Heat up your look with the limited edition Precious Smoky Kit!
Composed of 2 of this season’s must-have looks: Precious Smoky Brown for a warm, ultra-shimmery look and Smoky Khaki for a dark, smoldering look.
This is the small, yet essential trendy makeup kit to offer or treat yourself to this winter.
As one of two eye shadow palettes released with Yves Rocher’s holiday collection, the Precious Smoky Kit contains 4 eye shadows and 2 mini eye pencils. The shadows can be divided up into duos to allow you 2 different looks.
This palette comes in a cardboard box that opens up like a book and stays shut via a magnet. There is a small mirror on the inside and a double-ended sponge applicator. There is also an insert showing 2 different eye looks included.
The palette is a little bulky for traveling, being 1.5 inches thick, but is at least lightweight.
Four colors are included in this palette. In the left column, there is a chocolate brown with gold shimmers and a champagne. In the right column, you get a forest green with silver shimmers and a pale, yellow-based gold.
These shadows have average pigmentation. The 2 shadows in the right column lack a certain vibrancy. But all 4 colors are decently smooth.
The 2 eye pencils are surprisingly pigmented and have extremely soft formulations that transfer onto the skin easily. You get a very dark forest green color that appears more like an off-black on the skin and a deep chocolate brown.
Ease of Use: 8.5/10
These shadows are soft enough to glide easily onto the skin. You will need to layer the colors to even out the finishes and improve the pay-off. The liners glide on nicely to the skin without need for layering.
You get 4 shadows and 2 mini pencils for $16.00, averaging out to a little more than $2.50 for each item.
