This palette is Urban Decay's Masterpiece. I was first drawn to this palette when I read Temptalia's reviews and saw the swatches.Prior to this purchase I had purchased Urban Decay Lipsticks and Glosses for their "edgy colors" this was back in the 90's when I was rocking Gash lipstick and I could rock the bright colors :) now I crave neutral colors and this is a great palette for that. You can acheive various intensities, of neutral, bronzey, smokey and even understated looks. The colors are smooth and the pigmentation is fantastic. Neutral loving people, rejoice!

I was lemming over this brush for a few weeks. I finally caved in and went to go check it out at a MAC Counter. I had no idea how tapered it was it was like an eyeshadow brush for the face. I love it because of its precision. I tend to be heavy handed with blush and this brush really helps. I love it for highlighting and for applying blush it is FANTASTIC. I really hope MAC makes this a permanent item!!!!! MAC I hope you are listening!!

I bought this at Walgreens as a BOGO. I was deciding between the Eggplant and the Black one and chose the Black one. This is a great black eyeliner. I am very very impressed. I have various cream and gel liners in MAC (Blacktrack, Black Chromaline, Smolder and a few KOHL Power Pencils) MUFE, Revlon and Loreal. It is important to me to get the black eyeliner right since it is a staple and it is the go to look for cat eyes. I have only been wearing it for 2 days but the staying power is great, particularly in the waterline. It is a pain to remove though. I always remove my eye and face make up with EVOO and a cotton pad. The EVOO helps break the product down and helps with the raccoon eye issue if you take most of it off before you wash your face. I will be consistently wearing this product for a few days to see if it works. If it does, I think I have just found a new favorite :)
