Really enjoy using the matte purple over the Maybelline gel liner in Eggplant - it is a dark pigmented purple. This is also a nice shadow to put over black eyeliner for a pop of colour. The gold is a nice shimmer colour but I haven't put it to good use myself (as I usually use half baked in the naked palette)

Nice eggplant gel eyeliner - nice with brown es. Also own this in black and both are nice formulation - does not smudge once it's dry.

Bought the new format chai latte based on a youtube review that I saw. The colours in this palette are nice in the pan but I feel for the price and quality - it does not hold up to the other drugstore palettes. Base: light shimmery pale beige - doesn't really show up on my skintone Lid : bronze brown shimmery colour - this was really the main colour that I bought this for. The colour is nice - however it is not as vibrant on my skin as Half Baked in the naked palette Crease : light brown colour - not too pigmented Liner: Dark Brown with shimmer - nice pigmentation I had high hopes for this palette and I know it's much loved - however it was just not pigmented for my skin tone.

Enjoyed this trio as I was looking for a grey es palette appropriate for work Dark Grey - very pigmented, nice cool grey colour Middle light grey - I don't use this too often as it doesn't show up on my asian skin Taupe - really liked this colour as well. It's a taupe, grey colour that's great for all overlid. All 3 colours are matte and quite blendable. Great option for a drugstore palette.

Price: Bought for $18 inclu shipping from ebay - slightly expensive compared to drugstore brands Colour - very dark and fine tip Usability - due to fine tip - extremely easy to use especially for beginners like myself Durability - long lasting - does not smug; I have somewhat hooded asian lids and have had issues with many eye pencils and gel liners with smudging on the lower lash line. Did not have any issues with this liquid eyeliner for smugging. Removal - really easy to remove with q-tip and warm water. Summary - impressed with lasting power and colour intensity, ease of removal. It's a little expensive so I will see how long this last to see if I would re-purchase but am very impressed with the Japanese quality in makeup.
Fav palette. You can create so many looks with is palette. A great mixture of matte and shimmery shades of neutral - brown, bronze, pink and grey. Ive had this palette for almost a year and still finding new looks.

Price: bought mine on ebayon vivi diamond club for about 16 usd. Fast shipping,received mine in about a week. Quality: its great for lengthening and gives a doll like look. Did not add as much volume as i liked. Its smear proof, waterproof and heard curls all day. The formula is dry and i had no issues with the fibers falling or smearing. Removal: i was a bit skeptical to try this given the other review about the hard removal. its harder to remove than other wp formula. The most effective and gentle way i found is to hold a cotton pad under your eye, and soak another cotton pad with baby shampoo, water and jojoba oil ( mixed in a bottle and shaken up) and hold it over your eye for 10s. This dissolves the mascara and the gunk drips to the pad under your eye. I repeat for 2 times and this gets rid of all the mascara without any rubbing and staining your skin. Summary- would definately purchase again. Its pricer than us drugstore brands but worth it for its staying power and definition it gives to my sparse asian lashes.
Thanks to mua for introducing me to this product. I am such a big fan of wnw e/s. nutty is my fav shade, good for an alone es or on the eyelids augmented with brown or dark purple in crease. I am asian with small doublelids and this is a great everyday shade and i find myself reaching for it all the time
