An impulse purchase, in the shade "Eclair." Best impulse purchase ever. The most wearable cool pink lip ever, at least if you're warm-toned like me. I have very pigmented lips, and on me, 2 coats gives just the right deposit of color - mostly opaque, but just sheer enough to work with my coloring. And, as the name suggests, it's not drying. I have the urge to go haul all the …Read more

I initially tried using this as a co-wash, with consistently disastrous (greasy, sticky) results. It seems I can stand there rinsing my hair for 5 minutes and still not get enough of it out. However, when used as an actual conditioner, it's really good - actually better than the moisturizing conditioners I've used at smoothing my hair. I'm not even going to pretend to understand …Read more

On me this is a slightly dusty coral, more red than orange. It's a creme. Meh. Aside from the fact that it needed to be thinned upon opening it for the first time, it just isn't as bright, vivid, or saturated as it looked in the store. It does look good on me (pale, warm-toned) in a very retro/classic kind of way, but it's pretty ho-hum.

A deep rose with a ton of gorgeous deep golden shimmer. It really does last a significant time period - I've had it go 4-5 hours before taking it off. Unfortunately, unless my lips are already in perfect condition, this really makes them visibly flaky and dry under the color. I also don't like the scent, which is heavy perfume vanilla (think BBW Vanilla Noir) with menthol.

This is an icy, pale pink creme. It's sheer, but I'm able to get sufficient opacity with 3 thick coats (and that's coming from someone who loathes VNL). This is my favorite pedi shade, because it makes my feet look clean and polished even if I did it at home rather than at the salon. Although I do bring it to the salon, no shame in that!

I got this in Almond Butter, which is your run-of-the-mill nude-pink. There's really nothing bad to say about the color (again, nude-pink, universally flattering) or the texture (it's a pretty good balm, less drying than a lot of tinted lip balms). The overwhelming waxy scent is too much for me, though - there are so many very similar products that smell better. I appreciate that it …Read more
