Hautelook had a special on Lorac Cosmetics and I immediately knew I wanted this palette and the 3D Lustre Set.  This is a mini palette, which is adorable and great for traveling.  It has a mix of matte and pigmented eye shadows.  
The Lustre set is a great tool for those who love pigment/glitter but without the mess.  This is how it works: after applying your e/s, tap the liquid of your choice over your shadow using your finger or a shader brush and watch how beautiful your application will look.

Milani Baked Blush:
L to R: Red Vino #09 and Corallina #08
No Primer
 I had these blushes for a while now but never got a chance to post it.  It gives a great pigment payoff with bits of glitter particles.  
The blush in 'Corallina' works great for light to medium/tan skin tones.  It's a beautiful coral mix with orange color.  The only downside I have with this blush after applying it I feel the glitter is all over my face.  Therefore, I like to apply it with my fingers and not a brush.  I also LOVE to use this as an eyeshadow.  Another beautiful blush is 'Red Vino.' It's a red/wine color that works great for Tan to Deep skin tones.  The pigment is strong so I like to use MAC 187 (or any fluffy blush) to apply and build the color if it's needed.
