this was disappointing. i wanted to love it, but i just couldn't. in the pan, it looks absolutely gorgeous, a peachy pink with shimmer. but when i actually tried it on, it just didnt look right on me. (i'm an asian LLL with dark hair and eyes.) i swear...even with a light hand, this made my cheeks look kind of orange!- not a look i was going for. but this was very pigmented with great lasting power, even on my oily skin. im sure this suits many others, just wasn't it for me. =( swapped for orgasm, and loooovvvee it!
i finally got this today at sephora and am already loving this baby! i love everything about this gloss. cute, simple packaging, great cinnamon buble gum scent, tastes good, and it feels good. makes my lips slightly plumber (just a wee bit though), rosier, and shinier, but def. not the tacky kind of shine. i wish it plumped up lips even more though. the tingly feeling is pretty mild. the more you put on, the more tingly it'll get. i like to put on a lot, just because i love the way it feels. expensive though for the amount...so i took off a l/s. EDIT- no staying power at all. so i give this a three rating.
this doesnt wash me out and gives me a caramellish-pink nude. the smell is alright, chemical. ill say this is decent for the price
this is a gorgeous brownish crimson red. matte. not too drying and lasts a long time on my lips. i choose this whenever i want to look a little more grown up. =D i LOVE this shade.
i love this! looks super natural. i use it on cheeks and lips with clear gloss over it.

got this at target for only 2.44 on sale! whoo-hoo! it goes on like my natural lid color, so it'll work as an awesome base shade. lasts quite a long time. this broke in my bag though. =(

this blush is beautiful! its a very pigmented tawny pink that looks supernatural on me. lasts all day. even though i've had this for a long time, i just started reaching for this and fast becoming a staple. and its inexpensive! just one more reason to head over to sephora!

this is the prettiest purple ever when used wet! i Love it . only rant is that when it starts to fade, it'll go from vibrant purple to grayish purple.
awesome shade. although this looks like a true red in the bottle, it goes on more like a cherry-magenta red. looks like true red from far away though. gorgeous color but lacking in shine, so i put clear nail polish over it.
im in love! its such a gorgeous red. love opi polishes. they go totally even and smooth. LOOOOVVVEEE

been using this for two months but haven't notice much improvement. doesnt absorb into the skin so it feels like a thick greasy film on my face but in the morning, it seems to make my skin a bit softer. ok, but it just doesn't seem to do much of anything. =(

didnt seem to be really effective. =( maybe i should try clean and clear persagel instead...
this is such a pretty gloss! i got it as a gift. thanks sandra!!! [mochaice619]. it smells absolutely yummmy. i drool over this. its a very pretty sheer pink color with bluish sparkles to it. it goes on a clear-rosy pink and is super suppperr shiinny, although def. not tacky. other supershiny glosses look weird on me..but not this. hmm...kinda weird actually. this is my first hard candy gloss and im very impressed with it. definitely gonna try more. highly recommend!
this was one of my first blushes! and i totally dig it! its more of a peach color than pink, but goes on as a pinkish peach. the smell is very strong and is like noxema- so i wont rec this blush to those who are overly sensitive with scents. this takes a couple of layers to make this show on my LLL skin, but thats ok. the name of this blush is very appropriate as this really appears as a natural glow . cant go wrong with this blush if you're somewhere b/w a PPP-MMM and not sensitive to the smell. would repurchase again.
from the reviews of the blue in the nars rated r duo, blue flag sounds a lot like it. ive seen tthe duo at sephora before, but never really paid much attention to it. i think the blue in the duo is a tad bit brighter, but nevertheless, this is a very attention-catching intense cornflower blue. it also has lots of fine turqoise-aqua shimmer to it, but it doesnt show much on your eyes unless you really pack the eyeshadow on. i dont really wear this much in public anyways mainly becuase i dont really know how to wear it. but i think this is a rather retro and funky shade, just not for those who dont like bold e/s. i wont have bought this from the looks of it, (it was a gift thanks amber!), but its still a keeper and i enjoy having this. i wish there was a mirror with this, though!!!
