Hard to review a product I both love and hate. The color is an unassuming ‘office wear’ color that can be described as ‘my lips but better’ shade. For me it was a lipstick that made my face brighter and livelier without any effort–color is a browned rose or as Benefit describes it “cinnamon-rose” in a creme finish w/o shimmer or sparkle.

Formula is essentially a rose-water scented liquid in a deep pinky-red color that gives a natural looking flush to the cheeks. Shimmer free, it looks very ‘no-makeup’, as in ‘I just…[Read more]

Big brush applicator is densely packed and works great on long eyelashes–no clumps, no spider eyelashes here. Smooth…[Read more]
