Despite that this has less visual appeal and excitement than other holiday sets out there, it is a majorly great set. A lot of the other holiday sets you get a lot more products in it and honestly this one looks a little boring in comparison. However, it is nearly 40% off of products that are practical and that you can use nearly every day. 
Eyeliners: 
The black eyeliner in this set was actually the first high-end eyeliner I ever purchased a few years ago, so it has a special place in my heart. The MUFE liners are known for being long lasting and really do hold up quite well. This set has instructions on how to wear a more simple look and a more dramatic look with all these products. The diagram along with corresponding numbers made it super easy to follow.

When I first saw the grey eyeliner I was like big "W", nothing too exciting. But oh boy was I wrong, this deep charcoal grey with a gorgeous shimmery finish is one of the all starts of this set. This pairs beautifully with the pink aqua cream eyeshadow, which is also a fave from this set. 

Aqua Eyes cream shadow in Pink Beige: I have been wearing this shadow daily since I received this. It is such a gorgeous color and I really think this pink color will work well on so many eye colors and skin tones. For green eyes, this shadow along with the grey liner are a perfect pair. It is super easy to use, just dip your finger in the container and apply. You can apply one sweep or add another layer for some more drama. If you add too much product it can look cakey. Creasing was not a problem with this product at all. This did hold up through a nap although was noticeably faded. This has won a spot into my coveted Go To Products list.

Mascara: certainly achieved a dramatic eye look with the Smokey Lash mascara, however, I found that it clumped very easily. I had to use my Tweezerman lash comb to get rid of the clumpies. Other than that, it really did make my lashes super long and full.

HD Powder: Another product MUFE is known for is their HD foundation and HD powder, although I have never tried the powder. (I do love the foundation). This is a very fine white powder which blends in flawlessly and colorlessly into your skin. My skin was noticeably softer and smoother after application. My favorite powder otherwise is Palladio Rice Powder, which with its light tan color, helps me buff my foundation perfectly. I'm not sure if I'm ready to make the change yet. 

This may not be the flashiest of holiday sets out there, but it IS the most practical and you will be saving yourself $39 over the retail price.
