Lipsticks
Cozy up is a nice peachy sort of nude on me.  It will most likely look better with a liner but at least its not giving my lips a powdered donut look which most matte nudes tend to do on my dark pigmented lips.  I like it more that MAC's Siss which tends to make me look dead if i don't line my lips and add some gloss.  With Cozy Up even if it will look better with a liner, I won't need to gloss it up to make it look good which is awesome.
Haute Altitude not to be confused as Haute Attitude like I have been doing before I received the lipstick, is a light bluish-neutral pink. It is quite wearable for me and not as stark as MAC's Creme Cup lipstick.  I was hoping that it would be the perfect pink nude for me but unfortunately its not.  Its still a pretty pink and I can wear it with everything.

Blush
Alpine Bronze is a mineralized blush that I am loving.  It gives my face a healthy glow without me looking over done.  This color seems to look orange on a couple of people but as the pictures
below, I compared it to an orange blush so that you can get an idea on how it really does not look orange against my skin.  I also compared it to a peachy-pink blush just to help you guys figure out how the color looks. This is shimmer in it just like all mineralized blushes, but its not overwhelming which is great.
