While the overall look seems appealing, there were a few things I was disappointed with. The eyeshadow proved to be quite difficult in the blending department as the formula was drier than I anticipated; once the shadow hit my lid, it just wouldn't budge. Colour payoff was minimal as well -- I was really hoping to get the same sort of intensity I got during my swatch session. The eyeshadow palette's only saving grace was the fact it didn't crease.
Ruby Sparkle, however, delivered. A creamy lipstick that has the ability to mimic a gloss, stays put and lasts. The microscopic sparkles reflected light and created a bit of drama, but I didn't feel a bit of grit on my lips. A berry hued optical illusion!
