Love/Hate Relationship The formula is wet, however it produces a nice deep black onto my lashes and adds nice length and volume. When it comes time to remove this mascara, I have quite the hard time. I've used so many different removers, but nothing takes it off without have to scrub a bit.
I picked this up at Sephora for $52. This set includes a full sized Shadow Insurance primer, my favorite eyeshadow primer, so that hooked me in. Regarding the packaging, it's not my favorite. I wish they hadn't chosen a bulky tin with two removable layers. Yes, everything fits in nicely, but it's a nuisance to whip it out just to get one shadow or one of the blushes. It's not HUGE, but it definitely takes up space on my vanity. As for the eyeshadow colors, they look vibrant and pretty in the tin. However, some do not transfer well onto the lid, even with a base and the primer. No matter what brush I use, I have noticed major fallout with many of the colors. I don't think it was necessary for Too Faced to insert giant chunks of glitter into a few of the shadows. "Peach Fuzz" is a pretty nude color that I'd like to use, however, it looks too glittery. There are two matte shades in the palette that work beautifully, though. Although the eyeshadows are sort of mediocre, the blushes are awesome. I'm not a bronzer girl, but I presume that I'll be using them as eyeshadow colors in place of the silly glittery browns. The highlighter is okay, just make sure to use the right brush. Overall, it's a decent set. If you already have the previous Too Faced holiday editions, I would pass because there are so many repeats.

This is my favorite eye primer. I apply this under my shadow before I go to school and everything is still there at 6pm after track practice. No creasing or fading. The only thing a bit tricky about this product is the amount to use; if you use too much, there's a "reverse" effect so obviously there's creasing
