Bang is a lovely punchy orange-red, but it barely shows up as a natural flush on my dark skin (with fairly heavy application). Would probably be better for lighter skin tones. Has a nice texture and blends well (as far as I can tell!).

I went to MAC looking for a nude lipstick for my Back to Mac and couldn't find any that looked good with my skintone....so I went for a red and ended up with this after trying many colors! I don't like a heavy lipstick look, so I put Cherry liner underneath to brighten it a little and then a sheer layer of Diva, and it ends up looking great with my skintone. I hate looking for lipsticks …Read more

Beautiful dark berry color on my pigmented lips. I tend to have dry lips, so I put on some Aquaphor and then a layer of this on top, which ends up with a more lip gloss look than lipstick as that's what I prefer. The color is buildable, so you can put on as much as you want to get the look you desire and it doesn't feel drying. Would definitely repurchase this.

I received this in a swap, kind of on a whim (so I can't really comment on price) and I love it! I apply with the stick and then smudge out with my fingers (does take a bit to get it even). I am currently wearing it all over the lid with Nars Mekong in the outer V and MAC Woodwinked in the inner eye, and blended at the edges. I haven't worn it a lot since it makes a more smoky …Read more

I have 4c natural hair, and I did not like the stripped and stringy feeling that the Babassu Marshmallow and Neem & Tea Tree shampoo bars gave to my hair. I combed through when the soap was in and after rinsing, and it felt as if my hair was weak and was going to break. I did use the ACV rinse afterward, which recovered a good feeling, but I would rather not feel that I was stripping my hair …Read more

Love this eyeshadow! It is the perfect shade for everyday use with a little pop. Goes well on my medium brown skin (NW45) with my standard browns and other neutrals (MAC Woodwinked, Twinks, Bronze).

Great product, I just got this today and couldn't wait to try it. It is so light, with a definite whipped texture, but so moisturizing at the same time. Looking forward to using this every day, my cheeks and under eye area feels so soft!

Edit: Started out using it all over my face 1x per day (at night), but started to get bumps on my forehead after a couple days. Switched to using …
