I want this. I had a Sephora employee try this on me, while my friend had to entertain her one year old who was throwing her first tantrum. The darker, accent shade is ok. But the dove gray/lavender one is STUNNING. I tried it dry since it was first thing in the morning, but think I may purchase and wear wet to a certain best friend's wedding in July. So beautiful.
Despite all of the hype, I really do like Bare Escentuals. The little pots bother me because they take up so much space and time. I also love Benefit, and their eye palette Big Beautiful Eyes is conveniently packaged in one compact. I use that thing all the time, and love the undereye concealer and brushes included.
As with all eye makeup, I rely completely on Urban Decay Primer Potion to keep it from creasing. It also makes the colors more vivid and lasting. I highly recommend it. For $16, it makes all your eye makeup MUCH better.
I really don't need any more makeup. I despise excess. I strive to only purchase what I actually need and use regularly. Hence, the obsession with buying the perfect products. But, if it's for a special occasion...
