Love these. I got two of the Iris I was Rich and Caffeine Fix. Both the shimmer and matte are very pigmented, soft to the touch and blendable. The brown in Caffeine Fix reminds me of Nars Galapagos, a brown with pretty copper sparkles, make a shimmery dark smoky eye. I would recommend them for 1.99 b/c you get two colors, they are very slim compact, and for .03 products you can't beat the price for pigmented shadow with cute toned-down packaging.
Luster is a sheer gold apricot color. It reminds me of MAC Expensive Pink eyeshadow in the pan without the pink and more gold and peach/apricot color. It can used as a highlighter or over blush to give your skin a nice glow. I love it. It really plays with the light without you looking shiny or garish. To me it is the sister to Albatross with color added. I am NC50, MUFE HD 177 and Colorstay Toast mixed with Cappucino.

This color is a shimmery peachy brown. It is so flattering on my NW45 skin. I put my Mac nude l/g like Mad Cap, my favorite Bare Truth, or Sinnamon on top and it just turns into a peachy light nude with a touch of brown, pefect for everyday or for bold eye looks. This is from the Holiday lipsticks and should be made permanent for my sake.

I tried this product 4 times and by the time 3 hours in, I had to blot. It also oxidized and turned my skin orange. I am very yellow in winter so I want to try this because it wasn't too yellow but good enough. I didn't have any breakouts but I had to blot 3 hours after I applied. My coworker thought I had on orange blush it turned so bad and she said I was very shiny. I am NC50/NW45 and I tried out #75. I will be going back to my Revlon ColorStay and returning this.
I love this mineralized blush. It is a peachy gold with no glitter at all just a fine shimmer to makes you seems like you glow from within. Their is no veining or chunks of glitter in product just a smooth surface. I think that this product works for the PPP to DDD, it is very universal, which is hard to come by in most products. I use the duo fibre brush to apply and that seems to really make it glow. I wouldn't recommend a regular blush brush because it doesn't seem to pick up the same amount of color, you would be wasting product. I am NC50 and MUFE Mat+75.
This is a great shimmery orange. It was bright on hands and one chip after 1 day but I didn't have Seche Vite or Poshe yet. If I wanted a cheap orange without waiting for shipping or something, I would get this. It took only 1 coat to get the color but 2 was awesome.
