The final set within this collection is the Glow Getter set in Pink, this is a face kit which consists of a mini Extra Dimension Skin Finish, a pink Strobe Cream and a Duo Fibre Face Brush.
The collection also includes two palettes for the eyes and two for the face. The face palettes come in Fair and Medium-Deep and contain an Extra Dimension Skin Finish, blush and bronzer suited to the chosen set shade. The Rose Eye Palette is packaged in metallic green and consists of warm-toned, pinky shades and the Smokey Eye Palette is packaged in royal blue, a palette of cool-toned browns with a stunning pop of blue.
