"No wonder you're late, why, this watch is exactly 2 days slow." -- Alice in Wonderland

What's The Hatter With You | this is a deep raspberry creme that isn't jelly-like (major points) and doesn't stain! I like how it's also not a muted berry shade. Very wearable and very good for fall.

The I's Have It | I had really high hopes for this one, but the formulation was kind of a downer. Too thin and streaky for my liking -- that said the shade is gorgeous and I love how it's a vibrant robin's egg blue instead of a periwinkle or muted baby blue. Not too icy but still bright.

I'm Gown for Everything | A nice lilac purple leaning more on the pinky red tone rather than a true lavender. I like how it's not too chalky and dries shiny.

Having a Big Head Day | This is a nice bright red creme that does not streak and it not too dark. It's more on the orange side of reds though, but really pretty and bold! Caution: this one stains incredibly fast.

Mad for Madness Sake | This one is a flat fuchsia-raspberry pink creme. I'm sure there have been a lot of dupes, but it's a cute shade for summer regardless.

A Mirror Escape | Umm..... no.... this is self-explanatory. I'm not fond of golds and when they have white particles suspended in them, it just looks clumpy and out of place. I also couldn't get my camera to focus on it since there was so much going on. Not a repeater for me!

Fearlessly Alice | A true Alice in Wonderland kind of shade. I compare this one to Sally Hansen's Blue Me Away or Brisk Blue. In fact, it's kind of in between both of those. Not as flat as Blue Me Away and not as dark as Brisk Blue. A vibrant, but wearable shade!

Oh My Majesty! | This was a sheer pearly white marshmallow with gold undertones. It was a bit streaky and more on the jelly finish, but kind of pretty if you can look past the lines.

What Time Isn't It? | This one is a Special Edition shade that comes in a separate promotional gift set. Now I'm not really a fan of bar glitters, or any suspended glitters in general, but this one was nice in that the grey and silver did go well together and kind of gave it a modernistic vibe. Up close, not so hot, but it's not the worst!
