I love the subtlety and texture of BB shadows, and these blend beautifully. I used the champagne as a wash & espresso in the crease, it looks perfect. In the pan, espresso looks too dark for crease, but it isn't. Love this!
It feels nice on, but it is actually DRYING!! My lips began flaking off worse than I have ever experienced. I am disappointed b/c I ordered three and really wanted to like it. UPDATE: it was not the balm but the lipstick I was wearing at the time (MAC Frost--booo!)that caused the flaking--I love the chickenpoop now!
Dame is very pretty on cool-toned PPPs--I find it plummier than some reviewers--a good fall color. Would definitely buy again!
I was so excited to get a peachy blush that would look good on me, but it just doesn't--it is too warm for my very cool ppp tones, but it is very pretty in the pan. UPDATE--okay, I am adding a lippie b/c it is growing on me.
Sorry to rain on the reviews, but this was orangey and unflattering on my cool-toned ppp face. I do think it looks pretty on others, though.
I was worried that this would be too warm for my cool-toned PPP face, but it's actually quite pretty and flatters my hazel eyes--brings out the gold. While it looks similar to Milani Illusion in the pan, the quality is so much better--it's actually pink vs. just gold sparkles. I like this better than any other MAC shadow I have bought--except for Goldenaire pigment.
I am NW20 & think this is a beautiful sheer cool shimmery pink that is moist and lovely--reminds me of Vincent Longo lipstain in smell and texture, but better because it is sturdier & won't break. I can see that it would not be good for warm-toned folks, though.
I hate to be the voice of dissent, but I want other cool-toned PPPs to know that this might not be the best pigment for them--at least it's not for me. The yellowy white is utterly unflattering on my Celtic pink-blue undertones.
This was a very disappointing purchase for me because I had such high expectations based on all the positive reviews here. It looks pink and gold in the pan, but all it left on my lids were unflattering big gold sparkles--what happened to the pink? I'm glad it works well for others, and I guess it's decent quality for the price, but I would give this shadow only one lippie if it weren't so inexpensive.
I love the texture of BB blushes, and normally the "scary in the pan" quality turns out fine once it is applied--as in her Pale Pink, which I love--this is a bit to bright for me (NW 20), though, and I keep making this mistake in the spring! It would be pretty on darker complexions, though.
Gothika is lovely--NW20 PPP for reference--not too dark for the pale ladies--reminds me of Stella except not at all orangey and not as smelly. I do wish it tasted and smelled better, but it looks gorgeous.
Wuss is okay, but it washes me out (NW20, dark hair); it might be better if I had a tan, which I rarely do. I can see that it would be good for those with less fair skin for that J Lo look, but it's too pale for my pallor.
Liza is a must for cool PPPs in spring! It looks too bright in tube but is fresh and lovely on--a cool blue-based bright sheer pink that is toned down by just a hint of warmth. I love it.
Pretty blush, horrid packaging--hardly better than $2.00 Rimmel blush packaging. Nice texture, good staying power--best for fair faces. Nice on my NW 20 lll/ppp complexion. I prefer BB colors, though.

I concur with the previous reviewer and would add that this is a lovely palette for spring because the blushes are so rosy and bright and pretty. I am NW20 with hazel eyes, and even the blue liner looks great. With my fair skin, the white makes a lovely wash, too. I am not sure if the shadows are dark enough for MMM and darker complexions, though. I love this!
