This whole Smokin' Eyes package is really cute, & the truth is it's a must for me, as I'm always on a hurry and I can easily pick it up, put it in my bag and use it anywhere, as it has a perfect size and it is so easy to use. BUT, I have to say that I don't use everything there's in it: those tweezers are a joke (easily the worst I've ever had), and the brows' brown wax is too dark for me. Other than that, I'm quite pleased w/ it.
Aw, and the last thing: it is quite expensive... at least in Europe
to makeupaddictla, you have 2 use an eyeshadow base b4 u apply. brushes make all the difference in the world. when your rushed smokey eyes are the last thing you should be trying to apply. i love this kit use it all the time. if you bought everything sepreratly its be tax. great deal! i <3 benefit!
This is a pretty decent palette. I do like the concept of this since it is excellent for traveling and when rushed. However, the quality of products inside the palette isnt the best. The black eyeliner that it comes with for example, smudges like crazy. I get a raccoon eye an hour after application and that's with setting it with the powder! Not amazed with the quality of that eyeliner at all. The eyeshadows are really decent too. Not greatly pigmented but not terrible either. I like the pink color since it is very neutral and great for everyday but it's not as pigmented as I would like. I just find that I really have to pack colors on with this palette. The brow stuff are good. Nothing bad to say about them. Great for when I'm in a rush since everything I typically need is in this palette.
Overall an okay product. i wouldnt purchase this again but will continue using it since it's not terrible either.
This is such a cute little palette. I've worn it a few times. The mini tweezers are so cute. I will buy this again.
Since I'm a huge fan of benefit products and love smokey eyes as well the Smokin' Eyes palette was a must-have for me. I think it has everything you need for creating this signature eye make-up and I love the tiny tweezers that come with the package. It's a bit pricey, but still affordable. Like it!
love love love this easy to use pallette. the price is steep, at $32 yes. however, you get a ton of products in one kit. 2 eyeshadows (gorgeous shimmery colors!) and a liner, brow wax, contour shadow, and also a highlighter for your brow and inner corners of the eye. the grey and pink colors are so incredibly gorgeous. the grey goes on quite dark and thepink it quite light by itself, but together they are phenomenal.
I LIKE this kit, It's perfect for traveling :). and I like the fact that it gives you a subtle, not too dramatic smokey eye look that you can wear as an everyday look too. the brow wax is slightly too dark for me though and the little tweezers are cute but suck. Othewise, a really cute kit!
I like this palette a lot. It's easy to apply quickly, the directions are foolproof, and everything is in one easy to access palette. I do find that I achieve a nicer, more dramatic smoky eye with individual products, but when I'm in a hurry or traveling light, I reach for this often. It's easy to just toss in a bag with some foundation, lipstick, and mascara and go. I also think the brushes are the best quality that I've found in a kit or palette. They are actually usable, so I don't have to take the time to toss in eye brushes. I recommend this palette to anyone who has been struggling with the smoky eye look or just needs a simple all-in-one travel kit for their eyes.
I'm such a sucker for palettes and kits! That said, I do like this palette - it has nice colors that go well together, and the tweezers are just so darn cute. It doesn't really create a dark "smokey" eye in my opinion though; it creates more of a subtle look, and you definitely need to use a base to really get the colors to show up. I only gave it three lippies because though I like it, it was expensive for what it is and I honestly don't find myself reaching for it very often. It's very good for travel, though.
I bought this palette on a whim when I was on a plane (it was duty free so a bit cheaper than normal!!) but I am really happy with it. I use it every morning (when I am normally in a mad rush for work) and its great as I have an all over colour, colour for lid and a liner in this kid plus a nice little brush! And it literally takes me a minute to do!
Only reason I wouldn't buy it again is that I like to try different kits but I would recommend this product - its very useful and good value too.
