I have multiple flip-for-it palettes and this was my first one. I love the colors and the whole concept of the flip thing..makes it easy to use since all the colors are there for you! I will continue to buy new flip-for-its as they come out!

An absolutely gorgeous palette. This was my first mark flip-for-it. I thought the concept of a flipping palette was really cute, and I'd heard good things about mark products, so I decided to swap for it. I'm so glad I ended up getting this palette, because I love it. I love that each palette is named after a city, too.
The colours are all fairly well pigmented. Though the shadows are a tiny bit on the sheer side, Wink Wink (the greyed purple) more than Showoff (shimmery gold). The blush, however, is ultra pigmented. A teeny tiny bit goes a long way. I expected it to be a lot less pigmented than it was when I first tried it, and ended up having to buff it down, because I looked like a clown. Once you sheer it out, though, it is absolutely gorgeous. The lip colours are beautiful too. I like mark lip products in general, and these are no different. The lip colours are nice (on the sheer side) but work with the other colours really well. The lipglosses are really amazing though.
What I love most about this palette is that it's a palette I'll actually use, that won't be forgotten about because it's a palette. Not only will I use it, I'll use all of the products in it. Based on the great quality of this palette, I'm definitely planning on expanding my flip-for-it collection.

Oh how I love this palette! At first I was a little disappointed because the colors went on lighter than I expected. I had bought the Milan palette first, and those are much darker. But now, that is why I like it so much. I can just slap it on in the mornings without paying too much attention and it looks gorgeous.
The colors are a gold shimmer & a smoky violet for the eyes, a deep rose for the cheeks, and the lip colors are pink and neutral with a gold and a pink sheer gloss. The packaging is good- real sturdy and contains a good-size mirror. The very first time I used the Milan palette, I did stick my fingers in the product, but after that one time I got used to it and it never happened again.

This is the second flip for it palette I have purchased. To be clear, I bought the glamour to go kit that came with the flip for it palette, several mini brushes, perfume samples, cleo eyeliner and backlash in black. Also, it comes in a little makeup bag. (I thought this was going to be the fall flip for it, but that's another story.)
The eyeshadows in the palette are wink wink, and showoff. Wink wink is a very pretty shimmery gold shadow, which is great for highlighting and all over wash. Showoff is a matte, muted brownish purple, which is great for smokey eyes, liner, or anything else wanted.
The blush is Runway glow is is a very subtle, natural looking, muted pink. There is no shimmer to the bush at all. This side of the palette is very natural. I like it because it is perfect for everyday wear. These shades really work well when you just want to enhance your natural beauty. There is nothing dramatic or overwhelming about the colors.
On the lips side the palette has kiss kiss, diva, cherie, and fabulous. These shades are all glosses (it is said that kiss kiss and diva are lipsticks, but they are too sheer, so I just consider them all glosses); they have a grape scent which can be pretty heavy. The color payoff of the gloss are nothing to brag about, but again it goes with the whole you-but-better look.
Diva is a light brown gloss, kiss kiss is a deep brown with a hit of red. Cherie and Fabulous are gold glosses with prominent shimmer.
Even though this is so natural, I like it because it works well when I am on the go or traveling. I know that all I need to take with me is my foundation, mascara, this palette and the New York fall FFI palette. Two thumbs up for convenience.

I got this product mainly because I was curious as to how the products *flipped* I thought it would be difficult to manuever, but it's really pretty neat!! I'm not a fan of blush (don't need it) so I would've prefered to see perhaps 4 e/s rather than 2 and 1 blush, but I'd buy it again just for the l/s & l/g!! The texture of the e/s and blush is smooth and the colors are really nice. I will use the l/s & l/g every day!! I absolutely love the scent of the lip products!! I'd strongly advise buying the mark mini brush set to go along with these palettes.

The best mark product ever!! I love everything about this palette. The lip colors are gorgeous and the moisturizing, even the taste is pleasant. The eyeshadows and blush are finely milled and have great pigmentation. I Totally worth the money! :)

I've never been a big fan of palettes... usually, the colors in a palette aren't made for my skin tone. But this palette is amazing. I love the colors (especially the lip products... I've used all but the peachy lip color, and so far I don't have any complaints). The blush is a little too darkly pigmented for me, but if I go over it with some Matte-Nificent it blends out much better.
I absolutely love the eyeshadow colors - Showoff is a great, shimmery gold and Wink Wink is a muted, matte violet (IMO). I seriously hope that these eyeshadows become inline colors, even after the FFIs are discontinued (or at least this set). I can't wait for the fall editions!

LOVE IT! I got this in the NEW YORK palette & just love it! This is the best palette for fair skin like mine! The blush is in StarGlo & is the absolutely perfect blush! Very pigmented so even this fair color you have to be careful with...shake a bit off your brush before applying, but once I put it on, it's there ALL DAY & looks very natural...just like a healthy pink glow! I love the lipsticks/glosses (the nude color is great!) & the two eye colors are really pretty & soft! A WINNER!

WOW! Love everything about this kit. Such a great idea. The lip glosses have a fruity/bubblegum scent which I can take or leave. Doesn't bother me though. Lot's of product for the $$$.

i pretty much love everything about this palette. looking at the swatches on mark's site i didn't really know how i'd feel about the purple e/s and the darker of the lip colors, but overall i am VERY impressed with this palette. the packaging is so innovative and cool, i couldn't stop playing with it. the texture of the eyeshadows is just dreamy and amazing, and the colors are really pretty. the blush is very soft in texture and a LOT comes off on the brush when you sweep it across. i used the brush from the mini brush set mark came out with late last year to apply it today and it went on a bit heavy. from now on i'll use my flirt "skunk" brush. the lip colors are amazing and the bubblegum-sweet scent does not bother me at all. i especially love the peach shade, which looks like it's kinda close to the peach lip cream mark came out with earlier this year. i highly reccomend this palette, i don't know how these colors could really look bad on anyone. i'm excited to buy the NEW YORK flip for it now and for the new line of flip for its that will probably be out this fall.

Wow. Full marks for this baby! I love every single product in this palette.
When I first opened it, I was a little skeptical about the eyeshadows. I didn't think they would go together, and wasn't sure how they would look on my pale, freckled self. Well, they are both gorgeous. "Showoff" is a highly pigmented, coppery gold with fine shimmer that gives me instant glamour (but can be reduced to a nice wash with a lot of blending). "Wink Wink" is a perfectly matte, medium violet-grey that deepens my crease and also works well as a subtle liner. They do work very well together, but when I want a more natural "no makeup" look the Wink Wink works beautifully all by itself.
The blush, "Runway Glo", is extremely pigmented. On my fair skin, a little goes a verrrry long way. But if I'm careful to just use a hint, and blend it very well, it gives me a beautiful, natural "just went for a walk in the fresh air" look that lasts all day. Great staying power.
The lip colours are also gorgeous. "Kiss Kiss" and the "Cherie" gloss work together to give me a lovely MLBB effect. "Diva" and the "Fabulous" gloss are more pink/rose, but still sheer and quite natural.
The shadows and blush are so generous I don't imagine I'll ever run out of them... but the lip colours are so nice I might consider buying a back-up of this. I can see keeping one of these palettes permanently in my travel-bag for weekend getaways.

I am a mark rep and I always love trying the new products mark puts out. This palette is no exception. I bought the flip for it color kit in Paris. I will be ordering the Milan and New York flip for it next time. I am very pale and I was afraid of these colors because they were described as "peachy". Well, I think these colors are universal. The lip colors are soft and go on sheer. Diva is a sheer berry. Kiss Kiss is a neutral sheer. The glosses are beautiful. You should take care when placing a brush in the glosses..they were very soft and I picked up too much product. (The scent of these kind of reminds me of bubblegum) The eyeshadows are wonderful. Extremely pigmented. Again, watch how much you pick up on your brush. I picked up the Showoff (shimmery taupe) and when I put it on my lid, it was tooooo much. But I muted it by blending with a fluffy brush and it transformed into a luscious wash of neutral shimmer. Wink Wink is a matte violet (in my opinion). It looked really nice on my lids and worked well with the Showoff. The blush is Runway Glo. Since I am so pale, I used this very lightly. But once I got it on, it looked like I had just been for a brisk walk in the country. Very nice. I love these color kits.....but alas...as with all great things mark puts out, I am sure they will be discontinued.

The most innovative mark product since the hook-up! :) A palette containing 2 iMark eyeshadows, 1 Good Glowing blush, 2 cream lip colors, and 2 lip glosses-- all in one portable, flip-able compact.
First glance: very well-made and sturdy. Easy to operate. But I really fell in love once I got to trying the colors. The iMarks in this collection are gorgeous. WinkWink is a matte (YAY!!) dusty mauve, and Showoff is a medium bronze with bitty-bitty shimmers that look on my lids like an antique gold coin. Both are ultra-smooth, and much more pigmented than I was expecting. I applied the first stroke really heavy-handedly, as I'm accustomed to doing with most iMarks. Not necessary with these-- just a dusting with a brush gave a stroke of full-color. Ditto with the blush-- beautifully matte, and well-pigmented. The shade looks on my medium-light skin like I've just spent an afternoon in the sunshine. Reeeeeally happy with all of these shades... but then I got to flip it over for even more fun!
The glosses, Cherie & Fabulous, look exactly the same on me (almost entirely clear, with a touch of milky iridescence), which is fine, since gloss is probably what I'll reapply most often, and I'll appreciate having a spare one. The cream lip colors are both very sheer, with sparse, tiny shimmers-- KissKiss is a soft YLBB, and Diva is a sheer berry that was unexpectedly flattering on my sort of yellowish skintone.
Moral of the Flip For It story: this thing's super-clever, and I'm really glad I picked this specific Paris collection, because the colors are natural but beautiful. At $18, it's well worth it.
