Okay, so this set had some hits and misses. The Sephora eyeshadow has a really pretty color!! Too bad its choc full of glitter that has its sights on your under eye, your cheek bones, your lashes and even your browbone! But it will never stay on the lid. The smashbox soft lights is divine!!! I'm already a proud owner of the Soft Lights Baked Fusion Mini and now this one has been welcomed to the family with the same amount of love. The Too Faced blush has been a bit of a disappointment... It's been a real challenge to coax the product out of the pan and onto a brush to that I can wear it.. I've had to wrestle with it some and discovered that I need a kabuki brush to make it work. Once that got sorted, its been fun. But the product is hard and difficult to work with. You better put aside a couple of extra minutes if you really MUST have this product on your face. I haven't gotten the chance to try the nail polish, but it looks like exactly my kinda color! The Fresh Lip treatment is a pink tinted balm that feels great after a lip exfoliation! A little on the greasy side, but its never run on me, so I like it! Although I do fear it breaking in the tube.. fingers crossed!! If there's one thing I absolutely LOVE in this kit, it's the Tarte mascara. It's a waterproof formula that has flaked on me AFTER several (14) ungodly hours of wear. Curl your lashes and apply two coats and that curl is locked in until you go after it with waterproof makeup remover. It ain't goin' no where otherwise. The Urban Decay setting spray has been compared to MACs Fix +, but in my opinion, it can't even hold a candle to it. It has a scent to it, and does more of a splatter than a mist - which resulted in uneven setting. Not cool :( I haven't been able to love the Smashbox lipgloss as much as I want to, as its light and milky on its own. But the disadvantages end there. I've paired it with several lipsticks and it does really well! Plus its full sized! Not like the usual smashbox travel sized puny glosses.

These were some drug store products - from Canada and the UK that are just so much fun to use! I'm not too thrilled with the sleek blush as it looks more gold than rose but the revlon one is lovely! It's the perfect 'wind-burn' blush to complement fair to medium skin tones. The crackle polish, I'm still trying to understand.. I haven't quite gotten the hang of it yet and it flakes off super fast. The two eye pencils are re-purchases, so you can only guess how much fun they are! One its brown with gold glitter and the other is a turquoise blue - SOOO much fun when applied to the waterline! The contour palette has been a great bargain product. I LOVE the highlighter end of it! But be very careful using this product, especially if you're going to be photographed.

These were some nail polishes I got because I adored the colors and the SIZED!!!! And here's the interesting part - they're all MATTE finished!! It drove my manicurist mad as she is a great fan of the glosses polishes and almost chased my outta the salon with a topcoat claiming that the nails didn't look nice as a matte finish!!! I was rather amused.
Now that concludes my great shopping spree and the trouble I've run into is the space issue. My makeup vanity has gone beyond capacity and that has given my mom an odd feeling of accomplishment, evident by the smug expression she wears each time I mention I'm running out of space.
So she thinks...
Hee hee hee :D
