Brace yourselves, I am about to hate on this product. :(

I bought this and was prepared to be wowed. SO much positive feedback on this made me believe it would become my new favorite. But not only was it not living up to the expectations, it looked BAD. At first I thought I had bought the wrong color, or that I had somehow not applied it correctly. Sigh. It turned bright orange. Yes …

I ordered this and got exactly what I expected. It is a mid-dark pink, warmer in tone due to the (visible) gold shimmer. I am VERY cool toned and I think this is pretty much the brink of warm-toned I can wear. I also think my cool-tonedness makes me able to keep this from going fuschia on me, a color I find very unflattering on me. I have Arose at Dawn, Broke by Noon as well (a color supposedly …Read more

Well, I have to say, I always avoided this color because I read that it didn't have shimmer. Lately I've started to appreciate cremes, especially reds. I've been on a quest. This was the second red I bought in the search for a bright red creme. Malaga Wine was decidedly blue-toned and deep, Red Red Rhine was darker than I wanted, and this one just wasn't bright enough. That …Read more

I was really hesitant to throw this in my 8ty8 order because some people said this looked too purple on them. I did it anyway though and I'm glad - I am very pale and cool toned, and this is a wine-red color that is decidedly berry-toned as well. The shimmer in this is pretty and not over the top by any means. It does not have the finish, in my mind, of INRAW (which is lovely but almost …Read more

I used to think this was very red until I actually started buying real red polishes. Now, I see this as a bronzy, earth-toned red. I am very cool-toned and very pale; NW15. Identical, in my case, to Russian to a Party (because gold and bronze are all the same on my nails). Bordeaux before sex. Old blood red after it's dried. With glitz. How very Shakespearian.

I hate this color because it's disgusting. It looks like poop on my fingernails. I am very pale and this comes out all brown, dark as espresso, with this sick-looking plum tint to it.

So you ask, why a score of 5?

This is absolutely the best layering polish ever. It's creme so it doesn't interfere texture-wise, it's dark and adds this immediate wintery …

I bought this expecting it to be tacky for a girl with the bright white skin I have. I never liked reds up until this winter - I was always afraid to wear them on my fingertips and only bought pinky polishes. Now I've got 12 different reds, and this is my favorite one. For me, pale and cool-toned, 2 coats of this is shiny metallic dark red. Straight up red, and if anything, a little warm …Read more

I bought this almost soley based on Somnia's excellent picture. However, me (who has bright white skin) should have known that this would look different. It is VERY pretty, however, and although I wanted the color from the picture, I need an orange-er red to achieve that. This is very blue-based and it shows particularly on me because I am so fair. This is old-movie-actress polish …Read more

IT'S BACK. *jumps up and down*

I am a semi-obsessed collector of Urban Decay powders - to date I have Cake, Honey, Cocoa, and now this one, which I previously missed out on. However, during a joke Sephora run with my boyfriend on Michigan Avenue, we found this stuff - something we'd joked about ordering but never did (the girl at the register gave us the eyebrow raise...) - …

I am a self described C.O. Bigelow menthaddict. This particular one comes in a cute pinky-vermillion tube. I bought this expecting it would taste like straight-up cinnamon stick, and I expected it would sting. Rather, it tastes like ... well ... cinnamon and mint. It doesn't sting like other cinnamon-infused products do. Anyone who's ever had cinnamon eclipse - that's what this …Read more
