Obsessed. First purple lipstick. Blind buy based on reviews. When I first opened it, it was pretty scary looking. Waited a few days to try it and was put off by it. I just wasn’t use to it. I’m a nude lipstick girl so I was definitely out of my comfort zone. Waited a few more days, and tried it again. It’s love! I can’t get enough of it. Surprisingly wearable and perfect for …Read more

Nothing like the original Pleasures. This should not even be in the Pleasures family. I spritzed this on and I had to immediately scrub it off. It gave me a headache and the notes just did not work for me at all. I appreciate the original Pleasures and the EDT version.

I love this product! It's very, very, very sheer so if you want a lot of coverage, this will not be the right formula for you. However, as for no makeup/natural days - this fits the bill. Very hydrating and evens my skintone out. I did a comparison and only applied it to one side of my face, and it really glowed with this product. The side without looked dull and tired. I like the spf …Read more

L2! This is the best shade ever for my pale yellow skintone! It matches my neck and chest area too! It goes on slightly lighter at first but then blends in with my skintone like magic! Usually foundations end up looking orange of just a lot darker than my chest and neck area after I wear it for a few hours. This seems to look like it matches the rest of my body. This is the most …Read more

I liked it initially, but OXIDIZED so much. My face looked like brown and my neck and chest were so pale. I will have to return it sadly. The coverage is medium and feels great! I'm NC20 and it looked a bit dark to begin with but blended in so well. Then it got dark and kept getting darker. I did a side by side with EL Double Wear. The ELDW did not turn brown. I wanted something …Read more

Wow! Almost perfect. I should have given it a 4 but the packaging is so cute (the bow!) and has a pump! Very luminous and natural finish. Evens out skintone and feels good on my sensitive and dry skin. I have an issue with the two shade selection: light or light-medium. C'mon! Really? Women do not come in only two tones. I purchased the light-medium and it was dark (but would look …Read more

Now comes with a PUMP!!!! This is hands down the best foundation I have ever used - both HE and DS. I use the shade buff which is a nice neutral tone. It isn't as cakey as the Estee Lauder Double Wear - which I do love but it requires too much work. I always end up having to cut it with a moisturizer or another foundation that is more sheer so it doesn't look so cake-y. Goes on …Read more

A thousand times YAAAAAS! My first soft matte and so glad I gave it a try! I've been a fan of the round lipsticks (Power and Summer LOVE are some of my favs!) so this was a natural progression. So creamy and so soft! This color is a warm nude that makes my lips look huge with a good lip liner! A perfect every day color. I loved it so much I ran out and got Athens (peachy nude) and …Read more

I spritzed this on when I was at Macy's a few days ago and I loved the fragrance immediately! It's sweet yet still sophisticated. Rose and raspberries - a pretty fruity floral. It's really just a lovely scent - just very feminine and pretty. This is the forth flanker in the Modern Muse lineup, and the very best one! It is the only EDT so it is lighter, but I still feel that it …Read more

Revlon does it again! What a unique color that is so pretty and fun! Wearable purple? Yes! Nothing weird about it and nothing I would usually buy either. I wish I had tried this sooner. I own so many nudes, pinks, and reds... never purple... until now! So feminine... it's like a magical color. Bright and modern... but a comfortable shade to wear.
