I disliked the applicator very much. It poked and prodded my lips with its sharp point. I did, however, find that I could bend it and fan the brush applicator out, but without knowing that you have to do that, you end up poking and prodding your lips. The colors are beautiful, moisturizing and have a minty scent similar to the Tarte Insurgence Lip Tints.
L-R: Cannes, Nice, and Paris
On the lips/face (using the bottom right palette with snow angels in the Parc, navigating the Metro, midnight stroll, liaison at the Louvre and Intrigue Amazonian Blush and the mascara) :
Cannes, described as a light pink:
Nice, a nude mauve, was my absolute favorite! This shade flattered my skintone:
Paris, a raspberry, is also quite flattering:
Then, we have the Deluxe Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara, a mascara I give an A+. This mascara gives you full color, is soft and moisturizing on the lashes, does not flake, and lasts throughout the day without wear. It was also easy to remove, which makes me super thrilled. And, it makes your lashes really stand out! I am wearing the mascara in all the pictures above.
Last but not least, the Portable collector’s compact. This compact is super gorgeous! I was so excited to add this to my collection.
Seen inside the compact is the bottom right piece of the palette that I used on the face look seen in all the images.

Overall, I was quite impressed with this palette. Having only experienced a Tarte Insurgence Matte Lip Tint and using it completely up, I must say I do enjoy the brand, and I especially liked the lip glosses. My only complaint was the applicator. I wish it was softer and easier to use. The eyeshadows are soft and they are pigmented enough to use alone without a primer (which is how I used them above on my eyes). The mascara stole the show for me, and I really love this mascara! I will be using this on days I want my eyes to stand out. The blushes are showstoppers, and Intrigue (the one I’m wearing in the photos) is especially my favorite! And, what can I say about the compact except I’m so in love with its perfection!
For $48.00, this palette is an amazing deal! This would make an exceptional gift under the Christmas Tree, and even stocking stuffers, if you decide to gift a piece of the palette in the compact along with a lipgloss or a mascara.
What do you think? Does this make YOUR wishlist or will you be gifting it to someone you know who loves makeup?
