I just bought (and received) this on Amazon, snd looked up reviews after wearing it today. The color is beautiful and just what I wanted. It has that silky matte texture I like. It seems to wear fairly evenly (only one days use, but I’m prone to having some lipsticks leave that bad edge-line when middle wears off, and this doesn’t seem to do that). It doesn’t seem to leave a stain, unfortunately because I prefer lipsticks that do. I can feel the grit of the pearl but I’m ok with that. It really looks like a maybelline matte to me, not obviously pearly or metallic when I look in the mirror, For the price, this was a great buy and the color was all I hoped for from the pictures online. (I tend to like medium dark plum, raisin, brandy, etc labeled shades)

I really like this foundation. I use Vanilla Beige and Soft Beige with my nc25 ish coloring. I apply with a soft stipple brush, brushing once across the product then dab and buff into an area of my skin. It has a beautiful finish, and the stipple brush gets it into my pores and sides of my nose. It blends in quickly and easily. It gives me a pretty finish like tarte Amazonian clay. It’s also somehow easy to use for me with the brush- quicker than getting my liquid foundation onto a palette then blended into my brush, which is how I use liquid. It lasts fine for me, and stays nice enough looking even as it wears off. I have what used to be oily skin but has aged into basic-level oilyness in t-zone skin. (I need to touch up oily areas with any foundation, but my whole face no longer gets super oily). I can build it over acne spots, medium it over redness and pigmentation, and sheer it over my outer cheeks and forehead. Hope this leads to more reviews of this very simple usable drugstore foundation.

My favorite \"black\" ... to me it is the darkest black-brown. I use it with a wet brush as an eyeliner. As it wears down and blends in during the day, it reads brown smudge, not \"gray\" smudge. This is very desirable to me. Reminds me of old favorite Bare Minerals \"Retro\" liner-shadow... brown-black is much more flattering on my warm/neutral skin than cool grey-black. Wish it came in a single. I wear it with black mascara. I use it as brow powder for a bolder brow look.

Ravenswood...this has been on my radar for a while, but I thought too plain, duped, and from photos maybe a little lighter than I'd want. Well, I had a coupon 🙂 and got it. I've worn it daily since (about a week). On me, it's like a deep nude, but a very good deep nude! One of my MANY "lipstick issues" is darkness. I prefer a certain darkness level in my everyday lipsticks, regardless of color. Interestingly, this is a very similar "color" to Naked, but it is about one shade darker than Naked, and maybe a touch more brown, which is wonderful. Naked is just barely wearable for me, it is almost too light, but, I like the color. With Ravenswood, being a step darker, it is perfect. Oh, and it leaves a bit of stain!!! Love.

22S Light Sand

I have this in Light Sand and Light-Medium Neutral. I kept both because actually both colors look good on me... maybe I am between them ... these are beautiful shades for a person with light skin with yellow undertones, but more specifically "cooler yellow" or "light olive yellow" undertones... these have no peach or "warm yellow" to them. Yay! And Light-Medium neutral is to my eye more in the yellow/olive range - usually things called "neutral" pull pink/beige on me, esp. around jawline, but this "neutral" does not go pink/beige at all. If you are looking for light olive shades, really do look at these. Unfortunately, I can't seem to make the formula work for more than 2 hours without flaking and breaking up on my nose and cheeks. I have normal to combination skin. This shows flakes I didn't know I had, pores, and breaks up on my nose where it gets streaky and patchy letting my pinkish nose skin show through like on the tip (bad!). With my normal foundation brush, and another I tried, it seems to grab and not spread well for me. I get a better result over bare skin, applied with fingers (leaving off my daily vitamin C serum and sunscreen, which I really prefer to use because I can't put on a thick enough layer of this to really suffice as my sole sunscreen). But even over bare skin I am only getting a couple hours before I am unhappy with how it looks in a mirror. I continue to try to make it work, using it for shorter weekend outings rather than work, because the colors are SO very nice! I think I need to try out a special primer?? Or a different type of sunscreen?? Otherwise, I get my best result from Urban Decay Naked HD in shade 3.0, which does not break up or show flakes on me, I just wish it was a quarter-shade more olive (4.0 has the light olive I want, but is a bit too dark for me, thus the quest for foundation).

Applies great for me. My review is to note that on me, it definitely shows green - like a sheer light bright peridot - to gold, in the shift. It doesn't seem to show like that in the swatches, but it really does on me. (Nc25-ish) So much so, that if I re-use the brush or blend with the brush I used in this, I get a light green pearl sheen in the next color I use. This made the shade a bit less versatile for me although it is pretty.

I love the duochrome - it is an orangy peach on me, but then the shift is sheer hot pink, definitely two different shades. On me (NC25 ish) this is not a dark shade, and is fairly wearable. I love it on the lid, with a matte neutral in the crease, as if I use up into the crease, I feel I get an overly bright orange/pink eye look, for my comfort zone. The purpose of my review is to comment that I also use this eyeshadow as a blush/highlighter. I debated getting the Afterdark highlighter version, but decided to just use my Fireball shadow, and I am very happy with it. I just go lightly, and I enjoy the results. I also use Sin eyeshadow and X eyeshadow as highlighters on my cheeks, by the way. I have also dabbed Fireball eyeshadow over lipstick with my finger (two lipsticks that work well for me are Urban Decay Naked, and Revlon Sandalwood Beige) and love the resulting color... it's beautiful. I dab in center of bottom lip and smudge around a bit. On my skintone, doing this lip look, with a bit of Fireball as cheek highlighter, and eyelid shadow, is a super pretty look that wakes up my face and looks cheerful. I love when I can multiuse a product.

I really like this lipstick. It was a gift, and not something that would have been on my radar. However, I love the formula. It is a soft matte... to me it is like Urban Decay's new Comfort Matte lipstick. Which is the point of my review. I have been a little obsessed with my Urban Decay "Backtalk" lipstick sample from that blister pack they released with the new Vice line. I love the formula, the soft matte concept and feel, and how it wears on my lips, but, it is the slightest slightest bit too light for me. So I have waffled on buying the tube. Enter CEO... it is a perfect match, and the formula feels and looks the same on my lips, but about half a shade deeper. On my lips that is, in the tube it looks browner. I have worn side-by-side, out of the house (!) and it looks identical on both halves of my bottom lip, and a little darker on my top lip (due to how light falls). I guess it is that dark pinkish nude/mauve family. Anyway, I like it a lot, can wear it almost daily for work, and now I think I might buy the Goddess Lorac Alter Ego lipstick.

I like Amulet on my nc25 - ish skin tone. Slightly vampy and stark, but still very wearable, fine without liner, and reapplies easily as needed. Wear is good... I am very hard on lipstick for some reason, and this shade and formula (metallized) wears off safely (no lip line bleed, no ring - around - lips etc. ), and is within the same color-family as my (much much lighter) muted lips, so even worn off whatever is left blends into and enhances my pale lips. Also IF you are a fan of Wet n Wild 666 lipliner (aka "Brandywine"), you might want to check Amulet out. If you like one, you might like the other. (On me, they are almost identical... Amulet perhaps a bit lighter? But such different consistencies.)

I\'m considering it a tinted moisturizer/SPF, and in that context it\'s an A+ for me. I don\'t like tinted moisturizer usually, as there is not enough tint to make it useful and they are always too neutral or pink. Here, this is well pigmented and yellow, just what I always wished for in tinted moisturizer. It covers my redness /melasma/ scars/ unevenness just enough to blur and even out. With SPF... this is my \"foundation\" for all outdoor/casual events... sports events (watching I mean), time at the park, hike with a friend, exploring... (I wear SPF product daily, but this on top gives extra thickness of coverage and insurance!). I wear it for weekend hanging. As a secondary use of the product, I have worn it to work, when my skin is really misbehaving and bad flaky patches or something else where foundation just failing. It\'s actually ok even for that, esp with dusting of powder, but I normally prefer a sheer to medium but real foundation \"look\" at work (personal preference/type of job) Oh, I want to add, I bought and returned 3 times before finding shade!!! Worker matched me to natural 05. Which I used for a while, and thus had to keep. Then I bought 3 of the darker yellow shades before realizing buttercream 03, which I guessed would be too light, was the right one for NC25. This was not obvious to me. Also, I apply with fingers not the brush (which also works fine).

Rapture

Review posted 7 years ago

I received a deluxe sample of Rapture last week, and have worn it daily. On me, it looks a bit darker and less bright than it does in photos on site (due to my coloring), and I like that fine. I love the color. My only issue is that on me the wear time is 2 to 3 hours without eating... my "regular" lipped are 4 hours with similar use (I am obviously harder on lipstick than some). This surprised me. But, it wore off very evenly, and left hint of plummy stain, and was non-drying, so not a problem for me. Also, the shade was completely familiar to me as Mauvy Night from Revlon Super Lustrous line... I did a half-and-half yesterday (left side vs. right side of my lips) yesterday and went out running errands like that... I could not see a difference in various indoor or outdoor light, except Mauvy Night might have been darker, but too subtle for me to see.
