Kathryn V.'s (kathrynvm) Beauty Product Reviews
I want them all!
These are absolutely fabulous. I'm ordering about five more soon. I have natural, caffeinated, golden, and confident. They're very pigmented so a little goes a long way. They blend wonderfully and last all day. The darker ones can be used as liners. I have no bad things to say!
Would not repurchase.
This was okay at first, but after a few days, it was SUPER watery. I can barely use it. I was hoping to use it on my cheeks as a highlight, but it's too shimmery. I use it sometimes for my inner corner, but there are definitely other products I reach for first. It might be worth it if they have a shade you can't find anywhere else.
I pretty much have the same thing to say as everyone else! Great pigmentation, super soft and moisturizing, great color options, and good wear time! The only reason I docked 1/2 star is because I think the product can be a little misleading. They are advertised to seem like a tinted balm and have sheer caps, but in reality, they really pack a punch! (Which can be good or bad depending on what you were expecting.)
I had heard so much buzz about these that I decided to check them out. Since I've never had a pink shadow, I bought Sweet as Candy. I'm actually wearing it right now. These were pretty pigmented, and surprised me for being $3. It's a great way to branch out if you want to try new shades but don't want to have to splurge to do so.They didn't crease although the color did transfer to my upper lid a little.
I had high expectations from these because my friends has quite a few and has raved. I bought Seductive and Captivating. Seductive was more of a bright pink than I was expecting. It also isn't creamy at all. I feel like I'm going to break it trying to get it to glide on my lips. Captivating, however, IS creamy. It's a bit orange but that's pretty much how it looked on the website. Captivating arrived broken, so it's been difficult for me to use. :(
I have this in two colors, Coral and Tea Rose. As for the forumla, they are very pigmented but will make your lips look dry. I always wear a gloss over but even then you can see every line and texture in my lips. Tea Rose was mauve/purplish instead of the color I was expecting. I look like a clown with it on. So just beware of the color issue with that one.
I have 5 or 6 China Glaze colors, and they never disappoint. They have a great color selection and usually last about a week before there is noticeable chipping. A great alternative to OPI.
