I so wanted a hollywood glam look, and finally got this pallette, but the colors dont work for me. They are all beautiful but make me look washed out and jaundiced. Guess I had better keep looking for a pale eye and red lip that works for a yellow undertone. For all you cool skined ladies out there though, combine this with a black liquid eyeliner, and its like an updated audrey hepburn.
And I thought I couldn't wear pinks! This is a nice pink that will probably look good on just about anyone. Kind of a strawberry shade, and very moisturizing. Not sure how long it will last, but I prefer a moist finish to lasting power anyway since I have dry lips. Would repurchase, but might experiment with the other colors. Love Love Love the pretty silver case though.
This is a nice shimmery peach. The rose smell is nice and subtil. The packaging is pretty. I love combining it with my MAC goldmine to create a sunrise kind of look. Nice.

Hate the packaging, like the gloss. Its stickier than the coffee scented one though, which I don't like. Overall a nice pinky gloss for the price though.

Got this in a swap and it enticed me to purchase a strawberry one. Nice smell, not too sticky, love it.
I love the color, but I hate the sticky consistency. Dries my lips out.
This really does smell like freshly dug dirt. I don't think I would wear it everyday, but I would spray it when I was feeling cabin fever. Like another poster said, this smells very much like spring and camping to me.

I didnt even get a chance to see if this worked, the smell was so strong, when I put it on my bf could smell it from another part of the house and untill the next day. Its a nice powdery smell, but really really stong.
A very clean grassy smell. Not for me. I didn't smell any of the kiwi notes I thought I read about in the description.
I have smelled a few of the Demeters and was not all that impressed, but Fuzzy Navel changed my mind. Granted it did not last... like most of the demeters. I have the bath suds and the pmu spray and it really is a fizzy peachy orangey spray that lived up to the Pick Me Up label.
This didnt smell like honey to me, but it wasnt unpleasant either. Just not for me.
This smelled good, but lasted all of 5 minutes. Glad I got a sample of this in a swap.

I will probably keep trying other concealers, but I probably will repurchase this. I like the small size of the stick, but I have to use a couple colors to make it work. If they better matched the foundation I would have given it another lippie.
This is a very good foundation, and by far the best drugstore version out there. Perfect for my combo skin its the first one that kept me from looking shiny after 2 hours. Goes on really smooth, and comes in a nice color selection.
I really love my Zia ultimate eye cream, but this is great for summer, and fabulous for tightening up the bags you get from not enough sleep. This is my jet lag miricle.
