This is my most favorite green by Mac. I can't live without this color. The color payoff is outstanding and looks great paired up with Juxt. Must have color if you like greens.

I could not wait for this to arrive. However I was disappointed. The pink icing is not pink at all it is more of a pale gold. The devils food is a coppery brown with copper glitter. The pink icing was not very pigmented and the brown was ok. I had high hopes, but it looks better in the pan then on. I will stick with MAC
Liquid -L'Oreal - True Match Super-Blendable Makeup SPF 17

I decided to try liquid foundation again. I use the powder version of this and love it. I am a W1 so I got that in the liquid. It was way to light. I also have large pores so it just filled them in leaving me with dots. I do like the lightness of the foundation. It dries to a powder. I will stick to the powder. Update: I decided to give this another try. I like the way this evens out my skin tone. It does fill up my large pores but if I use powder over it to set it helps to make that disappear. I have very oily skin so on hot days my face is very greasy looking. This might work better in the fall/winter months. I will have to try it again. As for now I will stick to the true match powder.
I love this trio. I wasn't so sure at first. But after playing with it I am really glad I bought it. The colors go great together. I bought a 2nd one for my daughter.
This too was a little to candy pink for me. It is not to bad if put on very lightly for just a touch of color. I do like the texture of the lipstick. Not a color I would buy again.
This was not the color I expected when I look at the swatch on the NYX website. The color is a little to orangey brown for me. I really wish they would match there swatchs better. Or at least give a description of the color. The other color I picked was right on for the color. I did like the texture of the lipstick.

I have very large pores on my cheecks and nose so I don't use liquid foundation for this reason. I love this powder. I use primer then put this on and it helps to mask the pores. I like that it doesn't fill them up. have not found anything else that works this good for the price. I can't afford to try Mac and not like it.

I currently have 3 of these. I find that they are a bit sticky for me. Some leave more color then others. I would like to try the other 2 colors. Wish they were not in a pot though.
Lip Gloss -Rimmel - Lasting Finish Kiss & Stay Lipgloss Crystal Rose 220

I really liked the color. Darker then what I was expecting and more of a night time color. I found the lip gloss to be very sticky. Even after letting the lip color dry for 5 min. it was still sticky even before putting the gloss over it. The stickyness drove me crazy and after about 10 min. I took it off. It came off easily with a baby wipe. Which I was surprised seeing as it is supposed to last for 10 hours. I have all of the colors and was greatly disappointed. I tried using a diffferent gloss that was less sticky but after a short time it too went sticky.
