Lovers of Swish eye shadow will love this color. The color is very similar to the eye shadow in the tube. If applied a lot, it's a shimmery pink threaded with lots of silver wash. Lovely color! It smells just like strawberries, though it also does smell like a light whiff of berry fav or watermelon. The taste is okay, but the scent is wonderfull!
The color of this tasti reminds me of Casa Blanca eye shadow and Gilded White eye liner...as in it appears to be pearly whiteish, but when applied is a soft metallic gold/yellow. It smells just like a pina colada! When applied slightly, it goes great over other lip colors for that added jist of yellow metallic sheer wash. By itself, it's not a scary gold on your lips at all.
If you like MAC's trax eye shadow, you'll love this tasti, since the color is very similar to trax. A mauveish purple plum with flecks of gold/bronze. It smells like mixed berries, or appropriately label from the website "blackberries." Smells fantastic though! The color on your lips isn't dark at all, and the taste is okay, but not as grand as the chocolate ones.
I adore this color! For all lovers of purples you won't regret this color. It's a rich dark magenta color. It does look like noctournelle, but noctournelle is a dark purple, hepcat is lighter in the purple spectrum and is a very unique color. Goes great with practically anything and looks awesome with deep truth at outer corners! So glad MAC is keeping this color, and then use naked lunch to highlight over hepcat!
This color is quite unique...visually it looks like mythology, even a light swipe of each color you probably couldn't tell the difference. When you put it on the lids, it's a lovely brownish orangey color. Great as a crease color above earthly delight. Much prettier than mythology and more orange when applied w/ many layers.

If you bought all girl pigment, this color is just like that color, but darker. It's a pink with very visible silver sparkles. It has an opal undertone like seedy pearl and the pink looks sort of like swish. Visually in the pot it looks like a cross between creme de violet and swish. It's a great color and goes great with creme de violet, goldbit or glamma ray- you name it! A must buy!
Visually it can be mistaken for casa blanca, but this color is a satin. It's a soft pastel yellow with barely any visible shimmer-only in the pot. The difference from casa blanca is that when applied it's a solid mass of pastel yellow. Under a cream color base like shell you can sort of make it shimmery like casa blanca but it only makes the solid pastel yellow stand out. If you hate casa blanca then this color might work for you. But I find this color hard to work with since it is a very light color that requires some layering and the color itself only appeals in the pot not on skin. It goes great with hipnotique.
Rio de Rosa is a nice carnation pink. Unfortunately there isn't much to do with this color. It's darker than petalescent. I've worn it with swish and casa blanca. It can go with coral, but if you have a lot of pinks, you'll survive without this color. If you want to get it, you can get it for the sake of having it in your collection. Unless petalescent was too light than this color is just a notch better. At first stroke it's not that pigmented so some layering is required. This color is what pink is supposed to be, but surprisingly a bit dull.
This color looks just like its namesake. Yes it looks like guacamole. It's a nice yellow green, or if you're a painter, hooker's green. It's darker than sprout and has some gold shimmery undertones. So imagine avocado and sprinkling irridescent gold paint :) Great for use with parrot and casa blanca.
Deep truth reminds me of stroke of midnight from holidazzle minus the sparkles. It's a dark navy blue color with shimmery undertones, hence it being a frost. It does look a bit similar to contrast, but if you're looking for a dark blue then this color's fit..it's better than nehru. It goes great with hepcat or tilt.
If you're a lover of SWISH you're probably going to buy this color. It looks very similar to swish but more silvery iciness to it. It's a soft pink with opal undertones and the silver sparkles. You can apply it lightly or darkly. It goes great with violet pigment, parrot, tilt, cranberry, you name it. Too bad it's a limited edition, so go out and get one now!
I LOVE this color-a frosty yellow. I know visually it looks very similar to unorthodox but don't forget that unorthodox is a satin while casa blanca is a frost. You get the impression that it's white but really it's a frosty/metallic yellow on your skin. It goes great with parrot, guacamole, and pink /or green eyeshadows! It's definitely a must buy before it's too late!!!!

Very cute packaging, and surprisingly, I used to use this a lot and still it's not empty yet, even though the bottle seems small. The lady at sephora recommended using this product as a body shimmer and I can see why. An extremely strong shimmer of light pink and gold. Don't be afraid to be glittery! It lasts for a long time too, not much fading. Very versatile product.
Not very much product for so much money, I'd recommend NARS instead. However,this color is very nice. A metallic red, similar to Urban Decay gash. It's not too intense red, more of a nice red mixed with brown and pink for that red, but not too red feel. Good color, can be very intense when applied a lot. Red can look nice when applied carefully. Just hate the packaging. It's quite hard to open and sometimes it causes me to sratch the powder on the inside. Really smooth and a little bit goes a long way!
An amazing metallic turqouise! I love this color! Very versatile and stays on all day. Apply dry, and it looks light and shimmery, apply wet, and it's extremely intense and bright! Don't be afraid to use it wet! Looks like MAC e/s in tilt when applied lightly. Looks good with a bunch of colors! A must buy!
