When this first came out, I rushed to my local Walmart to buy it. And was so let down. It went on terrible; the roll-on ball does a crap job of putting it on evenly. And it really didn't matter how well I had exfoliated my lips or how well I let them dry- it was patchy EVERY time. Just chunk it.

I had bought the pink martini shade from Sephora and loved it so much that I ordered 5 more. I have cool, pale skin and it makes my lips look very rosy pink. Very natural looking. I apply the balm stain in the morning then just moisture with Eos lip balm the rest of the day- I never lose color. I also love the cherry scent of the pink martini shade and the tubes are TOO CUTE.

a staple in my cosmetics box
I have several different tinted moisterizers that I rotate and this is one of the best! It is sheer, covers great, skin is dewy and fresh, it has SPF... When you live in the south, this is a real winner because it handles the heat well.

Low maintenance gorgeousness
I love lipsticks. I buy them when depressed and it cheers me up. I think it's that little girl inside me who equates lipstick with being a pretty lady. The thing is, I rarely wear them. They go on great but 10 minutes later I am nibbling on my lips because they feel grainy. I worry about how icky my lips may look. Lip stains never solve the issue because they usually only seem to stain the outer parts of my lips. There are exceptions but even they wear down to that after a while. So I love this stuff because it's a balm, which I wear and apply constantly. As a result, I really get the look of a lipstick, minus the feel of one. I'm fair and have received many compliments when wearing Whoppin' Watermelon. I also have Chunky Cherry but wear it less but that has more to do with me fancying pinks over reds. Both look great.

One of my favorites
I have the cherry tint and adore it. I'm fair and it is the prettiest pink hue on my lips. Makes me think of how when I was a kid I'd carefully sip kool-aid for that berry lip (minus the berry 'stache). It tastes alright, smelly yummy. I apply it constantly. The Clinique chubby stick is a good tinted balm too but not as sheer or as cheap as this!

Not worth the money
Honestly, I had high hopes for this product. My skin is already radiant so I didn't use it for that purpose. I just wanted something that left my skin softer and smoother than my daily scrub and this failed to deliver. Waste of money and I disliked the fake orange scent- stinky. It's ok as just a scrub.

Same as the original lashblast
I am aware that this is "shimmery". However, you can only tell that mine is shimmery on the brush- it does not look so on my eyelashes. Now does it make them look particularly special at all. I am giving it 8 stars because I do like the actual lashblast mascara and therefore, I like this. It just wasn't as fun as I had hoped it would be...

I Always Have It on Me
I love this- I wear lipsticks. I am and always have been intrigued by lipsticks. I love the pretty colors and the tubes. How it never fails to make you feel like a lady (remember being a kid wearing your mom's lipstick?). Wonderful. I find that lipsticks are either too drying or more like a creamy gloss than a lipstick. This feels great; sheer, gorgeous color, and neither drying nor overtly creamy/smeary. Glazed Berry is my favorite shade for my pale skin and I always have it with me. If you don't like sheer shades, best avoid.

Colors look great, but the lipstick isn't
I bought this in a bright pink (I love a hot pink- waaaay more cheerful to me than any other makeup!) and it was thin and it went everywhere on me. Ew. You'd have to reapply often with this and if you have lines around your mouth I would definitely avoid it. I'm in my early 20s and it just spread on my face- very gross.

Bring this product back Crest!!!
I do not believe that Crest makes this product anymore, which is saddening because I loved it best. It REALLY whitened my teeth- people told me I had the brightest smile they had ever seen! Sadly, I can't find it anywhere anymore so I have to make do with the expensive and less effective whitestrips. This was a pain to apply, I'll admit it. But the results were so worth it that I never once complained- had been using it since high school. If you happen to find a place still selling it, you will want a different toothbrush to brush it off in the morning- never quite comes off your usual toothbrush. I loved this stuff- inexpensive and more effective than its whitestrip counterparts.
