” O_o, that looks pretty… yum that smells nice…. ahhh shinny glitter, drool, MUST have!”
Every time I walk into a store/drugstore that sells makeup, I feel like a kid in a candy store 🙂 I love beauty products!!!! Lotions, masks, makeup, perfumes … anything remotely beauty related, I’ve GOT to have it!
Same situation when I walked into ULTA and bought the Smashbox Beauty Exposed Kit. I saw it, I wanted it, I bought. Mission accomplished 🙂
- PHOTO FINISH FOUNDATION PRIMER (travel size)
This is one of my favorite face primers, so the fact that it was included in the kit was a selling point enough for me.
- BEAUTY EXPOSED EYE SHADOW PALETTE WITH SOFT LIGHTS
Such gorgeous colors! They look okay in the palette, but when you wear them they give such a nice frosty pearlescent effect.
- LIP ENHANCING GLOSS in STARFRUIT (travel size)
Nothing really special but a nice color anyways
- BLUSH RUSH in PEONY
Once again a nice coral/pink color. A little chalky but a nice color anyways.
- EYE PENCIL in STONE
Dark brown liner pencil. I liked that it was very easy to apply and I think its best suited for a smudged smokey look.
(bottom is Smashbox in stone, top is Wet N’ Wild in Dark Brown. Both are very similar, although the picture is showing the top one to be more reddish.)
Overall: if you have the $39 USD to spend, do it. It’s a nice kit, nice products, nothing too flashy, but great quality.
HOWEVER!!!! All the products are dupeable!!!!!
The eyeshadows are very similar to Covergirl’s Shimmering Sands
the lip gloss is similar to Wet N’ Wild Mega Slick in Panning for Gold/Candy Apple
The eyeliner is very similar to Wet N’ Wild’s dark Brown eyeliner and the blush is comparable to ELF’s Twinkle Pink
So it’s up to you, pay $39 or for about 1/4 of the price get basically the same thing 🙂
