The Reviews

Flower Hurricane & Rainbow Moon Heart Ache w/ primer
All the eyeshadows were so beautiful! They glide on nice and easy and pack tons of color. I was a bit wary when I swatched them because of how incredibly shimmery they were. I was nervous they were going to be too much glitter and no substance. However, the colors are still vibrant without being cartoony and combined with the primers, stay on all day!

The primer is fabulous at what it does. However, it is very difficult to glide on your eyes since the formula is so thick. It was difficult to spread without pulling my eyelid. The stick primer was much easier but still wasn't as smooth as I'd hoped. But as for staying power, it does amazing.

Cara Mia
The liquid lipstick was GORGEOUS. The color was very rich and I felt like Morticia Addams when I wore it. I do suggest moisturizing your lips like crazy before you apply though. It can make dry lips flake like crazy. However, just a light balm underneath keeps this looking fabulous and feeling perfect!

The Sweet Transvestite Joystick was a gorgeous blood red. It had a copper hue to it which paired well on top of the the Cara Mia lipstick. I thought the color was going to be redder but it turned out to be a wonderfully unexpected shade. I definitely got Rocky Horror vibes from it and it glides on so smoothly.

Once Bitten
My Once Bitten Joystick has become a daily fave. Not too hard to pair with any eyes but still bold enough for me. It glides on with full coverage in one swipe and I like the shape of the tubes. Very easy to store and the color is great!

As for the overall purchase, the prices were great for the amazing quality of the products. I also loved the service. I ordered my products during the Black Friday Sale and received them before the 13th. It was obvious they took time in making each product great and look awesome. With loose glitter, packaging can often get a little messy in transit. I can gladly say all my shadows were in great condition with limited glitter fallout. Some of the seals inside the product were a bit shifted but since the package was well sealed on the outside and inside, no harm was done. 

My Final Thoughts

All the eyeshadows were great and I've loved the multitude of colors. I was able to pair some of the colors extremely well with each other and they also pair nicely with Urban Decay's Electric Palette. For a brow highlight, I love Mercy's shade "Right Beside You". I also love the Sailor Moon shade "Rainbow Moon Heart Ache" for highlighting my inner eye. The Widowmaker shade "One Shot, One Kill" and the Sailor Moon "Tuxedo La Smoking Bomber" shade both help give depth to a killer smokey eye and I love pairing them with the One Ring shade. Seriously, the glitter in One Ring is PERFECT.

Out of all these products I have to say my winner for best product is the One Ring eyeshadow due to the amount of glitter packed into it. It's great to pack on your lid or your lips on top of red lipstick. Basically, this is like the chocolate of products. You can never go wrong with it.
