I tried smash's "Eye Wish Palette" last night for the first time and I totally, totally love it!
My two favorite things about this kit:
- The quality of this value/holiday kit is equal to their core line. A lot of times, to save money on value offerings, companies use different formulas in limited life products. These shadows are beautifully pigmented and come with two minis of their other best selling eye items. DNA Mascara, revolutionary brush that literally "wraps" your lash and lid primer. I have especially oily Asian lids and I did find the mascara wear off slightly, but I was at an outdoor party in LA for 4-5hrs. Don't judge me or the mascara.
- My favorite favorite thing is the totally fresh and innovative look cards that come with the kit. Lori Taylor, who heads up their Pro program, is one of my all time favorite makeup artists. She creates fresh, modern looks on a perfected canvas. I often don't follow the looks included in kits anymore as I find them to be very cookie cutter and not necessarily made for anything other than a Caucasian eye. Besides, who wants to look like everyone else? I found these looks to be a totally refreshing change and easy enough for anyone to complete.
I wore the Modern Cat Eye first with their Baby Pout lip gloss.
