Smashbox Wish List Kit Swatch + Photos

The Smashbox Wish List is something I've had my eye on for a while now. I only use Smashbox's Bronzers, and I'm almost out, so because the bronzer is $30, I figured I should try the Smashbox Holiday Kit. It's $49 bucks, and the haul is pretty good.

• Photo Finish Foundation Primer (travel size)
• Photo Op Under Eye Brightener
• Jet Set Waterproof Eye Liner in Midnight Black
• Baked Fusion Soft Lights in Stardust
• O-Gloss Gold

Now here's a tip you won't hear except for here. If you buy the kit at Sephora, you actually get a better bargain. The kit is $49 still, but included in the package is the gold makeup bag. I don't know exactly why Smashbox only included the makeup bag in the Sephora kit, but when you buy this anywhere else, like at Ulta, the makeup bag is not included.

What I was really excited about was the O-Gloss Gold Lip Gloss. Its somewhat clear, with a hue of pink and a lot of gold sparkle. It's really very pretty. As you can from the above and below pic the sparkle is out of control!


O-Gloss, Photo OP Under Eye Brightner, Baked Fusion Bronzer

The Bronzer is really a little too light for my liking as you can see from my swatch and the above pic. Instead of a bronzed color, it's actually more of a silver sparkle. I use bronzer for a little color and this just gives you a little more glitter and not much of the color most bronzers give off. But it is quite pretty, right? I just have to have it in my collection.

Overall, I really like the kit, and for the price it's quite a steal. The under eye brightner worn under your regular concealer, gives you a little more bright eye and a little more moisturizer. Of course the foundation primer is very silky, but I haven't found anything too special about it.

The real "gold" in the kit is the lip gloss and the eye brightner if you ask me. Either way, it's a good buy. I'm highly recommending this holiday kit. Plus it won't be around forever, so if you're debating it's worth the purchase.
