Thoughts on Bag: The tinted balm you need chapstick first since its on the drying side. I don't see myself using the leave in conditioner since I have oily hair. I look forward to trying out the moisturizer. It says its gentle enough for sensitive skin (which i have) and my face has been drier lately. The scrub doesn't have the greatest smell but i'll probably use it as a foot scrub. I like the color of the smooth shadow but don't know if i will wear it since most warm colors don't look good on me.

Thoughts on Bag: I love my UD Lipstick Sample!! Such a pretty red. I hear the michael todd pumpkin mask is awesome, so can't wait to try it out. I love trying out new mascara, and will try this one out once i finish my mascara im using. I don't really see myself using the micabeauty bronze shade so I will probably give that to a friend. I also thought the np color was one of the ugliest colors i've ever seen. I'm not into tomato color.. Overall this was a good mix of products. Im happy with what I got!!
