perfect combination of color + moisture

I bought this on a whim a while back and I absolutely love how it feels on my lips. It's very moisturizing, yet not sticky at all. The colors look very intense in the packaging, but when you apply it the color is quite sheer, which worked for me. But if you're expecting a punch of color, you might want to try something else.


I picked this up because I thought the packaging was very cute, and I have a thing for lip balms. Well, the packaging turned out to be a pain to open, especially when I have lotion on my hands. The lip balm feels nice upon application, thanks to the peppermint oil, but it's a bit sticky for my liking. It does a decent job of moisturizing I suppose, but nothing special. Overall, very meh.

too greasy!

I tried the original youth code serum, which was light and absorbed easily into my skin. I got very excited when they came out with a dark spot correcting/illuminating version, since I have a problem with dullness + dark spots, so I thought this would be perfect. Wrong!

When I first used it I immediately noticed how it felt thicker than the original serum, almost like a cream. After applying it on my face, it just kind of sat on top of my skin, not really being absorbed. Needless to say, it made by face just a greasy oily mess. My face looks shiny alright, but not the in way I was hoping :(

great design, not so great product

The packaging is absolutely brilliant! One end you have the eyeliner, which you twist to get more, and the other end, you have a smudger + sharpener! But the eyeliner itself is very average. It's very creamy and applies nicely, though it may be problematic for people with oily lids. I do like how thin the liner itself is, so you could potentially use it for the water line. However, I find that it smudges on me too easily and doesn't last very long :(

brightens + covers dark circles

Flawless coverage :D I love how easy to blend the formula is, and it doesn't crease or flake! It reminds me a bit of the Healthy Skin foundation. It takes only a little bit of product to cover each undereye circle, and it not only covers, but brightens as well. My boyfriend noticed an immediate difference when I first applied this!
