This thing rocks for days. First, a simple flip top palette. Thank goodness, so sick of the bulky BOS packaging! Second, the only glitter in here is Sidecar- and even it isn't really bad. All of the shades are satin or matte, and very nice. The pencil is meh however. If you like UD you probably have 20 Zeros laying about. Whiskey is a little too red, made me look like I'd been crying.
I bought the dark golden brown shade, called Punk. It is lovely! Creme liner with a matching powder, easy to smudge and get the Jennifer Love Hewitt brown smokey eye look. I paid $2.59 at Ulta for this, and it also comes in a black.

No glitter No shimmer at all, matte. Picked this up for $4.99 at Ulta on the recommendation of a MUAer. Love this stuff, it is natural and NO glitter. It may be a tiny bit drying, but moisturize well and that shouldn't be too much of a problem. I have searched high and low for a bronzer with no shimmer or glitter, but Benefits Hoola costs $28! Try it, for the price you can afford to!
I love this concealer so much! Creamy, long lasting and really covers without looking caked. I decided to try this about the time Sephora discontinued the line, but never fear it is at Ulta now. I like this soooo much, I wish Cargo would consider carrying a similar formula for foundation!
I did a stupid thing and bought this based on a picture in which the model was labeled as wearing Cruising. Well, of course it looks nothing like I pictured it, very sheer and barely any color payoff. I got $25 chapstick.

The other reviews of this product were so great that I bought it. It really is that good. Sheer coverage but it is a little build-able for more. I got this in the lightest shade "fair" and it has a yellow undertone, the rest look a little pink. I am very happy, and won't be looking for any other TM
I gave this a great overall rating because it is the one thing I have used daily and love. It is however a bit expensive and HATE the packaging. It is so bulky and thick! A thin cardboard flip box would have been much better and the size/shape of the shadows makes it impractical to depot. The colors are amazing, the quality is great however.
This was useless. It is rather oily and sheer which are not things wanted in a concealer. I do agree with the other poster that the brush is cute and workable.
I like this brush for concealer but love it for creme eyeshadow. No shedding, no problems at all!
Cleansers -Boscia - MakeUp-BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil

So I purchased this as a less expensive alternative to my beloved Shu green oil. NOT. It has a definite menthol scent and burns my eyes when used quickly. It burned my face in places when I left it on too long (maybe 40 seconds to run and grab a towel). Burned! It still hurts so beware that it isn't meant to "soak" in. OUCH!
This review is for the Candle Light version of these powders. I bought it on a whim because it looked so pretty in Ulta. I love this stuff! After years of searching for the right luminosity in a lotion-just a glow, no glitter and no sparkle-I found it in a powder! I use an Elf studio powder brush (the flat one) and "finish" the entire face when I am done with all my makeup. I have an uneven skin tone that is beginning to show age. This just blurs my face a bit and lends a brighter overall appearance. I like that it isn't a loose powder which are impossible to carry with you, but it is a bit big for a makeup bag. That said you get plenty of product so it's a trade-off.

I do love this product and love that it was only $3but it wasn't life changing. It does what I want it to do; leave a nice subtle color on my face. No break-outs, allergic reactions or negativity. Try it!
Gorgeous purple. Silky, easy to blend, pigmented and shimmery. Really brings out green eyes either as the lid color or crease.
I am still on the fence after two weeks. It is too dark sometimes and so pretty in the pan. I just don't see myself really using it.
LOVE. It does require a bit of technique, I have to wipe off the brush. Long, full lashes that last all day and my contacts are fine!
