Look how pretty! They come in a total of 4 different colours.

Just look at it... BEAUTIFUL!
Anyhoos, there are 12 colours in this palette, all neutrals, all soft and buttery and so brilliantly pigmented. And for £32 from Debenhams.com you cant go wrong! That worked out to just £2.66 per shadow! Brilliant value if you ask me!
As with most of the other UD palettes, this comes with the usual mini primer potion and also a double ended pencil in Zero and Whisky. These are brilliantly soft and well pigmented and last about 6 hours on my eyes.
I understand that the US customers are getting a blending brush instead of the double ended pencil due to the demand, but there has been an increase in price because of it.
Would I buy again... Hell YES!
Value for money... 5/5
The assistant who helped me was so nice! He had me try the Photo Finish Bronzing foundation primer (which I will review another day) and the O-Glow/Gloss set. I was amazed at how brilliant these products are!
Smashbox say...Intuitive cheek colour with Goji berry C Complex. Experience instant chemistry as this silky gel transforms from clear to the shade you blush naturally. O-Glow is packed with goji berry, Vit C, Ginko Biloba and Pomegranate seed oil for anti oxidant protection along with revitalizing marine botanics. Apply to cheeks with fingertips and blend.
I say... I LOVE this product. I am not a big fan of gel blushes, but this is so smooth and simple to use and blends perfectly. On me it goes a bright bubblegum pink shade and just blended on the apples of my cheeks gives them a lovely pink glow.
Now onto the O-Gloss
Smashbox say...Intuitive lipgloss with Goji Berry C Complex. Get a shiny pink pout all your own! This intuitive gloss transforms from clear into your own custom shade of pink. the innovative formula has goji berry c complex, ginko biloba, and pomegranate for antioxidant protection, along with revitalising marine botanics and moisturising avocado oil for luminous shine.
I say... This stuff is AMAZING. Its soft, smooth and moisturising. Not at all sticky and the colour (on me) is a shade or 2 pinker than my own colour. Because its a gloss I find that it doesn't last all that long, but I just reapply, which doesn't bother me in the slightest.

Will I buy again... YES
Final score...Firm 5/5 from me

This stuff is so strange... Brilliant, but strange. In the pot it looks like a thick white cream, but when you touch it its completely different, almost like a thick water, if that makes any sense what so ever.
When you put it on its cooling, like rubbing that thick cool water on your face, but when it starts to soak in its super moisturising and creamy. Amazing!
Now, what can be said about this stuff apart from its lovely. This, just like the others is brilliant. Its like a very thick, moisturising cream. All I do is put a dot on the outer corner of each eye and a few dots round my mouth and pat it around. This seems to have worked a treat on the fine lines round my mouth and eye area, not that I had many to begin with, but what I did have seem to have gone! Yahoo!
Then there is the Peel. I haven't had a chance to try these yet, but they say that you should use it first before cleansing and using the rest.
So, full verdict... EFFING BRILLIANT
Would I purchase?... HELL YES
A Sexy 5/5 from me. ;o)
