Smashbox does it again! Remember how much I loved the Smashbox Studio Stash set? I may have found another set I like even more! The Smashbox Luxe Metallics Glambox!! Smashbox releases a glambox set a couple times a year and they literally come in a cubed box:
This Luxe Metallics Glambox has 7 products in it:

- Arced Liner Brush #21 (full size)
- Lip Enhancing Gloss in Gilded Nude
- Lip Enhancing Gloss in Rose Quartz

Eyelights Quad in Luxe
Jet Set Waterprrof Eye Liner in Vamp and Arced Liner Brush #21
Lip Enhancing Gloss in Gilded Nude and Rose Quartz
L-R: Jet Set Waterprrof Eye Liner in Vamp, Gilded Nude gloss and Rose Quartz gloss
The kit also includes a pamphlet with instructions on how to create a Bronze Glow look and a Metallic Smoke look:
My fave of the two looks is the Metallic Smoke look, so I tried that look first. I followed the instructions exactly, using only my own foundation, concealer, and brushes.
What I was most excited about in this kit was the Arced Liner Brush #21. I have been wanting a bent liner brush like this for a long time. I have only used it a few times but so far I like it. It is SO much easier to use than a regular liner brush that has a similar brush head but is not bent. However, since I have been using an angled brush (the MAC 208 is my fave) to apply gel/cream liner for many years, this is going to take some getting used to. I was also excited to try out the Blush Rush formula. I was a bit hesitant of the color because it appeared so bright on my hand, but when blended well, it adds a soft pink flush to the cheeks.
Overall I really like this kit and will be using these products a lot, especially as Fall and the holiday season approach. Speaking of, this would make a great Christmas present! Or if you are like me and have no patience, a great anytime present to yourself! =)
