When I first came across the Star Secrets kit range I was thrilled at the idea of a complete set of shades that are more or less guaranteed to match each other and compliment specific hair and eye colors (AND have a celebrity name written all over them :-D). Since I have blond hair, hazel eyes and fair complexion I wasn't sure wether to choose this one or the Doutzen Kroes one, so I finally got them both, which I am really glad for:-)
Now this one includes three eye shadow shades, blush and lipstick. The eye shadow is quite shimmery and comes in light pink, beige and light mauve, not very pigmented, rather sheer but none the less gorgeous, plus it really stays on all day. So does the blush, which is a natural rosy color. The lipstick is a natural darkish pink which goes on beautifully but doesn't last long, which is ok with me because I tend not to use lipstick anyway. The set is supposed to be designed for light brunettes with brownish/hazel eyes and fair skin, however I think it would look absolutely beautiful on pretty much any fair skinned person.
The packaging is totally gorgeous and elegant. The case actually looks like a small,slim book. It closes with what seems to be some kind of magnet, so you most likely won't get anything spilling out. You can even find a little picture guide on how to use the different shades inside.
As for the price, I got this for about 17-18, but drugstore brands generally seem to be a bit more expensive where I live (Greece) than in other countries. To me it was well worth it anyway.
All in all, I really love this, use it for both day and night all the time and would definitely recommend it. The reasons I took a lippie off are the not-so-long-wearing lipstick and the fact that the kit comes with no brushes at all. Other than that to me this is almost perfect.

I don't normally buy palettes, but I love this one! It has 3 eyeshadows, a blush and a lipstick. The eyeshadows are my favourite, they are so nice and shimmery, they go on smoothly and last all day. Colours are a mauvey-pink and a gold/beige for lids and a light pink illuminator. The blush is a classic pink and the lipstick is a sort of neutral rose-pink. I've been using this palette nearly everyday, it's perfect for my ultra-fair complexion. Only gripe is that the lipstick is not very long-wearing.
