I'm not huge on lip products in general, but I have to wear lipstick for work a lot. Usually I just use drugstore brands, but I love UD's eye products and I was excited to try out the lipstick samples that came with my order. My thoughts:
Rush- This is the first one I tried and the only one I will likely be purchasing. The color is true to the photo and looks great on me. Stayed on for about an hour with lots of eating and drinking after it set, although this was without any primers/lip balm/etc.
Streak- Definitely not my color, but definitely a coral pink. I'm not too sure about the longevity of this one because I took it off soon afterward, but the texture was similar to Rush, so maybe the staying power is as well? Freshly applied, it settled into my lines rather than on my lips themselves, so that didn't help Streak's case either.
69- My goodness is this BRIGHT. I don't think I've ever had lip product with this much intense pigment before, but it was certainly fun! It seemed a bit more tacky than the other shades freshly applied and dried down much more quickly. Once dry though, it didn't budge or get on the white mug I was drinking from. I took this off after 3+ hours, but it looked fabulous up until that point. Based on how hard it was to get off completely, it would probably be great for a full workday. 69 is also a very pink-toned red, good for showing off those pearly whites.
Liar- Fairly close in color, texture and longevity to Rush, but slightly browner/more orange. This is another shade I would consider purchasing if it weren't so similar to Rush. I would recommend getting Liar if you're not sure what lipstick will look good on you and you just want to improve your natural color.
As a final note, I found that once the lipsticks had set, they lost 90% or more of any creaminess/moisturizing feeling. This is true for all four shades that I sampled and was my biggest disappointment. Perhaps applying a lip balm first would solve this problem, but I was hoping nice lipsticks like these wouldn't need any additional moisture like the drugstore brands do! Anyway, I think these are definitely worth a try.
Pros good color selection, creamy at first
Cons a bit drying, poor longevity on some shades
Yes, I recommend this product.

I had wanted this palette for awhile and when I finally saw it online (and on sale!), I jumped to get it. After using it for several months I have made the following observations:
-As a brown-eyed person, I feel that this palette is a bit better suited to those with blue eyes due to the number of blue-based shades. I rarely used Haight and Money when I had brown hair because they tended to look odd with all the brown. However, I found Haight did work well with cobalt blue hair, but Money was still a no-go. :(
-While I do love the colors Wreckage, Spotlight, and Limelight, I find them difficult to wear and apply due to the amount of fallout. It's a shame because I'd love to wear these over the 24/7 Eyeshadow Pencils in Rehab, Juju and Lit to increase their longevity, but it's not worth a glittery under-eye to jaw. As a side note, I have not had this problem with the glitter in Gunmetal.
-One of my favorite shades from this palette is Infamous. A blue-based pink that is a bit less intense than Woodstock, it is usable as a liner because it won't read as "eye-infection" like some redder pinks can. It also blends beautifully with Rockstar and matches my berry/hot pink hair perfectly!
Overall, this is a decent palette and I love the quality and longevity of the shadows. I can't argue with silky smooth application and 24-hour+ wear!
Pros Good Value, High Quality, Blendable, Long Lasting
Cons too much fallout in some shades, not versatile for all eye colors
Yes, I recommend this product.

Big and blendable, this 2-in-1 waterproof 24/7 shadow pencil keeps going as long as you do. Our next generation of famous 24/7 pencils can be used as eyeshadow, eyeliner, or both!

I have very oily lids, to the point where I absolutely cannot wear cream shadow and MUST use a primer with powder shadows if I don't want them creasing in an hour. So I was a bit worried that these pencils would crease on me even with primer because of their creamy texture. However, to my surprise they stayed on all day and night with and WITHOUT primer. Needless to say, I was overjoyed an have worn at least one of the colors I got in the set (Sin, Rehab, Juju, Delinquent, and Clash) everyday since I got them in December! I also love not having fuss with brushes. On busy mornings, I can just draw it on, smudge with my fingers and go!
My only complaint is about the color selection. I would love to see Juju as a permanent color, as well as a pink-toned pencil perhaps in a color similar to Scratch and maybe a deep blue. Overall, I really love these pencils and highly recommed that you buy at least one to try!
Pros stays on without primer, no need to fuss with brushes
Cons juju not permanent, incomplete color selection
Yes, I recommend this product.

colors are matte or shimmer?

Which of the colors in the palette are shimmer and which are matte?
Rockstar, Skimp, Infamous, Haight, Money, and Mushroom all have shimmer without any glitter. Gunmetal does have a touch of glitter, but a smaller amount/falls out less than Wreckage, Spotlight, or Limelight.
