To me this balm is the best ever. I have tried several products for my super dry lips and nothing comes even close to this.
Things I love:
Smell - honey/lemon, not too aggressive.
Very smooth texture, leaves lips soft without making them glossy, which means I can apply any lipstick without smearing.
Lipstick does not dry out my lips and now my lips look really good (I had …

I received this balm in a swap. At least I did not spend money on this product that does nothing but dries out your lips. Oh and the smell is so plasticky or some kind of chemical smell. My husband refuses to give me a kiss if I'm wearing it, that says it all. Applies very waxy too. The only thing I like is the packaging because it is cute. Other than that I wold never ever buy it.

I see I will be a minority here but I did not like it too much for my dry lips and I had such high expectations... I was drawn to it by reading good reviews here and by many raving about it on boards. However it did little to my lips, it just sit on top of them and that's about it. It did not sink in and moisturizer them. Maybe it is good as a protectant in the cold weather but I did not …Read more

I use this polish as a top coat and I must say it gives me the effect I'm looking for. My nails have this wet shine that I like, it holds my polish under it very well, not cracking, not fading, no chipping and it dries fast. The brush is wide and I like it as well. Mine did not get clumpy at all but I'm half way through the bottle maybe it will later but so far for the price it is a …Read more

Vey pale cool pink wish microscopic shimmer to it. With two coats it is still pretty sheer, so three coats might be needed depending on what you like. What I love the most about this polish that it stays on for a week with a top coat. I work at the hospital where I wash my hands many many times, so staying power is very important to me and this polish does it just right :)

Feb/15/2013

First I would like to note that I am reviewing 187se brush. I like this brush a lot since it gives me this airbrushed look when using liquid foundation. It does not leave any streaks and applies the product very well, giving a decent coverage and not looking mask like at all. My only problem is that this brush sheds :( if not for that I would give is brush a 5/5 but for now it has to be 4/5. Do …Read more

I love this blush and I find myself using it almost daily. The color suits my fair tone skin perfectly. It is pinky-peachy color which once applied gives this nice illuminating sheen on the highest point of the cheek. So using this blush really eliminates the need for the highlighter for the cheekbones. Some say that they do not like the packaging, well I love it, not only it is pretty and …Read more

Got this brush from one generous swapper and I must say this is not a powder brush by no means it is terrible for powders, but it is great for liquid foundation. It is super soft and very dense and applies foundation like a dream. No streaks just fast and flawless application. I saw others stating that it sheds, well mine does not shed at all.
I use this brush when I'm getting ready …

I really really like this product. I received a sample of it in a swap and was not sure if I want to use it at all because I have oily flat. Everything that says smooth or glossing is a big no no for me. I'm glad I did try this. It actually added volume to my hair and did not dry them our too much. Just bought two bottles of it online. Love it :)

I absolutely love this product, although I'm not a huge fan of MK. I received it in a swap as an extra item and God bless the person who decided to give it to me :) It's consistenct appears to be vaseline like, but it is not oily and my skin absorbs it very well. I love how my skin feels after the application; it is smooth, super soft and velvety. I apply it to my hands and to my legs …Read more
