Eye Shadow - Sydney Grace - Below Zero

Below zero is a pressed pigment. It looks very blue in pan and swatched but on the eyes is most definitely a "blurple". Not nearly as dark either but plenty of pigment. It has a beautiful shine but not a metallic. No fallout. Blends in a snap. I guess you would call it a cool shade but I'm very warm, yellow undertones and cool shades usually look terrible on me but this looks great …Read more

Bought the color "just dance". On my skintone, light/med yellow undertones (sorry dont know my Mac rating), it showed up as a warm fuchsia. Many blushes show up totally different of my skin then they look in the pan, and purple is a tough shade to get right, so I'm not faulting for that. Although not the purple blush of my dreams, I still really like the color. The high rating …Read more

Had the exact same experience as reviewer swimblock. Tried to return an online purchase with the packing slip, was told I needed the original shipping confirmation email. I didn't even have the email anymore. It was a while later until I got back there, by this time it was over 60 days and I could only get store credit. Before I went back, I read the instructions on website for returning …Read more

Jul/30/2014

After much googling of swatches and reading of reviews, I decided on Full of Joy in my quest for the perfect lilac blush. Despite packing it on with multiple layers, it didn't show up. At all. I don't know my "NC" rating, but I'm medium, warm, with yellow undertones. I have many light/ baby pink blushes (cheap ones too) which appear much lighter in pan compared to foj …Read more

I don't know what the other reviewer is talking about. This is extremly pigmented. The key is to use a sponge tip applicator with these shadows. Then you can really achieve true to pan color, no primer needed. Beautiful shade, more appropiate for summer time I think.

Killer Watt is part of Spring 2013 le collection, "naked tips and neon lips" which also includes colorburst shades orange glow and atomic pink. Difficult shade to describe, mostly a pink pinky coral. Creme finish, no shimmer or glitter. A unique color, a beautiful color for spring & summer. I don't have anything else in my stash like it. Thats the good. The bad is its not …Read more

Apr/30/2012

Purchased Natural. On me, beautiful warm pink with peach tones. The perfect blend of pink of peach actually. Gives a lovely glow. It is very pigmented, which I love, as I don't like to "work" in order to get color payoff from my products. This shade is bright/dark enough to show up, but not so dark or bright that you're ever in danger of looking like a clown. Put it on …Read more

Very dry, very matte, very beautiful. A warm true orange. It's bold, but a blot tones things down a bit. Happens to suit my complextion, medium with yellow undertones. I can see this looking fab with a tan in summer. But, I'm wearing it now (dead of winter) and can't stop checking out my lips in the mirror! It's making me feel sassy & sexy.
A welcome addition to my …

I didn't find these pigmented at all. The colors are not as intense on your eyes as the swatches on arms indicate. You can only get a fat line with these, and that fat line is not very smudgeable. If you do manage to smudge it, it makes the color even weaker. Tried it as a cream eyeshadow, it was just "okay". Since I have plenty of e/s that I actually like, these will go back to …Read more

Glosses are gritty and have a funky smell; blush does not show up at all, shadows are okay but nothing to write home about. The compact itself is cute and functional, I like the mirror, but who cares about that when the product inside is crappy? Back to Ulta it goes.
