I have this in blackberry, raspberry, grenadine and candy. Love them all and the packaging is gorgeous. Candy is a beautiful berry pink with gold shimmer. It smells like a watermelon jolly rancher and goes on really smooth and glossy. It's not sticky, yet it feels very moisturizing on and lasts a good 2 hours. I wear it over Two Faced perfect nude lip liner and I'm good for the day.
It's an odd color but paired with a bright fuschia or sparkly pink lipstick really tones the color down to something office wearable. Get this color!!
After hearing so much about fluidline I decided to give it a try and dipdown is excellent! It goes on so smoothly and is rich and dark. Some gel liners fade as you're brushing it on back and forth but this one maintains its rich color. I never thought I'd find a gel liner with such awesome pigmentation and longevity, esp. considering my oily lids. So I'm very please with this purchase and look forward to using it every day.
Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Sensational High Shine

Purchased Plum Shine (#830) and really like it. It's moisturizing, stays in place, and feels quite hydrating on the lips. I don't feel the need to lick it off and it doesn't make my lips peel. It does not have a high shine or mirror shine as the name implies, but it has a nice shimmery gloss. Plum shine is a plum/dark red more than a purple plum. It's really pretty on and would suit many skin tones.
Lip Gloss -Maybelline - Color Sensational Lip Gloss in Pink Perfection

I have 5 of these glosses and really like the texture, consistency and moisturizing feel. Pink perfection is a fairly sheer pink with silver shimmers. It's not gritty and you cannot feel the shimmers, it's very natural feeling. I wear this over glosses and lipsticks and it's beautiful.
Purchased from Hautelook and very happy with the color. It's a gorgeous bronze color with gold shimmer, looks amazing on tanned and darker skins. Very moisturizing, non-sticky, zero longevity. You have to continuously reapply as it doesn't last. But, the color is pretty enough and I don't mind reapply as the packaging is so cute!
Lipstick -Revlon - Super Lustrous in Kiss Me Coral

Love the retro packaging, although it chips and scrapes easily. Looks coral in the tube but is an orange/red on my lips (African-Am with yellow undertones). Very pretty color but to wear this I only use black eyeliner and light face powder - nothing shimmery or bright because I want the focus on my lips. I put it on lightly at first with a bit of Burt's Bees at first but as the day wore on and I felt more comfortable, I layered it on more thickly and really loved it. It's smooth, creamy and non-drying. I think this is wearable for any skin tone as you can control how much you want on your lips, from a stain to a bright pop. Would repurchase this again and again.
Lip Gloss -New York Color - Liquid Lipshine in Brighton Beach Peach (575)

Awesome gloss!! Purchased it last night from CVS and loved it immediately. Smells wonderfully good, like vanilla shakes & cookies and it's beautifully glossy and peachy without the stickiness. It adheres well to my lips and fills in the lines, feels like an expensive gloss, like Buxon but for much less. Ladies, get this gloss!!
Bronzers -Victoria's Secret - Mineral Bronzing Powder in Wild Thing

If this were still available I'd totally buy a back-up! I'm a caramel complected Af Am with yellow undertones and this looks so good dusted all over the face using a large kabuki. I got complimented by a guy that said I looked "tanned and glowing." This stuff's phenomenal and I really wasn't expecting to like it that much. The shimmer is subtle but the glow it gives is phenomenal. Some bronzers orange me out but this is perfect for my skintone.
