This kit is very small, but a good way to try several products at once. I'd never ventured into the make-up line other than the BB cream.
This comes with the following shades:
Foundation SPF 20: Warm Sienna and Golden Glow, both yellow-based. Even though these are in the medium kit, they work for my light complexion. The Warm Sienna for now and the Golden Glow for warm weather. Each is about the size of a silver dollar.
Mocha Blush: The size of a quarter, brownish-pink and goes on lightly with not a lot of color. Great for daytime.
Eye Shadows: Oyster, a satiny light cream/beige. Supernova, a somewhat sparkly medium brown. A little too much sparkle for me but I use it sparingly. Each color is about the size of a nickel.
Lip and Cheek Stain in Forever Pink. This reminds me of a mood lipstick. It looks like a clear lip balm until the warmth of your lips turns it pink. You can also use this on your cheeks, but I didn't like the sticky feel of it. It smells very fruity. The size in this kit is tiny, almost like a sample lipstick you'd get from an Avon representative.
Also a worthless face brush and a sponge-tip eye shadow applicator. I tossed these as I prefer my own make-up brushes.
The colors seem to have a pretty good staying power, and I love the lip stain for its moisturizing quality. These colors are for a natural day look. As they are so pale, I doubt if they'd be enough for a heavy night-out look.
The make-up is in a cardboard-like container with a magnetic closure.
I think it's a little overpriced for what you get, but all Jane Iredale make-up is high priced.
It goes on very smooth but looks cake-y powdery for about 5 min. Then sets into a very nice smooth cashmere type look. I only use primer under the foundation, and do not use the setting spray (yet lol). So setting spray and a good moisturizer would prob make a lot of difference. But even without, after a few minutes its very velvety looking.
The eyeshadows are very pigmented, a little goes along way, and very buildable if you want to go even darker in crease.
I received the pink lipgloss in mine, which I was very concerned about being A) I don't like pink, and B) my complexion does not like pink (olive toned). Id really rather have the peach they gave in liter shades kits. I applied it the first time, and it actually changes shades and developed into a nice plum type color on me. It reminds me of IT Cosmetics lipstick that goes on clear and then changes shades based on your body chemistry. Although its 'pink' don't worry, its actually a really pretty shade and not pink at all once applied (at least on me).
I only have 2 complaints really. 1 is the applicator brushes they include are completely worthless, don't even bother trying to use them. It would be nice for almost $40 if they would give you real trial/travel sized brushes of their regular brushes so we can try out those too, or even the flocked sponge for foundation and just leave the eyeshadow applicators out all together. Seriously, just toss them when you open the box and use your own brushes.
My 2nd complaint is about the box itself. Although its pretty to present the products in this box, it really makes it a nightmare trying to use the products because you have to be so meticulous and perfect when loading up brushes (the powders fly out everywhere and land in all the other products, so I have foundation in my eyeshadow tray, and eyeshadow in my foundation trays, and blush everywhere in everything), or carry them with you anywhere while in the 5x5x2 HARD box with hard sharp corners. It would be so much better if the pans of products were removable so you could place them in a makeup case for travel/work/on-the-go use. They could even design/include a little JI square tin about the size of a Altoids tin (prob less then $1 to make), to place the products into after you've opened the presentation box to give you an option if you prefer to not use these while attached inside the box. Its to awkward and takes up too much space in a purse to carry this box anywhere other then your bathroom vanity. I would love to buy another JI Simple Makeup Kit for travel use only, the products are perfect size to take on a weekend getaways or vacation. But NOT in this hard box. JI if your listening/reading, please include some type of option to either remove the products from the box to place in our own makeup trays for travel, or design a gorgeous 3x4x1 tin (about the size of a lozenges tin) to carry your amazing products with us :)
Oh and one last thought, I wish they would sell trial/travel sized brushes of their Handi brush and eyeshadow brushes. I would love to try the Handi brush, but I don't want to spend $40 on a brush I don't know if Im even gonna like. A smaller version for $10 would be great to try it, and use as a travel brush. Then if customers like it, they can order the full size $40 brushes for home use :)
