I really enjoy this product, however, i dont use this for its intended purpose (heat protectant). instead, i spray this all over my hair even if im not using heat on it because it tames my frizz! i find this to work just as well on my hair as a heavier serum and it doesnt weigh it down as a serum would! the only thing i dislike is the sprayer, it is good for the most part, but every now and then it will spray in a very thin jet in one section, so that requires a bit more combing through. for reference, i have very thick, frizzy, wavy hair that is a few inches past my shoulders, and i use 10-15 spritzes all over and finger comb it though.
i just got this product a few days ago, but i already really like it! the staying power is great and i also really like the color. i was looking for a light pink, slightly coral color, and for me, this fits the bill perfectly! also, this (like all blushes from the dream mousse line) are very blendable, so this makes it ideal for setting almost any powder blush. it has a bit more sparkle than i would have prefered, so i typically set it with a more matte blush, so it balances it out. sidenote: packaging is awesome! i dropped it on linoleum, and the heavy glass didnt break!

I love this stuff! The color, the texture, the adorable packaging.. its awesome! I personally do not apply with my fingers because i think its unsanitary, so i use a normal blush brush. I use this every day because it complements my Asian/olive complexion and will go with most of my eye looks. The only reason why I'm taking off one lippie is because it fades a bit as the day progresses, but even this can be a pro for people who are beginning and may have a heavier hand.
ohmygoodness. this product is amazing! the pigmentation, the texture, the colors! all are perfect 10s in my book. my favorite shades in this palette are the top matte color (warm toned off white), middle matte color (warm toned/golden brown), and the darkest shimmery color (warm toned brown with beautiful golden shimmer). i basically use these as a trio when im in a rush (lid, outer corner,and highlight), and its so easy, i love it!

i love all 5 of these brushes!(: they are sooo soft! my favorite is the blush/powder brush! its so soft and great for blush or setting foundation! the eyeshadow brush is almost too soft, i use it for blending/applying a light wash of a brow bone color. the concealer brush is just so so, i dont use it that much. same with the eyebrow brush. the liner brush is great as well, its a fairly thin line (although, im just getting into eyeliner application with a brush, so maybe im not the best judge for that..).
i loove this! i must have a darker skintone than those below me, because for me, this is a perfect lid color! its sooo nice!(: i had to take off one lippie because its really crumbly, but here's a tip: use it wet by wetting your brush before dipping it into the pan. then, TAP OFF THE EXCESS! wetting the brush will help the dusty bits stick to the brush! i hope this helps people enjoy the shadow, no matter how they decide to use it (crease, outer corner, lid, ect)!
i wish i had read the reviews of this on MUA... this stuff is terrible.unlike others, i personally think its fine as a base coat; however, as a top coat... ugh. it takes forever to dry and when i wake up after doing my nails, i will have spots where the fabric pattern from my sheets has transfered to my nails... it takes a few days for them to become undentable, and a day or two after that, they begin to chip. if it werent for my tight budget, i would be throwing this in the garbage asap. as soon as i get even close to finishing this, i will be getting something of higher quality.

i reallyyy like this quad! the main reason i bought it was because i needed a shimmery white and (as almost everyone below me has said) the beautiful burgundy color! both are really pigmented and lovely! if i want a really simple look, i will put the white all over my lid and the burgundy in my outer corner/crease. i tried using the black as a liner, but even if i wet the brush, the color wasn't dark enough. the main reason why i take off 1 lippie is because of the silver! mine might as well have been clear because that what it looks like on my finger for a swatch! awful! i know that other quads aren't like this because i have swatched a friends and on hers the silver was just as pigmented as the white and burgundy! so im sad that i got a bad quad, but the rest of the colors are awesome! will definitely rebuy! (hopefully the re bought one will have a better silver!)
