The quality of NARS products are unmatched. Especially when it comes to their pigmentation. We already know they have highly pigmented blushes. Their eye shadows and lipsticks are no different.
|Pandora, Ashes to Ashes, Alhambra, Abyssinia|
Abyssinia-is a beige with a satin finish. Lovely has a highlight.
Alhambra-is a champagne color with a satin finish. Great as an all over lid color.
Ashes to Ashes-is medium taupe color with a hint of purple. Also great as a lid color and a can be used as a crease color as well.
Pandora-is a matte black. Great to deepen the crease or to use as a liner.
|Orgasm, South Beach|
Orgasm-their most famous color, a lovely peachy pink that is supposed to resemble the color you flush during its name sake.
South Beach-a lovely golden bronze. I use it as a cheekbone highlight. Gorgeous!
|Baby Doll, Red Lizard, Manhunt, Fire Down Below|
Baby Doll-a bubble gum pink lip lacquer, similar to a gloss.
Red Lizard-a blue based matte red lipstick.
Manhunt-orange based red satin lipstick
Fire Down Below-bordeaux wine satin lipstick
As with all NARS products, the packaging is matte black. It is very susceptible to dirt and finger prints. I wish they would change that. That is my only gripe with it.
This has instantly become one of my favorite palettes as it is so convenient and will be great for travelling.
It is available at http://www.nars.com/ and Sephora.

Burt's Bees website says this: "This highly-concentrated formula also contains chamomile, cucumber and rosehip extracts, which are known to promote skin renewal and reduce puffiness and swelling. Natural mica diffuses light to minimize the look of fine lines". I don't really suffer from any eye wrinkles so I can not comment on it's effectiveness in that area.
I haven't noticed any reduction in puffiness or swelling. But to be fair, I don't believe there is any product that can reduce my hereditary bags.
The product itself is slightly thin, but not runny. It absorbs quickly on me. I use it both at night and in the morning under my makeup. It does not interfere with my makeup. In fact, I think it helps my concealer glide on better.
It is 98.2% natural but does have a fragrance. I do not find the fragrance to a bother but do find it odd that they decided to put fragrance in the product, since it's supposed to be natural.
Overall, I enjoy this product and I recommend it for those looking for a moisturising eye cream. It retails for $17.99 at drug stores.

The bottle is cute though a little juvenile. I believe this fragrance was marketed to the younger demographic with it's packaging and bright pink color.
I purchased this from Nordstrom when it was exclusively sold there but I have now seen it at Sephora, Ulta, Dillards, & Macy's. It was $60 for the 1.7 fl oz bottle. If you are looking for a good summer fragrance, check this one out.
