Quick and Easy

I bought this set in the color "Lovely", and I think it lives up to its name. The eyeshadow is a nice neutral sparkly (but not glitter) taupe color, the lipstick is a mauvey pink with a very subtle hint of shimmer, and the blush is a golden peachy coral pink with a definite highlight. For my daily makeup I am pretty low maintenance, so this set is perfect to add just a little natural color without too much effort. The eyeshadow at first appears to be a powder, but once you start using your finger/brush/applicator the creaminess comes out, and it is easy to blend and apply. I have found it to be complementary to a lot of my other eyeshadows and it is also just a nice color by itself. It is also somewhat buildable for more "pop". I have learned to use primer under all of my eyeshadows, so I don't know how it wears without it, but with primer it lasts the whole day. The lipstick goes on very smoothly and feels moisturizing. I would say it wears about average...doesn't last all day, but I don't reapply that often either. The blush is probably my favorite of the three products...I don't typically use a lot of blush because I am afraid of looking clownish and I am definitely not skilled enough for contouring and this product is perfect for me because it is a fairly subtle color and so easy to use! I just swipe it across my cheekbones and blend with my fingers, and I get a soft peachy glow with some highlight. I can add blend in another swipe or two for more intense color. For a blush dummy like me, it is pretty foolproof, and eliminates the need to attempt an additional cheek highlighter.
