Benefit Smokin’ Eyes palette

They say,

"Benefit Smokin’ Eyes is a complete brow and eye kit to create a sexy, smoky professional look. Each kit contains eye bright, three eye shadows in pink, pewter and deep charcoal, liner, shaping wax, a fluff shadow / hard angle brush, tiny tweezers and an illustrated lesson."

 

image I say,

Retailing at $68(AUD) this nifty little palette contains not only all you need to create that smouldering smokey eye but is also versatile enough for many other looks. I was originally planning on creating a smokey eye with the palette, but then I realised that since it already contains instructions to in a cute booklet I might as well show you that it can be used for other looks too.

 
Both the eyebright and pencil liner can be used as base shadows or the original intended use as a highlight and liner. The shadows can be used all together to create a smokey eye or individually to create other looks. Having added the brow wax, ‘tweezies’ and dual ended applicator this is also a great idea if you are staying overnight somewhere or travelling. All else you would need would be a multi-purpose lip and cheek product, such a poise-tint, mascara and maybe a gloss or a balm.

 

Here is the tutorial I created with this palette, hope you like it!

Sophia Loren Inspired with Benefit Smokin’ Eyes Palette

I really wanted to do a Sophia Loren look and I also wanted to show you that palettes can be used for other looks than intended.

I wish I could have gotten great picture of the look  but unfortunately I didn’t. This is a screen cap, hence the bad quality.

So here’s the video

Sorry that the lighting isn’t great!

The Benefit Palette was given to me for PR consideration, please don’t think this influences my opinion. As you can see the palette is versatile and you can use it for other purposes than just a Smokey eye, you can see from the tutorial!
The Primer was given to me by a fellow blogger for reviewing purposes and I won the Napoleon liner.

This is a tad on the dramatic side but you know me I can’t help it!

For more about the palette I wrote up a review here http://madamebfatale.blogspot.com/2010/03/benefit-smokin-eyes-palette.html
