If you have been following me for a while you know I am not a huge fan of eye shadow palettes. I know it seems crazy lol. I just find at times there are colors in a palette I wont use and then to me that is just a waste of eye shadow. Who else feels this way? I can not be the only one! Hehe. However the Smashbox Cover Shot Palette Collection offers a shade range for everyone! Whatever look you are wanting to achieve Smashbox has you covered. From the perfect smokey eye, to everyday neutral and even to the brightest colors available there is a palette for you.
Per the Smashbox Website: The collection of 7 high-impact eye shadow palettes were influenced by trends seen in their L.A. photo studio. How fun is that??!!?? Each compact, slim and travel friendly palette offers 6 shadows and a 2 double sided base shades. These shadows are so pigmented and blend like a dream. The pigment packs a lot of punch with the brush so I found having a lighter hand worked much better for application.
Each palette is sold for $29.00. Here are the shade names
- Metallic: Fierce foil finish (not shown)
- Matte: high-coverage, velvety (not shown)
- Golden Hour: Creamy, lit-from-within shades (not shown)
- Softlight: Soft-focus, wearable shimmers
- Smoky: Effortless and modern
- Bold: Transformative and electrifying
- Ablaze: Hot, desert-inspired shades
Smashbox generously sent me 4 from the collection (Bold, Ablaze, Smokey& Softlight) The two I have fallen in love from my collection are Ablaze and Smokey. I am still getting the hang of the colors in Ablaze as these dessert inspired shades are very new to me. I am so use to either a smokey eye or more brown neutral colors.
Lets get to some swatches! I used my finger and did not have to rub hard at all. These instantly felt creamy to the touch but again I found they can be very pigmented (which is a good thing) but it took me a minute to get the hang of it with my brushes.
So what are your thoughts? Have you purchases any of the palettes? Would love to know how you are enjoying them and what shade(s) you purchased?
