A really pretty, vivid teal green color. It does dry to a matte finish- but I sort of like that- it makes it even more interesting, although I think I will add a top coat because it does sorta look like my pedi is old & dull. Average wear. two coats is all I needed for opaque, streak-free color. Totally recommend

ok, Let me preface this review by telling you that I naturally have very l-o-n-g, thick eyelashes- and most mascaras (ds or HE) seem to work fairly good on me.... This was by and large the WORST mascara I have EVER come across... EVER! I intially picked this up because I was intrigued by the brush (sort of reminded me of a multi-row comb- smaller teeth than "lash stylist"). I tried this …Read more

Ok, first of all this is just NOT my color, way too dark for my skintone... that being said, this is a very pretty deep peach/coral color... however it seemed to change color after a few hours, turning into a really bright orange shade. For the record I don't have oily cheeks (that can sometimes "turn" a color)...Would definitely work better on darker skintones. This one is going …Read more

PRETTY PRETTY PRETTY :) I use this both on my cheeks and on my eyes (beautiful bare look) Unlike a lot of "highlighters" this doesn't make me look greasy or like a disco-ball. I really like this product & will def. repurchase!

LOVE this color on me when I'm tan... in the winter it just doesn't seem to work on me. I only use this with a very matte, natural eye, & matte lippie, otherwise I feel like a disco ball because this blush is SO shimmery. It is very pretty, but wow, it's pricey. I think overall it's very hyped up, so you're paying for the name for sure. It's a fairly dupable …Read more

a PERFECT gold shade! This is beautiful foiled or applied dry for a more subtle look... I cannot wait to try this on tanned skin this summer- will be fab! This should be in everyone's stash- it's so pretty!

Beautiful black shimmer! I haven't been using this as a wet liner but applying it as a shadow (over UDPP) for a smokey eye... it's gorgeous! Nice as a liner, but I prefer my fluidline over this. Will def. buy again!

I've been playing around with this for some time now... it's definitely not as richly pigmented as I hoped for. When applied wet, it turns a pretty deep purple (not great on me, but pretty...maybe better for someone with lighter eyes/hair). I've been trying to do a smokey eye with this without it looking like a bruise (not an easy task) although the other day I did wear this over …Read more

Gorgeous color! it's a great pinky-coppery color and looks great when applied wet or dry. This is definitely one of my go-to colors when I'm in a rush, it gives me a "nude with some oomph" look. Like all BE shadows, it does work best with a primer (UDPP or a paintpot are my faves). Warning though- if you don't like shimmer avoid this one. Will repurchase if/when I run out

I *WANT* to like this lippie... I really do, and I guess I DO like it, just NOT on me. It's a beautiful lavender/pale pink shade. Nice formula. VERY opaque & creamy. I could see this working for a blonde maybe, or someone with dark skin.... overall a great lipstick, just wasn't for me. I swapped this one to another lovely MUA gal-hope it works for her!
