The entire collection is very appropriately packaged in futuristic and simple white packagings. The eyeliner has a thin brush tip and the cream highlighter comes in a round twist-off jar (much like the Eos lip balms).

The Ultra White Eyeliner features a runny liquid formulation. Although pigmented, it can be quite streaky at the same time. The drying time is fairly long and I found that I needed to apply at least four coats to obtain an opaque line. I found that with four coats, the liner feels a bit crusty on the lids, which made it a bit uncomfortable for wear. White eyeliners are hard to perfect and although this is not the best liquid eyeliner, it most likely is one of the better white eyeliners on the market.
The Iridescent Ball Highlighter is a cream highlighter with a "powder gelee" formulation. In terms of pigmentation and shimmer density, this highlight is quite sheer, with the shimmer particles hardly visible unless you really pack on the product. The formulation doesn't really turn to a powder so it's really the sheen that provides the highlighting properties. The highlight feels lightweight and the product is fairly non-greasy but I found the wear lacking. The shimmer and shine kind of wear off after a couple of hours.

I love the fresh take on the 60's mod trend of this collection. However, the formulation of these two particular products are a bit lacking. The white eyeliner, although most likely one of the best ones on the market, is still quite streaky and runny. The highlighter comes in the cutest spherical packaging but it's a bit too sheer.
