everything here is interactive: we set the defaults, you can change them. think a product has a different finish than the one shown? change it! want to track where you keep things ( location) or thoughts about the best lip brush or lip primer for this lipstick, or if you apply it directly from the tube? write yourself a personal collection note, or tell the world in a review.

we’ve placed have / want / had icons everywhere you see a product, either on a picture, in a list (like on the brand or category pages), as well as at the top of individual product pages like this one for L’Absolu Rouge Drama Matte - 510 Ardent Sand by Lancôme. add products to your makeup collection wherever you see these icons. once there, you can sort by category, have/want/have, or even build your own custom kits for further organizing.

Prefer prose? A snappy summary of reviews so far: Looking at review rankings for the moisturizing category the current rating of four suggests reviewers replies to "how moisturizing is this product?" mainly suggest hydrating. In the colour category a rating of five suggests evaluating "does this product shift, or is it true to the pan/box/tube?" usually indicate true to colour. Considering feedback for the pigmentation category the current five indicates responses to "how pigmented is this product?" usually favor opaque. Reviewing the luster category an average of one is a sign that when asked "how lustrous is this product?" generally indicate matte.


at blushgarden, we think differently about reading and writing beauty product reviews. we believe product reviews should provide you with detailed information, let the writer quickly and easily share their thoughts, and be a fun experience for all. to achieve this, we provide a ratings scale for distinct criteria, alongside traditional written comments. this format gives reviewers a way to provide an in-depth review of the same specific aspects of a product, allowing you zero in on the criteria that are most important to you.

without the need for long-form written text, everyone saves time. don’t let us discourage you from waxing poetic if you are so inclined, some people are gifted writers and should share if they want to. we just want to encourage and provide great reviews without that particular barrier to entry.

as an example, one rating criteria for lipsticks is luster. luster ranges from matte to glossy. Matte might be a desired quality for you, while glossy might be desired for someone else. there isn’t a right answer, only your opinion.

an added benefit to the scales is quickly seeing how a product might perform. you can identify that a product is rated highly for luster without reading a lot of text. easily compare and evaluate similar products based on identical criteria. apples to apples, if you will.

we would honestly love to hear your feedback, if you have an idea for a new rating criteria, let us know! post in the feedback forum, or send us an email to .

not a review but perhaps helpful - here is a description from the source: What it is: A long-wearing and comfortable matte lipstick that delivers an opaque flush of color onto the lips. What it does: Unlike traditional matte lipsticks, this innovative lip color not only provides high color payoff but keeps lips feeling moisturized and comfortable. In fact, the densely pigmented formula will leave you worry-free as color stays true throughout the day. How to use: Apply to lips directly from the bullet or use a lip brush for greater precision- 0.12 oz.
