I am in love with the new kit by Bare Escentuals- The fabulous Buxom Samantha's Smoky Eye Kit has everything that you need for the perfect smoky eye and nude lip look.This kit includes the Big & Healthy Lip Polish in Samantha (seductive nude), Smoky Eye Stick in Smokin' Pistol (smoky coal), Buxom Smoky Eye Brush, and Buxom Lash Mascara in Blackest Black. All of these products are in full size too, making this an even better deal!
To review each product in the kit: First, I have been using the Buxom Lash Mascara for quite some time now, and I absolutely ADORE it. It darkens, lengthens, and thickens lashes and is flake free for 12 hours! The hour-glass shaped applicator brush is definitely the trick- It gets rid of all the clumps that often form when putting on mascara. The results that I have gotten with this Buxom Lash are amazing- I truly can not live a day without it.The Big & Healthy Lip Polish in Samantha is such a flattering color. This seductive and super trendy nude lip color will become a staple in your makeup routine. This lip polish has an infusion of Vitamins A and E to keep lips super soft, smooth, and protected. This lip polish creates a more plump and full look, while maintaining sheen without any stickiness. This gloss is truly fabulous for both day and night makeup looks, and especially looks amazing with a smoky eye, of course!
This is my new favorite way to make a fabulously perfect smoky eye- the Buxom Smoky Eye Stick can actually be used in three different ways. You can use this stick to shadow your eye, as an eyeliner, and as an easy smoky eye creator (works best with help of the Smoky Eye Brush). This stick is waterproof, which helps it stay put and smudge proof all night long.
The fabulous Smoky Eye Brush is a necessity for smoking your eyes to perfection. This tapered, bullet-tip brush was specifically designed by Buxom for use with the 3-in-1 Smoky Eye Stick, to line, shadow, and smoke out your eyes.
How to get the perfect smoky eye with the Smoky Eye Stick and the Smoky Eye Brush:
