Nice product. To me, this is the successor to Stila's Lip Rouge, a product I owned and loved a good decade ago. It's a thin, watery ink stain that's buildable, and it doesn't contain any lipstick or gloss in it. Applies with a soft cushion applicator. It sets quickly deep into the lip skin and lasts for many hours. This color, despite being a deep burgundy, is not patchy or uneven. Has buildable sheer coverage. This is in my top 3 along with Benefit and Peripera's lip stains. However, I find it lasts a lot longer than those two products, which come off when I eat or drink. This is very long-lasting, has a nice color, and I'm very pleased with it! Shame it seems to be discontinued so I can't stockpile it.

It's quite pretty, but beware that it stains BIG TIME. It will leave behind a bright orchid pink stain that will be impossible to get off until the next day. The actual consistency of the lipstick is good though, without patching. The stain is the major flaw, unless you actually want a staining lipstick, which some people prefer.

Underrated shade... This shade doesn't get enough attention, considering that exact dupes of it are rare! But I'm so glad I found it, since this is the only genuine "my lips but better" shade that I've found. I have cool/neutral NW15 skin. "Liar" leans very slightly peach on me but it's an amazing neutral pink-nude on me. Where many pinky nudes look too orange or too purple, this succeeds. It's THE pink-nude! I feel like it's universally flattering! As usual, the Vice formula is excellent - probably the most hydrating bullet I've found, and very long-lasting and finely milled so it's not patchy. I can't recommend this one enough!

Great product with a meh shade range. I tend to wear NW20 / the second lightest shade in foundation lines, and I had to wear the lightest one out of these, so people with fairer skin will not find a match. They look light in the bottle, but oxidize darker. The other light shades were all close to a medium skintone with a pretty harsh peach undertone. Shade #1 is neutral or slightly warm. I did really enjoy how this felt on my face, a lot. Even slathered on, it was both lightweight and full coverage. I have to layer this onto acne and redness, and even layered on it didn't get that orange tint that a lot of products get when oxidized for a couple hours. It didn't feel oily either. It's really a fantastic product and it lasts a long time while staying put. I appreciate that they are catering to dark skin tones because there are not enough options in the foundation world. However, with the ridiculous number of shades they have, you'd think they would get the light shades right rather than making a product that, regardless of shade #, oxidizes to the same drab peach color. Lol.

I have oily, hooded lids that cause eyelienr to migrate, so I've tried every eyeliner to find The One. This is it, folks. It's super creamy, blackest black, and long-wearing without migrating. Many people on the blogger circuit state that it's their favorite. It's smudgeable but it doesn't smear. I also like that it's auto-sharpen because pencils tend to break their points. Just a gem!

Awesome! The new Wet n Wild trios seem to be much better formulated. This eyeshadow is buttery and creamy - I'd compare it to the texture of Urban Decay. These colors are also UD dupes: of Sin, Virgin & Smog. As an UD fan, I love this. I generally really dislike drugstore eyeshadow because it's so dry and powdery, but this is a gem of an exception. It's also very cheap! I would highly recommend this to even luxe makeup fans. I wear this on a daily basis and it's a great neutral palette.

These are awesome for the price. They're better than NYX Round lipsticks, which retail for 3-4x as much. There's a great selection of colors including metallics, and many are dupes of high-end brand colors. I find that the longevity is good, lasting a couple hours before the need to reapply, and they aren't drying. Pick these up if you want to experiment with color. Wet n Wild lipsticks have been blowing the competition out of the water in their price range. I wasn't a fan of these lipsticks several years ago, but they seem to have been reformulated. Check 'em out!

I actually was pleasantly surprised with these. I'd heard some reviewers say they were too creamy, oily and smudgy - I don't agree. They definitely are very creamy/hydrating, but perhaps because I have dry skin, the color didn't slip off my lips and onto my teeth. I actually felt like it set pretty well after about a minute - if you have oilier skin, you can blot any excess. The color is super hydrating - as most lipsticks tend to be drying on me, I appreciated this. I didn't have issues with the packaging or any breakage of the lipstick. Another big plus for a lipstick that's only a dollar (!) - it was very pigmented and even, and it didn't settle into lines. I like the color range for the price too. I would rather spend the $3 on a Studio Moisturizing lipstick, but for the price I really enjoyed the hydration of these colors.

Wow! So many high-end brands fail at creating even, non-patchy dark lipsticks that when a budget brand does it, it's astounding. That was the case with Vamp It Up. I had never tried such a dark lip so I was apprehensive, but I'm in love. It's an exact dupe of ABH Potion, and a close dupe of MAC Cyber. It's super even and opaque, and it's so creamy that it applies smoothly and doesn't need lip balm under it (again, amazing for a dark lip color). It seems to have good longevity too. Just such a trendy color with an awesome formula. Would I buy it again? Heck yes! 🙂

For the price, it is seriously ten stars out of five. It's one of the best lipsticks I've ever tried, rivaling brands like Nars and Givenchy. Just one swipe will give you shockingly opaque & consistent pigmentation, comparable to several swipes of another brand. I have fairly dry lips, and I don't need lip balm before this lipstick as I usually do, because it is just so creamy and hydrating. Even more impressive, it doesn't settle into creases like many creamy brands. (Another note, it has a fruity scent that fades, like a milder version of Milani's Color Statement scent.) It just begs the question, why did they discontinue it? I'm usually not impressed with Maybelline or other drugstore brands, except the higher-end "HD" products, but this is amazing for a standard line. Get it online while you can, because you're gonna miss it.

As someone with cool-toned skin (NC20), I opted for this because it was advertised as a "pink nude." Unfortunately, it had more of an orangey undertone - it's a dupe of MAC Honeylove, which is a "warm beige." I just could not make this color work; it was too warm. Also, because it's a lighter color it's drier and tugs on the lips more. On the plus side, it's not patchy. I own several Modern Matte colors, and I generally love the formula and colors, but this was a disappointment. However, I would recommend the other colors, especially the darker (creamier) ones.

This is my favorite creme blush! I am extremely impressed with the formula. Unlike many cream blushes, it's almost a cream-to-powder formula. this makes it very easy to apply and blend. Many other cream blush formulas are rather oily/waxy and have an unflattering finish, but not this one. It's also highly pigmented and doesn't fade as easily as powder blushes. I have the color "Smitten" which is a lovely light pink. I'm so happy with it.

I can't complain! I have several of these and they're fantastic, often better than high-end shades. You also can't beat that price. They are smooth, creamy, non-drying, and long-wearing (several hours). They stay on almost completely with light eating and drinking. I particularly like the shade "Natural" - it's not actually a natural shade, but a berry-mauve that's very trendy right now. The shade selection is great; many dupes of popular MAC colors.

I'm a sucker for these. At $4 or less, they're a great value, and highly pigmented. Not to mention that the color selection is trendy, and tends to imitate MAC shades. The problem is that these generally have poor longevity and transfer very easily. I've also noticed that certain shades can be patchy, drying/sticky and have a chemical scent. However, other shades are smooth, creamy and even. It's hit or miss. I'd encourage people to buy these if they just want to experiment with color. I started with these lipsticks when I wanted to branch out and try more shades for a low price! Who knows - you might end up finding a few staples for your collection!

Excellent product. Good value, and a formula that stays creamy and non-drying. It's highly pigmented and buildable - apply lightly for a bright mauve that looks like Christine's swatch. Apply heavily for a very taupey mauve color that looks more like Colourpop's Lumiere or Stingraye. It looks more taupe at first, but a dark pink stain sets in that makes it brighter pink. It's a very trendy color that goes on smoothly, and I would buy this product again.

I have pretty light skin (NC20) and this hardly showed up on me. Be aware that it's a very light color, suitable for the fairest skintones. Layering it on heavily, it showed up as a light flush. It was blendable with a natural finish but had a powdery/chalky texture. This is a decent (no pun intended) color, but quite sheer.
