I barely remember anything of the Smurfs from my childhood except that I had a blue Smurf bag which previously belonged to a cousin. But somehow when I saw the Muse's post on Too Faced's Smurfette collection, I just had to have it...
I ordered these before Christmas and they finally arrived Friday. The collection consists of two glitter liners, 1 lip gloss, 1 eyeshadow quad, and 1 highlighting powder:
So Smurfy Eyeshadow Palette
I love the illustrations inside of the palette :D
The blue and pink shades are are pigmented and easy to blend. The finish is similar to MAC's Veluxe Pearl shadows - they have a sheen so they're not matte nor shimmery. The remaining two shades are super glittery with poorer colour payoff. The glitter also falls off easily so I doubt I will ever use those two colours.
So Smurfy Illumination Face Powder
I noticed from the tester in-store that the colours will rub off with repeated use so I don't think I will be using it much to preserve the design.
Smurfy Eyed Liquid Liners in Feelin' Smurfy (opalescent) and Smurf You (blue)
I like how the caps are metallic Smurf blue with the outline of Smurfette. That is exactly how MAC should have done the Fafi collection last year instead of using those cheap shrink wrap stickers...

Mood Swing Emotionally Activated Lip Gloss
I think the design on the tube is so cute :)
The side of the box illustrates the various shades it can change to. I don't think that will actually change according to your mood but it will probably just look different on each person.
Swatch of lipgloss when freshly applied. Its blue at first but the area closest to my skin is starting to turn pink. The texture is a bit sticky and it does have a sweet scent, so beware if you don't like sticky/strong smelling glosses.

I had never tried Too Faced before this, but except for the two glitter eyeshadows these products seem quite decent so far. Anyway, this is probably the first time I've ever bought an entire collection...so its a good thing I'm going to be on a budget for 2009.
Just for fun...here's the Smurfs episode with the Smurfette:
