Perfect product.  Finely milled and gorgeous bronze eye shadow.

Kevyn Aucoin The Guardian Angel Cream Highlighter Review & Swatches

Flawless.  Subtle though, not everyone will see the effect.

A cool pink highlighter, like a sheen.  Barely there.  Similar to Pat McGrath, but cooler and longer wearing (PM Balm).

Pat McGrath Nude balm, cream highlight and the KA.

1 By Terry Sun Designer Palette 1 Tan & Flash Cruise Review

Lovely formula.  These shades don't work as well for me as palette 2 did.
A beautiful warm pink
Vivid coral
Cool violet pink

Soft champagne highlight
Warm brown based bronze
Peach shimmer gorgeous highlight or eyeshadow (love)

Besame Lipstick in Victory Red and Portrait Pink Review and Swatches

I adore Portrait Pink.  A soft lovely rosebud look.  Victory Red is also lovely.  A cool, medium, blue based red that isn't bright at all, but still eye catching.  Not happy at the price hike (for charity, and the pin; but Besame gets the tax deduction but the purchasers pay for the donation).

This palette creates a sun kissed glow, truly.  A soft sheen and deeply pigmented.

Half matte and half shimmer.

2:  peach pink duochrome shift; gold shift at times
3:  micro-shimmer champagne; silver shift in the light at times
4:  satin matte peachy beige/bone
5:  satin matte; deep peach with a hint of brown
6:  bronze-brown, widely spaced touches of shimmer; golden brown with bronze

Dolce & Gabbana Orange and Cyclamen Classic Cream Lipstick Review and Swatches

Orange: stunning, vivid true medium orange with a hint of flamingo

Cyclamen: vivid medium blue based pink with a breath of purple...but not close to fuchsia

Amazing formula with memorable and distinctive shades.  Creamy, opaque with a little sheen.

These have a gorgeous sheen.

Urban Decay Alice and Mad Hatter Lipstick Review and Swatches

Pretty.  Mad Hatter is actually lovely and unusual.  Some shade shifts and duochrome.  But Alice is light...

Stunning, and more pigmented on than in the pan.

Perfect palette.

Urban Decay Matte Lipstick Sale Haul

Creamy mattes, not full mattes.  I really like some of these shades.  They wear about 2 hours on me for the most part and often have a rosebud sort of look.
Stark Naked: a simple slightly peach pink nude
Backtalk: a pinker and slightly deeper Stark Naked.
1993: a rose brown on me.  I go back and forth on this one.
Bittersweet; a classic pink with a lavender twist.  Love this one.
After Dark: not matte at all.  A purple fucshia with shimmer/shift.
Blackmail: deep blackened plum.  A difficult shade to apply and wear evenly.
