This is the best lipglass I've got in a while. It looks bright fuschia in the tube, but it goes on a nice, almost sheer bright pink. It is very reminiscent of Barbie and her whole recognizable look. Beautiful, MAC really hit one out with this.
Eye Makeup Remover -Maybelline - Expert Eyes 100% Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover

For a while this was my HG eye makeup remover. It removed everything (I use UDPP everyday, so my e/s is always intact at the end of the day) and didn't smell or leave my eyes greasy. But they must have reformulated recently, because the last bottle I bought had different printing and it didn't work at all. It left UDPP on my eyes, along with most of my mascara and e/s. I don't know how they changed it, but it is unfortuante that they did.

The color of this stick is a great soft pink, perfect for the beach or just running errands. The texture is nice upon application, but it seems to dry out quickly. I don't mind the reapplication, but some might. It is handy to have, but I wish it would stay soft on the lips a little longer.
This is a great cool-toned pink l/g. It gives my lips a nice polished look, without being a overbearing color. Pretty mauvey pink. Agree that it is a lot like Negligee without the sparkle, but a little pinker IMO. I hope MAC rereleases this at some point.
This is my HG grey e/s. It has a nice frosty texture, very smooth application, and on my skin (N3, PPP) it is a beautiful, shimmery, soft charcoal grey. I don't get the blue/taupe/brown tones that other reviewers got. It is a perfect color for smokey eyes and also looks awesome paired with Brill and Phloof. I just hope I can find it again once I use it all up!

I was not initially going to buy this color, but after looking at it a few times, I decided it was worth my money. It is different from anything else I own. It is a light iridescent shade, not really leaning one way or the other when it comes to actual color. It looks great over Bombshell lipstick or paired with Pretty Please, also from the Lure collection. It would also look good over any lip product with a strong color. I also love the aqua packaging!
To be honest, I only got this because I have the blush, but I'm very glad I bought this. It is a nice peachy shade, without being too orange or pink. I'm fairly pale (NW15ish) and it is a nice subtle look. It has good staying power and is not overly sticky. The smell is not the best, but can be easily overlooked. And it does look great when paired with Orgasm blush!

This color is something I normally wouldn't even look at, but I'm glad I did. I don't do gold/yellow, but mixed with the olive green it leaves a beautiful sheen on the eyes. I've used it in the crease so far and am very pleased with how it looks on me. I've paired it with All that Glitters and Phloof! and it makes a nice neutral eye. And since I don't own Tendermetal or the other mentioned look-alikes, I'm glad I picked this up!
This is possibly one of the best neutral lipglosses EVER!! It is a beautiful pinky browny tannish, I can't even describe it. It looks good mixed with brighter pinks and looks wonderful on its own. It is great when you're running late for work and need to grab something. Own it, I do!!
I can't even begin to say how much I wanted this product to work well. But alas, it has let me down. I bought color 105 on ebay, as I wanted to make sure I liked it before dropping $25 at the department store. The color was a great match, but beyond that, it just didn't work for me at all. It settled in the pores next to my nose and turned a horrid yellow/orange color. It accentuated every minute dry patch anywhere on my face. It left my face with an odd chalkyish film or something. I tried applying it with my fingers, a sponge, and a brush, but it always gave the same crappy results. I had read such great reviews of this and how well it worked for oily skin, but I guess its back to the foundation drawing board for me!

The fact that the proceeds from this go to Big Brothers Big Sisters (who happen to be my employer at this time) is the main reason I bought this gloss. The product itself is just okay. The smell is great and the package is cute. The color itself is not bad, although I am very fair and I can see how this would not look good on someone with darker skin. It is very thin and has absolutely no staying power. It basically looks like a slight sheen on my regular lip color. If they could oomph up the staying power a bit, this would be great over lipsticks. I said yes to buying the product again, but only because I couldn't put undecided.
I'm loving Damzel. I thought that it would be similar to some of the many MAC pink toned lipglasses I have (Cultured, Dreamy, Oi!Oi!Oi!) but it definitely stands apart. It doesn't scream pink on my lips, its just a very nice, neutral toned pink with a nice iridescent sheen, better then the loads of glitter some lipglasses have. I haven't paired it with anything else yet, but I am definitely going to have to try that! I'm PPP, NW15-20 I think.

This product is just awful. First of all, I have to agree with the other posters about the smell. What the heck! I can't smell it until I put it on, but there is a strong fishy smell to it. Gross. Second, it did absolutely nothing for my eye area. I still have bags and dark circles, it did nothing it claimed it would. I usually like Neutrogena, but this just sucks. The only positive thing I can say is that it didn't make my eye area worse! I will never buy again.
Fabulous color! Looks great on me, nice soft berry shade. I love Lustreglasses and this is one of my favorites.
I'm liking this so far. I didn't have a good neutral gloss before this, and while this isn't the typical neutral, it is working for me. It is quite sparkly, more then I thought at first, but not overly sparkly. It doesn't look very pink on me, just a basic nude. Definitely glad I bought it.
