Philosphy Makeup Haul (from Big Lots)!!

I heard about Big Lots getting Philosophy makeup in from Nouveau Cheap's blog post last Thursday.  Of course, I had to check it out.  I think I went on Friday and found nothing.  Then I went back to the same post later and more comments had been left, one of which stated that (from a manager's mouth) the display should be going up on Monday, some had just done it early.  So, I went back Monday since I would be driving by after picking up the dry cleaning.  And it was there!!
This was the display (minus the bottom row of 1 item)

I didn't get any of the liquid or cream products (except one highlighter thing), and as of right now, there was only one color choice for each item that was there.  I don't know if there were more choices earlier in the day or if there will be more added in the future.

Lots of pictures & collages coming up with what I got:


 
The Supernatural Instant Sunshine Natural Mineral Bronzer
It looks kind of orange/red in the container...I'm hoping I can get it to look right on the skin. 
On a side note, the cardboard packaging might have potential as an organizer for products since it's pretty sturdy.

 The Color of Grace Amazing Grace Shimmering Face Powder
A nice somewhat sparkly sheer baby-pink highlighter

 Divine Illumination Love at First Light Ageless Skin Luminizer
The one cream product that I purchased...hopefully it works with my oily skin.

 The Supernatural You Make Me Blush Mineral Blush Duo in 04 Sunny (bronzer side) and Bright
The "bright" looks like a hot pink, but it is pretty sheer so I think I can make it look nice without being overdone.

The Supernatural Coloring Book for Eyes, Lips, & Cheeks
(The top right and bottom left pics are most color accurate)
The left column contains 2 lip glosses (1 is sparkly) and 2 shadows
The right column contains 1 cream blush (top pan) and 2 powder blushes (the middle pan looks like it could try to be a bronzer)
 (back of the box of the Coloring book)

The Supernatural Windows to the Soul eye shadow palette
Plum Delicious (name of the palette)
(L. to R.) Sweet Vanilla, Cloudberry, Plum Delicious (has some sparkle), 
and Blackberry (deep, dark matte brown) 
Also comes with a double ended brush

The Color of Grace Eyelighting Shadow Duo in 01 Heaven/Earth
Heaven is on the left; Earth on the right

All of the products were $3 each.

I'm looking forward to trying everything out.  

Have you tried Philosophy makeup and if so, did you like it?
