Yay, my goodies came! And in good time too- it "only" took 5 days- hurray! :) Anyways I have thoughts and swatches ahead so keep reading!
Ok so I ended up with:
-Goin' Bananas e/s
-Sassy Grass e/s
-Ban This! l/g
-So Bad l/g
...and I already have:
-Sky Blue e/s
-Free to Be e/s
Free to Be is a pinky coral. It was not too long ago released as a perm color, and also released in the Liberty of London collection. It's a very pretty color with this unusual brightness to it. The payoff could be better, but I love this color!! Oh and hai, I totally forgot to take a pic of it!! So sorry- but I did swatch it :)
Overall, the eyeshadows were a slight disappointment. Maybe I'm getting old or maybe I've collected MAC for too long, but a teeny more effort could have been put in to the selection or creation of these eyeshadows. I would just die if they were as smooth or pigmented as Sugarpill! But I do like Sassy Grass, Aqua and Free to Be! Sassy Grass is really an unusual color, so definitely pick it up if you can!
As you may know, the Dare-to-Wear glosses are a new formula that promises to deliver high impact color while lasting forever on the lips. I have to say this is very accurate! Of the two glosses I got, I couldn't believe how smoothly and easily they applied; the color is bright and vibrant; and the doe-foot applicators work wonders for the application process. I bought only 2 to start, but have already put in an order for 2 more!!
^^Ban This! is a deep berry purple. It even has a hint of blue duochrome. I just cannot believe how easily this color applied- it is so incredibly smooth in just one stroke! And they feel really smooth on the lips. They do last longer than the normal gloss, but I wouldn't say that they're like incredibly long-lasting or anything. I will say, that I got 3 compliments in the span of 5 minutes today- everyone said my "lipstick" looked good and in the sun it was very sparkly!

I am waiting for Dare to Dare and Wind me Up to arrive, so I will update you on those!!
Overall, the glosses are a huge win for me. The tubes are so chic and sophisticated- I'm kinda thinking of never buying a regular lipglass ever again!!
They definitely need to re-promote these in the future, and have a slew of colors and finishes- because honestly, with the ease in which this applied, I can see these being my choice over lipsticks! So much less fuss, ya know?
