I really like this palette--the colors are great. I also like that I can try 6 shades (that I know MAC will continue to have) with different lighting and looks, so i know if I really want to buy them in full size. My favorites so far are VGV, VGVI, and VGVI, though VGVIV is also night. I love the color of the original but having a hard time pulling it off with my coloring.
This LE pigment is a beautiful gold that isn't too orangey or bronzey. Has a lot of nice shimmer, works well wet or dry. I like it enough that I bought a fullsize jar because it is LE.

This metal grey, with slight blue cast, is a great alternative to black. I didn't think the blue aspect would work with my brown-hazel eyes, but it looks great. The formula lasts and is easy to work with--I like it better than my BB gel liners.
I really like this warm nude from Mac. The lustreglass formula is creamy without being too sticky, and it has a really nice shine. The vanilla scent is cute without being overpowering. I would repurchase.
I love this sheer raspberry. I use it over Perplex Hydrabase or on its own. I will repurchase often. To prevent leaking, just clean the top from time to time.
I love this great neutral lip gloss, which makes me look polished. Works well with stronger eye makeup to just look done. I've tried the revlon knockoffs, and the texture isn't the same. Yes, these are very expensive for lip gloss, but since I've basically stopped buying other brands since i got these, it is okay. To prevent spilling, clean the top every so often.

Nice wearable daily purple shade that doesn't turn fuschia on me (like Chanel Copacabana). Shiny and doesn't dry my lips out at all. I also have Rum Kiss, and I can't wait to try more. Does melt down faster than other lipsticks, but then again, so do the BB lip shines and I have two of those!
I can't believe I haven't reviewed this blush already! Deep throat is a great color on me (LLL brown hair hazel eyes), has enough shimmer to make me look glowy and away without obvious shimmer particles. It's a light peach/pink on me, applies sheerly or can be built up for a more dramatic look. It lasts well and I'm always happy with it!
This is a great palette, and a good introduction to Mac eye shadows for me! A really nice range of colors that blend well and have great pigmentation. A real find for me was Satin Taupe, which is one of two non-LE shades in the palette, which is a wonderfully versatile shade. I also like Pearl of the Earth and Cinders, which combine to make a pretty purple eye which does not make me look punched. An excellent purchase.
I love this smell, which has a yummy cinnamon baked goods quality without being too sweet or plasticky. I use this as a body wash, and it does not dry my skin out. I love 3-1s. will repurchase.
Eye Shadow -Clinique - Colour Surge Duo in Sunburst

I have mixed feelings about this palette, which I got as part of a gwp. The lighter side is a great shimmery highlighter neutral shade that I love to use on its own. It looks great with Rum Spice as a liner (also in the same palette). But I can't seem to make the orange side work, which is why I will not repurchase. great texture!
A good citrusy scent (not sure how it smells like mimosa), but i've decided that I prefer more foody smells. I liked it at first, but using up the bottle will be a challenge. I love the 3-1s in general, so not a huge loss.
Lip Gloss -Clinique - Color Surge Impossibly Glossy Loveable Plum

This is a pretty plum color on me, not too dark, but plum enough to make my eyes pop a bit. I like that this is shiny without being frosty. Not a huge fan of frosty gloss.

This product is what finally made me really like lipgloss! Beautiful shine without being too sticky. This is a nice neutral on me with a slight red tinge.

I bought this in Perfect Plum and Rum Kiss, and I already want to get more. The price is great for these lovely l/s. They have a nice texture, and good staying power, as well as a range of sheer to more heavy coverage. I like the new shape of the tube. The colors aren't super unique, but very pretty, and they are a great product with a good value. haven't quiete noticed the bias towards orange shades mentioned by others. maybe it is just the ones I have tried?
