This is one of my favorites in the ammo palette and I would definitely buy it on it's own if i ever ran out. I have used it quite a few times though from my palette and haven't even made a dent in it. This color is hard to explain, it's a plumish color with some burgundy undertones and shimmer. There is some fallout which is the one thing I don't like, but it's not like other UD shadows and it's easy to control it. Looks great in the crease with light purples on the lid. I also like to line my lower lashes with this color. I have yet to try it with a gold on the lid but I think that would be very pretty too. Very unique color and a must have for green eyes because it really makes them pop!
This is a great product. I think the price of this and other BeneFit products is outrageous, but they do have great products that are worth it I think. I have being using this for about 3 weeks now (since I bought it) as a brow highlight and also on my inner tear duct and I haven't had to sharpen it once. It looks like I probably won't need to sharpen it for some time becaue it is so thick. I thought the pencil was very small or short for the price, but this will last for some time. It's unlike any other pencil I have used, it's a nice light pinkish color that can be blended to give such a natural glow that really brightens up the eye or any area of the face you put it.
This is the perfect pink blush. Finally a pink blush that actually looks pink on me. I have fair skin, but my cheeks are always slightly red and even with foundation, it's hard to get blushes to show up in their true color, especially pinks. This looks super bright in the pan, but it shows up quite sheer after one layer since it is a sheertone. It is such a pretty pink with just a slight shimmer. I have tried many pinks and this is by far my favorite. I use about two layers and it's perfect. I have been tanned since I got it, but i think it would still work year round with my very fair skin.

I actually really like this product. My mom accidentally bought it for me on a trip to vegas because I gave her a list of things to get form Sephora since there isn't one where i live. I wanted the regular one because I'm almost out of mine but got the XL sin primer potion instead. I'm usually in a hurry in the morning so i love this for just an all over lid color, and it stays all day. I think it works well as a primer, i haven't ever noticed any creasing or fading when using it under eyeshadows. Using a very light layer shouldn't distort the color of your shadow in my opinion. It may not be AS good as the original UDPP for making shadows last all day, but i think it compares pretty well and is great for a quick all over the lid look or even a little under the eyes. Looks great with sin eyeshadow all over the lid! Used every day almost since January and no sign of it running out.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

This product is hands down one of the most important in my makeup routine. Eyeshadows lasts all day, even longer. No creasing, intesifies eyeshadow color, it's just perfect. I can't believe I went all this time going without one, wondering why my eyeshadow wouldn't show up or would crease and fade. This solved all those problems. I can't stress the importance of a primer enough! I haven't tried others, but I don't really plan on it because I will continue to buy this again and again. Also lasts forever, have used everyday for months and still have lots left, as well as many mini sized ones from a variety of palettes I've bought. Only thing is, packaging isn't the easiest to get the product out once it's getting down to the last bit. It is cute though!
This is a great red that isn't too bright or crazy. Goes on very smoothly, i like the creemsheen formula. I don't think I would wear this during the day though. I only wore this once after I bought it, I lost it the first night out I wore it, but i did like it. I will be purchasing a new one eventually because I want to work with it some more. I am still on the hunt for the perfect red lipstick though, I felt this one still wasn't the greatest with my skin tone for some reason.
This is a really pretty light pink gloss. Perfect over angel by MAC as everyone has heard before. It is also nice alone as well, and is one of the few light pinks I own that show up on my pigmented lips. I have a mini version from the christmas gift set, it has lasted quite some time, but if i run out I will buy a full size even though it is expensive. I love this gloss, perfect consistency, not sticky, pigmented, and lasts long.
This is slightly lighter than baked, which I also have in the get baked palette. I think I like it better just because it's a bit more subtle for all over the lid. Great for summer when my skin is a bit tanner.
This is a great gold eyeshadow, very highly pigmented. I have it in the get baked palette. I can barely tell a difference between this and half baked, so I wouldn't buy both full sizes separately. I think this one is a bit darker than half baked. I wear golds and bronzes lots in the summer and I really like this and half baked on the lid with twice baked in the crease.
Got this on ebay for fairly cheap and I'm so glad I did. This is totally worth it, beautiful bright colors as well as neautrals. Mini primer potion and zero 24/7 eyeliner are great as well.The only color I don't use is snatch, too glittery and lots of fallout. It would be a nice color though without the glitter.
Love, love, love this color. Beautiful shimmering champagne, no glitter, just shimmer. The shimmer is not over the top at all, use it all the time for a day look. Have this in my ammo palette and I will definitely be buying the full size when I run out. I have been wearing this almost everyday for a few months because I am short on time in the mornings, i put it over the sin primer potion and it just brightens my whole face up and stays all day. Perfect paired with some eyeliner and mascara for an everyday school or work look.
This is a beautiful shimmering medium brown color. I use it often in the crease, looks great paired with sin. I have it in the ammo palette as well as the show pony, but if I ever run out, I would buy the full size. Even though the palettes have small shadows in them, they last forever, I have been using smog very often and still have lots of it left.
These are definitely in my top 3 favorite lip glasses, I have bought many different colors and they are all great. This one is nude with sparkles, the sparkles are not too outrageous though, it looks great on. I like to wear it alone or over nude lip gloss like (mac myth, among others) for a going out look. It look even better when I'm tanned, so i would highly recommend for summer. Can be paired with almost any eye look.
I found this for 5.99 at winners so I had to buy it, even though I thought the colour was a little out of my range. Turns out, it's great for the creased when paired with golds our browns. I like to put it over a darker brown or just lightly put it as eyeliner on my bottom lashline. It really makes green eyes pop. Of course it is highly pigmented like all UD shadows, so i suggest a light hand to pull this off. Also have used as blush very lightly and it gives a nice flush!

This is great! I just bought it today and I already can say I love it after using it. I followed what was printed in the eyeshadows for placement and it looked great. I have another one of these that isn't so great, but the shadows in this quad are very pigmented and look very nice for a neutral or more dramatic look.
