Don’t Gloss O-ver the Smashbox Wish List Kit

Published in: Makeup, Product Reviews


Wearing Smashbox O-Gloss Gold on lips, Fusion Soft Lights in Baked Stardust on cheeks, Photo Finish Foundation Primer on face, Photo Op Under-Eye Brightener and Jet Set Waterproof Eye Liner along my lashlines

Smashbox hopes to make wishes come true this year with the new five-piece $49 Wish List kit ($108 value). A buck from every purchase goes to the Children’s Miracle Network (I would have liked to have seen them give a little more than $1, but at least it’s something).

It comes with five smashing products — Photo Op Under-Eye Brightener, O-Gloss Gold, Photo Finish Foundation Primer – Travel Size, Fusion Soft Lights in Baked Stardust, Jet Set Waterproof Eye Liner.

O-Gloss Gold: As soon I put it on, I thought, “Wow, sure is gold!” But it quickly mellows out to a pretty peach. It’s a long-lasting golden peachy pink, smooth but not sticky, with a light peppermint flavor and scent.

Photo Op Under-Eye Brightener: A warm, shimmery peachy pink liquid highlighter designed to be worn under concealer. I’ve been applying it in the hollows at the inside corners of my eyes. It delivers a subtle brightening effect, not an “Oh, my, gawd! I look 10 years younger” kinda thing.

Fusion Soft Lights Powder: One of the prettiest little pinwheel pans I’ve seen in a while (the shades are all supposed to be swirled together). It gives a soft, peachy pink glow. I like that the shimmer isn’t overly frosty and doesn’t settle into my pores like some shimmery blushes do.

Photo Finish Foundation Primer: I’ve said it before, but I’m not the biggest fan of this. Perhaps because it contains silicone, it feels heavy on my skin, and I feel like my skin can’t breathe with it on. It doesn’t ruin the kit, though, because I know how many women love this primer, so I’d probably just give it to someone who’d love it more than I do.

Jet Set Waterproof Liner: Just a basic black waterproof liner in a tiny jar barely the diameter of a nickel (but I’ve never even finished a jar of eyeliner before, so it probably doesn’t matter). I do wish they’d managed to squeeze a liner brush in the box… That would have come in handy.

    Hi Karen, you look so pretty! I love the under eye brightner. I also think that the primer is really heavy, but i’m really diggin the powder. This might have to be a purchase.

  2. Nina says:

    Lovely look! :)

  3. Sarah says:

    These are some nice products but the fact that they’re only giving $1 to the foundation is quite disappointing. I work for Clinique and we have a Breast Cancer Awareness Moisturizer for $45.50 and they donate $10 of that to breast cancer research. Just a little FYI since I looove Clinique!

    Wow, that fotd is stunning. But i’d rather donate the dollar myself, it seems a little stingy of smashbox to only donate that much for a product costing almost $50.

    wish the gloss was on it’s own. I am not a fan on their primers at all I have the under eye brightern and it’s nothing special

    Beautiful look, Karen! Are you wearing the gloss over another lipcolor or alone?

    Agreed – it is a shame that it is only $1 donation.

  8. aw I was kind of hoping that the gloss would be a little more gold on the lips, but it’s still a lovely color. You look pretty, I love your hair in that picture!
