Lip Treatments - Fresh - Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment

Feb/19/2012

Fresh Sugar was the best thing I've found for instantly soothing irritated or chapped lips; this is a step more luxurious. As the previous reviewer noted it has a cushy gel-like texture and just melts into my lips. At first I bought this might be too soft for q night balm, but my lips are perfectly soft when I wake up. Yay Fresh for trading SPF for hyaluronic spheres. New HG.

These are a dream to work with. I've been painting my nails every week for years and still struggle a bit to get nice results with OPI, Essie, and Zoya. I've ruined many a manicure with dings and sheet marks over an hour after application. But as others have mentioned, these are really watery, so they spread on the nail a lot easier without gumming up and they really do dry to the touch …Read more

This is the first lip and cheek product that keeps my lips perfectly comfortable, let alone nurtures them. But it still has plenty of pigment to blend into my cheeks without disappearing as i blend or sliding around during the day. Others have noted poor staying power but it lasts just as long as anything else on my face. I got this in petal pink, it's a punchy pink, natural and neutral …Read more

This is the only product that covers blotchiness and acne without sitting on top of my skin and accentuating pores, dryness, or turning into an oil slick. The website says it's meant for under eye only, but I use it everywhere and it's the best. No irritation, no pore clogging. It performs so well and I need so little to get amazing results that the price strikes me as utterly …Read more

Oct/05/2011

Holy holy grail, one of the few products I would hate to live without. I'm pale (second lightest neutral shade in most foundation brands) with dark hair and eyes; this is the most perfectly natural warm pink-beige lip color that not only looks flawless but is perfectly creamy and flawless. I love all the sugar shades so far, but this one is creamier and more opaque. I would say I'm in a …Read more

Good, but not a miracle; I get similar, if not slightly better results with a warm washcloth. But if you don't have a washing machine or don't want to bother with regularly washing a pile of cloths, this is a good option. And during the four or so months I used it, I did get into the habit of spending more time washing my face, which has improved my skin texture and reduced clogged …Read more

This is one of the most comfortable lipcolors I've tried. It reminds me of the Vincent Longo baby balms, cushy emollient bliss. The shades are all neon in the tube but go on transparent but punchy. I came home with Rosette, a cheerful raspberry pink. I also love Clementine, a gorgeous coral in the same vein as Mac's gentle coral TLC. I could seriously see owning all of the shades …Read more

Feb/12/2011

This is a great liner, it's really easy to do a thick, smoky line. The lasting power is up there with the best gels but this is effortlessly smoldering. I don't care for it as amshadow base though, it sets too quickly to sheer out and I just end up smearing it into dark patches, and full strength it's darker than I care to wear except once in a full moon. Pick this up if you want a …Read more

Lip Treatments - MAC Cosmetics - Tinted Lip Conditioner- Close for Comfort

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/12/2011

Just picked this up at the cosmetics company outlet, mine still has tons of these. This is my favorite tinted lip conditioner so far, I also have gentle coral and petting pink. Close to comfort is a soft toffee peach beige, reminiscent of Mac freckletone but sheerer and glossier- a perfect mlbb honey nude. The tint in the darker TLCs tends to get patchy after a while, but this one stays smooth …Read more

Gorgeous green and floral Chypre, the best I've tried of those currently in production. A review below noted that the moss in this smells synthetic and that it's as if the the knowledge of how to make a Chypre has been lost. This is true in a way; oakmoss, the foundation of all classic Chypres, has been banned due to allergic reactions. At least Estee Lauder went to the trouble of …Read more
