Lipstick -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter in Pink Truffle

This is a fantastic color, MLBB, a nice warm nude/ brown/ pinkish red that wavers between natural and slightly seductive in a dark, mature-chic sort of way.
I would give this a 4.5 if possible. Anyway, what I really like about this perfume is that it gets better as the day goes on. It starts out kind of cool, overly rose and watery, which some people like I suppose, but as it wears on it becomes warmer, richer, and more honeyed. It's light and subtle but not understated, soft, romantic, relaxing and captivating. If it lasted a little longer and started out with softer, less floral notes, I would give it a 5. But I love this perfume.
Such a seductive, deep red shade, PERFECT for the whole evening mysterious red-nailed woman look. I get compliments on this whenever I wear it. It looks too harsh / vampire-y with pale skin tones, but it looks amazing on medium skintones to dark skintones, so I recommend this for anyone NC20/ NC25 and more.
Lips -Cover Girl - Outlast Lipstain - 435 Flirty Nude

Surprisingly I actually liked this product. The color payoff was great with my NC30 skin. The only big problem I noticed was that this lipstain accentuates the creases in your lips DRAMATICALLY, and it looks kind of bad. Of course, most people don't stare at your lips, but I've never had that experience with any lip gloss / lipstick and it isn't a very flattering look on anybody. I put on some lip balm before I applied and that may have helped decrease the problem a bit. All in all, I would recommend this for girls with medium to dark skintones, but beware if you have dry lips / deep lip creases, since this does highlight every dent and crease in your lips.
I would rate this a 3.7, to be more specific. Nice color, kind of frosty, but doesn't show up very easily on my NC30 skin, I have to swipe more than a few times firmly just to get some nice color on my cheeks.
Cute mint color! Big problem is that its super streaky and hard to layer without looking ugly, as most people have posted on here.
The best nude on my NC30/NC35 skin! It looks flattering on many skin tones of my friends and in many lightings, etc. I just love it. But I can never seem to find it anymore, has it been discontinued?
First off, as everyone's been saying, the packaging is extremely misleading. It was like 7 bucks for a tiny ordinary sized tube of balm, when beside it were many more cheaper alternatives that were similar-sized. As a balm, it's alright in terms of moisture, nothing special..I expected more coming out of Burt's Bees since this is my first Burt's Bees product and everyone raves about their lip balms. In terms of color payoff, there really is barely any at ALL. If I stared really hard at my mouth maybe I could notice a tiny bit, but it's PINK, not even red! Ugh, so misleading.
Like most Nars blushes, this blush is highly pigmented and smooth. I'm NC35, maybe NC40 late in the summer, and this blush looks great on me. A pretty peachy pink glow without looking overdone or made-up at all. It really adds an extra touch of 'natural prettiness' to your face, and I would highly recommend this for medium / tan girls! I would rate it 5, but I knocked off 1 for the price. I'm not saying it isn't worth it, but you can get blushes VERY similar to this color at the drugstore, for half the price.
Blush -Cover Girl - Instant Cheekbones Contouring Blush - Peach Perfection

NC30 / 35 here. This blush is quite pigmented and shows up with only a few swipes, so that's good :) I think the middle color is really the only wearable shade in terms of blush. It looks pretty, although definitely a lot more pink than peach, I don't even think it should be called peach. It's a very neutral looking pink. The darker color...eh, it works somewhat as a blush if you're tanner, not very good for contouring. The lightest color is good for a subtle highlight. All in all, I recommend this.
This product got rave reviews and it looked so pretty in the store that I bought it. Plus, I've been on the hunt for a nice peachy/ shimmery glowy sort of bronzer. This product barely shows up on my skin. I've literally scraped the brush as hard as I could against the color to see if it would make a difference on how many pigments I picked up but no luck--it seems to all disappear when I apply it into my skin. Maybe it's just that the brush it comes with is crappy, but regardless of the brush, the pigments should still show up. I have a medium sort of tan-ish skin tone, maybe NC30 or NC35. If you're not too pale, I don't recommend investing in this, save your money for something else.
