Smashbox does one of the best value sets and kits and this one is no exception. It comes with a cream eyeliner kit in "Perfect Frame" with 10 shades, a 4 pan eye shadow palette in "Studio Stash", for doing a classic smokey eye, Full Exposure Mascara in "Jet Black" , a Blush/Softlights duo in "Split/Second" and a Lip Enhancing Gloss in "Smitten", to complete the look! The best part of the kit - everything is full-size.

Eye Shadow Palette in Studio Stash.
Full Exposure Mascara in Jet Black
This is one of the latest launches from Smashbox that claims to deliver longer, fuller lashes. The mascara is probably my least favorite from this kit. I see this as lengthening mascara than a volumizing one. It does clump a little but, the pigment is a deep, rich black.
Lip Enhancing gloss in Smitten
Blush/Softlights Duo in Split/Second.
The blush a gorgeous shade of peachy pink and the highlighter is a shimmery, pale pink. These colors go very well with each other and are very pigmented. The shimmer is very finely milled and both colors blend like a dream. The pan is huge and it will last you a while. The blush/softlights duo is one of my favorite pieces from this kit!
Overall, I would highly recommend this kit since it is a great way to try some of the best products from Smashbox. For $59, I would say its great value for money since everything is full size and when bought separately would retail for a much higher value. The whole kit is very travel friendly and the classy looking makeup bag can hold everything you need while you are on-the-go!
