Victoria's Secret - The Bombshell Look Make-Up Kit

Thursday, 7 June 2012

5:30am. £20. Flight at 6am. This was an impulse buy from World Duty Free! The Bombshell Look makeup kit comes with 6 products and a free fragrance - the new Bombshell Summer Edition fragrance from Victoria's Secret. Packaging is well presented with the front of the box showing the different products included within the package and the back of the box showing you how to achieve the look. 

Included within the kit are the following items:
  1. Primer
  2. Mascara
  3. Eyeliner
  4. Lipgloss
  5. Eyeshadow palette with mirror and eyeshadow applicator brush (3 eye shadow colours)
  6. Mineral blush
  7. Victoria's Secret Bombshell Fragrance
What I really like about this kit is how mini sized the items are, meaning I could easily fit these into my suitcase. Also, for 7 products, I'd say it's reasonably priced at £20. It's a great starter kit for beginners and includes essential make-up items. 

I've never tried Victoria's Secret make-up before since we don't have a VS store in the UK yet so I was super excited to try out some of their make-up. I found that the mascara wand is a bit like Benefit's BADgal lash, quite thick in size with lots of bristles. It doesn't clump much and separates the lashes nicely. The black pencil eyeliner glides on easily. The lipgloss is a pretty shimmery pink colour, I like to layer this over a coat of lipstick to make sure it stays on longer. The eyeshadow palette includes 3 colours, a shimmery white/silver colour for highlighting the area beneath the brows and the inner corner of the eyes, a metallic blue/teal colour for the lid of the eyes and a very glittery darker shade of blue/black which you can use to create a 'V' shape near the outer corner of the eye for definition. The Bombshell perfume smells good! Not too strong but not too light either, it has a sweet sort of smell that can be worn in the day or night time. I haven't tried the mineral blush or primer yet but the mineral blush is a rosy pink colour with creamy texture. The primer has SPF 20 to help protect the skin from the sun and create a smooth, flawless finish.

Now we can all look like Victoria's Secret angels. What's not to love about that?
