Carmela Terrado says:

I have guava and I love it!

NancyGooGoo says:

Love, love love Be Matte blushes! Thanks for the review!

Natalie Santoro says:

Did anyone else think Project Runway when she said blood orange? lol

hiyana Y says:

Blood orange looks a-ma-zing ! I wish I could buy it !

Katie Nealey says:

Have you tried the toasted coconut shade I am trying to use it as a bronzer or contor shade also to blend out my eye shadows

Jill says:

+emilynoel83 are you thinking of doing a review on the colourpop ultra mattes? I’m so interested in your thoughts on whether or not they wear well

Melea Willett says:

Wow, these are so pretty! I really want papaya. Great review, never would have considered picking these up otherwise

Felicia Graham says:

Do you think you could review city color’s matte shadows??

Natasha S says:

I read the ingredients on the city color website and they include mineral oil; anyone have any issues with these breaking out sensitive skin?

Karina Ayala says:

Thank you Emily! These are fantastic- i received one (Fresh Melon i believe) on an ipsy bag a few months back and i freaking loved it…but you’re right gotta be careful cause these are extremely pigmented. I can almost compare these to the quality of my Illamasqua blushes. I love hidden gems like these!

Jody Stevens-Curtis says:

THANKS for another GREAT review…those blushes look BEAUTIFUL…definitely NEED to check them out…:-)

siennax says:

I bought these at my Five Below solely based on your review.  I got Pink Grapefruit, Guava and Papaya.  I love them!!!  Thanks for this video!

zoethediva says:

On beauty joint they are also cheaper! ☺️

Shrina Patel says:

I can’t find these. What stores are the sold at.

the capricious club says:

these look great! i may have to pick up papaya soon. have you tried the city color matte lipsticks emily? i’m super curious about them but they look terrifyingly drying. lol. still intriguing though! x

Doll Faced Beauty says:

I wanted to like these, but upon reading the ingredients they are loaded with the usual garbage: mineral oils, petroleum by-products, parabens, and made in China. Just a note for those with extremely sensitive skin like me these will probably not do you well to keep them on the skin for any extended period of time.

VER VER says:

you need the City Color Be MatteBronzer. Is the BEST drugstore bronzer!!!!

Tazzie1312 says:

These look really, really pretty! Blood orange looks so HEALTHY on you. Like the running around outside kind of blush.

I’m not really loving the Too Faced foundation in this video, though. It looks like it’s getting a little shiny.

Tess Schafer says:

You should totally do a hot coral category as part of your color series!

learnwithminette says:

Oh gosh, I want them all!! Ayyyyy

Karina Gomez says:

Can you do a review on the hidden gems you found or used from this cosmetics company? Thank you emily:)

gingerlovesmakeup says:

I’m loving those blushes! I picked up Guava and Blackberry and they’re so amazing!

Maritza Rodelo says:

Emily can you do a video on brat drugstore skincare I want to take better care of my skin but cannot afford the high end skincare I would love to hear your thoughts on this

Amy Johnson says:

How about the staying power? Did they keep their color through out the day or did they fade?

Christie Gutierrez says:

Please give us a tutorial with that anastasia palette eye shadow palette..FYI Im all over those blushes lol

naturallook4ever says:

Great Review as always & just love you do reviews on more affordable m/u as well as the higher end. These blushes look so pretty. I have never seen this m-u brand around my area, but checked out store locations for 5 & Below & there is one about 20 miles from me. Would love to see this brand carried in more places. Thanks for sharing this with us, enjoyed.

Jessie Reinke says:

I LOVE the melon shade from this line, I got it in an Ipsy bag a while back. Sadly I broke it trying to depot it! I lost patience with fixing it and tossed it! I NEED to buy it again.

Daisy Popcan says:

I have my eye on papaya !

CraftyBeautyBoricua says:

I have the Dragonfruit, the hot pink and I love it!!! I wish they have more in my town pharmacy!!!! I live in a small town in Puerto Rico. +Emily Eddington

TerriLee Nifty and Thrifty says:

LOVING everything I’ve purchased from City Color at Five Below thanks to your haul video. Unfortunately the choices for blushes was slim but I was told they would be restocking 🙂 🙂

TimeWithBekka says:

I got Melon in one of my beauty subscription boxes and it is one of my very favorite blushes!!

GuardianAngelWings says:

Great review (as usual) and super tips, thanks! Have to tell you that you look
SO MUCH BETTER in the lighter shade lip color!  OMG, really so much better
than those dark colors. This flatters your beautiful face so much! G-

Elizabeth Schreuder says:

Wow these look great on u, I LOVED papaya! Xo

StrongLionheart says:

Must pick up the blood orange shade if I run into it..thanks for the review 🙂

Cindy Troxler says:

it’s hard to say which looks better on you. But papaya looks more natural.

Ang R says:

love these

mrs_everhart says:

I tried these after you first talked about them and I have literally used no other blushes since! Try to find guava and fresh melon – I know you will love them both!

Dylan Ainge says:

Could you do some reviews of Makeover Essentials. They’re quite expensive, but interesting looking. Plus I wholeheartedly trust your opinions!

Casey Sharp says:

You should give their intense blush quads a try.. Such a great $$ deal, and even better pigmentation!

Yosani A says:

Are they long lasting?

Stacie Clarke says:

You without make-up…wow!!!! You’re absolutely stunning 🙂

GLORIA P says:

Beautiful colors!!  They look so beautiful on you!!

sandie cane says:

Sweeti Kai says:
