Since I am an eyeliner-aholic, I was really excited to try out the pencil kit, until I read and re-read the box to find out that the liners in the set are NOT the Limitless Eye Liners that Smashbox is famous for. These are just regular pencil eyeliners. Still, the colors are gorgeous and highly pigmented:
Since these liners are not the limitless formula, in the above photo I swatched one of the limitless liners in Peacock underneath the others, and then rubbed my hand to see how the limitless formula would compare to the liners in the set.
Total disappointment, right? At least the good thing is the lip gloss formula in the Snap You're Fab Holiday Lip Gloss Set is the trustworthy Lip Enhancing Gloss formula, which is non-sticky and wears at least a good 3-4 hours on me. Also, you get two full-sizes (Radiant and Pout) and 4 travel sizes, which are still pretty decent-sized. The shades in this set are on the sheer side, so the red shade It Girl isn't a bright opaque red, but a subtle one. All the shades are very wearable and would complement almost all skin tones.
The Life is Your Set Holiday Pencil Kit retails for $22 but is currently on sale Sephora for $18,and the Snap You're Fab Holiday Lip Gloss Set retails for $24. Overall, I think these make great gifts. The whole set would be nice, but I think these are great to break up in to a few gifts...2 eyeliners and 3 glosses, 1 of each, or however you want! These also make great stocking stuffers!
