  1. OMG! All i could say was yummy! these colours and the packaging, not to mention the perfume scent description…all are VERY appealing!! OMG! I WANTTT! because they’re a collection that means it won’t be available after it’s run out right Christine?

  2. Not a major fan of Prescriptives outside of their foundations and powders. That Calyx perfume REALLY gets on my nerves because pretty much EVERY woman of color I know wears it and it always makes me

      Tracey you sound a little bitter. Why do you have to say, “pretty much EVERY woman of color I know wears it.” Just say you don’t like it.

      • Veronica- Me, bitter? Not at all. I too am a woman of color and the (EVERY woman of color “I” know wears it) comment is representative of some of my closest friends and coworkers who are women of color who LOVE that particular perfume. If you were offended by what you read, I certainly apologize. It’s still my contention that it makes me queazy!

    • I’ll definitely have to give it a sniff soon…

    I’m such a sucker for packaging and I love the look of this line for summer. I think I’m going to have to get at least one lipstick. I was just perusing their site…how ironic. I also want to create a custom lip gloss.

  4. i dont know i think the packaging is looking sooo cheap!!

    I unloaded this at work the other night, the colors are all soo pretty with smooth pigmented payoff! The glosses almost have this green apple scent to them, lipsticks I did not notice a scent at all. But yeah the lippies, glosses, and some of the eyeshadows are limited edition. I think the packaging is cute, it’s just the same as the regular packaging now just a different color

  8. Faiza

    I swatched the lipsticks and they are pigmented and so pretty! I would definitely buy both of them.

  9. Yulia

  10. Haley

    I used to wear Calyx many years ago and still love it! Anyway, I tried the “sheer” version and I found no difference with the regular one whatsoever!

    I love the look the of the lippies! I hope you’d be able to swatch it soon Christine!
