Edited 4/18/19 - Taking some points off the packaging rating. I noticed in the past few weeks as I was doing my makeup I was ending up with large chunks of silver glitter on my face. I figured out today that it was flakes of paint from the top of the tube for this concealer. I covered it with tape so it would stop flaking off on my hands.

I bought this from Ulta in the shade Oatmeal …

I am buying a back up and I have only worn it three times. That's how good it is.

I have Reverb, the darker of the two blue shades. It's beautiful. Two thin coats, letting it dry a bit in between, and it's not going anywhere for hours. It wears pretty darn comfortably and it doesn't feel drying to me. It's such a perfect formula, IMHO.

I'd like …

Raspberry Voice 553C is a really pretty slightly warm berry pink with subtle shimmer. It's really well priced at $2.79 USD. But the pigmentation isn't great and it barely lasts at all on me worn over Jack Black lip balm. The doe foot applicator is also not great. It barely picks up any product. Would not repurchase unless reformulated. Also, no SPF.

I never buy backups. I will buy at *least* one backup of this product since it's listed as LE and possibly the best black eyeliner I've ever used.

I'm not a black eyeliner aficionado. I don't wear it every day. I'm not generally into wearing a heavy eye look, either. But this liner goes on so smoothly and close to the lash line, despite being wide. Then …

The only place I ever use highlighter is my tear duct area and I got this recently from Ulta because it was cheap enough that if it wasn't satisfying, I wouldn't be out a lot. It has worked out well and I think it's a great value!

I have the color 030 Need It. It's pretty glittery (small amount of fallout when blending, but very small) and is a nice, creamy …

I originally received this as a sample, but I repurchase after using it up.

I don't typically wear foundation, but I have been using this during the fall and winter over my sunscreen and moisturizer to help the concealer I wear go on more smoothly. I don't find it heavy or greasy, despite all the product layering I do. It nicely evens out my skin tone even though it really …

Been using year round as my daily moisturizer for about 3 years. I supplement with another moisturizer underneath in winter. Doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin or clog my pores. Can feel slightly heavy to me in summer sometimes.

This is a gorgeous color and the packaging is nice. But I can't believe how patchy this goes on. It feels very nice and smooth, but even on well moisturized, exfoliated lips, it's so uneven. For the price, I would think they could have created a better formula in terms of application and wear. Really disappointed.

I have the tinted version in Beyond Bordeaux.

As another user said, this really migrates when you put it on. I didn’t expect to have to use a mirror to apply, but if I don’t I can easily end up with color everywhere. It’s a little to “melty.”

It also has a slightly grainy texture. That isn’t pleasant in a lip balm.

This formulation needs more work.

Nearing the end of a tube of this stuff. On the plus side, it doesn't cause eye irritation for me, contain heavy fragrance, or make my eyelids feel dry. But, it doesn't do anything positive in terms of eye makeup application, color vibrancy, or longevity. Those are the reasons I wear eye primer.
I wanted to finish this and not waste the rest of the tube, but I'm feeling so …
