The color is so pale it doesn't really do much, and texture was too talc-y or powdery. Not a great option for those no longer in the 'flush' of youth. I also dislike these little cardboard boxes. They aren't actually all that practical. :(

I'm nearly ready to call this my hg nude lippie. Most nude lippies make me look dead. This has enough of a peachy/warm tone to not do that, plus its extra creamy (cremesheen) which I quite like. I'm a huge fan of the formula. Just got this color but so far I love it, I've topped with wildly lush (a warm nude gloss) to great effect. I'm in love! Not since I discovered 'shy …Read more

I'm really quite pleased with this color, Tipsy was my fave and go-to before getting this, but this is even peachier and slighly shimmery as opposed to tipsy which has no shimmer. I like both options, but do feel this one is more pigmented as well. I really like to use tarte stains as a base and buff in a tiny amount of powder blush on top for better color and staying power. Thus I've …Read more

A great base for a smokey eye! I just got it and wanted to try it out right away, so I used this and mac carbon to create a very dark and dramatic eye. I had agreed to a rather absurd event to raise money for a friend's nonprofit; a girl-on-girl lube-wrestling event. I got my butt whooped, faceplanted in a tub full of lube, and was then hosed down. My eyeshadow smudged a wee bit beneath my …Read more

I got this hoping to use it as a buffer for blushes and powders, but its far too large for that. However, it is absolutely perfect for buffing on liquid foundation, as a few other reviewers have stated. No shedding, super dense, good quality, and no icky animal hair! yay!

I would call this a neutral brownish color, or a tan-ish mauve. Its semi-sheer and creamy and a good shade if brown and tan tones work for you but its a pretty subtle color, not super dramatic.

This is a shimmery, semi-sheer warm gold-y pink color. More of a mauve or rose base than pink really. It has gold glimmers, a lovely color and as always with Smashbox its shimmery but not gritty at all. :)

a cocoa brown, semi-sheer gloss with gold glimmers. Its a shimmery gloss that will look lovely if you typically look good in browns (I do, probably because warm tones work well for me) a lovely shade.
