A Student Must-Have!
I've been using 246 Greed for a month and am totally amazed by the quality. Being a student on a tight budget, I'm excited to learn some stuff dirt cheap but comparable to high-ends exist on the earth! The three matte colors are soft and very pigmented, especially the black. The palette actually does not contain any unique colors, all of them are sort of you-may-already-have colors, but the combination is just right. You can get different looks out of it!
Good for the price
I bought 8 colors for about $2 each. Comparing with OPI, they looked like a great deal and they turned out to be quite satisfactory in general. One drawback I also see like other reviewers, however, is that they are a mixture of his and misses. You really need to do some research before purchasing if you want to avoid getting an insanely sheer one that takes you forever to get the color in the bottle (e.g., #358 Hidden Nature, #46 Real Red, #102 Purple Diamond). Some of them I have (#1 Show Me White, #714 Beautiful Girl, #947 Apple Mint), on the other hand, are decently pigmented. You’d also better use a good topcoat to prevent the color from fading off in a few days.
All-year round bronzer!
The color is peachy-brown gold, but since I'm not super fair, it does not show its color strongly on my skin but just a hint of nice glow. When I want to have the color more visible and long-lasting, 3 or 4 swipes of brush allow me to get the result. To me, it's more like a highlighter than just a bronzer. The packaging is also impressive for the price:)
