It has been said previously, Orange Sapphire. Period. Possibly not as "sharp" as OS and a tad bit more depth. If you own OS, don't waste your money.
I bought the "fly with me" set thinking it would be fun for Easter. Let digress and say that I did not have huge expectations for these, just something fun for a weekend. I applied them Thursday night and today (Monday) they still look like new! They have survived: A two year old egg-decorating party, house cleaning, gorcery shopping and cooking Sunday Dinner...I am IMPRESSED! Regualr polish does not make it that long on me!! I do think that they are a bit expensive, I like the idea of the former reviews that cut the strips in half to get 2 applications. I would def. buy again when I need a fun nail pick -me -up! EDIT: They last 10 DAYS and still looked GREAT!!!! I actually got sick of looking at them before they started to come off!!!! Easily removed with polish remover. LOVE!!!
I also have the "Comfort Zone" palette - which I LOVE so I bought this one thinking it would be eaqually as good. Not. As previous reviewers have stated, the colors apply much differently than they appear in the palette. They become a muddy muddled mess. Very difficult to blend as well. I think I will be passing this on to a freind's teenage daughter ... Not worth the $4.99 I paid for it.
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - 8-pan Palette "Comfort Zone"

Love! love! love! this palette! I have worn this everyday since purchasing this for $4.99 at Walgreens. It has swiftly kicked all of my other eyeshadow to the curb. It is, as most have stated very pigmented, a little on the soft side which does result in a bit of fallout but the colors and the application are make this a great find. My favorite thing about this palette is that you do not have to think about which colors to apply, I have a toddler and my morning routine is rushed at best - all of the colors work amazingly well with one another. The color last all day with a primer too. Well worth the itty bitty bit of $$ you spend!
Meh... If you ENJOY applying 2-3 coats of mascara, you might like the results of One by One. IMO, you literally have to coat EACH lash "one by one" to get any length, volume, or pretty much anything else out of this. It does not cause my eyes to itch, no horrible smell, no flaking,,,just a labor intensive application. Glad I only paid about $5.00!
Of all the NYX Round Lipsticks I ordered this is close to the bottom of the list. This is only because I prefer a lip color with more...COLOR! If MAC Spice lip liner were a lipstick, this would be it. In my opinion this exactly the color of Spice liner with a tiny bit of pinkish shimmer. The shimmer does not show up once applied to your lips but it looks pretty in the tube. Not a bad color at all, just not my thing. If you like a nude lip you will probably really like this color.
I am on a listick kick! I guess all of my lippes seem old and tired so I bought a bunch of these NYX Round lippies. After much research, (the swatches on the NYX site are WAAAY off) I picked 12 colors. Hebe and Celebrate are two of my favs of the bunch. Hebe is a lovely almost "plummy" red with a hint of frosty shimmer (the good kind) it does make a great every day lipstick as well as a night out lipstick depnding on the liner that you choose, It does seem to have some gold-ish sheen to it but not in a distracting way. Overall - I love it and would def. repurchase
Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Sensational ~ Red Revival

This has "revived" my love of red lipstick! I am really liking these Color sensational lipsticks, good color choices, I like the formula and the staying power. This is a beautiful red, a nice deep red not too pink or orange. I feel Sassy! when I wear this. This is a pinup girl red. LOVE!
I too wanted to love this...great price point, great color selection, nice packaging...sorry to say that as far as product performance goes..YUCK! Thin formula, very very light coverage almost that of a tinted moisturizer and it made me really shiny, not in a glow-y kind of way. Even for the $5,00 I paid for it, it is going back to the store. This foundation would probably work for those who prefer a very light, natural looking foundation and do not have much to cover up (unlike myself)
This beautiful color does not get enough press! I purchased this (along with 11 other Round Lipsticks and this by far is my fav! If you like MAC Fresh Moroccan and Milani South Beach you will love Celebrate. It is a lovely deep russet red with pretty golden shimmer, not too frosty not too matte. I have discovered that with ALL NYX round lipsticks because they are so creamy upon application, you must apply, let the lipstick sit on your lips for a moment, and then blot..Viola! Perfection!!!!
Help! My Sinuses! Ok, this like many of the BBW products has the sneaky trait of smelling like one thing when you apply it and then BAM!! Somehow it becomes stronger and stronger and somehow very different then the scent you applied...and not in a good way. I put his on this morning and thought Hmmm, not bad. Kinda coconutty-tuberose-Tropical smelling. Half an hour later I am dying and I cannot wash this off! Very very very sweet, strong floral coconut ice cream. If you are a fan of sweet you may really like this, I personally cannot wait to scrub this off again!
Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Sensational in Cinnamon Stick

Oooo! Pretty! This is a very pretty, not too coppery, not too brown, not shimmery. I paired this with my Mary Kay Chocolate liner (my fav) and it looks amazing! It last - after blotting-about 4-5 hours- drinking coffee the entire time. Love it when these go on BOGO!
I love this too!! I found mine at the Drugstore after Christmas for half off, so I paid about $5.00 for all of these amazing shadows. Ok, so I am almost 45 but I do still love a shimmery shadow...some of these are a little too shimmery and metallic for me personally but still that would not prevent me form buying it again! They wear well all day especially with a primer underneath, I love the color selection and mine do nothave any funky smell. Would Def repurchase - can't wait the new palette to come out next Holiday season! Oh and I also have found tons of other Profusion palettes at my local Ross which I also adore!
Found these at my local Walgreen's BOGOF, so I purchase the Angel, Cashmere Mist, Opium and Light Blue. My favorites in this order are: 1) C. Mist - smells spot-on, last ALL day LOVE! 2) Opium - A pretty good dupe, in fact I may like this better the the original, not as strong but last a long time (3) Angel - not exactly like the original, it does not have as much depth nor does it have the staying power but htis actually might appeal to some more than the original version. (4) Light Blue - Eh, it is ok not an exact dupe, a little cloying but overall not bad. I would say that if you can find these BOGO, they are an excellent value, the real glass bottle is nice too and these are 3.4 oz so the product should last a while.

I was able to get a bottle of this after Christmas for $9.99 at my local drugstore. I had smelled it before and remember liking it so for the price I thought what the heck. In a word...SWEEEET! and very, very strong. It is not a horrible scent, I doubt if anyone will gag when you wear this. But be prepared to smell this ALL day, one squirt and I am drowning in my own Fancy haze. I think I will pass this one on to someone, just not doing it for me. I think that if you like Pink Sugar, BBW Warm Vanilla Sugar and the likes you will enjoy this scent.
