I have a very different experience with this than the previous reviewer. I am an NW20 with very (pink) pigmented lips. This actually looks like a great neutral earthy nude on me, used alone, and is pigmented enough to neutralize the pink in my lips to a soft J-Lo-esque nude, warm glow. The MA saw it on me after I tried it on and complimented me, thinking it was a lipstick! So YMMV depending on …Read more

Lipstick - Nuance by Salma Hayek - Lipstick in Dusty Rose

I have had the worst time with lipsticks lately. Every single lipstick I own in the high-end brands, you name it - Chanel, Guerlain, NARS, etc. -- even in their moisturizing formulas, do NOT work for me. I have a hard time with even application or even if it initially applies evenly, I am left with weird white patches after an hour or so. THIS IS THE FIRST LIPSTICK I HAVE FOUND THAT STAYS TRUE …Read more

I purchased the gel liner in "black." I love it! Just like the packaging says, it gives the look of a gel liner or liquid liner, and it truly stays put all day! Applies like a dream. I have nothing bad to say about this. I want to try "grey" as well.

I have to disagree with the negative reviews. This was a great powder for me. For reference, I am NW20 - Stila 20 Watts - Chanel B20 - normal-to-dry skin, with little need for much coverage, except to set my tinted moisturizer and even out everything. This worked perfectly for that purpose. The color stayed true all day, it is a nice consistency in that it does not fly everywhere when you put …Read more

I grabbed this on the day of my wedding reception as I had run out of the MAC Mineral powder I normally wear and the ingredients looked good. Wow. Impressive. No need to spend $30+ on a high-end mineral powder. Good natural coverage and stays true to color by the end of the day.

This wrecked my skin. After using it for about 5 days, I was left with dry, flaky patches on my mouth and chin area. It's really drying, I think, due to the presence of Sodium Laureth Sulfate. Avoid if you have dry, sensitive skin like mine.

I had the same problem as some of the previous reviewers -- this burned my skin, and made me all blotchy. The first time I used it, it was fine. Subsequent usage resulted in serious irritiation.

Polishes - OPI - Orange You From NY?

Holy grail. I just plunked down $20.00 on Ebay for this polish. I was looking for an alternative to the typical bright, blood red. I wouldn't say this had a lot of orange in it; it's more like a red coral. Very hard to describe. Maybe even a touch of brown?

I got this as part of the Hydroshield Set, which included a full-sized Hydroshield Eye Serum and a full-sized Hydroshield Face Serum, all for $60.00. This is the perfect color for me, a warm peachy/pinky/browny color which looks very natural but yet is pigmented enough to give me a nice color pay-off. True to it's name, it's extremely moisturizing and it lasts a long time. It looks …Read more

Polishes - OPI - It's All Greek To Me

I disagree with the previous reviewers who said only darker complexions , or those with a tan, can pull this off. It looks beautiful on my toes, and I'm pretty pale and on the warm side (MAC NW20). That said, I probably wouldn't wear it on my hands, as it is VERY bold. But, for a nice summer pedicure color, I think this rocks!
