This is a great setting powder. It seems to blur imperfections a bit, and gives a lovely glow. Not cakey or heavy in the least. I could see this being too ashy for darker skin tones. I was suprised yellow toned me could wear it. It made my skin look more creamy and a tad bit more cool toned.
A sweet girly pink blush that didn't work for me. It was just too cool toned. A gorgeous blush, with the perfect amount of soft shimmer. I just wish it worked for me.
This is a dramatic, shimmery, complex, dark greyish green. Looks amazing applied wet with Turquoise Aura applied over it. Fantastic!

This is ok. Not nearly as complex as the website describes it. A basic shimmery beige. The shimmer in this isn't as good as other Pure Luxe shadow; I found it to be more chunky. Not bad, but not fantastic either.

This is the coolest eyeshadow ever! An icy cool white in the pot, and an ethereal white with a turquoise flash on. And if you apply it wet, it becomes more intense and complex. The shimmer in this is fantastic. Just the right amount. I am going to buy the fullsize; love it!
This is a great basic highlighter or allover base shade. A soft cream color with just a hint of shimmer. I don't find it similar to MAC vanilla pigment at all; MAC vanilla pigment is much more shimmery, and has a gold/pink interference. With a base underneath, this lasts all day with no creasing or fading.
My hair is very thick and frizz prone; I tried different silicone products to smooth it, but they were always too heavy and greasy. Not this! Makes my hair smooth as silk and amazingly shiny with no greasy feel. And it has the same great scent that the Brilliant Brunette shampoo and condtioner have.

I love this conditioner. Like the shampoo, it leaves my hair soft, shiny and smelling so good. It also detangles and smooths my thick, frizz prone hair. Love!
I love this shampoo. It leaves my hair soft, shiny, and smelling good. Doesn't strip my hair at all. My fiancee loves the smell of this too... a big plus. :)
You would expect a foundation that costs 50$ would be amazing huh? Well this is far from amazing. It reminds me of Palladio's powder foundation...but Palladio's has better coverage and runs about 11$. It also made me breakout and was slightly too pink. Save 39 dollers and get the Palladio instead.
Ooooh yeah. Why did it take me so long to try this? The perfect red lipstick...for 97 cents! This is a sheer neutral red that is very flattering on my fair skin. If you blot it, it leaves the loveliest stain; remindes me of the kind of color you would see on Liv Tyler. The only drawback is the strong lipstick-y smell. But for the price and color I am willing to overlook that. *EDIT* Ok, I won't be buying this again, or any N.Y.C. products. I am trying to buy animal friendly products. This is still a great product, but I just won't repurchace.
This is perfect. I love how natural and polished my face looks with this blush. So silky and blendable. Would I buy this again? Yes!
Whoa! This is the brightest blush I have ever had on. The color is a gorgeous corally pink, but it is way to bright for me to pull off. Even when I apply it with my MAC stippling brush it is still way too intense. Lasts long, like all EDM blushes.
This is a staple in my makeup collection.Nothing else keeps shine at bay like Mac blot does.Also no caking!My only complaint?The price.I'll keep buying it though.

I bought this after seeing a picture of an MUAer wearing this.This is the best cheap eyeshadow-in fact this is better then some high end shadows I've used!Wonderful silky texture and blends beautifully.The colors in this trio are the perfect light neutral shades-perfect for everyday or someone who is just starting to wear makeup.This trio just seems to make my lids luminous-not showy or bright,just plain pretty. :) I highly suggest skipping the Cover Girl or Maybelline shadows at the drugstore and buying Wet'n'Wild instead.
