From this collection, I only picked up three items - 2 lipsticks and one paint pot. 
I am a sucker for paint pots, but I've tried Let's Skate and Fancy Frosting was too frosty for me. So I picked up Eclair, but Mooncake was very promising. These are the new pro longwear formula, which to be honest I have never had an issue with the length of time my current paint pots last. I use Painterly daily with no creasing or fading. Eclair is a chocolate brown with a gold shimmer and is so creamy, but lasts so long!
Price: $18.50


I really liked 3 of the 4 lipsticks in the collection, however the really dark one is just not me - so I only picked up two. I chose Lavender Whip and Pure Decoration. I am loving both of these colors, they are both cremesheen finish, which I love, and their colors are so perfect. Lavender Whip is nothing like anything I own, and not so lilac like the Viva Glam Nicki 2 - it is a little more pink based. Pure Decoration is similar to other peach or nude lipsticks, but not - if that makes any sense. I love both and I am pretty sure Lavender Whip will be my spring/summer color.
Price: $15.00
