This is my first Bare Escentuals lip gloss product. I didn't know it had a peppermint scent and very slight flavor, but since it's subtle it's fine. It must have a little plumping effect, or at least it feels that way.

Doe foot applicator which has a little bend in it. Don't find it necessary, but a unique design. At least it's not a brush.

I tend to like the UD pencil liners. I especially like Stash and Perversion.

This one has a nice color, good for daytime. Problem is I kept getting it transferred to the crease. Maybe it's time for an eyelift...lol. It is quite creamy and I think it could be a bit dryer on the formula. I'll look for a more gray color next time.

This brush is large, so as you are applying, take care as to not touch the eye *ouch* as I did.

I usually wear the Carbon Black Voluminous, which is my all time fav.

The Million Lashes in the gold tube is a no-go for me. I find initially it wants to go on nicely and does separate, bu then quickly starts to clump. Maybe I got a bad tube, but I'm not willing to try …

This really didn't give me enough moisture. I do give credit for the healthier aspects of this product.

This soaks in and almost dries, leaving my face feeling not moisturized at all. If you are extremely oily, maybe you will like it. As for me, it just isn't the right formula for what I need.

Nice texture and hydration. Outset, a little like cocoa scented...not long after a strong, lingering perfume scent. Hard to wash it off. Smells like sandalwood and musk, certainly not chocolate and made my nose itch. Will go back to hemp line.

I really like Loreal Voluminous Waterproof in Carbon Black best for a d/s mascara. That said, I've had an awfully difficult time removing it, even with a good makeup remover such as Neut. Oil-Free. I feel that over time, the LV-W has cause lash loss.
So, trying this, I picked it up in the formula which is *not* waterproof, so as to avoid previous issue. It lengthens decently, but …

Scent: not obnoxious to me and I usually don't like scented products at all.
Use very little product - it's oily.
If you have fine hair - forget it!!!!
Otherwise, for my coarse hair - quite good for the $$

A pretty indigo ink, navy blue shade. This applies nicely to the upper lid. On the waterline, average to below-average. I wanted it for the waterline and the SA at Ulta thought this would be a good choice - not so much for that purpose. It will need many touch-ups when on the waterline. This is better wearing that UD's Zero, but not quite as good as Perversion on the waterline. I happen …Read more

NW20. In winter I tend a little more cool-toned and in summer, more neutral. I like the packaging, it's unique. I understand some might not, since it's not very portable and you have to take care it doesn't get wet. The color is bronzed with a touch of red, which is how my skin is when I've had some sun. I have tried/sampled a few bronzers, but found them much too yellow …Read more
