy sheen with a bit of shimmers on my lips and it is by far my favourite lipstick and I really like its formula. Will definitely re-purchase it.
Crush is a nice peachy-coral color and looks good on my fair skin. But I found it a bit drying on my lips and I hate the packaging. The tube looks very fragile and can break anytime. Overall, I quite like the color and might re-purchase it in future.
This is by far my favourite blush. Its shimmery peachy-pink color and very flattering when applying on my cheeks. Its my HG blush and will definitely re-purchase this. Love it!
I was looking for coral-peachy blush for awhile. After reading all the good comments about this, I finally placed an order for this. Sadly, this color is too orangey and doesn't suit my skintone. I would prefer Springsheen over this. Will not re-purchase this.
When I first got it, I don't really like it coz it looks frosty when applying on my lips without makeup. After awhile, I decided to give it another try. And I started to like it more and more. Its very sheer golden nude color and it looks good to apply it alone or underneath other lipcolor. I will definitely re-purchase this. :)
After reading the good reviews of this product, I was so tempting to try this. I really wanted to like this color. When I swatched it on my hand, its a pretty pink color. But when I apply it on my lips, it looks like a grey pink mauve color. It makes my face looking pale and like a sick person. It just didn't look good on me and the formula is very drying too. Will not re-purchase this. Edited: - I found a way to apply Blankety i.e. apply The Bodyshop Cocoa Butter lipbalm (my new found HG lipbalm) on my lips before applying Blankety. It looks much better now and I no longer look like a sick person :) I've no idea why the lipbalm plays such an important role but it really does and has changed my entire view about Blankety.
It's mauve-nudey color and looks very natural on my lips without any lipstick. Smooth application and good consistency. It's one of my favourite lipgloss by far. Recommended!
This is a great everyday lipgloss. I like to apply it without any lipstick underneath. Its very natural and flattering on me. Good lasting power too...Love it!
This is one of my favourite NYX lip color. From the tube, it looks very dark. I usually apply a layer on my lips, then smooth it with my finger. It appears to be very natural and healthy color on my lips. Highly recommended! :)
