Hi loves! I have tried few items from Smashbox, but its my first palette from them, which contains eye shadows. I have to say I'm loving the formula. I have their #shapematters Palette (€64.50), which contains 3 brow products (wax, and 2 different powders), sculpting, bronzing and 2 highlighting powders, and also 9 eye shadows, from mattes to shimmers. The palette also contains a double ended brush and a mirror, which is large (perfect when traveling with it).
I like how compact everything is. The palette itself is to the thicker side, but it contains so many different products that I'm okay with the bulkiness. I love that the wax is covered, so no powder will get into it. I have used the wax few times and it does set my brows for all day. I haven't been using it that much because I don't own that little brush, which I could apply it with. Also the wax is clear, but I like to use tinted gels, which also make my brows look fuller.
The palette contains 2 powders for the brows Taupe and Soft Brown. Most of the times I use Soft Brown to fill in my brows, but sometimes I do need something bit darker and then I have been mixing together Taupe and Blackout (its a black eyeshadow in the palette).
The palette contains 4 face powders, which I do like. I do own their sculpting palette and I really liked it (review), so I already knew I'll be liking these when I first got it.
The contouring shade is perfect for me. Its cool tone brown and leaves a natural shadow under the cheek bones.
The bronzer has matte finish and is easy to blend out, if needed. I like how natural it looks on skin and instantly warms up the complexion.
I have been using the Highlight powder to set my under eye concealer and also for highlighting, if I go in with a more luminizing blush.
The Glow in the palette is a beautiful shimmery highlighter! Its perfect for the days when I want more glow to my complexion.
The eyeshadows in this palette feels so buttery and soft to the touch. I didn't expect these to be so soft and these are also richly pigmented. Its easy to blend these out and these work well together with other shadows. These didn't crease on me, so the staying on powder is amazing.
The first row of eye shadows are all lighter shades. Vanilla is a matte cream shadow, which is perfect to highlighter brow bone.
Next is Totally Nude, which is the best crease color ever and has a matte finish. I love to use it on days when I use very natural makeup. Well I do use it more smoky looks as well to blend out everything.
The last shadow in this row is Champagne, which is gorgeous shimmery shadow. Its perfect to highlight the inner corner of the eye and it looks also beautiful all over the lid.
The first shadow on the second row is Stripped and its peachy matte shadow. I mostly use it in the crease to warm it up.
Posh is shimmery pink shadow, which looks gorgeous all over the lid and I'm wearing it today.
Platinum is another beautiful shimmery eye shadow. Its a beautiful all over the lid color.
The last row has only deeper matte shadows and the first one is Sumatra, which is dark brow.
Aubergine is a deep matte purple and I like to wear it togehter with Posh.
The last shadow in this palette is Blackout, which is matte black. Its pigmented and I have been using it as an eyeliner. It stayed on me all day and didn't smudge.
I love this palette trough and through! All the products have worked out for me really well. The contouring shade is perfect for my skin tone. I think its good for light to medium skin tone, but if you are darker it wouldn't really work out. That would be the only down side.
I picked up mine from Douglas and I'll link it here.
Which is your favorite Smashbox palette?
