got it as a gift and would probably repurchase. this is the best color in the line for my skin color and its not an overwhelming shade. i dont believe it fully conditions my lips because after an hour or 2 they r flaky again. i dont like that it is in a pot thugh, i hate having to use my fingers so i use a brush which automaticlly make it unportable

my new favorite eyeshadow. didnt crease and had nice staying power all day. even lasted a schoolday 7 to 3 and dance practice 5 to 9.
I am very disappointed with this polish. I was excited because everyone on here described it as a sheer milky white/beige/pink that looks good on all skin tones. Well to me it is way too sheer, 5 coats (no joke) to get the slightest payoff and itís still incredibly sheer. I guess it gives a clean look; I bought this for color guard because we really can't have bright colors when we perform but this is just non existent. Iíve seen clear coats with more color than this. I was expecting a little more pink in it so I put 2 drops of true red in it and it made it a little better. To me when it comes in the bottle the way it is bought it just looks like wax when you dip your finger into the bottom of the candle. I'll give it a 3 because it does do the job of letting me wear nail polish during a show. I got it a bit of sale which is good. The polish is way too thin and watery for its price. People are giving t high reviews so they must be looking for this type of style finish but I feel a bit mislead. Maybe its my won fault. a vry dissapointing first Essie nail polish, I am now skeptical of the others. I think I will stick to OPI from now on. EDIT: ok, i realize i was way too harsh because i realize how clean and natural my nails look with this on. i raised it a lippie
i wanted to love this mascara but i hate the brush i hate the clumps and i hate that the shimmer is so fine that its almost not there. boo to this product and i wont repurchase. it also seems to resist curl
this is my favorite mascara becuse its affordable and i think it actually works. i hate they new rubber brushes CG is trying to push out on the masses. i still like the bristles. the night side comes out a little thinker than the day but i still use the night in the day too :) will totally repurchase again
i got this in stir crazy and its really nice. i olny dont like the fact that i have to use my finger b/c i'm a germaphobe but the colors were so cool that i had to buy one. i just use a lip brush instead.
they have some nice colors in this line. i'll admit they are very expensive, more so than just regular opi polishes. the bottle size is 15ml, so its decent and will last a while. some of the colors that arent shimmery tend to be steaky.
for some reason i thought this was going to be a but more of a taupe gold but its a bit too yellow-y for me but it goes on nicely
think this is a pretty blue but its nothing new. it was very expensive and i wont be purchasing again. it did go on nicely though
its an ok pumpkin orange that i bought because my friend pushed me to be adventurous. its definately not my favorite color and i wont be purchasing again. it sent on a tad streaky and i had to use 3 coats EDIT: ive decided that this color is a nasty carrot orange that i hate. will only use on my toes at camp.

I was in sephora yesterday and I've been eyeing these polishes for a while, always testing them first because they are expensive. It's an okay purple, to me it looks lighter in the bottle and a bit like barney the dinosaur on the nail but I still like it. I used 2 maybe 3 coats. I wouldn't purchase this again.

Yummy smell and very moisturizing. A tax greasy maybe but it's al forgiven. My favorite body butter. There are two sizes. I got the small and it lasted me a reasonable amount of time. I would buy this again
I got 6 of these for $22 which I think is a pretty good deal considering itís usually $22 for ONE. I think that price is unfair for so little in the tube so I took a lippie off. They are a little sticky but I kinda like that because it seems to last longer. The smell is ok on most but I donít like the apricot smell, but thatís probably just me. It took about 20 clicks for me to get anything out of the tube and they donít last long. I donít think itís worth the money at all if you did not purchase the kit like I did. The color isnít really strong and some of them are a little too frosty (vanilla, brown sugar, raisin). I wonít be repurchasing.

its cheep and has a nice color but it goes on weirdly and the brush is annoyingly small.
Iím torn with this. I like the color but I donít like how on my lower lids it kinda just jumps over my lashes to I have a weird coverage and I have to smudge it around a lot. And when I put it on my water like I tear up like crazy and it stings my eyes. I wont be buying this again, Iím gonna look for another brown eyeliner.
