I fell in love with these shadows without even trying them on! the colors were beautiful and i vehemently desired to have each and every one of them. I bought CHAINS, a shimmery golden olive, and applied wet, it was absolutely gorgeous on my dark skin. i dont know whether it was lack of shadow base or not, but the color turned to a semi-matte steel gray by midday. i want to believe that it was just this color that did this as well as the lack of primer, but i cannot be sure until i try some more UD shadows. Otherwise recommended to shimmer-and-color-craving gals like me!!!
i bought this on a recommendation by a sephora sales rep. and when he tried it on me in the store it was good, but darker than i had wanted. i bought it a few days later and tried it at home; the brush was stiff and the powder/wax clumped until i brushed and brushed over it with water. When used with water and completely dissolved, this is a good eyebrow color that stays well throughout the day; nevertheless, i am returning it for the absurd price ($22!?!)and am thinking about buying a shadow that matches my natural color.
Good lipstick for a good price. Creamy texture, rich color. i just bought the wrong color, but otherwise sephora's lipsticks will definately be one of the top lippies on my list!

Beautiful packaging, good creamy lipstick, rich color, just not as long wearing as i wanted it to be (didnt last through my meals, but the color kinda faded in the center of my mouth. But overall, a good lipstick. would consider buying from Club Monaco again. UPDATE: I never wear this color anymore. I forgot to add that it smells like that awful $1 lipsticks that you see at dollar stores. It's not creamy anymore (but rather thick and uncomfortable) and it sits on top of my lips. Yuck!
very disappointed in such an overall-loved product. i dont see what others are raving about; these shadows are standard and too sheer to actually see. i do not recommend guava to dark skinned women since its too light and sheer. mambo is too bright and poise is hardly visible on darker girls like myself. i think i can find better shadows for a lower price and much better packaging.

I bought this in parme 13. this was probably the worst liner i have ever seen or tried to wear. the first time i tried to put it on, it started burning my eye lids, not to mention the watery consistency of the liquid. Plus, the color didnt show up very well, and you couldnt even tell i was wearing it. Despite this, if you choose to try it out, best of luck; i think i'll stick to my $4 maybelline liner.
