Smashbox Socialite Kit

Hello!! So....I just went to Shoppers Drug Mart and got this AMAZING kit from Smashbox. I don't own anything from them, but I have tried the photofinish primer...and LOVE it...but it is much too expensive..

ANYWAYS the kit includes:
Blush Bronzer Duo in Cosmopolitan - which reminds me of Nars Orgasm Blush a little, it is a coraly pinky peach...LOVE this color, it has some sheen to it and is STUNNING.... The bronzer is quite light which as i am the PALEST person on the planet..works out great, for those with darker skintones it would serve as a blush perhaps?

Eyeshadow Quad in Socialite - 4 colors that are FAB! a bronzy copper, a sparkiling champagne tan, a dark dirty brown and a frosty white, these are PERFECT for the soft summer smokey look! WOO! the colors are very pigmented and easily blended, but all have some shine/sheen/sparkle to them...just a heads up!

Cream Eyeliner DUO in Caviar/Bronze - LOVE.....ya that pretty much sums it up...just...LOVE....they are great cream eyeliners that you could also use as a base, i swatched the bronze side with the bronzy copper e\s overtop and it was pure decadance....WOO! they are super creamy and smudge, blend and shape easily but dry down so as not to continue to smudge blend and shape...

Photo op Undereye Brightner
- hmmm...well this did brighten under my eyes...and i don't have dark circles so I really did like the "look" it gave me..and I would put money on the fact that it would look fab in a photo...I am going to do a tutorial on this one! BUT my verdict is...if you have dark circles you would for SURE need a concealer underneath and then this on top, so if you could find a something that did both..i would go for it instead..having said that I do like this...so...take what you will from that SUPER unclear review ..haha

Eye Beam Double Ended Brightner
- this is similar to the benefit one...and i really like it, it is perfect for those days what all you got time for is a little hightlighter and mascara...I love the "brow" color and would prolly use it both on my brows and on the inner corner of my eye, my bet is you could use it as a base for e\s too..it is pretty dry so i don't know if it would crease....i will test that theory and get back to you on that...

Lip Enhancing Gloss (true color) in Soiree - I like this too...the smell is odd, maybe its just me, its not to sticky the color is great and it is perfect with the shadows and blushes given..its lipgloss...pretty standard..not too many details I can give....

LASTLY - Bionic Mascara in Jet Black - I have yet to try this as I had mascara on...I am going to do a Smashbox look when I get home tonight and try it out, I have heard nothing but RAVE reviews on this one, and the brush is a nice thick wand..again..will update on that one later!!

It all comes in a woven black clutch bag with a "whip" (just what it looks like to me) wound around it, which I promptly cut off..so not to seem dominatrix-esque....BUT the inside of the bag is a soft pink satin with brown flowers..and is super cute...
This was about $74 CDN with tax, but with all the products it has (all full size by the way) it is well worth it for me to try a good sampling of smashbox products....

whew...well that was long...i love the little kits that they have and would suggest taking a peeka t them as they are quite cost effective and you get to try a whole bunch of different looks!
