A212451 - smashbox FAQ's 7-piece Color Collection
Bought this a few months ago and wanted to try it before writing a review. I've always wanted to try Smashbox, and thought this would be a perfect kit. And it IS!! I was hesistant to use the primer (because I tend to break out) even though i've heard it's great, but i did and it works like MAGIC! It didn't make me break out and my foundation stayed on all day without having to do any touch-ups. The concealer is wonderful, with plenty of coverage but is still lightweight. You only need a little and it goes a long way. The eyeliner is also pretty good. It really is waterproof and i like how it's easy to apply. It does dry and set fast so if you're going to smudge it do it right away. My least favorite piece would be the blush disc thing. I only use it sometimes when i want to add more color than my usual BE blush. It it pretty shimmery. It's hard to deposit one or all the colors on the brush. The eyeshadows work pretty well, but i'm not sure how waterproof it is. The colors are nice and compliment my blue eyes. How can a powder be waterproof? The lip gloss is nothing special. It's kinda tacky and has a weird texture but the pink color in the tube isn't as bright once it's on. Overall for the price this is a great kit, especially to try their products.
I'm glad I ordered this, the eyeshadows are beautiful and the concealor is wonderful, goes on so easy and covers really well (and the brush makes it goof proof) The chubby pencil is great too, my daughter stole that right away ;)
As always, Smashbox is the best!
This kit is an amazing value! There is not one item in the kit that is 'so-so', they are all fantastic! The shadows are beautiful and go on so smooth and are really blendable. The Pro Skin concealer is my favorite of all concealers that Smashbox has made. Just takes a tiny bit and it stays on until you are ready to take it off! The shadow liner is great, and chrome is one of my favorite colors. The lip gloss with the mega applicator, its the BEST! Nice color, fantastic applicator! Definately one of my all-time faves. The primer is another all-time great product, the brush is nice to have included (their brushes are high quality!) and the Soft Lights adds a lit-from-within glow. This kit is full of A+ keepers! Oh, got this on auto delivery and the second kit came yesterday and its full off keepers too!
Great Overall Kit
I purchased this kit several months ago and like all the products it contained. However, I absolutely LOVE the jumbo lip gloss and the color is perfect for me! But alas, I can't seem to find the item sold separately! This always seems to happen when I purchase beauty kits from QVC..I love the fact that you get to sample lots of products for a lower price, but invariably I will fall in love with one particular item and it's never available on its own...very sad!!
I just love this kit, can't wait for the next on to arrive. The shadows stay put and the liner pencil is wonderful. I can't get enough of the lip gloss it is such a beautiful shade of pink. I love Smashbox kits, I am a Smashbox junkie! I'm always recommending their products (especially Halo) to my friends.
Overall a good collection
I like this collection. The lip gloss is a bit goopy and not the most pleasant to wear. Use the concealer sparingly as well as the primer because they go a long way. I love the blush combination, the liner and shadows. Overall a good Smashbox collection that I go to regularly.
One of the BEST kits EVER!
I've been using Smashbox products for a long time and by far, this is one of the best kits they've ever brought to us. I'm stoked that I went on Auto-Delivery for it. =)
The concealer, which I'd been wanting to try, but wasn't ready to purchase separately is really good. It's right up there with Mally's concealer as one of the best I have ever used, which is high praise indeed.
The eye shadow pallette is lovely. These are perfect colors for every day and they blended beautifully with a few BE shadows I took along with this on vacation. Even after hours in the hot summer sun, my shadow looked great at the end of the day.
The product I am totally hooked on from this kit is the Shadow Liner To Go. It is literally one of the ONLY products I can use where eye liner is concerned. It goes on beautifully every single time and stays put. The color is so much nicer than a true black, I'm definitely going to be hunting down a back-up liner when I start running out. Love this stuff.
I wasn't hooked on the lip gloss, but it's still a nice product. The primer is top-notch. Looking forward to the rest of the kits.
I purchased this collection and I have totally become a Smashbox fan. I particularly LOVE the blush. When I wear it everyone comments on my glow. Thanks for this outstanding collection.
I love the primer and the colors in this kit! The gloss looks fab and I 've always liked smashbox brand brushes so its always great when one comes in a kit.
Everything's a winner
If I could give this 6 stars I would. My favorite piece is the shadow liner in chrome, it makes my eyes pop and goes with everything, not harsh like black. Everything in this kit is a winner, usually there's one or two things that are just so-so but not in this this set. I'm so glad I got this as a TSV because I can't wait to see what the next shipment brings.
Smashbox has done it again - I bought this with A-D for a TSV and I am SOOO GLAD I did - what amazing products. I am 55 yrs young and this makeup works for my aging skin. It makes my face pop without making me look like I have makeup on - just the look I am trying to achieve. The eye shadow palette is by far the best I have tried in that it does not cake or leave creases on my eye lids and it lasts all day long. I would buy just the eyeshadow but the whole kit was so worth the purchase price - I have used every single item in it and I love everyone. I can't wait to see what the next kit brings. Thank you Holly!!
Wanted to love it but didn't
I saw this on QVC and made an impulse purchase thinking some new makeup would be a good idea (when isn't it?). I was so excited to try it but was disappointed with some of the products. I did not like the charcoal pencil as it was smudgy and smeary. The eyeshadow was my biggest disappointment as the color was not at all what I expected. It was so light that it didn't even show up. On the flip side, loved the primer. I have that on its own and it is a great product. The concealer covers anything-and I mean anything but you have to use the brush to blend it. The blush was great-loved the color and application. The gloss was wonderful. The gloss was my favorite of all the products. I just couldn't justify spending $70 for a lip gloss.
However, I think teens would like this kit. It seems to be more geared toward the application popular with teens.
