The Wet n Wild MegaGlo Highlighting Powder retails for $5.99US and $6.99CAN for 0.19 oz. /5.4g of product.

You can find Precious Petals and Crown of My Canopy in store here in Canada, but I've only seen them at Rexall and some Walmarts near/in a mall. These ones are permanent because they have taken the time to label them for the Canadian market (aka if you see French it going to be sold up here).

This set was a 3-day flash sale (they still had stock after 2). So it's no longer for sale on Sephora but I wanted to review the lip shade and compare it to other shades on the market and where the colour fall in the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick range as well. Also, it gave me a chance to retry the Saint and Sinner Eau De Perfum now that the brand has relaunched it to see if the formula has changed slightly.

The Natasha Denona Sunset Eyeshadow Palette retail for $129US or $166CAN for 15 x 0.08 oz/ 2.26 g Eyeshadow worth of product at Sephora (Beautylish is $174.23CAN). It's worth noting that the eyeshadows break down to $8.60US and $11.07CAN per pan in this palette.

The Natasha Denona Eyeshadow Palette 5 retail for $48US or $61CAN for 5 x 0.08 oz/ 2.26 g Eyeshadow worth of product which breaks down to $9.60US and $12.20CAN per pan in this palette. So you're saving a $1 roughly per shadow in this 15 pan palette compare the 5 pan shadow palettes. The single shadows retail for $25US to $29US each for the same size eyeshadows so they feel super overpriced as a brand and closure to a higher end luxury brand rather than a makeup industry brands she technically is. But these are made in Italy and you are paying more of the craftsmanship here much like the Viseart palettes made in France.
