Overall Opinion:

I liked using these products because it forced me to be creative with the look I put together for it.   I was semi disappointed with the shadow colors, I guess expected the burlesque palette to have bolder tones.  The lip gloss was great and the loose shimmer powder worked as a great highlighter.  The liquid pen liner was fun and is perfect for those of you just starting to use liquid liner.  The cream liner in the palette says gray but it comes off slightly teal when I applied it softer.
