I have this in Black Flash and Bronze Flash. I love the consistency and the shimmer in the colors. It's my fave pencil liner right now.
I don't use concealer much, but when I do need it, I use this one. It's a bit thick for my taste and sometimes I have trouble blending it. But overall, it works.
Difficult to apply. Although after I do manage to get some on, the lash color I apply afterwards does seem to be more intense and my lashes are longer. However, this weighs down my curl (I curl my lashes before I apply this) ..... =( so I get longer lashes, but not curly lashes.
Love the minty smell and the tingling feeling on my lips right after I apply it. Colors are light-- not much staying power, but at least it's still shiny and I love the fact that its NOT sticky!

Impulse Buy. The saleslady powdered some into my hair to highlight it. Neat effect. She also taught me how to mix some into my lotion so when I apply it on my body, it's like a shimmer lotion and/or a light bronzer.

Update: 9/17/2009 10:12:00 PM I just had to write an update for this product! I've had it for over a decade and... and I still use it. I've retired it for a few years, even try to pawn it onto a few friends, but it always makes its way back to me, since everyone's into using pencil now. But for some reason a couple years back (yes, that long ago!), I just picked it up and decided to give it another go. This is the the 1st generation packaging, which is sort of falling apart, and I've since lost the orginal brushes. I apply it with a MAC angled brush and it gives me a rather more natural brow shape vs. pencils. So I've been using it... for over 10 years, still the same one!! Gotta say, it's worth it.. the color is great, very natural. I've raised the overall rating to a 5, and packaging down to 2 (really fragile!). Good buy. ------------------------------------------------------------ Orginal Review: 5/22/2004 11:29:00 PM I got this in Sable 03. Great natural shade and it lasts forever! I have since moved on to using a brow pencil, since I found one that is very natural and easy to use, but if I ever want to use brow powder again, this would be it! Also, it works great as a brown eyeliner.

I got this in SOPHISTICATES. Came with 2 brush applicators, one is a thin brush I can use to apply the eyeliner wet and the other is a sponge tip applicator. The 3 shades are deep purple, shimmery pink, and dark brown. I use the deep purple as an eyeliner-- apply with brush, wet. I used to use the pink as a highlighter-- but I dropped this compact twice and both the pink and brown cracked (I dumped it all out)! So now I only have the purple color left. Oh well.
I have this in 02. There is 3 shades in it- a gold highlighter with silver shimmer in it, a blue-green creme eyeshadow, and a deeper black grey creme eyeshadow. Whenever I don't have enough time to apply powder eyeshadow, I just apply these on my eyelids with my finger for instant color. It's so easy and don't need precision application.
Have it in black. A great liquid liner, easy to use and cost only a few bucks!

Very thick and creamy. I find it too greasy/oily to use during the day, instead I use it at night right before going to bed. Wake up with soft hands.

I bought this compact initially because I really liked the packaging and it also matches my Dior Girly Handbag perfectly-- how cute is that? However, I was lucky to find that the colors work well on me. I use the bronzer on my cheeks, and brush it across my forehead, chin, and nose. I love the highlighter and use it on my eyes. The lipgloss i is a great neutral color. Makes me look like I've been sun-kissed. I never thought I can use bronzers, since I am pretty fair skinned with pink undertones, but it really makes me look healthy and vibrant. ^__^ I don't use the brushes, but nevertheless, they are CUTE.
Well, like the previous reviewer I bought it because the packaging was SWEET!! And of course it is LE. I love the look of it, very nicely made and good gem details. Oh... it's pretty heavy too. Well, I bought both the Happy Few and Show-Off. I kept Show-Off for myself and gave Happy Few to a friend as a present. I thought the lighter pink in Happy Few is probably transparent. Anyhow, all I can say is, the color is not SHEER like the salesgirl claimed and it's not a lipgloss! It is a matte lipstick/lipstain. Both shades are a bit bright on me if used alone, but I find that if I put on a thin layer and top it off with clear lipgloss-- it looks pretty decent! The lipbrush is nice.
I must say I am disappointed! It does give me a nice coat of deep black, but it doesn't do anything else for me. No lengthening or thickening of the lashes. So it just looks like my same ole' lashes, but a lil darker. =/ I did like the 'rubber' tube though... oh well...
Doesn't pinch!! I think that is the most important thing when using an eye lash curler. Who needs the pain?! So I'll stick with Shu. The only thing that bothers me is sometimes I can't reach the lashes on the other corner of my eye to curl them correctly, so they end up bending in weird directions!
I like this mascara very much. It's does not clump and goes on my lashes very smoothly and darkens them. It's very natural. Very nice day time mascara.
