I love the idea of getting to try out new products that I otherwise wouldn't have come across and to receive brands that I heard or read about. I just received my 2nd glam bag. I was pretty happy with the first one. Good products, 3 out of the 5 I use regularly. Now today my disappointment is huge! I only got 4 products instead of the promised 5 (bb cream missing ). Also this time I only …Read more

I finally gave in and bought this type of shade that I have been eyeing for a while, but was hesitant about because I was afraid it would make my skin look corpse-like. Glad to report that it´s not the case! This color is very pretty, somewhere between periwinkle, pastel blue and lavender. I have seen similar shades on other ladies´nails, but nothing exactly like this shade, they are usually …Read more

This is my first Zoya polish. I do like the shade. It is a frosty/icy looking light pink with white undertones. It is supposed to be satin-looking, but in fact, it looks chalky. I think you will either hate or love that look. I happen to kind of like it because it is different from your cream or shimmer polish. It looks modern and a bit edgy in a way although it´s a light pink and they don´t …Read more

Love it! I just recently bought it at Nordstrom Rack. I have several shades of nude and light pinks, but nothing really comparable to this shade. It is a pinky-light browny nude and looks great with my warm and light-medium skin. Very sophisticated and wearable in any situation. Staying power was about average for me. Tip wear, minor chipping after 3 days (with topcoat). OPI brushes are the best …Read more

This is a pretty, light-medium gray with a surprising powder blue tint to it. I wasn't expecting the blue undertone since it looks all gray in the bottle. I have yellowish skin,that may make it look even more blue. The shade is growing on me though and I think it's special. I do like OPI, but oftentimes find their color choices a bit antiquated. Not this one! I think it's right on …Read more

Love the color. A modern medium-dark blue that can be either classy or edgy depending on the rest of your styling and wardrobe. It is opaque in one coat surprisingly. 2 coats for absolute perfection. It dries rather fast. I am not crazy about the brush. It caused me to make some mistakes around the cuticles. But overall,this is an amazing polish for $1.99! Better than some of my Essie's.

This is a decent bronzer for the price. The packaging is cheap, but at least you get a whole lot of product as the container is quite large. The color shade looks a bit orangey on me although I do have warm light-medium skin, but it is bearable. It does last all day and I do like it.

This is definitely not a bronzer, even for the fairest of skins I cannot imagine it. I bought it as a highlighter and it does an okay job and isn´t glittery, which I prefer. But it doesn´t really give that beautiful glow that I was hoping to get from a highlighter so I really don´t know what to use it for.

This is my first time buying a Wet´n´Wild product because I read the good reviews, but I am not too impressed. It is okay, but I wouldn´t repurchase. You need to apply carefully because if you catch too much product, you will look like a clown. But when applying scarsely, it goes on unevenly and also fades unevenly. The packaging is very cheap and the little brush it comes with is useless.

LOVE this! Purchased Lady Marmelade and it is a beautiful light red shade, kind of reminds me of strawberry jam. It feels moisturizing on the lips, but doesn't smear, it stays put. The best thing is that it lasts pretty long. I had an icecream cone that was very messy to eat and I had to wipe my mouth afterwards, yet I still had a decent amount of color left on my lips! Dabbed some lip balm …Read more
