I am truly impress with this blush, I am such a lover of NARS blushes, this is as good, the quality of the blush is amazing and the packaging, wow, it is great, wonderful compact to just carry around with you in your purse, I love it
I only bought one of this set, but I am in love, I love anything in a palette, it is versatile, the color is beautiful and useful as well. It comes with 15 eyeshadows, full size eye primer, full size lip gloss, mini bronzer, and blush. Too bad it did not come with eye liner or eye pencils, but I think it is perfect for on the go. The colors are amazing, it is highly pigmented with little fallouts, and the colors also blend nicely together. Also, this palette comes with instructions as well for the last minute makeup ideas, but the results are endless, you can create so many looks with this palette, it is just what everyone need for this holiday, this is a must have and makes a great gift idea.
Actually, this palette reminds me of the one from last year as well. The color is similar from last year, but, I really like it, the shades is amazing, this palette comes with a mini DNA mascara, primer, 12 eye shadows, 4 cream eyeliners and it’s all in a gold keepsake box with a mirror inside. This is a perfect gift for the holidays. The eye shadows does not have any names, instead it is in number, it has warm brown, shimmer, dark charcoal, purple (eggplant) aqua, champagne, pinkish, and the cream eyeliners are great as well, it is the dark brown, black, dark blue and gunmetal great for smoky look. This cream liner may be used for a based as well, this is such a versatile palette, and the price is great for the holidays as gift giving. I just got two so far, one for myself and the other for my mum, but I think I might get another one or two as a gift for someone else.
This work great as a finishing powder and it is light and not caked up on the skin; somehow, it will wear off a little on my skin, so I think it is important to carry this in your purse. I apply this with a retractable kabuki brush , I do not use the sponge it comes with because this will sometimes be too much powder.
Eye Primer -Amazing Cosmetics - Eyeshadow Primer in Light

This is a great product; I will definitely repurchase this primer. I have been trying a lot of new products lately and this is one that I just love. For me, it is better than the UDPP because of the packaging but the NARS is also one of my favorite. This amazing cosmetic eyeshadow primer will neutralize the eyelids and all the colors you apply will come out as the color on the pan. I can’t remember how much this was, but it wasn’t cheap, I think somewhere in the 20’s.
this is great for starter's kit, it is inexpensive, fun and great color payoff, I think it is amazing for someone on a budget. I was very suprise, but you must use a primer with this shadows, some of the shadows actually come with the base/ eye primer. If not, anything will work as well, UDPP, or anything, otherwise the color will not stay, most of the shades are shimmer, glitters and frost, so it is important to pack on the color and remember not to swipe.
NARS Indian Summer, I really like this shadows it is shimmer and matte both are in the sand tone family so it is great for many skin tone. Especially perfect for light skin, but I have just this on darker skin tone, such as if one’s skin tone is NC40-NC45, it looks great, but a little too light; I will use a darker tone such as coconut grove. It would’ve been nicer if the color is combining. But getting back, just on the shadows itself, it is great to have, I like the color payoff and the shades are easy to work with, great for work, or school girls because it is not too busy on the eyes, or tacky.
NARS enchanted, I am completely in love with this blush, besides it is also a cream blush which is what I prefer. The color is the one that attracted me to this blush. It is amazing for my skin tone, I have light and yellow undertone, and I think it is the best shade for my cheeks. It give me a natural pinky flash, I think it is actually better than the NARS orgasm. Don’t get me wrong I love the Orgasm too and I do wear them together at night or when I know I have to take pictures. But by itself, the Enchanted is all I need.
Eyeliner -Stila - Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

Stila “Stay all day” waterproof liquid eye liner .016 fl. Oz/ oz. liq. / 0.5 ml. = I am really in love with this eyeliner, sometimes when I am doing my makeup in the early morning, I am very tire and shaky, so it does not make lining the eyes easy. But with this eyeliner, it made a world of difference, and it last from morning to night without having to touch up. I have oily lids, but I do use a primer and I love the tip applicator because it gives you a sharp fine dark line right on the lash line, love this product, it is amazing. As the matter of fact, I am going to get this for Christmas stocking gifts for the girls in the family.
If you are looking for a summer bronzer, something that will look natural with a little shin, this is the shade to go with, I use both the powder and the multiples, this is just great to packed on colors as well as making the color stay all day, when evening rolls around, and the sun is down, feel free to add some more to the chin area and cheek to really make sure you glow throughout the night, especially perfect for pictures, natural with a touch of glow.
I really really love this shadows, not only does it last, but the color stay brilliant all night long. During the day, I do not pack on the color as much, than afterwards, I like to darken this a bit with more of the darker olive/ green color to really bright the color back to life. I have petty fair skin and this is amazing contrast on the skin when it comes out on camara, however, I do have to wear false eyelashes to really bring the shape of my eyes. because the color is so vibrant, i feel like my lashes isn't full enough, but with the false eyelashes, it is just so dramatic.
I bought this simply because a lot of people rave about it, comparing these shadows to NARS and MAC, much to my surprised; it was very affordable so I did purchase a few different shades. Such as the white, champagne, black and some other ones as well, in all, I have 20 different shadows all in different colors. The consistency/ shadows are chalky and a lot of fall outs. It’s so hard to work with this shadows, this past assignment, I had to do the eye makeup before the face products, which isn’t easy. Really surprising is that a lot of people rave about it, saying the color payoff is great and dupe for other shadows. I personally do not find this to be true, when I am applying this on my clients, I want to make sure they feel and look 100%. Anything less will absolutely be my fault. To make a long story short, I will more than likely be giving this away to someone. I hope NYX will improve on the consistency so that the color is not as chalky. Disappointed.
I have this product for about two weeks now and I am really loving the shadows and the packaging. The inside mirror will lite up when open and it is great for on the go. However, it does take up some space, so I take the shadows out from the draw and I do not use the mirror that cmes with it, the graphic is too pretty to demage, as many of people know I ama NYC girl who grew up in NY til recently, so I really love this book of shadow , I am glad UD came up with this cute palette. The color pay off is great, nonetheless, they are still the same colors as their single shadows, therefore, if you already have most of the shadows, you may not want to get this palette unless, you would like to collect something cute, fun and pretty. this is going to be a limited edition collection like the alice in wonderland. But much better, I am not sure of the price yet, I think something similar to the vol. II. This Vol. III will be release in store around the beginning of october, so save and get it before it runs out. it is a must have for UD fans. Have Fun
I really love this shade is great for the lid area for darkening the shades and keeping the shimmer down, I think it is nice to have a nice matte shade in the collection.

I think this lipsticks is pretty good, the qulity is smooth, soft, vibrant, pigmented. So far, I've only been using the B20,it is soft pink but it is pretty dark for me and love it.
