A16944 - smashbox Faces of Fashion 10 pc. Color Collection
I really liked this kit. I use everything except the lip stick and lip gloss. I would really like Pink and/or Red Lipstick or gloss. WHY IS EVERYTHING BROWN. And please Holly, Love the eyeliner but please make it Waterproof so it will stay on Because I Love it! I really did Love this Kit and I USE IT EVERYDAY. Primer, so soft! Love it! Blush, Just like Malley's Shimmer,Shape and Glow. Love it! Eyeshadow is great and brushes are fantastic.
I love this kit. I wanted to try Smashbox, and am glad that I did. The eyeshadows are perfect. I do like the eyeliner, it just took a bit of practice. I love the lip gloss. My is gritty, but I thought it was just gold specs. The color is the perfect touch for daytime eyes or dramatic eyes. Glad I did autoship--can't wait for the next kit.
Lip gloss/lipstick too orange for my complexion
Bought this on auto delivery. The only items that I wasn't satisfied with were the lip gloss, lipstick and eye shadow. I love the Photo Finish Foundation Primer, but HATE the dispenser. I hope that they change the colors in the next shipment and create a new type of dispenser. All in all, the price is still a bargain, and you can give the pieces that you don't care for to a friend.
Excellent products in this kit. I really like the gloss, and mine is not gritty at all. Keep these quality products coming!....I'm so glad I'm set up with auto-delivery! One request for Smashbox: Please do not put the crayon eyeshadows in kits anymore...they break & crumble (from previous kit). But everything else is great!
Great Value-love it!
I love smashbox kits that I find on QVC. I always wear the smashbox primer under my foundation so this kit is a fabulous value because I would be spending over $30 on just the primer anyway. The shadow is flattering and I like the blush colors. Thank you QVC and smashbox for providing such great value on these kits!
If I don't try I'll never know
I am Makeup Queen so I had to try this collection out. I'm a pretty flashy girl, so when I am feeling a bit more demure the colors in this set are right up my alley. The primer feels so good on my skin and my mineral makeup goes on so smooth, the primer is $36 alone if you buy it separately so the price for the whole set was amazing. The under eye brightener is alright. The host on tv said that the taupe eyebrow tech would match anyones color but that wasn't the case with me. I haven't used the blush yet. The lipstick is not berry it is more of a yam color, but feels nice and the lipgloss is pretty but gritty. The eyeshadows go on smoothly and stay on great! Putty eyeliner is new to me so I am still investigating that, but the colors are nice. I did the autodelivery program, just wish they would switch out the brushes each time maybe do eyeshadow brushes or contour brushes. Can't wait to see what the next line of colors looks like!
This was my first Smashbox purchase...and will be my last. First, I'll say that I did really like the eye shadow...until it started to irritate my eyes - can't wear it anymore. The eyeliner is faded off by the middle of the day. The blush is messy and there is powder from it all over the container. The lip gloss is gritty at first, but after a couple of minutes the grit is gone. Lipstick isn't bad, but either of them last long at all! I wish I could send this set back, but I've had it over 30 days.
I gave the kit 3 stars because I like the colors, especially the blush colors. I like the brow tech, has real staying power. But...the blush and the eyeshadows flake eveywhere. I haven't had this problem with much less expensive makeup products. The lipsitck is okay, it is not as smooth as I expected given the name and description. The gloss is gritty, don't rub your lips together, painful exfoliation. I do like the color, not particulary fund of gritty lips. Primer is okay, like the feel, doesn't make a huge difference under my BE. I believe a small amount of pure olive oil is the best primer. The under eye brightner is okay, I think it works best as a cheek and eyebrow bone highlighter.
i kept watching smashbox demos on qvc and thought about it b4 buying for looong time. what a big disappointment. i can get better makeup at the local dollar store then this stuff. sorry qvc but this is a big dud for me. so back it went
Overall, the best set I've bought from Smashbox. I've sent several sets back, usually because I only like one or two items. Not paying over $60 for one item. PRIMER - Not a fan. Don't think it helps keep my makeup on any longer and feels slick, almost greasy. BRIGHTENER - I like the ease of use, though it doesn't make a big difference. LINERS - Nice. I like the pearl a lot and am glad to have more of it. We all have lots of brown liner so I don't need a large amount but will be glad the pearl will last a long time. Gold is okay. SHADOW is very nice. Not real dark but I don't want to look like I have black eyes anyway. BLUSH is probably my favorite. Very nice colors, so convenient to have them all in one pan. LIPSTICK is fine. I was hoping it was a bit more red since red is the color for the season, but it's wearable. (The red probably wouldn't look as good anyway.) GLOSS is gritty. I like the color and it's very pretty in direct sunlight. It's just gritty and you have to deal with it or it's a waste. BROW TECH is good. Mine came crumbled but QVC sent me another one at no charge. Thanks! Brushes are fine. Would love a shadow brush or blush brush instead of a new brow brush each time. Overall, a very pretty effect with you combine the colors. Not overwhelming - or underwhelming. The brown liner gets darker if you layer it a bit and don't put the gold on top. When you put the gold over the brown like Holly did, it seems to make the brown disappear, though it's pretty. Worth the money and I look forward to the next round since I'm on autodelivery. Thanks!
women of color
you are a woman that is african american(deep skin) this kit is not for
you, the colors will not show up and the lipstick and gloss are to
orange. The colors flake all over your face and the primer is too oily,
i would never buy another product from smash box. Bare Escentuals are
great and they work for all skin shades and i will make this my only
qvc makeup purchase.
I don't regret the purchase
I love Smashbox!! I purchased the 7 piece "fact or fiction" beauty collection several months ago and loved it. When this collection was the TSV I had to have it! I tried it the moment I received it. Thank goodness I also got it on auto delivery. I'm looking forward to receiving the next collection. Thank you QVC and Smashbox!!
