I have kind of fallen out of love with MAC over the past 3 or so years but this lipstick made me go back to them for it! It's so pretty and wearable, I have really pale skin that is weird and sometimes pink this super saturated look terrible on me but this one works and is versatile! Totally worth it, great formula and wear...very very happy with this lipstick...really reminded me that even if I'm not into every MAC collection I still love the quality of their best lipsticks and Candy Yum Yum is awesome and one of their best!
This is an absolutely beautiful pastel yellow that works with my pale hands but it is insanely sheer and streaky and you need 4 maybe 5 coats to get even coverage. So it's almost more effort than it's worth which is sad because this color is just such a pretty flattering shade of pale yellow. Maybe it just needs "undies" (a white or flesh toned polish underneath it) but again...more layers, more trouble, more effort to get something to work...I love sinful polishes, wish this one was more opaque. I'll use my bottle but I'm not sure if I will rebuy.

A decent lip balm...nothing astonishing but it does the job fine, really cute packaging that is super easy for me to find in my purse and / or see without my contacts in and not messy on your fingers...I got my mom some for the same reason and she loves them.
This polish is okay I think, the formula is fine and applies pretty well but I did not like the texture of the polish and I don't think it it was flattering on me personally, it looked like glittery raspberry jam on my fingers and seemed messy even though my app and clean up were neat....just not a color for me personally. I've seen it look nice on others but it seems like its one of those polishes that requires a lot of work to make it look good (IE layering gelous over it to combat that icky bumpy messy texture) and I don't like it enough to put in the extra work. I can think of tons of glittery reds that are way way way better.
This polish is sooooo pretty! The white gold color is just so flattering and nice. I also like how small and dense the glitter was, the formula of this nail polish is great. I only needed 2 coats for full coverage and it did not dry insanely gritty or bumpy. I have this and L'oreal Sparkilicious and they are similar not the same, the glitter in the L'oreal is less smooth and bigger, it also dries bumpier and was not as easy to apply as the Essie. They are also different tones of 'white gold"...They are different enough to own both in my opinion but if I had to choose it would be Beyond Cozy.
Great polish! The color is nice and saturated, opaque in 1 coat really but I always use 2. Really nice creamy, smooth formula. Is the color super unique? No...but I still really like this polish.
I love this polish! It's gorgeous and as per usual for Orlys it has a great formula that applies really really well. The holo is strong and this polish wasn't insanely chippy. I love seeing a pink holo that is not that super pale light pink color. On me at least, it did not pull red at all. Definitely pink toned. Highly recommended.
Pretty color, hated the formula...Revlon polishes are usually really great for me but the texture on this one is weird (as described in a lot of previous reviews). I notice a lot of similar blue colors are like this though...
This polish is so beautiful! It's a complex color, it's a pewter green with such amazing warm multicolored shimmer it sparkles like glitter but isn't...it's just really stunning and fairly unique. The formula is awesome, typical great OPI quality. Easily one of my favorite polishes released this year...
This is a stunning color, gorgeous glowy purple that never dries with streaks or brush lines...great formula and application! Awesome product/polish!
This did not like my nails. It gave me peeling and more yellowing issues. Just...did not work for me.
I really like AA polishes but I found this one a bit on the streaky side, and a little bit harder to work with formula wise than others...still...it's not the worst and I love the color. But I prefer Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet for formula and application...
Don't care for this one. Sinful is usually great but this polish was streaky and sheer in spots even after 4 careful thin coats. Gorgeous color in the bottle so it was super annoying to discover the formula and color pay off suck. I guess this can be layered over other colors and / or own with 'undies'...so it gets a 3.
I'm pretty pale and this looked absolutely freaking hideous on me. Just so ugly on my skintone! The formula was fine though. Usual good Essie quality mostly...a few little streaks that blended fine with the addition of topcoat. Just not for me, probably awesome looking on deeper skintones.
I really like Essie but I though the formula of my BP was horrid! Really streaky and hard to apply. Pretty color but with the pain in the ass formula...I'm just very meh on it. I wish I liked this polish more...I had the same issue with WMC but none of the other polishes from this collection were streaky or awful, just those two...
