Urban Decay - Smoke Out Kit

Hey lovelies :)

It was my birthday earlier this month (2nd Jan) but with it being just after Christmas i always struggle to tell my parents what gift i would like. So on a post-christmas/pre-birthday trip into town i sauntered over the the Urban Decay stand and spotted the Urban Decay Smoke Out Kits. I've always been a bit anxious about purchasing Urban Decay products as i like to keep my eye make-up quite neutral, whereas most of the Urban Decay palletes are all bright, vivid colours.

However after examining the "Smoke Out Kits" i discovered that they were made up of 4 neutral colours . . . SOLD! Yup, forever a sucker for snazzy packaging i quickly became the proud owner of one of these gems. :)

The Breakdown
Urban Decay describe this kit as *an amazing smoke-and-mirrors kit which unveils the secret the the elusive smokey eye*.
  • 4 Colour Co-ordinated Colours.

  • Foolproof Instructions

  • 24/7 Eye Pencil in Zero

  • Skyscraper Mascara
  • Mirror

I chose the *Sweet Lucy* kit. This included 4 colours to achieve a gray/black smokey eye. There are 2 other Smoke Out kits with different colour schemes - Green and Brown, if you don't want the colour to be too intense. Anywho, i wanted the dramatic look, so opted for Sweet Lucy.
The kit itself is structured in a layered fashion. Each layer holds one or more products from the list above. All the layers are held together by a nail/screw/stud (yeah, i've never been good at describing DIY type things! hehe) well whatever it is, it lets all the layers swivel/move freely. The mirror is attached to another swivelly screw which allows the mirror to be moved to a different angle so you are able to see your pretty peepers easily. The packaging also has a smokey look both inside and out, obviously keeping in with the theme of the product!

I love this kit as you can create daytime looks, then simply vamp it up in the evening. Also with the kit being super dinky its really convinient if your going somewhere overnight and don't want to cart around a load of eye products with you.

So yup, this super stylish kit gets a big thumbs up from me. :)
RRP £22.00

Lots more posts coming up over the next few days!
