Review: Missha Easy Styling Makeup Kit in Smoky Contrast #1

I'd been meaning to post the review for this kit. I bought this kit when I ordered the sample set a few months ago. The Easy Styling kits come in 3 variations and retail for $24.99. Each comes with 2 lip products, a cream shadow and an eyeshadow duo.
 

The packaging is awesome. The above picture is just the box (flash). Yes, the box is a holo.

Oh, wait! You don't care how pretty the packaging is? You want to know if the products are good? Well if you've been reading the blog awhile, you know that I am not a fan of cream products in the same palette as powder ones. However, I do like all the products in this palette, even the cream eyeshadow (which looks black even though it's blue with shimmer)! I know, it's insane. On first touch it feels kind of oily but it does set.
The lip products are ones you would imagine being in a smokey eye palette. They are both peachy nude shades and both fairly sheer yet can be built up and they have no obnoxious glitter or shimmer - one is a bit more glossy (#1) and one is more matte (#2). They feel very nice between the lips and have no smell or taste.
 
Here is a better view of the lip products and the cream eyeshadow (on top you can see a bit of the shimmer in the cream shadow).

And I mentioned that the cream eyeshadow actually sets. This was after I rubbed my finger over it. The shimmer shifted but I was pleasantly surprised.
And here's after I tried washing it all off with water...
 
So am I glad I picked this up? Yes. Would I usually pick out a palette with cream and powder? No. 

Love the blingtastic packaging though. Is bligtastic a word? No. Do I care? No!

It's convenient to have a set like this. :) So many things you need all in one place.

This is really pretty!! I never give any love to my palettes (although I'm slowly but surely working on it!). I think I just might need to pick this up...only after I get my paws on that new glittery Stila shadow one though! You've got me addicted XD

This set is pretty convenient! LOL i hate it when you make swatches and the swatches take forever to wash off

@Maggie: I adore the packaging too (if you couldn't already tell). Don't forget the Missha anniversary deal goes till the 12th!

@sunniipinky: I just wish there was also a blush (even a cream blush) in the kit. Then it would be truly an all in one palette!

@Lisa Kate: Hahah! Yay! Missha is giving $20 off your purchase for new customers till the 12th so you might want to get that before the Stila!

@Y: I think it's a good thing though. The last thing I want is for eyeshadows to wipe off real easily after application. This shows that they will last on the eyes, especially layered with the cream!
