I really like the fun pink, purple and coral shades of the lipglass, and the creamy lipsticks are great. I've been wearing Sweet Experience a lot and will be for sometime to come. It is the prettiest medium pink shade with a coral/yellow undertone to it. It looked great on my very pale skin and just as good with a faux tan too. I've been testing a self-tanner and I still wore Sweet Experience and it took a bit of a brighter hue.
Pure Silliness is a very pretty creamy lighter purple shade that looks great on me too.
The Casual Color pots are interesting and if you like a pop of color of your cheeks, give them a try. I'd pass on the Pigments and Chromagraphic Pencils; I honestly don't know how I could make those work for everyday. If you are artistic or have the need, then let me know how you would use them.
