I was simply browsing for a new lipstick at the mall when a sales representative from LA Girl Cosmetics offered this kit to me. At first I thought it was from the same company until I was able to check it out when I got home.
What: 2nd Love Jet Setter Make up Kit
2nd Love is distributed by Jet Cosmetics located in Los Angeles, California USA but made in China. This particular collection, as stated at the back of the box, is cruelty free and will be expiring on September 2021.
The kit has two tiers. The first one contains 18 eyeshadow. When you slide the second tier out, you will find 6 lip colors, that’s three on each side, 1 blush, 1 Bronzer and 2 applicators, one for eyeshadow and one for the lips, almost the complete package. I was worried the powders would mix with the creams because of how it was arranged but so far it hasn’t. Since it’s a jet setter kit, it’s compact measured at 80cm x 130cm x 20.5cm (L x W x H) so it doesn’t take so much space on the luggage. It also has a mirror the full size of its cover so you can see your whole face in it.
The eyeshadow palette is typical but perfect enough to go for a day to night look. I did have a problem swatching the light and dark pink color but everything else is applies smoothly.
The blush and bronzer have a great color pay off and reminds me of NARS’s duo in Desire and Laguna. I wasn’t expecting much for the lip colors in this kit because the last time I purchased a lip palette I was disappointed. However, these are just as creamy as the ones in the tube.
I have tried a kit from HBC's San san in the past which is half the size and price of this but 2nd Love Jet Setter Make up kit has better eyeshadow color range and quality than San san's specially the lippies.
If you travel for business as often as I do or even if you don't, this is definitely something easy to work with and carry around. As of the moment, this is my go to make up kit. What's your? ^_^
