Sigh. Loved the packaging, loved the applicator, loved the color and feel... but it bleeds like a stuck pig. Lip liner required, at least for the mid-to-dark colors in the line. The longer I wore it, the more it bled, until I basically had kool-aid mouth.

Pretty color, iffy formula. Womp womp.

Almost through my bottle, and I've really enjoyed it. I can't say it's made my skin loads better, but it didn't break me out, sits well on my skin, powders blend nicely over it, and BEST OF ALL, there's a color match for my medium warm olive skin! I like that I get medium coverage, it's buildable, and it doesn't feel heavy.

And it comes with a pump …

Hahaha, hydration? Good lord, no. Applied it, then had to reapply it 20 minutes later, then it became a gross cycle that happened every time I used it. It went on and felt nice for about 2 minutes, then my lips ended up feeling drier than before. Junk product.

Cute gloss. I don't get moisture from it, but I also don't get moisture from the stick version, either. It's a pretty basic gloss for me, with more scent than I would like (but it doesn't smell all weird and plasticy like those old NYX or Wet N Wild clear glosses had back in the day). Cute packaging, nice doe foot applicator, doesn't slide off my face. For a lip balm …Read more

One of my favorite face washes. No breakouts, no sensitive reactions, doesn't over-dry my skin, gets all my makeup off. Can't say I noticed a luminous effect, but I've had dull skin for years, so I don't expect that to change in the course of one bottle. Will definitely rebuy.

It's ok. It works best with a thin layer over skin that isn't already super dry. I notice that I get flaky spots with this one if worn overnight. It feels nice under makeup, though, so I plan to use it once the weather warms up in the spring and I don't need a ton of moisture like in the winter. Probably won't rebuy it, since I feel like there are other moisturizers out there …Read more

Awful product in gorgeous packaging. It's a standing bottle with a pump, and it looks fantastic on my vanity. Unfortunately, it's terrible on the face. First, the pump squirts out enough product to cover my face, neck, chest, shoulders, and hands with one pump, which is a bit more than I really need. Second, it feels like a silicone bomb -- it's so slick it felt slimy. Third, when …Read more

Love love love this foundation. I have combo/dehydrated skin, so it's a summer product for me, but I look forward to wearing it once it warms up again. It matches me perfectly, blends great, and lasts for a solid 6 hours. When it fades, it does so evenly. No breakouts on my sensitive skin, either.

I got this because I like the idea of a good moisturizer with SPF. Ha. I wore this once and my skin reacted like it got a chemical burn - my cheeks and chin had red, raised splotches that burned so badly even washing my face didn't help. I applied some aloe to try to get it to calm down, and it finally did. The next day, I still had the red, raised splotches. They finally settled down, and …Read more
