I love this little kit! The colors are nice and fresh for spring and summer. I like that they are not boring neutrals and will incorporate color into your face without being garish or too much. Add some Balance N' Brighten and some mascara and you have a full face. Considering that the Femme Fatale palette's sell for this much purchased separately, it's like you are getting the other four pieces for free. Did I mention how cute the shadow compact is? This is my first one and I love the lace on the compact. It is so feminine and cute!

Laura Geller Garden Party 5-pc Color Collection
What is it: The perfect collection to get a fresh spring look. The Garden Party Baked Eye Shadow Trio is a palette complete with a double-ended shadow/liner brush. The vibrant shades can be used wet or dry, and the darker shades can be used as an eyeliner. Bronze-N-Brighten is a revolutionary formula of color-corrective pigments and bronzer that's baked to create a beautiful and dewy, yet matte finish. The infused color gives the complexion a hint of bronzed color without any hint of orange. Eye Spackle is a creamy, weightless, flesh-toned formula that's the perfect undercoat for powder shadows. Shine & Shield Lip Gloss in Fresco Gelato is a chocolate berry mocha shade full of the best moisturizers. Not only is it high in natural mineral pigments that give excellent coverage, but it's also high in shine and cushion. I-Care Eyeliner is a smooth, long-wearing, and water-resistant formula. Who is it for: All skin tones and types. Why is it different: This collection has all the right elements to create a fresh, sun-kissed look without appearing overly done. How do I use it: Using the shadow/liner brush, sweep an eye shadow shade over the entire eyelid. Or, identify different shades within the marbleized tablet and apply them with a brush individually on the eyelid and in the crease or outer corner. Using a brush, stroke Bronze-N-Brighten all over your face until you reach the desired coverage. Using either your fingertip or a non-latex sponge, apply a very thin layer of Eye Spackle directly to the entire eye area. Apply eye makeup as usual. Squeeze the lip gloss tube and apply to bare lips. For a fine line, sharpen eyeliner pencil tip and draw a line as close to your upper and/or lower lashes as possible. For a smoky look, make the line a little wider, and feather it out with the smudger. From Laura Geller. Includes:
