This is easy to apply, with a simple brush and zero clump factor, but it feels a little bit odd on the lashes in that it never seems completely dry. The look you get is very subtle, which is really not to my tastes. This is for people who are interested in using all-natural products and want a no-makeup look and nobody else.

I really loved this for a while when it was one of my only really glittery makeup items, but now having more it's definitely inferior to the others. The texture is kind of oily, although it's not as bad as some other WnW glosses, and the glitter is chunky and tends to bunch up in certain areas or come off of the lips entirely.

I got this in Mauve Delight because it was cheap and I wanted to try different lip gloss formulas. Turns out the fact that it was cheap was a blessing, because I quite dislike it. It feels too sticky and heavy on the lips, the color fades quickly, and there's a weird unpleasant tutti-fruity scent.

Is this a colored pencil? It sure feels like it. This product is not very pigmented, requires more pressure than I would like to have to use so close to my eye, and starts to fade in a few minutes.

Honestly, most moisturizing products seem to work about the same for me. This one was effective but didn't stand out from anything else I've used on my cuticles in terms of function. I did like the scent, though.

I was very excited to try this out when I picked up Diva Deluxe. These glosses promise lovely colors that "[capture] all the light of a prism" -- which is to say that they are duochromes according to the display. Diva Deluxe is supposed to be a bright pink with a gold duochrome.

Unfortunately, these glosses do not deliver. There was very little gold shine in the tube and …

Good product, not the best color. These tinted balms are last a decent amount of time, and have a nice minty taste, although the small circumference makes them more difficult to apply than they should be. This particular shade, however, is pure shimmer and frost in a pink that's so pale it's almost white. I'm sure there are people out there for whom that sounds perfect, but I …Read more

I truly wanted to love this, since I usually like Wet n Wild's inexpensive lip products and the color is lovely! Unfortunately, the formula is awful: it smells weird, as if they were trying for some kind of sweet vanilla but failed miserably, the texture makes it feel like you're putting olive oil and pigment on your lips, and the color begins to fade by about fifteen minutes of wear …Read more

This is my base coat at the moment, as it was the cheapest thing I could find that contains added vitamins. As a base coat, it's decent: keep the mani on and stains off, but it creates a surface that's just a bit less smooth than my natural nail. As a lengthener, it doesn't seem to do anything.

Like a lot of Jordana products, usable for a tight budget but not impressive.
