Smashbox Art. Love. Color. Master Class Holiday 2015 Palette

Smashbox Art. Love. Color. Master Class Holiday 2015 Palette ($65.00 for 1.24 oz.) includes 32 eyeshadows, six blushes, and two highlighters. It’s a disappointing palette as the majority of the shades were somewhere between dry, powdery, and dusty (or some combination thereof) with sheerer coverage and a short-wearing formula.

ColourPop Medium-Dark/Deep Dark Strobing Kit

ColourPop Medium-Dark/Deep Dark Strobing Kit ($39.00 for 0.56 oz.) includes three Super Shock Cheek shades and three Lippie Stix shades. It is designed for darker skin, though two shades overlap with the kit for lighter skin tones (Parasol and Thistle) — I would have loved for them to have not repeated personally! The products are of good quality or better, and they’re easy to use, work well, and wear nicely.
