So here so far is my take on things. Again so sorry I was not able to take any pictures or swatch so i can't give very accurate details.
Nocturnal Instincts looks exactly like a mid tone lavender. Upon just looking at it i didn't notice any grey however this could change upon swatching and once applied to the lips. Perhaps the grey tone in it will come out. If this is the color used in the promo pic it doesnt look anything like that in the tube. It looks to be very soft, almost like Lavender Whip lipglass which i believe came out with the Spring Colour Forecast collection.
Night Blooming looks like a deeper Outrageously Fun. It also looks like the lipstick version of Revenge is Sweet. Don't know if that makes any sense lol. Sorry i'm not that great at giving detailed descriptions.
Seductive Intent did not look vivid purple to me. It seems to be a warm purple color. I could be wrong on this and perhaps swatched or on the lips will look different. I just didn't see a vivid purple color when i opened it up and saw it. Nothing like Violetta or even Heroine. Perhaps because these two colors are more of a violet plum. When i first heard the description for Seductive Intent the first colors that came to mind where Violetta and Heroine so i expected to see something relatively close to these but nope...not here. It wasn't something that I saw and thought i NEED this on my team purple. Actually it looks a bit mauve IMO.
Taste Temptations Quad: Beautiful deep dark colors. Perfect for a smokey eye. Navy blue, lilac/lavender, deep, dark purple, and the oh so famour Carbon. This is not something i need in my collection. I feel just by looking (swatching may change this) that i just may have similar enough color to skip this. Just by looking though i have a feeling this is going to have amazing color payoff. I could be wrong and this could be my having high hopes for the beauty's that really want this quad.
Revenge is Sweet: One of my all time favorite lipglasses. I first purchased this with the Venomous Villains Maleficent Collection and fell in love. It's a beautiful pink with violet color. I don't get why on the description it says vivid purple. It's not all out purple...definitely has a pink tone in there. I may post up swatches of this in case anyone who missed out on it the first time is thinking of getting it this time around.
Perky is quite lovely. Just by looking it did remind me a bit of lavender whip lipglass but with shimmer.
I didn't get to open the last lipglass because it was still in the plastic packaging.
Didn't get to see the nail polishes.
And finally the blushes. These are must haves for all of the team purple fiends out there.
Unconventional is going to look perfect on lighter skinned beautys. It may even go well as a highlighter on medium to deeper skinned beautys. Swatches will determine this!
Passionately Tempted: A gorgeous color! This is going to look beautiful on WOC! I have high hopes for this blush and i think this one will give great color payoff. Fingers crossed!
Sorry if my reviews aren't that great but i do hope this at least has helped some of you. I really do wish I could have taken swatches and pictures.
