HORRIBLE-WARNING!!! If you have sensitive skin stay away...I used it felt great for 2 days then took me 3weeks to get it healed from the breakouts and rash, yes rash!! I have tried it all now except LaMer.. I stick with my Kiehls.

This stuff is great. I have ceeks that get super dry and flaky...and I have tried everything from Dior to Clinique and this is by far the best I have used. Cheap enough, great on sensitive skin... perfection for me, my HG. :) It fixed my skin after a disaster with dior products.
I love these... Now you may find a few people who say too garish, too sparkly.. maybe they are too old! I will be 30 soon, and i wear UD's everyday. They out last MAC by about 5hrs without an eyeshadow base.. now with a base on your eyes the UD's have lasted over 12hrs, no touch ups and i have very oily lids. I can get 6hrs wear out of ud before i need a touch up with no base, NO E/S CAN DO THAT, not even chanel or dior!! My fave is Spare Change, a deep pewtery color, and i wear it during the day, a great day smokey eye look.. and chopper is a beautiful golden light brown with sparkles and smog a yummie dark brown with a greenish shimmer.. Cannot wait to buy more!!! MAC can be for all those obsessed, UD is my HG!!Plus the colors are just as varied as MACs and what 3 dollars more? Skip MAC, go for Urban Decay!!
I LOVE this, love it love it love it! I use is for my everyday liner,(so smoothe i can do it without holding my lid taut!no other I can do this with) and i have tried all, evenwaterproof, high ends and this beats them by the mile. Its not messy like the kohl Smolder nor as harsh(thats my one i got with the taupe). And I know you should NEVER-but i fell asleep after a harrowing ordeal with my fathers heart,but he is doing good :), and thru crying, no sleep 24hrs +++ then crashing all day, it was still as great as when i put it on only a tad lighter. A MUST buy! and it doesnt "print" half moons of liner on your upper lids like so many!! I keep exyra just in case they try and discont!!! I love it, did i mention that? :)
First, before you read on to other comments remember this- if you dont like matte l/s youll hate this product. I have it in bitten, a dark red that slighly fades on some people. You MUST exfopiliate lips prior to use and use lipbalm only AFTER or it wont stain. My problem with peoples xcomments below is they expected a moisturizing stain-what? there is no cuch thing. A stain is to provide a color to lips with no gloss or shine, therefore matte. It will be drying, its matte,you can feel it on, its matte...bbut for fadages its, awesome. I dab on a no shine balm after i apply and let stain dry first. BUT remember you must have smooth lips or it collects in the flaking ness! Very good product, but remember stain= matte color, drying. I honestly dont know what people expected!!
Beautiful color, like a chlorine green with shimmer. A gorgeous green that is more on the grass color side than blue green like aquadisiac. I will definitely keep buying this color!
GORGEOUS! beautiful shimmery bright peach with hints of tangerine. Looks gorgeous with Gleam also!!
These have no staying power in comparison to MAC, Dior and Chanel-my preferred brands. This was a waste of even just a few bux. They lasted about 2hrs max and creased more than mac paints do!! Maybe great for low end, but Im a high end girl, get what you pay for.. I dont want to have to re-apply, this i have no choice. I tried to like though...
Pretty desription on site, pretty in pot, no show on lids. wet or dry this was a waste. took back... this was neither pewtered nor bronze, and site description is "pewtered bronze". where was the shimmer?
I hate shadows I have to use wet or layer 20 times to get color or a full coverage color(this went on blotchy dry). This was a mess from start to finish. Ugh! why do I never learn?
Im a LLL, cant do this, too chalky of a pink. no shimmer or glitter on me, looked like matte pink chalk. And I had to layer and layer just to get that. This is like vex in how sheer and blah it is without work, but this one must be for darker skins.. waste of my money :(
Love this color.. Pink shimmer, med pink, silver shimmer, with violet undertone. Very cool color, not a warm pink. Looks gorgeous combined with Filament from MAC.
I like this layered a bit, but I dont see any shimmer/glitter.. maybe a slight satin sheen if any. Very pink, and looks almost salmon pink if not layered darker... I wear this with Gleam for a pretty sea shell type beachy look..
I like this color... cross of grey and pale green, but it takes wayyyy to much to build color and Im a LLL. Right now I would purchase again, but only if this last longer than I think it will. It doesnt blend as well as i had hoped with other MAC shadows either. Too blah if not layered heavy. But when heavy, its a great color.
Powder -Estee Lauder - So Ingenious Powder Foundation

One thing you must know about this product is that it is not designed to change your skin to perfection, nor is it for more than a sheer to light medium coverage. Most people who need coverage on blemishes, tonal problems or to correct skin THIS IS NOT FOR YOU!. Now I dont have many, if any, blemishing or need for corrections. I use this for a more of slight evening out my dry cheeks and oilier T-zone, by giving same light finish. And only reapply after using blotting sheets (my choice clean & clear oil absorbing sheets! amazing ones) so it doesnt build up or clog/settle in pores, or lines if you have them. It is matte but not for oily or super oily skins. Also can be used over a liquid foundation as a touch up powder for full coverages. This isnt a miracle powder, its for people who just need a little help. So take the negative comments below with that knowledge!! I, myself, love this and always have an extra NIB on hand just in case they run out of my shade,which is warm light. I have also used Shiseidos, Urban Decays and Reflect.com, but EL far surpasses them.
