wow, i see what all the hype is about!! first of all, the blush is to die for. the color isnt bright and it doesnt really give you the sexy *flush* but it blends so well and really brings out my cheeks. i love the eyeshadows in this they are so pigments! i swiped my angle eyeshadow brush into the dark brown to get some color for my outer eye and when i applied it it was so pigmented! im used to having to swipe a few times to get color that dark! its so worth it imo. i have already ordered backups =)
