Anyhows.. I got sucked into (lol) buy a couple (many couples) of things. Here are the only two products I ended up using so far. Other products, I felt too greedy since I bought on an impulse.. so I gave them away as gifts or as backups when I finally FINISH a product!
Their packaging is just impeccable. I mean, the purple box is normal.. but then you open it and it comes in this beautiful luxurious baggy.... and then you carefully open it and *surprise* see its this beautiful fancy, metal case. no joke.. my eyes start twinkling!
Edward Bess lipstick, but I find that it's more moisturizing in that it sinks into my lips a bit more. Because of this, the long lasting ability is wonderful... even after the moisture wears off, the color is still a bit stained on the lip. Now, i'm not sure what this would translate into for any lighter shades, but for this darker shade, it's great!!
I am lucky because this is a FANTASTIC product. The powder is finely milled, so it is incredibly soft of the face. I have a severe problem with over powdering - thus leading to caking. That unfortunately can happen to this product EASILY. I would suggest using the sponge they provide because it prevents me from putting on too much product since I use a light tapping motion to apply the product when using the sponge. Because I only use the powder to set my cream concealers, I am unaware of the actual wear time.. but the product wears all day on top of my concealers.
Overall, I could not be happier with my purchase. I'm so glad I got to go to the sample sale and pick up these goodies at about 50% off the original prices!
