The folks over at sent me the Cameleon BR Make Up Kit to try out. This all in one case contains 24 different eye shadow colors, 4 different lip glosses, 4 colors of blusher, 2 powder cakes, 1 eye pencil and several applicator brushes. The case also has a built in mirror so you really don't need anything else to go alongside it but mascara.
One of my favorite make-up products to play with are eyeshadows, so I was excited to try out the eyeshadow palettes. With 24 different colors to choose from, there's a wide variety sure to suit most women. They are more faint and neutral colors, although there are a couple of brighter ones too, like the shade of blue no. 12. My favorite color out of the palette was a bronze, no.9. I also liked the sage green, no.2, and the silver, no. 23. Some of these other colors definitely were not suitable for my skin coloring OR my taste, like the peach-y no 9, but it could be right up other folks' alley.
The try that slides out contains the lip gloss, blush, and two basic shades of powder. If you have very light skin or very dark skin, those powders probably won't work for you. The brushes included in the set are your basic applicators - if you're used to artist style brushes, you may want to ignore the ones that came with this set and use your own.
All of the makeup included is listed as hypoallergenic and fragrance free, although I could definitely still smell something when sniffing it. While the kit says it is designed here in the US, I'm guessing it's manufactured elsewhere. I also could not find out anything about whether this item is cruelty free and not tested on animals or not.
Bottom line, the Cameleon BR Make Up Kit is a fun gift for those wanting to experiment with make up palettes and see what colors suit them - especially for tweens or teens just learning how to apply makeup (sparingly). The basic colors also make the palette great if you are traveling and don't want to lug around a ton of makeup. However, those who are more discerning in their makeup choices might not benefit as much from what's included. For instance, I rarely wear blush so those are a bit of a waste for me. (I used it to do princess makeup on my daughter though, and she had a blast with it. lol)
