Not as good as other kits

I got this one as my eye club delivery this month and I gotta say first (although slight) disapointment. All my others have been amazing. Great colors great brushes, have had lots of fun with them.
Pros :
Berry custard is Lovely.
Light show is nice.
Cons :
The brush - aweful. Really bad. Any other kit I fell in love with the brushes. This... It's smaller than a regular full sized brush... I wouldn't mind that but to use it is downright painful. Even with the lightest of touch the bristles are hard and sharp and unpleasant.
Lucky penny - I thought I would like this one but something about it just isn't as nice as other colors. It's a little heavy to apply to the crease but if you get it thin enough it's lovely in their suggested look. However as a liner don't bother unless you wet it as it's too thin for that on it's own. Mine was strangely clumpy as well (never seen a BE eyecolor do that).
Lucky penny as a liner i used thinly and then used intense black big and bright eyeliner inside it to create a more smokey eye and liked it that way. But the brush... I don't even think I'll be able to give it away.

Phrases Chosen: new favorite liner, creamy, easy to apply, bold color
With all the either loved it or hated it reviews I thought I might chip in my experience with this product. (I apologize in advance for the length of the post, but hopefully someone will find it beneficial. :D )
I think the best way to describe it, for me, is the title. Like most BE products they're different and take some getting used to if you're used to traditional make up.
At first I didn't like this product I was going to use it for a smokey eye type but it is rather smudgy, my eyes watered, though right away I did notice the creamy glide application and loved that. I don't have the steadiest hand and other pencils I just gave up on not being able to get any color on my waterline.
I thought I might return it but was lazy and ended up not. I'm really glad that happened though as I've come to really enjoy this eyeliner and use it near every time I do my make-up.
Each time I used it became easier and easier to get a nice look and eyes didn't water. I found myself having to correct less and less and even when I had to apply my make up in the car. With no room for error I did actually line my entire eye and it looked great! Any other product or liner I would not have been able to do that. (I'm far from expert and definately not a daily user so for a novice like me to achieve that was very nice.)
As I got better with using it the 'racoon' eye and fallout seemed to get alot better too. If you still have problems a q-tip in the purse helps for that little quick touch up after wearing for several hours. I have worn it all day and by the end of the day I still looked made up without any re-application. (So if nothing else it definately has potential for staying power.)
And as a tip with it I find it alot easier to correct if I start with eyeliner and work my way out and do my base last. I use nothing but BE and that way I can clean up the little bit of fallout and look perfect.
In conclusion, even with the trouble I had with it at first I'd still give it 5 out of 5. This has become my favorite liner with many versatile options (beyond just the smokey eye I bought it for). I definately aim to pick up several other colors as soon as I get the chance. Love it!

What are the colors included in this collection?
Is the dark color a purple or black? Hard to tell. Also what are the other colors in the collection?
Zooming in can help give a better idea but...

Lucky penny is a dark purple, with a little copper hint to it.
Light show the peach frost matte description goes pretty well for this one.
Berry custard, is a nice cool-toned pink. In person it's a touch more pink than the image gives the idea of. My personal favorite out of it and I'm not the biggest fan of pink anything. :)
