Emotion is a light coral with gold shimmer in it. There is an overspray on the bee that comes off after the first couple of uses, but makes those first few uses very shimmery. This blush looks like a very natural flush on fair skin, I would not recommend it for deeper than a light skin tone. It has no fragrance and comes in a refillable compact. It reminds me quite a bit of Tom Ford's Love Lust. If you like the color and sheen of that, you will like this blush.

This lipstick is a matte, neutral black. It's on the drier side, though not as dry as ABH matte lipsticks. It is lightly fragranced of vanilla, but I do not taste it after applying. Make sure your lips are well prepped before putting it on. I find that if I don't put a balm underneath the lipstick, it will tug a lot on my lips while applying it. This lipstick has a tendency to crack on your lip lines, so must be reapplied often.

Use with caution if you have oily, hooded/semi-hooded eyelids. I have oily eyelids and an Asian double eyelid. I have extra skin on my eyelid that generally creases all eye shadow within an hour if I don't use primer. That being said, this shadow creases and separates on my eye very badly after a few hours of wear with primer. I end up with a bald pale green spot and the sparkles in a line where the fold is. The color is beautiful, the application was very easy with a synthetic fluffy brush, and it blended beautifully. It is just very high maintenance as trying to push the pigment back onto the eye would require you to carry the pot in your bag all day.

This colour is fantastic. You can really see all of the shifts when you use this solely on the lid. It applies very smoothly over primer and there isn't any difficulty buffing it out (gently) at the edges. It's a very bold look, and I really think that you only need to use one of their shades for a look or you won't be able to see all of the shifts. The only issue I have with this shadow is that it creases on me very easily. I have oily eyelids, and I use NARS' eye primer which is good for oily lids. It still creases on me in 2-3 hours.

This does not show up on the lips as grey or silver. It is clear with big chunks of glitter. The glitter is sharp and you can feel it cutting you when you press your lips together. There is very little discernible difference between the four shades, so if clear and sparkly gloss appeals to you, one of the shades would be sufficient.

This lip cream is a pretty interesting product. It goes on like a gloss, but is more opaque than most glosses. It's a great neutral shade on my skin tone (fair-light, cool yellow). The only down side is that it has a fairly strong lanolin smell to it. The first ingredient is lanolin, so if you are allergic to it or hate the smell you will not like this lip cream. It is fairly moisturizing.

Myth is a dark green metallic lipstick that looks black from certain angles. It smells faintly of cake batter when you open it, but this dissipates when you apply it. It's very pigmented, it just takes one swipe for maximum effect. It lasts fairly well though eating and drinking, but does come off easily if you eat something greasy. It is a bit drying but this can be solved by placing a thin layer of lip balm on underneath it. I love dark green lipsticks and this is one of the best ones.

I really like how this mascara performs, but it is extremely irritating on sensitive eyes. I get burning and itching a few minutes after application. I tried it out for a couple of days to be sure, and it looks great if you can ignore red puffy irritated eyes. If you're not sensitive, this mascara goes on easily and doesn't clump up. My lashes don't curl very well, but this mascara does imbue a curl.

I never reach for this, even though I love green eyeshadow. It's so sheer the shades almost look transparent on skin. If applied without primer, it wipes away if you try to apply more layers to build up pigment. With primer, it are still pretty washed out. They also have some ingredient that makes my eyes itch. It's also very small, 5 shades crammed into something about the size of one of the Charlotte Tilbury quads. Some of the space is taken up by the sponge applicator that is included. It's a very sad set of eyeshadow and a poor value.

The colour on Bond is beautiful, but it is very patchy and rubs off when you press your lips together. The tube is shaped like a pill and does not stand up, which leads to it rolling everywhere. It has a light vanilla scent that dissipates when you put it on.
