This is my 3rd Maybelline Creamy Matte lipstick (I also have this in Rich Ruby- a good dupe for MAC Woo-, and Divine Wine). After trying out some other dept store lipsticks similar in color to this one that were inferior in quality, I came back to this. I thought it would be a little dark on my NC 43-45 skin tone but it works well as a fall color- I probably could not get away with it in the …Read more

I have been using this for a while. It works okay in the summer months when I don't need as much moisture- my combination skin is a little more oily during that period of time. It also is one of the few products that I have tried with sunscreen that doesn't irritate my skin or make me look like a ghost ( NC43-45 for reference).

But now that fall is here and my skin is drier …

I tried a sample of this before buying it and I am glad I did. It did not work for me.

After wearing this for several hours it was still in place, had not worn off like the NARS tinted moisturizer I often wear- so it is long-lasting. However my face also felt itchy and several bumps developed across my forehead that were not there before.

I was looking for a medium …

I have tried many BB lipsticks, they are often recommended to WOC. But I really feel they are overrated and too expensive for the quality of the formulation. I recently decided to try BB again because a friend likes Blackberry. However, I am not impressed with it. It is basically a brown lipstick with an ever so slight hint of berry in it. It is somewhat sheerer that other brands of lipsticks in …Read more

I was looking for a fall lipstick and decided to try the Bold Lipstick in Raging Raisin. I had tried another Bold Lipstick in Smoking Red and it was much too bold for me- almost Goth like. So I was hesitant to try RR. However, I could not find a previous raisin lipstick by Revlon- it may be discontinued.

I was in Target and one of the employees offered to open it and let me try it …

I received a sample of this in a B-day Sephora sampler. I have med- dark skin with caramel undertones. My go to foundation is Nars Tinted Moisturizer - Malaga Med Dark 1 , for reference.

I really didn't think this color would work for me but since it was free, I took it. The first thing that stuck out to me was the smell of this satin lipstick. It smells good enough to eat. I …

Feb/08/2018

Fortunately, I did not buy this product, opting to try a sample from Sephora for a few days. I was looking for a little more coverage. I typically use the NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in Malaga. I have a Med Dark Complexion with Carmel Undertones. In the past I have worn MAC NC 44 shades and BB Golden. The SA matched me with the Moorea which is yellow based but slightly chalky on me- …Read more

Jan/10/2018

This is often touted as a good color for women of color. I have a medium dark skin tone with caramel undertones - NC44/45. This looked okay in the store but when I got home and tried to work with it, turned out to have too much glitter and A LOT of fall out. It does not blend well either and I actually had more success using my fingers to apply than a shadow brush. It is a Frost and I have used …Read more

I found this concealer to be so so. I am an NC 43 or Nars Tinted Moisturizer- Malaga; basically medium dark with yellow undertones. The SA applied this to my under eye area after applying the Sephora Orange Corrector. She applied the #13 Caramel on one eye ad the #!14Toffee under the other. The Carmel was a little too light and the Toffee was a little too dark. I am probably somewhere in …Read more

I found this as an alternative to Viva Glam VI lipglass which was discontinued a while ago. VG VI is still the better product- I wish they would reintroduce that color again. Anyway, that was more of browner plum, Love Child is more of a coppery plum, but still pairs well with VG VI lipstick and well as other lipsticks and nice on its own.

However, I went to buy it today at the MAC …
