This is a decent powder foundation. There are shades for the palest among us (tip - don't get the lightest. I always wear the lightest shade except here) The consistency is nice although it does seem to wear off quickly. I love, love, love the cute compact. I don't think I would buy again though - I prefer Stila IPF and UD Surreal Skin.
These are expensive for what you get. Although they do ok at removing oil they are flimsy and tear easily - and they're nowhere near as good as any number of brands that are much cheaper.
I have 2 of these - a pink one and a gold one. I find them to be runny and although I don't mind the smell I suspect that some people would. They're also a bit overpriced for the amount you get.
I love this cleanser! It washes away makeup but doesn't make me overly dry - and I love the scent!
I am very impressed with these shadows. They're inexpensive and have a wonderful color range. My favorite is Lavaliscious, which is a lavender with tiny sea green microglitter. It's utterly unique and fabulous. I can't recommend this brand enough!
I love, love, love these! They're so cheap ($4 each!) yet they work so well! They have 2 different kinds. The first is like MAC Pigments - I have gold and polar bear (which is white that flashes blue). I also have their traditional eye dusts (similar to face stockholms) in pink opal, and also a mermaidy green one. I recommend these as an alternative to pricey Mac and FS ones.
Great color - I think this is almost a universal color. It's a shimmery medium plum that is very slightly sheer - looks different on many people! I do find the formula to be slightly drying.
This is my favorite cream to powder foundation. It has a nice cooling feeling going on and it wears very well. My only complaint is that there was not a shade light enough for me.
Overall I have a favorable impression of these. I have 2, in a plum and a pink. They're both shimmery and have a nice texture. The only problem I have with them is that they're so sheer sometimes they seem to disappear! They don't have great staying power either, but they're cheap and come in a great range of shades - worth trying!
I didn't like this very much. I got a sample packet and tried it. At first I thought it made a nice light base and then I realized that I was completely orange! I tried it again under foundation but it still didn't work. The scent also made me crazy. To be honest, I am very pale and that probably didn't help, but the catalog markets this stuff to all women and there is just no way!

I'll have to admit, I'm still not entirely sure what this stuff is supposed to do. It's a lavender colored liquid in a tall bottle with subtle shimmer. It does smell really nice - kind of like roses. It didn't work for me as a toner or a cleanser, and the instructions that came with it weren't clear - I'm giving it a 3 because I'm just not sure about it!
This is a very, very cute product - love the packaging and the cute little puff. However, it is definately not worth 25 dollars - that's just crazy! I bought it with a GC or I wouldn't have tried it. I liked it but found that I never used it so I swapped it away.
I didn't care for this product. While I love Urban Decay and own many of their shadows and lipgunks I felt this product was inferior. I didn't find the shadows to have the same quality that the ones in pots do - they were sheer and barely showed up on me! Plus the shadow color combo in this palette was weird and I couldn't wear them together. I also didn't find the texture of the lip products to be good - I bought a bruise lipgunk after trying the one in the palette and found that the colors weren't even similar.
I have 4 four pans. I never upgraded to 8 pans because I couldn't justify the cost. I haven't had trouble with their durability - I think they're miles more durable than the Stila lipstick cases (which I hate.) They do stain easily, but I don't mind. I keep all my palettes (Stila, MAC, WTF, UD, Nars, and Amphigory) out on my vanity - I stack the ones that are all the same size. That keeps them from getting dirty. Plus they're supercute! :)
Great color! I lemminged this and love it! On me it's a maroonish berry with gold shimmer - beautiful!
