Here are the swatches from the things that, well, needed swatches! lol

Blushing and Bronzing Powder:


My Review:
I love this, I think the bronzing powder is really good when buffed out a bit, and the blush is a great everyday color :)

Golden Bronzer:


My Review:
LOVE this! Perfect for light to medium complexions, has a little shimmer and has a very natural glow.

Complexion Perfection:

here they are separately:

and when swirled together:

My Review:
So...not loving this. I think it looks cakey and doesn't really do much for my skin. Its a good product to keep in your bag as a refreshing powder though. :)

under eye Concealer/Highlighter in Light

rubbed in:

My Review:
I like this, but I don't love it. The concealer part isn't quite pigmented enough for my dark circles. I do love the highlighter though, its wonderful for the tops of the cheek bones, the brow bone and down the bridge of the nose.

Corrective Concealer


My Review:
The consistency of this is really creamy and they blend well, but like the under eye concealer, I don't think they are pigmented enough. I used all 4 tones and at first they gave me flawless looking skin, but just 2 hours later, they were already wearing off!


My Review:
I L-O-V-E the blushes! A lot of them are matte, which I adore, and they have a medium pigmentation so they are very buildable! For a natural everyday look, choose peachy keen or tickled pink.

Eye shadows:

My Review:
Really beautiful shades...I love that they are all very natural. The pigmentation is really great with a base under it, VERY buildable! My faves are amethyst and wild wheat (it almost matches my skin!)

Other items I ordered:
Eye Primer and line sealer: I think the eye primer is actually really good. It tends to crease a little, but not too much on me personally. The line sealer is cook, I haven't really played with it much but I am going to try some more soon! :)

Lengthening and Volumizing Mascara, waterproof: I really like this formula. The brush is a little strange because the handle is so long, but I really like the mascara it's self. Very little flaking and/or smudging...for $3.00, not bad!

Eyebrow treat and tame: I LOVE this too! awesome product. It makes my brows look very manicured and fills in color quickly so I don't have to worry about messing with a pencil to fill them in.

Complexion Brush: Perfect for pressed powder or MAC MSF's, also great for blush!
Eyeshadow C Brush: an awesome densely packed eyeshadow brush. I am really glad I bought this one!!
Blush Brush: Excellent for blush and contouring, distributes color very evenly.
Powder Brush: This is very soft and is wonderful for buffing in mineral foundation and regular powder as well.
Kabuki Brush (face): AWESOME brush....the best brush in this line I think!

So that's my haul/review guys! I hope you enjoyed it! Let me know if you ordered anything!! I hope this helped you make some decisions on future purchases! :)

Awesome swatches/ photos. I can tell some of the eye shadows are more pigmented than others.
