  • Moonstone Haloscope: moisturizing, dewy sheen, easy glide,

I really enjoyed half of the kit. The nail polish had a great brush shape and did dry fast. When I wore it I had minimal chipping. I didn’t think I’d like it so much but I think they could make more shades and I’d be interesting in buying them. The lip gloss was my favorite. I really hope this becomes permanent. It’s very moisturizing. It’s basically clear so you can wear it alone or over a lipstick/liner. I had been meaning to pick up an oil gloss and this set came out at the perfect time. I think it feel kinda similar to Clarins, not as thick or heavy. The gloss def gives a glass like shine and lasted fairly well on the lips (w/ no eating/drinking). The No.1 Pencil is bleh! I don’t wear eyeliner often so I don’t get much use from it. I wore it once to see how it smudged and it smudge a lot! I didn’t think it would move around so much. It didn’t seem to transfer too much with wear. The Haloscope is gorgeous. Hands down the best shade in their line up. It has this soft ethereal glow with a very subtle shift of blue. My biggest con, like with the previous releases, is the coconut oil. Coconut oil is comedogenic! I wish they’d just replace coconut oil with something else.
  • No.1 Pencil: 2.5/5
  • Lip Gloss: 5/5
  • Moonstone Haloscope: 2/5
  • #glossier Nail Polish: 5/5
