The smell of this lipstick about killed me! I am usually ok with scented lipsticks. The Elizabeth Arden lipstick has a heavy, fruity smell, and I'm ok with it. But this one just killed me. The colors are fine, but the scent is absolutely overpowering. I felt as if I were rubbing perfume on my lips. I wore it about 10 minutes to see if I could get used to the smell, but no luck. I completely removed it and, and the smell haunted me for about an hour afterwards. So, if you are at all sensitive to scents, do not buy this lipstick!
This came out very goth/dark on me. Too dark to wear alone. It would be perfect for a witch costume at halloween! LOL! I am keeping it because it looks pretty when swirled with a light brown. I won't wear it by itself though.

I love the color of this lipstick! A deep, beautiful brown. However, it doesn't stay on in a normal way. I end up with a weird line of no lipstick in the middle while the top and bottom of my lips stil have nice pigment. I have never had that happen with a lipstick before. My lid broke off also. I do like the color though. I am not sure I would repurchase.
Seriously bright red on me! I have very pale skin and was looking for a deep, flattering red. This is very red! It is a bit too much for me, but I am keeping it. It looks pretty when swirled together with another, lighter color. I would not wear it alone, and I probably will not repurchase.

I love this! My favorite blush so far. It just looks so very natural. So often blushes are too pigmented, too shimmers, etc. This blush is none of these.

I can't get this color to show up on me at all! I even put it over the Too Faced Shadow Insurance but nothing. It is so faint, almost not there. I wonder if there is something wrong with mine. You would think at least some "noticeable" color would go on. I want to try other Duo products from Clinique, but I am a bit nervous.
Just didn't work for me. I can't see it unless I put on about 4 coats. It just doesn't show up. So far my favorite mascara is the L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes. Best out there yet. Not perfect, but so far my favorite.

I use this as a summer blush, and it works great! I am very happy with this.

Just did not work for me. I like the berry scented one, but this one was unsatisfactory. It left my hair feeling sticky and coated. I prefer a shiny, lightweight look. I also just did not care for the smell.
This is supposed to be all natural (and it may very well be), but something about the smell about killed me. It is a heavy, wet spray (not a mist), but once it dried, it did give a crunchy hold. I could not stand the smell though and ended up having to wash it out. I have been looking for an all-natursal, scent free (or at least scent tolerable, usually the all natural scents don't bother me) hairspray. No luck so far.
I like this mascara. So far it is my favorite (I think). I have never found one I like, so this must not be too bad! It does make my eyelashes spidery if I do not brush them out while it is still wet. It does clump, but the quick brushing out fixes that too. I didn't get any fakes (thank goodness). It gives a more "defined" look to eyelashes (aka, kind of that spidery look). The pictures posted above for the product are very, very accurate. If I put more than one coat on, it get that hairy spider look. Overall, it works for me. I would buy this again if I didn't like to try new mascaras so much!

This did not work for me. I could not get the hang of this unique brush. It ended up making my eyelashes clump. The color is nice, and it stays on like glue, but I just couldn't apply it correctly. It also seemed a bit thick/wet on the brush. I think this added to the clumping factor. I will not be buying it again.

I was expecting a more brown color (I like plain brown lips sometimes0, and this is a brown/reddish/muavy color. It is very pigmented and can go on light or dark. I like it and will keep it, but it is not what I was looking for. This color does look very good on me though. I am very fair with green/blue eyes.
I really wanted to like this. It is such a beautiful red in the tube, but when I put it on, it looked very orange, like a deep reddish-orange. I am still looking for a nice red-red. Yes, this is dry, but so is all matte lipstick I have tried. I liked the matte finish and how it went on. I am very sensitive to smells, and this one didn't smell like much of anything to me. The only real issue I have with it is the orange color. I am very fair, blue eyes, freckles.
