Review: Smashbox Perfectly Polished Lids

So I received the Smashbox Perfectly Polished Lids for free as my 500 point bonus from Sephora.  I don't think it's being offered anymore since I've been using it for several weeks but the products are sold through the line in their full size. 

The Cream Eye Liner in Midnight Brown is great!  In fact its probably my favorite brown so far and I love the creamy texture, it really glides with no tugging.  The color is dark brown and very natural looking.

Eye Shadow Trio in Vanilla, Champagne and Brazilian Bronze.  This is a great trio, the colors work great together.  Each shadow has a creamy texture with a slight amount of shimmer.  I love the Bronze and the Vanilla so I tend to use those together.  The Champagne oxidizes a little on my lid as a slightly red color which is so sad because it really is a great neutral but it doesn't work on me.  I loved this trio so much that I've used it as my sole eyeshadow in the past several weeks.

Photo Finish Lid it's okay.  I don't love it as much as I love Two Face Shadow Insurance.  It takes a little extra effort to blend it out.

Lash DNA Mascara.  I love the formula.  The brush is HUGE with the old fashioned synthetic bristles;  it gives great definition and length.  The color is great, formula doesn't flake and it stays put all day.  The size of the brush does make it difficult to apply to the lashes though, because it is so big you have to be super diligent not to ruin the rest of your eye makeup.  I would purchase this though, but my needs are only for mascara on my upper lashes.  I don't think this would work at all for lower lashes.
