You also get a great tutorial on how to get the perfect Bronze Smoky Eye look.

It's got great pointers, especially if you are new to the Lock and Roll Shadows.

Below are shadow swatches. The top shadow is obviously the loose shadow, which can be worn solo or on top of the cream shadow. If you haven't used these before, each has a little rollerball that applies the color easily and evenly.

The cream/liquid shadow is applied with a brush. You can then manipulate it with an eye shadow brush to give it a smoky look. I like to smoke out the edges in the crease using a densely packed dome brush. Finally, the Clay liner/shadow in plum is beautiful! Shown above, blended out slightly, you can also get a more purple-pigmented line, depending on how you apply. Because of the formula of this liner, it doesn't move.

You also get a deluxe size of the Park Ave Princess Bronzer, in a cute little case (it's a different case from the full size). I love this bronzer because it gives you a buildable hint of color, without looking phony.

The Rise and Shine lip duo is worth the price of admission alone. The stain is actually the perfect summer nude and the gloss is the perfect accent. It lasts for several hours (the gloss on its own does ok, too!) and looks like you have been at the beach. This is my new favorite lip stain!

Here is my completed look using this kit.

This is a must have - I love it for the look and I love it for the value and individual pieces.

All of this retails for $45 (tt's worth $112!), so pick one up before they are gone!

  1. Wow! Amazing deal! I really want to try the cream shadows/liners so I'll probably get this.

  2. I love Tarte's kits, packed full of full sized well thought our products. Park Ave. Princess has become my favorite bronzer. This look is perfect for you--really brings out your pretty blue eyes!
