This is an extremely versatile set for simple looks or for high drama evening looks. It’s super easy to make a perfect cats eye or smoky eye in about 60 seconds, no kidding.
The set includes:

* 1 Full size loose eyeshadow in Gunmetal or Onyx depending on color choice, mine came with Gunmetal
* 1 Cat Eyeliner Stencil/Top Eyeliner Stencil
* 1 Smokey Eye Stencil/Bottom Eyeliner Stencil
* 1 Instruction card
* 1 black zippered neoprene case (this was not included in my sample so I don’t have pics of it)
I really love the stencils – they are the stars of the kit. Here is the Smoky Eye Stencil:
The stencils are made of clear vinyl and they seem to fit just about any eye shape. I love that they sort of ‘stick’ to my skin so they are super easy to use and keep in place. With my morning pre-coffee shaky hands, perfect eyelining can be darn near impossible – but not with these babies. They are fantastic for lining with either eyeshadow or with eye pencil.
Here is the stencil for a quick, easy, and perfect cats eye look:
Two – or really three – eyeshadows are included in the kit. First, there is a duo compact of eyeshadow that can be used wet or dry. There are four different duos from which to choose. My kit came with Golden Girl, a super pretty combination of shimmery peach and golden brown. I love the shades and the eyeshadow is creamy with excellent pigment.
The kit also comes with a loose shadow in either Matte Onyx or Iridescent Gunmetal. Mine came with Iridescent Gunmetal, a shimmery dark black/grey.
I find that this works best with water or a mixing medium to create a liquid liner otherwise there is too much fallout under the eyes and it tends to smudge. But wet it’s terrific and the stencils make it a dream to use.
For perfect eyelining you need great brushes and this set has two excellent options.
The Pro Eyeshadow Brush is a small, fluffy eyeshadow brush that is perfect for the mobile lid and for softening eyeliner up a bit. The Pro Eyeliner Brush works great for both dry and wet lining.
If you struggle with eyelining, then this is a perfect set for you. If you don’t struggle but want something that makes eyelining quicker and easier, pick up Beth Bender’s Girls’ Night Out Set! I love it – and at $34.99 it is a real bargain right now. - Lisa
