I got the shade Pour Toujours as a birthday sample from Ulta. It's not a bad nude color, but a little boring. But the formula really isn't great. It's so matte that it tugs on the lips and it's hard to actually apply. It's great that it doesn't transfer, but you can barely transfer it to your lips! I just think a stick lipstick needs more glide. It's almost like …Read more

This is a great cleanser. I got a generous size sample that I have been using in my overnight/gym bag and I'm almost done with it. I never had any issues with makeup removal and it didn't irritate my skin (many things do). I looked it up and it's quite pricey and I do prefer my DermaDr Brightening Daily Cleanser so I won't be buying this myself. But I think it's really …Read more

I love this color but I really don't like the formula. I bought a similar color from a brand called Rude Cosmetics in the color "Bad to the Bones". It's also dry but it's better. I wear this SO often, and I got it from a friend but I can't say I would buy it again just because of how it feels on. There's so many formulas I like so much more, especially from Nyx …Read more

I got this in a pack of three, and all three were pretty good in formula. Some of the older ones I had had were more dry and it seems they got better in time. This is a pretty shade and it's flattering, but probably my least favorite of the bunch. It's not bad, just the other two are really my speed (Addis Ababa and Sao Paulo). And as you can see from the images, it's similar to …Read more

This is a beautiful color!!! It's actually less dry and has a better formula than some of the older ones. Overall I had a love hate relationship with this line, but they are affordable and last a while. This one is up with my favorites. I bought it in a 3 pack and I'm so glad I did!

This was nice but I find I prefer the Smith's Rosebud ones (after not initially liking them). I use one with spf during the day, so like the first reviewer, this was just a night balm. I bought it on clearance and then I guess they decided to keep it because I'm seeing it come back in stores, along with more lip oils. I love keeping lip balm tins for jewelery etc. It was ok, but I …Read more

I heard about this stuff from Jamie French and I bought it through Macy's. It was impossible to find in store but I was able to order it and use sales so it was really affordable. I mainly wanted it to dilute a gel liner so it would go on easier, maybe even to dilute liquid liners that are either too thick or starting to dry. This definitely exceeded my expectations! It's so silky, you …Read more

I was all hyped about these but to be honest I'm not feeling they are really that great. I heard about cutting them in half, which I planned to do, but the ones I received are already pretty standard size and small. They are soft and I like that there is no hard bits in there, but they also aren't worlds different to me than the regular ones I get from Ulta when I'm trying to make …Read more

I'll be real. Mine is a gift from TJMaxx and not some fancy brand. But I'm putting this review here because I don't think it matters which brand people get. I can't say the price value except that I think it's mostly bullshit so it's not a very great one. Does massaging your skin being blood flow? Sure. Does cooling the roller or using anything cool help …Read more

WOAH the reviews made me not want to try this.... But, I really wanted a nice berry shade and every shade I looked at was too pink or too red or too purple and I really wanted a nice mix. Plus I had a coupon. So I picked up "Believer".

Yea, the formula is tricky as hell. But I found the trick is *NOT* to blot or press your lips. Don't go crazy with the layering and just …
