I used it pretty much as directed. I used the brow highlight color as an inner eye highlight as well. I also used elf's black cream liner and MUFE mascara. I think the lip color is some mixture of OCC lip tars. I have four of these trios, and this is by far my favorite. It was much more pigmented and easier to apply than Cool as a Cucumber and I'm Feeling Retro (which I've also tried and and will post photos of soon).
