What else you need to know:
“This is high-octane glam makeup for dressing up to look fabulous and dance the night away!” —Matthew Williamson, Fashion Designer

Matthew Williamson – The Rich Is Back! contains four shadows (a tan, a chocolate bronzy brown, a deep teal and a pearly ivory), a gloss (in a maraschino cherry shade) and a shimmery peachy blush.

The shadows are pigmented and smooth, so easy to apply and blend. The gloss isn’t sticky at all and isn’t overly vibrant, so it works well with the shadows, as does the blush – which is understated. I was actually a little worried the blush wouldn’t show up on me, but it looks lovely and not overly “disco ball”-like (see below). I also am a fan of the mascara, which I’ve previously reviewed here.

The value of this kit is incredible. You’re getting high quality products that wear well and last for $34.00. This travels well so it’s perfect for your Summer vacation or weekend getaway.

I’m a little obsessed with the eye shadows so I had to share three photos with you of the look I created. The shadows and mascara are from this set and the liner is NYX Kohl Kajal Brown Liner.
