Now, for everyone who has been reading my blog I'm pretty sure has guessed I'm obsessed with eye shadows. I really don't have enough eyes to wear all the eye shadows. I need to stop buying them!
I brought this before Christmas and I didn't show it to much love. The thing is, I don't know why?
The eye shadows themselves are so smooth. They are also really pigmented! I'm really impressed by the quality of them. However, I'm not a fan of the colour selection. Some of them are really pretty, others are pretty just don't suit me at all!
In this palette there are 2 completely matt colours which is really good as it makes it more day time suitable. However the matt's don't really do it for me, I sometimes use Vanilla as a highlight but its nothing special. My 2 favourite eye shadows in this is Fizz and Minx. Fizz is just a really good lid colour, again its nothing special but its really pretty. Minx reminds me a little of Satin Taupe, think of Satin Taupe with a bit more purpley silver in and you've got Minx (or just look at the swatch... might be easier.) One colour I really dislike from this is Ignite, its a very copper colour and it just looks awful on me, I have worn it out and I just didn't like it.
I really like the quality of the eye shadows but I feel that every colour in this palette wouldn't suit just one person. Like how Ignite doesn't suit me, Pebble might not suit someone with a darker skin colour. Its a really handy palette to have for travelling and the packaging is really sturdy and pretty.
Let me know if you've tried any other Smashbox products? I haven't really tried very much from it.
