I totally hated this liquid lipstick on me. It was super drying on my lips and the color made me look very ghostly and was unflattering in every single way. Huge fail.

I really love this lipstick. I bought it because it was a unique shade that I didn't already have in my collection, and because I was intrigued by the "Made for All" claim that it can work for everyone. I'm not one too look too flattering in orange-toned lipsticks (or blush, or clothes, etc.), it can actually clash with my light olive skin a bit.This shade I can make it work for me (similar to the shade "Arrowroot" from Bite Beauty) because it's not a bright orange, looks more muddy and rustic which is easier to pull off. The formula feels nice and emollient on the lips and can be used sheer or built up in color with 2-3 swipes. I like to pair this with a nude face mostly (very light blush, some brow defining and mascara). However, I could see how this could also work with some eye makeup from a palette like "Yes, Please" by Colourpop.I recommend this shade over the others in the collection because it's more unique and at this lower price point and sales happening often, it's not such a huge gamble if it doesn't work.

This shade is such a beautiful dark red and super pigmented in just one swipe and not patchy at all. I was pretty impressed my that. I took off one star because it left my lips super dry and because it never actually dried down for me (if I touched my lips with my hand it stained it a bit). However, I am willing to overlook that to re-wear this shade.

This color is truly beautiful and truly makes your eye pop with lots of shine. However, I do feel like it doesn\'t last very long without a primer on me (oilier lids) and that the color fades a bit. Also there\'s some glitter fallout underneath my eye as the day goes on. I recommend wearing it for shorter periods of time and trying it with a primer underneath.

This foundation is pretty amazing considering the low price point. I found my perfect shade in this (I'm around NC20) and the coverage it gives is pretty good. I have oily/combo skin and this dries down to a matte look which is nice. It doesn't emphasize pores in my opinion using with a primer and lasts pretty okay on my oily skin (around 6-7 hours without any touch-ups). Some negatives: it has a very strong smell (disappears after you put it on) and formula is slightly thick so it can feel a little tacky on the skin. Overall, it's pretty good considering the price. I was pretty surprised and would definitely purchase this again.
