This is my HG lipstick for my NC-15 skin. I have dark hair and blue eyes, and this lipstick is my perfect color for a nice, pretty, put-together look.
Amazing. Nice and dark, no clumping, makes me look like I'm wearing false eyelashes. I've purchased multiple times.
I'm NC-15...it's a nice moisturizer, but it made me look like an oompa loompa. Orange is not a good look on me. The smell is pretty gross too. I normally love everything by Origins and everything TiffanyD recommends, but this was a total miss for me.

This is my HG eye liner---I've been wearing it for 10 years...Goes on smoothly, no tugging needed, smudges easily when you want it to---It does not have the staying power that some others do, but it's still awesome

I too was surprised by the good reviews. It has nothing on the original lash blast (orange tube)...it was much wetter, and didn't give nearly the amount of volume. I'm un-impressed.
I bought this at the recommendation of a MAC MUA. I really didn't need a new mascara and I consider myself a CG LashBlast loyalist, but she told me I could return it within 30 days if I didn't like it. I figured it was worth giving a shot----I absolutely love it. It gives amazing length and curl without so much volume that it looks fake. It is perfect for day time drama, and with a couple extra coats, it is perfect for a dramatic night look too. My lash blast has officially been replaced! Sorry, wallet!
The package itself is definitely too big, IMHO. I barely have room for it on my vanity, so that's kind of a pain. The extras that came with it (the speaker, the cords, etc.) were a little overboard. It's not anything I can really see myself using. Aside from the quirks with the packaging, the contents of this kit are awesome. I'm so happy with the variety of colors. I typically wear more nude looking makeup, but even the bold colors in this kit are totally, totally wearable. The nude colors are amazing---some matte, some shimmery, all beautiful. The 24/7 eyeliner has always been a favorite of mine, but I've only used it in the little bottle. Urban Decay has changed the packaging on this, and now it comes in a tube with a longer brush. My jury is still out on this one. I'm not sure I love the applicator, but the product itself is very nice. The mascara---I've never tried any UD mascara because I'm a cover girl last blast loyalist. Overall, this is a nice one. I'd buy it outside of the kit.
I was looking for a MLBB lipstick and I think I've found it in ulta's dare to bare. I'm nw15/20 and adding dare to bare over ulta's mauve lip liner is a perfect fit for me. It gives me a nice, sheer, pinky peach. It smells a little fruity (which I love), and you can't beat the price. I think I paid $2 for it on sale and $4 for the lip liner. You can't go wrong with that.
I bought this in the purple color and when I got it home, I argued with myself about keeping it. $36 for an eyeshadow? I can get 3 MAC for that price. I ended up returning it, then putzing around the make up counter and loving it again. I ended up re-purchasing it (I realize I'm a nut.) Once I decided to keep it, I rushed home to put it on and I have to say that I'm not 100% impressed. I don't feel like it applied to my eyes the same way it did to the back of my hand. It was smooth and creamy on my hand, but a little clumpy on my eyes. Overall, for $36, I'd have to pass on purchasing this again.
