I have never been a fan of those huge combination makeup sets but during my recent trip to Victoria’s Secret, I saw the Ultimate Makeup Kit and it’s *so* cute I couldn’t resist!
The Ultimate Makeup Kit comes in a glossy black case that measures 14.4cm x 10.8cm x 3.2cm, which is the exact same size as a Yaby palette, only 3 times as thick. The case feels pretty sturdy and is very easy to open and close.
Inside is a huge vanity mirror, three stackable sliding trays – two on each side and one at the bottom – and a middle section. The two trays on the sides contain 30 Silky Eyeshadows, with colors ranging from your everyday neutrals to smoky greens, blues and purples. The eyeshadows are all semi-pigmented and on the shimmery side.
The middle section contains 5 Lip Glosses and 5 Perfect Lipsticks, along with a mascara, black eyeliner, bright red lip liner and 5 brushes. The brushes look and feel pretty tacky (which is pretty typical for most palettes), so I would suggest applying the colors with your own set of brushes.
At the very bottom, is another sliding tray that sits 4 gorgeous Blushes, a Luminous Powder, Translucent Powder and Bronzer.
I have only tested a few of the eyeshadows, blushes and powders but they all seemed to be pretty pigmented. Plus you get 50 products at only $29.50? Now that is a really good deal!
