This kit was almost an exact duplicate of an earlier eye-and-cheek kit, First Class. The differences were the size of the colors (eye colors were all .01 oz and the blush was .57 grams in this kit) and the inclusion of an eyeliner and a lip gloss. This kit could be seen as more inclusive, in that it had eye/lip/cheek and eyeliner. However, this was not precisely a winningish color combination when it was first released as an eye-and-cheek kit back in the day, and it didn’t get a whole lot better. Real Deal and Exquisite are just too light-coverage to have both of them in a kit and get a decent look.
