As promised a review on the Smashbox Beauty Resolutions Kit, that i recently bought from Sephora. I have been using this from past few days maybe 2 weeks...

On to the review:

Blush/Softlights duo in Super/Model: This was the main reason i bought the kit for. As i wanted to try Soft lights this was a good deal. The full size softlights retail for $28. This duo has exactly half the quantity. The colour is pretty similar to Shimmer shade from the permanent line. This is to be applied as a highlighter anywhere on the body. I personally use it over a blush to give a soft sheen. This is pretty fine/finely milled, soft and not at all chunky or glittery. The name is very apt...Softlights...because its soft and gives lovely sheen, which is chic, especially when light hits over it.
The blush is a lovely matte peachy/corally colour. The pigmentation is amazing. The blush and highlight work well together. It does has some scent to it, which is not annoying, but i would have prefered no fragrance blush. The packaging is no problem for me. It has a clear top, no mirror.

Lipgloss in true colour Couture: This is a full size lipgloss and has lovely tomato/coral colour with gold shimmers to it. This being a true colour, has a decent colour pay off, is buildable. The shimmers or colours are not over the top. The lipgloss is less sticky, infact very less sticky in comparison to MAC lipglass and as a result has to be re-applied. I already own a couple of Smashbox lipglosses and i like the product. The individual product retails for $18.

Eyeshadow trio in Glow on: These are 3 neutral colours. To be honest i didn't try these, as i already have colours similar to the ones in it. My past experience says that Smashbox eyeshadows are little powdery in texture. Some have poor colour pay off and some are like butter and have great colour payoff. I don't know how this one is. But it is compact enough to carry while travelling. The single trios retail for $28.

Brow tech and cream eyeliner palatte: I like this palatte for all together different reason. I personally hate cream eyeliners as eyeliners, but they are great for smudging out, to create base for smokey eye looks. They have 6 lovely shades all apt for smokey eye look. It has a brow wax and 3 shades of brow powder. The packaging is super compact, sleek and comes with a mirror. Great for travel, especially the 6 eyeliner colours that i use as base. Its amazing!!!

I would say, this is a great deal. Worth every penny!!!!
