I ordered this sort of in a spur of the moment, without thinking it through. Everyone was raving about it and it got sold out in a matter of minutes in every web store, so when I was at the right place at the right time, I purchased it. And I have to say, I have no regrets! This is the perfect palette. If I'm busy with my makeup, but still want to have something done for my eyes, I just grab this. It has everything you need for a toned down work-look or for glamorous smokey for the evening. Virgin is The Number One highlighter for brow bone and inner corner of the eye, I don't think I could do without it anymore. Colours are pigmented and don't crease, great quality so don't fret the price! I love every single shade in it and even the brush is pretty good! Not to mention the must-have primer potion. The packaging is g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s, though it gathers some hairs (I have a dog) and the letters are fading. This palette is pure love.
I don't have much to say about this lipstick; it's The Perfect Nude.
Though I have oily skin, this is the best tinted moisturizer I have tried. My shade is light. Gives more coverage for my pimples than other tinted moisturizers, but less than a foundation. Hasn't make me break out. The package is ugly, looks like a medicine bottle.
I got this mascara as a free gift when purchasing from a web store. This really worked wonders for my lashes! The result was great, but it takes more time for me to apply with this wand than a regular one, and I usually just don't have the time for it. My Sensai 38 gives pretty much the same effect for me and is quicker to use, so I grab that more often.
I was truly shocked when I first applied this on my lips, it was absolutely horrible and nothing like it seemed in pictures! It is very pigmented, peachy nude color and shows off like you've put plain paint on your lips. However, it's possible for me to make this work by applying it more lightly with a lipbrush, rather than straight from the stick. Still, wouldn't buy again.

Crumbly, reddish and waaaaay too shimmery.

I first bought this in Nice&Natural and LOVED it! The colour is very nice and... natural, the smell is delicious and it feels great and moisturizing on your lips. The packaging is very nice looking, although I don't like jar because of the hygiene problem. I hate to stick my finger in the jar, so I don't use this as often as I would like to (need to reach for my lip brush). Later I bought this also in Peaceful Pink and Romantic Rouge, which I don't like so much. The colours are very pigmented, so I find them quite hard to use as the consistency is still more of a greasy lipbalm than lipstick (I'm afraid the colour will start bleeding!).
This is my favourite brow-product. I have the lightest shades which are perfect for my fair-medium skin and dirty blonde hair. I also actually find the brush useful! Probably the first kit ever that has a brush that I can use. However, I have some quite long individual eyebrows and if I haven't groomed them for awhile, this product isn't quite enough to keep them put all day.
Lipstick -E.L.F. - Mineral Lipstick in Natural Nymph

This one really gives you the concealer-lips effect. Which I'm really not into. Gladly I found out this works better when applied with a lipbrush or dabbing with your fingers, rather than applying straight from the stick.
I really never have bags under my eyes, sometimes after a long night I get very light blue circles for which I bought this for. The concealer is excellent for me, but I don't think it would do much for someone with a more serious problem with dark circles or bags under their eyes. It's very liquid and doesn't stay put too long. I don't really need the highlighter-part at all.
The packaging is really nice for it's price. I love shimmery products, but not glittery and this seems to give just the right amount of glow. Very nice bronzer for fair skintones, now that I've been using tanning products I prefer a bit darker bronzers.
A bit pricey, but the package lasts forever. The color is very easy to wear, this is my favourite next to NARS Orgasm. I don't like my makeup smelling, but this one I can stand. The packaging is obviously cutest ever, you really don't wanna hide this in your drawer!
Eye Shadow -BeneFit Cosmetics - Silky Matte Powder Eyeshadow - Low Profile

This is my best friend for busy mornings! Like someone said in an earlier review: "my lids, but better". I use this everytime I don't have the time or desire to play with eyeshadows. I just dust Low Profile all over the lid and it matches my skintone creating the "no makeup"-look, still covering all my blue veins and imperfections in lids! Love, love, love it. Also a nice colour for blending out other eyeshadows.

This is the best liquid eyeliner I have ever used! Truly lives up to it's name and stays put all day! Removing it requires a bit of extra attention, mine flakes off kind of like Sensai 38-mascara.

Awful! Smells awful, the texture is awful, makes my skin feel awful and does next to nothing for me as a primer! I really do have a very oily skin, so it didn't start flaking off (as I've read it does with some people) but the feeling on the skin was just not good. Can't say I would recommend this to anyone.
