SMASHBOX STYLE ICON KIT



Kit includes:
– Reflection High Shine Lip Gloss
– Lash DNA Mascara (Jet Black)
– Eye Palette (Encore)
– Photo Finish Foundation Primer (Travel Size)
– Blush/Soft Lights Duo (Style/Icon)

Swatches:

Eye Shadows – In these pictures the colours look a tiny bit yellow due to my flash. So just picture the colours a little more deep….especially the deep burgundy (4th colour from the left).

(FYI – I like the pigmentation way better than MAC eye shadows!! )

Eye Shadow palette also comes with a black (gel-based) eye liner and a cute little travel brush (one end is an eye shadow brush and one end is an eye liner brush)….this beats those CHEAP LOOKING spongey applicators that come with other eye shadows!! 🙂

Blush/Soft Lights Duo (Style/Icon)


Tess’ Quick Review:

– Reflection High Shine Lip Gloss

  • Love the texture
  • Not sticky like MAC lip glasses
  • Beautiful pearlescent sheen
  • Looks nice on bare lips (without any liner or lipstick) and gives a nice shine when wearing over liner or lipstick

– Lash DNA Mascara (Jet Black)

  • Double helix brush is a cool concept, but I feel the brush is too big for my small eyes making it a little hard to apply properly
  • Does add volume to my lashes
  • Loves how DARK my lashes look

– Eye Palette (Encore)

(Eye Shadows)

  • Love the colours
  • Very pigmented
  • Extremely versitile – you can create many different colour combos and looks
  • Use this palette both day & night
  • Easy to travel with and it comes with a big size mirror.
  • Like the tiny eye liner and eye shadow brush it’s waaaay better than the crappy sponge applicators that other brands provide!)

(Eye liner)

  • Does not last as long as the MAC’s Blacktrack Fluidline
  • They claim it’s smudgeproof, but I think it still smudges
  • Great to use as a base over your eye lid for a smokey eye look

– Photo Finish Foundation Primer (Travel Size)

  • Favourite primer so far
  • Loves the texture – leaves skin looking smooth and feeling silky
  • Reduces size of large pores (really notice it on my nose)
  • Helps make my foundation last longer throughout the day

– Blush/Soft Lights Duo (Style/Icon)

  • Not super pigmented which creates a natural look
  • It’s buildable so you can add more layers if needed
  • Colours create a soft and natural look
  • Brightens up my face
