My search for the perfect smokey eye

I got 3 makeup pallets from Sephora for Christmas this year and I decided to keep one and return the others. This left me with one hefty store credit and a great idea. I was on a mission to find a way to create the perfect smokey eye. I stumbled across this pallet. It looks amazing from the packaging and since it has everything you need in one box I went for it. Sephora sells this product in brown and black for $38 each.
I followed the steps to create my smokey eye look and I failed. It looked awful! The colors were wrong for my skin tone and I needed to use my brushes and extra colors to blend it better. Maybe I just need Lindsay Burdett to help me with this one. She does my makeup better then anyone else, so I declare a redo with her help! (If that's okay Lindsay)
If I had to decide after one try if this product is worth it or not, I'd go with not. Having said that, even with out help from Lindsay, I do like the eye liner, mascara, and 2 of the 4 colors it comes with.
