The always mod Nina sent along Smashbox Mini Lip and Eye Palette, it came in the same shipment as the Totally Fab Lip Gloss Collection. Opening both of these holiday special Mod Chic Limited Edition Kits brought tons of “oohs” and “aahs”. The packaging is just sexy. Multifunctional, dazzling colors in the sleekest holders ever. The Lip Gloss collection was already reviewed and was a win. Will this palette also be a “must have”?

The palette reminds me of an ultra-glam little black book. It’s the perfect to-go item. You know what else is a perfect to-go item? The glosses, Cat Cosmetics Open Sesameow brushes, Tarte’s Lights Camera Lashes Mascara, Jelly Pong-Pong’s Bronzer, Besame’s dual action eye and lipliners, Boscia’s Blotting tissues and Bourjois’s cellphone gloss to go.

Yup, all this travel size enjoyment is making my cosmetic case bulge at the seams! My make-up mess use to be just contained to my vanity sink. Now it has been following me like a shadow (shadow as in the groundhog kind-not as in shimmery powder).

I have since down scaled! Thanks to The Smashbox Mini Lip and Eye Palette, I have been able to retire most of the above items back to my powder room! With four stunning neutral eyeshadows, one dark enough to line the lids and two fantastic gloss colors all in one easy book that can fit into a pocket it wasn’t too hard a sacrifice. As if that wasn’t complete enough, Smashbox even thought to include a great double ended tool. One end is a handy lip brush the other side is a practical smolder tip for the shadows. The price for this beauty is $25.00! It would make a fantastic secret Santa gift or a lovely present for any make-up lover with-out breaking the bank.

Here is what Smashbox has to say…“It’s just so Quadrophenia. This super-sleek palette gives you an ultra mod look in a flash. Perfectly portable for quick touch ups day or night, this case contains four velvety smooth powder shadows, two sheer lip glosses, and a mini double-ended brush for eye shadow application and smudging. Shades include: EYE SHADOWS in mink, bronze, pearly white, charcoal. LIP GLOSSES in sheer honey and pinky brown”.

Ladies, please post if Smashbox’s palette is an all-in-one? Can I save my Gucci cosmetics case or am I going to have to keep lugging tons of makeup around and resort to a Ziploc baggie ? I now shudder at the thought.
