This is a nice Quad. Tempting is a Lustre and has a lot of fall out. Next to nothing is a nice highlight for the brow bone, Shark is very similar to bitter (it's very nice on my co worker who has hazel eyes and NC 45 skin tone), Dark Edge is similar to Espresso.

This is an okay palatte with the popluar satin taupe included. The only shade that is just okay is ST. The remaining 3 es I truely dislike.

An okay Quad. Smudged Violet has a smokey look to it, so I avoid it during the day. Shadowy Lady which is a very Deep Plum that I wear in the crease with Dark Brown on the lids, woodwinked on top of that, and I use Lightfall (a very light lavendar color) as the highlight. Deep truth is a dark blue that looks nice with MAC's Nylon. Overall this is a great value.
Shawdowy Lady is a deep blackish plum (eggplant) color. It works well in the crease with handwritten and woodwinked layered. This color is much darker than I though it would be. I wouldn't purchase this color again.
The color of this lipstick can be deceiving, because it looks very dark, but once applied it is not. It's the perfect shade of copper/red/bronze all rolled into one.
This is a great product for keeping my brushes clean throughout the week. At the end of the week, I use the baby shampoo with water solution to really clean my brushes. This keeps your eyes from developing infections.
I love MAC, but this color was just too pale on my lids. The only time I use it is with coppering, swiss choc, and rice paper. It looks very pigmented, but it's not on my skin tone NC43.
I love this eye shadow. It was one of my first eye shadow purchases. This color goes well with just about every color in your shadow collection. I love using this color on top of dark brown (handwritten) then top with woodwinked on top. It is very nice.
Updated 4-23-09****This is a nice color to wear in the inner corners of your eyes. On my NC 43/45 skin tone it is too intense to wear as a hightlight color.
This is my favorite eyeshadow. I wear this color with almost everything. It looks great with Star Violet, coppering or nylon. I am now using it with the eyeshadows from the Peacocky Collection (January 2011) This color is very pigmented and looks good on me.
This color is a bit too frosty for me. In order to use it as a highlight I have to apply it lightly with my finger. I would not re purchase it again.
This color was aweful on me. My lips are dark and once I applied this color, my lips looked like I had eaten and forgotten to wipe off my lips. It looked really gross.
I really love this color. It is very pigmented. I usually wear this layered with coppering or a gold color. It is great as a base color, but I would not wear it alone.
I got goldmine about a week ago, and I love it. I use it with yellow as a base on the whole lid and top it with goldmine. I add bronze to the crease. Very stunning look. I think I will try it with chrome yellow also.
I love this lip color. This is one of my favorites. I wear it with my chintz or icon lip color. This and oh baby are my favorites.
