Don't get me wrong, Urban Decay make good eyeshadows, and I own two of the Naked palettes, but this palette's worth really is dependent on what you want. The shade range is obviously very specific, and I don't think it gives too much flexibility, but if the kinds of looks you want to make are all earthy with golden and brown tones, and you are willing to pay the hefty price tag, then by all means go for it.
I will say I bet this would look better on someone with a different skin tone to me - I am quite pale and slightly pink toned and some of the shades just seem to make me look sickly, so thmore...ink of what would work for your skin tone when considering purchasing.
But, in general, the shades are easily blended, very pigmented and do often look lovely.
I have repurchased this concealer a few times and find it is able to do what a few concealers fail to do - is able to be worn without foundation. It is not the highest coverage, for that I would direct you towards Nars or the Collection concealer, but it is able to be worn on your skin without being blended into other product. For daily use when I prefer not to wear a full face, I use this every time. I will say I do think it is pricey, especially since it seems like such a small product, but is still significantly less than high end ones and does seem to last a decent amount of time . Anothermore... weakness is that it isn't the most long lasting concealer, and can be helped by setting with powder. Also, what is probably its biggest downfall for some, is that the shade range is extremely limited so it only really beneficial for those with lighter skin tones. In this day and age, we really shouldn't be seeing this continued bias in shade tones towards lighter people, so it is a real disappointment.
Therefore, I'd say it has its pros and cons, but if you are looking for a concealer you can wear on its own (and within the shade range of course), I'd say this is for you.
Benefit is known for their excellent brow products, but this is by far my favourite (significantly better than Foolproof brow powder). I get so many compliments on how I have such 'natural looking ' brows, and this is the answer. I don't know the technical terms, but one of the shades is a darker, creamier, 'wetter' powder that you put on first and styles the brow in place and fills in the gaps. You would use this to the tail of your brow or for the edges to shape it. The lighter 'drier' shade can be used afterwards on top of the other shade to set it in place and to be put where your brow stamore...rts (as you want this to be the lightest area - brows filled in too much is not the look). Combined with a cheap brow mascara gives the best results. Admittedly it is very expensive for such a small product, but it lasts ages, honestly. The only reason I repurchased mine was because it had expired, not because it had run out - and I use it every day!
I don't buy too many high end products, but this is the one exception I make as have repurchased it a good 4 times by now. Whilst expensive, the product lasts a surprisingly long time and is easily blended, with great coverage, is not cakey and stays on a lot longer than drugstore 'dupes'. 100% recommend.
The quality of the product is outstanding when you compare it to the price. It prevents frizz (which is too common an occurrence, for me anyways *sigh*) and doesn't weigh your hair down or make it look greasy. It's not magical and it cannot completely style your hair so set your expectations straight, but it does what it says on the tin and calms down your hair. A must buy.
Pigmentation? Check. Variety of beautiful shades? Double check. Doesn't make you look like a clown? Triple check. These subtle shades of blusher are creamy and stay on your face all-darn-day. Another plus is it stops me from looking pasty/sickly/dead...which is always good :P
I really love this stuff - theBalm is just killing it recently! Very pigmented meaning you don't need a lot of it for the desired effect meaning it lasts a long time and easy to blend in. It is sadly quite expensive, though, which is the only reason it's not my 'go-to' bronzer. Still, if you've got the dolla', I'd say get spending! :)
I'm actually not too big a fan of this product. It's okay and it is very cheap, so I guess you get what you paid for. But it's not pigmented, hard to blend in and the shades themselves don't really give the 'sunkissed' desired effect. And the blusher and highlighter are nothing to rave about either, the way they're all packed together hardly gives you any powder.
Gah. What more can I say except that it actually does make you look like a goddess! Well, as close to as you can be! It has a perfect subtle shade that is ridiculously easy to apply and blend (there's nothing worse than an orange streak down the side of your face! eek!). Very pigmented and lasts a long time but...of course is very very pricey. I can only afford one a year :(
This is a good and effective scrub without being too harsh. It definitely has a positive effect in terms of spots and leaves your skin hydrated and smooth. But, just look at the price! If you're rolling in it (good for you!) go for it, but there's honestly better (and cheaper) out there. e.g. Clean&Clear Exfoliating Daily Wash.
