I think this new product by Rimmel is fantastic. After seeing some really great reviews on MUA about this product I decided to give it a shot. It definitely didn't disappoint. Firstly, although many people complain about the spatula I find that it is very convenient. Also, it helps to keep the product clean(no icky mess around the rim). Formula wise this product is pretty thick, but it doesn't feel thick or cakey once applied. The texture is that of a creamy mousse and feels really good on the skin. Some people have pointed out that it is difficult to blend, but if you moisturize before applying it should blend like a charm. Coverage wise, this product is great. It really covers redness and I only have to apply concealer to fresh acne scars and blemishes. Although the product states that it gives a poorless appearance I find this to be untrue. Still the overall look after application is much like the name states, " clean". I'd have to say that this product is tied with Revlon colorstay for #1 drugstore foundation in my collection.

Overall this product is great. I bought this a CVS while it was on clearance for about $1.75. I like the packaging and the texture. This conditioner feels like a balm on your lips, but looks more like a gloss. I would stay away from this product if you are looking for a very pigmented lip product, as it is very sheer. It has just a tint of color (I bought it in soft peach). All in all, it is the perfect lip product for me and it feels great on my lips. I'll be heading back to CVS soon to see if I can find any different shades for this price!

I love this product! It doesn't feel sticky on your skin. It absorbs well so you can apply your makeup quickly after(also makes skin really smooth so your makeup has a good base). I really like applying this moisturizer after I use a mask. I always add a bit extra under my eyes to as a sort of eye cream. Definitely worth the price.

When I walked into my local Walgreen's today I hadn't planned on picking up this product, but when I found out that the wet 'n' wild singles were 1/2 price ( $.99 how can ya beat that?!?!) I decided to pick up Envy. Boy am I glad that I did! The texture and pigmentation are both very good quality. Also, the color looks very nice with my brown eyes/hair and medium/fair skin! Definitely a product to check out!
