I don't think I've hated a liquid lipstick more than this. Not even 20 minutes after applying it was peeling and flaking off in spots. When I tried to reapply it got chunky and uneven on the lips. I had to completely remove it. My lips felt so dry and weird with this formula on.
So pretty! I have this in the color skinny dip. It's a nice golden champagne shimmer. I apply this alone or over any other lip products. Of course when you add on top of a liquid lipstick, it will effect how long it wears just like when you add any gloss on top, but that didn't really bother me. The effect is prettier than any shimmer gloss I have tried.
I know these have a cult following and I wanted to love it but it didn't feel like it actually moisturizer my lips. When on it felt a little greasy, and once it evaporated away, my lips felt dry again. So there was no lasting benefit for me.
Please do not use this or the traditional st Ives scrub formula. They have walnut shells as the manual exfoliant which are very rough on the skin and can cause skin trauma. There are many other alternatives on the market that are much better for your skin.
This is a great basecoat. I feel like my polish lasts longer and my nails do not discolor from the polish when I use this. I use this either with the matching topcoat or the CND weekly top coat. Both seem to work well with it.
I love all the naked palettes. This has one of my favorite lid colors-YDK. I like to add warmer tones into my crease first before I go in with this palette since it is so cool, unless I am going for a smokey eye. Definitely worth the money. I've had mine for 2 years and only a few of the shades are starting to look like I might hit pan soon.
Super moisturizing. This smells really good too! My only complaint is the packaging. I prefer masks in bottles I can either squeeze out or with a pump. I feel like I use more when I have to scoop it out and have to put some back into the jar to get the right amount, vs being able to control how much I pump out and gets exposed to the water in the shower.
Hated this cleanser! Not only was it super messy, but I couldn't stand the smell. It was like potting soil or dirt from outside. My skin did not feel cleansed after using. I felt like I needed to follow up with a second cleanser. I didn't even finish the container before tossing. Would not recommend. I had high hopes for this one with all the positive reviews. I usually love lush, but this one was a fail for me.
