Application is pretty easy, not too stiff and not too runny, the color however is not jet black. Have oily skin and the color fades over the course of the day and tends to fade. NC44 for reference

I was expecting more from this liner, staying power isn't great, the color wasn't very dark and smudged. I've tried macs black track, clinique and this one. The order in which I liked them from best to worst mac>clinque>bobbi brown

Hands down, the best darkest longest lasting most smudgeproof eyeliner I have ever tried. Better than urban decays
The color is a true jet black. The consistency is what I couldn't get over. It's almost like a mouse? It was so difficult to load the brush with the proper amount of liner and get a smooth line, if it weren't for the consistency, this would be perfect bc it has awesome staying power and the color is a true matte jet black.
I would compare the consistency of this e/s to that of lustre's by MAC. The color is gorgeous in the pan, when you go to apply the shadow comes off as gritty and sheer.
This is my HG pigment, its a lighter version of my skin tone. Perfect level of shimmeriness , great pigmentation. Great blendability, not chunky at all. Its a nude/tan/lalmost champagne ish color..
Very pretty copper color. This pigment has the same micro sparkle as the other pigments in the rushmetal collection. The color goes on smoothly, and there is high pigmentation, you need a *very* small amount to get good color payoff. Blendability is phenomenal as well. NC44 for reference.
I like this mascara, I have a naturally decent amount of lashes, and I need something to add color and add a little bit of volume as well as separate my lashes which *most* mascaras fail miserably at. I tried the first time and the outcome was sucky, because I used too much formula. The second time, my lashes were separated pretty well, theres a trick though, I had to be very gentle and put the brush to the base of my lashes, wiggle, and bring forward being careful to not get too much on the rest of my lashes and the outcome was perfect, having a very delicate and light application bc too much would cause clumps. Overall the best mascara I've had so far.
Think mint chocolate chip colored ice cream except diluted with milk a lot more, so its a verrrry light pastelly green. There are teeny tiny silver sparkles in it as well which aren't overpowering, just add a teeny bit of sparkle with the shadow. I didn't think this would look good on my nc44 skin / brown eyes but it actually looks really good. The color brightens up my eye with a subtle hint of green color and subtle sparkle.
Good mascara for every day use. Doesn't add a whole lotta volume though. I cant get this to separate the lashes as well as I would like, there are no clumps though which is a good thing. The brush is a bristle type, not the rubber kind.
Great palette yet again. The colors in this one are purples and browns. This palettes outer 4 highlighter colors are a little matter compared to the sand castle one which is a good thing seeing as the sand castle ones were overly frosty. Of the 4 colors: There is a taupe which is the same as the one in the sand castle palette, a deep blackish brown which is less shimmery than the other 4 colors. An eggplant purple almost maroon shade and a deep violet color. Overall great palette.
Deep royal purple with hot pink glitter particles in it, almost indigo in color. Great for creating a smoky purple look. I pressed this pigment, and it was a little difficult to use bc of this, maybe because this pigment is a teensy wee bit more matte than others.

This product is absolutely great for amplifying or making the colors of eyeshadow more vivid. I did a swatch test on my wrist and the difference was unbelievable. Other than that it also helps with creasing. Great buy!
Initially I was hesitant to get this palette because it seems like a cheap ds brand. Once I got onto MUA and heard the raves I decided to give it a try and boy o boy I was not disappointed. The 4 strips of color are gorgeous and I can seem them working on anyone. There is a taupe, gold, copper, and deep brown/bronze color in the strips. The 4 corner colors are more of highlight colors, the top left is insanely white frosty, and the bottom corner ones are chalky neutral highlight colors and have micro particles of glitter in them, I personally didn't like these 4 corner colors. The strip colors were SUPEREMLY pigmented, SUPREMELY blendable, and not overly shimmery but more subtly glowy. After I put on the shadow, I would run over the color with a damp brush with mixing medium on it and it made the color look spectacular! Edit: The taupe in this one is the same as the taupe in the paradise cove palette.
Sheer nude color with subtle shimmer. Great for highlighting brow bone. Goes on very smoothly, and highly pigmented like most mac pigments.
