No just getting the one kit.
The next one will be the change in color.

I also saw that my Last original kit is due to ship (10/4) when the second kit of this one we just ordered ships!

I think I will see if I can move the date up of the first kit to September so I can spread them out!!

I LOVE the plum from that first kit.
I also love the green in the recent kit.
I have ordered a couple of the plums off ebay, but now the prices have gone up!

I can't decide whether I like the plum eyeliner from the first kit. I have hazel eyes, so I think for me it would be better if it was more on the purple side. This one is more on the red side which does not really compliment me.

The eyeliner itself I like. It smudges easy, then stays put. The second one in green....

I have brown eyes and both seem to work for me. I agree though Emmaline; I would love more of a purple also - I think the plum in that duo was more purple based on the demo yesterday!

I know what you mean about the plum eyeliner. Sometimes I don't think it really matches the shadow but it looks good with it when I wear it. I've got blue eyes.

I also discovered the liner looks wonderful with my BE matte Meet the Browns shadows.

I will be very surprised if I like the shadow in the new kit; it looks pretty shimmery to me. The color is nice though & different, lighter than most shadows s I am hoping I can wear it.

I need an everyday lip color with a bit more color than the lip balms I'm using right now so I hope the one in the kit is just what I need.

Unless they decide to park it somewhere just to annoy me I should get my new kit tomorrow!

Actually, they have enough time to get it here today but I know that is not gonna happen!

Indiana???

I have realized there is a warehouse a few hours from here & lots of things I order ship from there so I get things pretty quickly.

Homemade tinted moisturizer!

I was going to ask why you gave it to her. lol...

I have to admit I like BE Flawless Definition better than LCL but I use both. I think I have 2 unopened BE mascaras from the AD TSV I got last year.

I suppose I should open this box...

*rips open box & pulls out bag wrapped in popcorn*



Oooh, the organizer bag is nice!

The Maracuja Oil is in a different bottle. We get 2 ML more than the last bottle!

The Bronzer is shimmery but not too dark. I wonder how it'll look on...

The Peaceful Blush is shimmery but a pretty color.

The LCL Mascara is in a different container, rather, it has a case over the case. Unnecessary, but interesting & I will probably break it trying to dissect it...

I can't get the shadow open. Teeny container. ...FINALLY. Pretty color but barely visible on the back of my hand. Most likely more shimmery than I want to wear on my eyes but we'll have to wait till tomorrow to find out for sure.

The brushes look nice. Probably won't use the blush one - it is pretty flat & I like my round BE ones.

The Medium Concealer is a bit more golden than my medium IT Bye Bye Undereye. I think it might be a better color for me than BBU.

The smolderEYES Liner is beautiful! Can't wait to play with it!

Don't think I like the LipSurgence. Lots of shimmer & I'm not sure the color is good for me.

Yes, the bronzer is Park Ave Princess & the blush is called Peaceful. It is a light peach shade. All the colors are very pretty. It is presented very well, too. All products neatly tucked into the organizer.

I'll bet yours arrives tomorrow!

I couldn't wait until morning... I tried everything put on clean skin w/no moisturizer or primers. Too lazy to do all that.

I think the concealer is going to be very nice.

The colors are wonderful! I think the SmolderEYES may be better than the other liner. (watches Cindy do a dead faint! )

The shadow is called shimmering taupe but it is a coppery bronze shade to me. Wonderful shade, I have it very light on one eye & heavy & dramatic on the other. The instructions are poor with this kit (no pics) but it does say the shadow can be layered under other shadows. As pretty as it is there is more shimmer than I like for myself but maybe it will look good under other shadows...? Need to play...

The blush is pretty, not too much shimmer.

The bronzer is beautiful. I used it to highlight on my nose & cheekbones & it is subtle & natural looking.

I'm not sure about the LipSurgence... It is peachy & I haven't worn a peach shade on my lips in years. It might just be that I'm not used to it. The shimmer is borderline. No big chunks of glitter, thank goodness, the word that comes to mind is iridescent but it doesn't change colors. I really never expect to like the lip colors so this is the least important item in the kit.

I think this is a keeper.

Of course, I have horrible lighting in my apartment so I may have a completely different opinion in the light of day!

Oh YAY Deb!
I can't wait to try it all.

I will see how this liner compares to the other.....
Supposed to get mine tomorrow!

I always have to check the name of the mascara, too.

You're going to love this. Really.

Why do they flavor lip color? It just makes us lick it off... There is a very slight minty taste to this.

Today is my kit day!

Deb - I wondered that about flavored lips too!
I am anxious to get this kit!

Oh wanted to mention the packaging for the mascara? DD bought some at Ulta, and that is how it comes in the store........

Yep - you were right wondering why I gave it away too...........not anymore!

I can't wait to hear how you like it!

I wore it all today except for the mascara & M Oil. I put a little shadow at the inner corner of my eyes & used BE Wearable Dark Brown (matte) from Meet the Browns on the rest of my lid & Urban Decay ABC Gum (flesh-tone matte) under my brow. and the liner... It looks nice.

I am not happy w/the concealer today but I may still be using too much.

The blush & bronzer are nice. Don't care for the blush brush though.

OMG!
I used every product and love it all!
I am not usually a fan of creme eyeshadow's but love this one.
Love the eyeliner as well......
Used the bronzer after foundation and my highlighter from elf and really liked the look.
Topped it with the blush and it's a good color for me as well!
I really like the highlighter and am glad I switched to medium, but the light will work for now....very creamy and good coverage.
I did like the lipsurgence too - I have been doing a lighter lip and I think it makes me look younger - - so will definitely use it.

The blush brush - yep same one from the other kit, so was disappointed, but ok with it - might give it to one of DD's.....really like the eyeshadow brush though....

And finally a makeup bag that's not just a big pouch!!!

I am in love and glad I got the AD!!!

I'm glad you like it!

I don't like the concealer. I'll keep trying to see if I can get it to work but, if not, I am not sure it is worth keeping the kit.

I tried this kit for the first time yesterday. I think I put on too much concealer, and it creased immediately. I took some off and it seemed to stay put the rest of the day.

Love, love, LOVE the Lipsurgence! I thought it made my lips look great! I'm so used to Buxoms, because my lips dry out, but this did not dry them out.

The blush is yet another great color. How can they all look so similar, yet look different on?

Today I have more time to play with the rest...

Emmaline; I so agree about the blushes! They all look so similar and yet create a different look! And they stay put on me ALL.DAY.

I didn't use much of the concealer, and found that little bit, went a long way.....

I really do love that eyeshadow and I have never been a fan of creme eyeshadow.

Anxious to hear what you think!

Well.....the concealer is still creasing on me! I'm using the tiniest amount with no moisturizer at all underneath.

I do like the creme shadow, and I don't care for other brands. Yes it is less taupe and more bronze...

The smolder eyes I like, but my eyes smart afterwards. I'll have to try it again in case I got too much on the inner lid...

I can't decide if it's worth keeping for the blush, Lipsurgence, creme shadow and Park Ave Bronzer. I guess now that I listed them all out I just answered my own question....

I am going to try the concealer one more time - today. The concealer will be a deal-breaker for me if it creases.

I like the bronzer but it is a sample size & even if it were full size it would not justify the money. The liner & blush are nice but I really do not need them. They are not so good or different that I have to have them.

I never use liner on my inner rim. I just used this on my upper eyelids.

I love the concealer; I hope you guys end up liking it.
I did use the liner on my rim - and normally don't, loved it, but can't wear it there.....

For the shadow, brushes, concealer, blush, mascara and lips - it is a good value for me.......I will keep it.

Now; to see if I can change the date of my other AD as they both (the second of this kit, the last of the other kit) are going to be released on the same day!

Love the Eyeliner !!!

I just bought the Nars eyeliner (black and green) and love it . The best I've had yet. It lasts all day without re-applying. The brush is the great too. I never could quickly apply the other brands with the short/angled brush.

I've always been an eyeliner girl and have tried drugstore brands in the little pot but they always wore off, sometimes after a few hours. I apply it on upper and lower eyes.
