Pros: velvet!
I bought the Velvet Cream eye color and I love it. I always have to have a light color to highlight under my brow and sometimes as a base for other colors and this fits perfectly into my needs! These kind of colors are great for those of us with medium skin and dark hair.
It's kind of like a very light vanilla color. I love that it's matte (because I don't always want sparkles) and it glides on with ease as all of the other colors I've tried so far. I'll probably get a couple more containers so that I have a long-term stock of it.

Pros: nice
I love this eye makeup remover. It really does take off your eye makeup with great ease and leave your eyes with a silky feeling. You def need to use it with a cotton ball though (can be used with tissue but not as quickly effective as with a cotton ball).
If you're wearing mascara it can take a bit more work to get it off but nothing out of the ordinary - no scrubbing, just more buffing/swiping. But it works very well and if you don't have mascara on, your other eye makeup will be gone with a couple of swipes.
Recommended and will continue to use.

Hummingbird Color - great color but not for me

Pros: great product
I had to give it 5 hearts because there's nothing wrong with it, like the other eye colors it glides on gracefully and is a great product - it's just not the color for me. It's too peachy and I'm not into peachy, I like more earthy tones. I hesitated when I bought it because it said it was in the peach family but the picture made it look somewhat brownish too so I decided to try it. It's going back.
But it would be a great color for anyone who likes peachy colors, it's not a bright peachy, it's a dark peachy but peachy nevertheless!

Purrfect eye color is perfect!

Pros: purrfect
(Ladies we have to identify the color we're reviewing because otherwise no one knows what color you're talking about - there are lots of colors on the same page as whatever color you bought so please help us all and specify. ...BE you guys need to add a "color" field to the review form or note that ppl need to specify the colorso ppl know to identify the color... Thanks!)
I bought the Purrfect green and I love it. It's a deep olive color, perfect for medium skin and dark hair (I'm sure for others too). I always have green in my eye shadow collection and this one is def there to stay!

Pros: must have
I love this brush. The bigger end is perfect for all over full coverage and buffing and the smaller end is AMAZING to use when lining your eyes. The small end is smaller than what you see in the picture which makes it perfect for lining your eyes.
I'm considering buying another one since it's under Last Chance and I really don't want to be without this brush in the future when my current one wears out. It's one of the must-haves in my collection.
I def recommend grabbing it!

Perfection in a brush

Pros: perfection!
This brush is amazing. I love it. It's THE brush for getting in the crease and only in the crease ...and doing so with ease. It's also fantastic for other precision applications. I will ALWAYS have this brush in my collection and it will be used almost all of the time. They don't get much better than this. I'm in love with this brush.

Pros: wow
OMG I LOVE this mascara. I'm not much of a mascara wearer, I like a more natural look most of the time and do it up with mascara every now and then - I naturally have long beautiful lashes so I just don't always find the need to add more makeup to my face.
I put this on for the first time and was AMAZED! It's better than any mascara I've ever bought from a store. It literally defines your lashes and makes them AMAAAAZING!
It looked like I had on fake eyelashes (in a good way, not a bad way) because my lashes were so defined. I forgot how long my lashes really are until I put this mascara on and it defined them.
I'm sold. I still won't be wearing mascara all of the time (although honestly I might wear it a little more often now because I KNOW I'll get tons more compliments with my lashes looking this fab) but when I do, it will be this. I'll never buy mascara from anywhere else again in my life.
I didn't wear it for long so I can't speak on the longevity of it and what happens after a day of wearing it yet but it made my lashes look so beautiful. I never thought just a mascara could make lashes look this dang good!
Def highly recommended.

Pros: love
(FYI: we need to make sure we leave the exact color we're reviewing since there are lots of different colors on most of the pages (BE you guys should add a field for the color in the review section) - the review doesn't just post to the color you bought; it posts to the page the color is on which almost always has a variety of other colors as well so if you don't identify the color you're reviewing we'll be confused and not know)
I bought the Wearable Brown Medium and the Wearable Brown Dark and love them both (and will be purchasing the Brown Light because I love browns and need all of the shades!)
The brown medium can be lightly applied for a medium shade or more heavily applied to reach a slightly darker shade. It glides on gracefully and it's fabulous.
The brown dark is a great dark and is fantastic to use as a liner as well - use it dry for a soft liner and use it wet for a more bold line (using it wet it's just like a regular liner). This is my primary intention for the brown dark because it is def dark and I don't like too much dark on my eyelid itself but it's the perfect color to use if you do like dark colors on your eyes and it's amazing as a liner (as a crease color too).
If you're into browns def get the medium and the dark brown - and I'd say get the light brown too even though I haven't tried it yet. I have complete faith in it due to my experience with the other two shades and it will be one of my next purchases.

Velvet Pistachio Eyecolor (crushed mint) (size: small)
 
are these shimmary or matte?
normally velvet means matte but the pictures look like they have shimmer in them
They lean towards a matte but they're velvety so not a shimmer but not totally dull either. Really a great in between (and again, more toward the matte side of the spectrum). I bought the velvet cream and love it, I'll be looking at what other colors I want because I love my velvet cream.
