A214924 - smashbox Red Carpet Radiance Palette & 2 Brushes
Love this even on fair skin.
I didn't think I could wear peach. I have been using the peaches on the cheekbone and the C around my eye. I am using the pinks on the apple of my cheeks. This is how it was demoed.I use a light hand....very pretly.
Blush great, packaging not great
The lid on mine came broken, I didn't send it back because I figured I could deal with it. The colors are nice especially the apricot, the pink is VERY pink so a little goes a long way.Usually I have to put a setting powder over these blushes to blend out the color a little. Brushes were a good bonus, almost made up for the broken lid.
WONDERFUL COLORS FOR ME
I am a fair skinned brunette, and the colors give my cheeks such a nice radiance. I don't find them to dark at all. I brush the highlight on the outside of my cheek bones and to the temple. The brush gives me perfect application on apple of my cheeks and dusting of highlight. The other day somone said your skin is so beautiful, you have such a warm wonderful glow about you, thanks Smashbox!!
Colors are garish
I had high hopes for this palette, especially for travel, but the colors are awful. The peachy ones are too orange, and the pink/coral is vivid enough for the stage. The shiny ones are very glittery. Brushes are teeny. Probably the worst Smashbox item I've ever seen.
Subtle illuminating Awesomeness
When I received this item I had to think for a second, lol.... it's an amazing blush with shimmering highlighter set, it's sophisticated, subtle and you get two mini brushes. SmashBox brushes are made from Ponyhair, they are, luscious, soft and distribute evenly. It you want a little sparkle without looking ike you've been playing with kindergarten glitter and have that warm glow this product is amazing!!
I'm so glad that I finally decided to purchase this set after initially hesitating. The colors are pretty and although the brushes are small they are of good quality. The blushes do not look powdery--they give off a pretty glow unlike any other blush that I own. A very light hand is only needed to give you a pretty rosy or peachy glow.
Not what I expected . . .
Viewing this item on the t.v. the colors looked beautiful and very spring like but when this showed up yesterday it was nothing but a big disappoint. The main peach color was orange not peachy and the shimmer version of this color was pale and a bit dirty looking when I tried it on. The pink reminded me of something you might have seen in the 60's . . . it was more cartoonish and none of these colors did anything for me at all. They looked terrible on my skin. I am a fair to med skin tone with blonde hair and blue eyes. I have other blushes in versions of these colors that work a lot better. I thought the brushes were nice but not nice enough to keep this item. I didn't try the soft light since I knew this was going back which it did today. Have several items from Smashbox that I like a lot but this missed the mark for me big time.
I just received this!! I love the colors!! I am a fair skin tone with dark hair and these colors work for me!! I can use a heavy hand and it stills work and doesn't look fake!! The only bad thing about the kit is the brushes, they are a cheap version of their regular size brushes!
Soft, subtle glow
These shades are excellent - especially if you are a redhead, or have warm skin tones.. Full-on pink is not good for me, but the two apricot shades are very flattering. The golden radiance powder is also flattering - pearl shades are too white and ghostly for me. Try this. A little goes a long way. Use a light touch, and you'll be pleased.
bright and missing a brush
I LOVE smashbox but this is going back. I only received the fan brush for one. And ALL the colors were very bright, even with a light hand they were very Dynasty Tropical. And they had a bit too much shimmer in it for me. I had medium tan skin and this didn't work.
BOUGHT IT-GOT IT-LOVE IT!
Brushes alone worth price of admission! Know how it is when you don't FEEL like using the same color each and every day; or when your skin just doesn't look the same shade today; no worry, play and you look great. Love the highlighter; but still can't give over the brushes, I have LOADS of smashbox brushes, they are great.
