Give your shadow extra staying power with Smashbox’s Photo Finish Lid Primer.

Smashbox Cosmetics

Birchbox Breakdown

We used to get frustrated that smoky eye tutorials didn’t take the spectrum of eye shapes into account (after all, we’re a diverse bunch). Turns out we weren’t alone. After nine years of research examining thousands of faces, the makeup pros at Smashbox narrowed it down to six common eye shapes found throughout the world: almond, round, upturned, downturned, monolid, and hooded. They applied their findings to this universal neutral palette, filled with all the neutrals you (and you and you) will ever need.

How it Works

No more fretting over your crease or lack thereof. This versatile palette has a guide that helps you identify your eye shape and master three flattering looks for it (day, night, and defined). The top has seven shimmery shades and on the bottom, you’ll find seven matte hues—ranging from nudes to blacks. Oh, and there’s also a double-sided brush, a built-in mirror, and a travel-size Full Exposure Mascara.

How to Use

Follow the step-by-step instructions in the eye shape chart, depending on your preferred eye look, or sweep one of the lighter shades across your lids for a no-fuss finish.

Terrible sample!!
Sampled

I am not sure if my sample was defective or if the cold weather did something.. There was hardly any product on the card so you couldn't build up the color.. a HUGE waste of a sample.. When I opened my box this month I was like.. where the heck is the samples? I mean my box was nearly empty. Very disappointed in Birchbox this month. Just awful. I can't really use anything in my box except one. The rest I will pass one to someone I guess but will throw away this "Palette" Sample Palette??? I wish they would have just send us one color and had a little pot of it so we could try it for real!!

Not good.

I like the product, but I am extremely dissatisfied with the packaging. Very cheap. Shadows on a piece of paper. Not easy to sample... :(

Meh.

This was my Beauty Extra and it was...not very extra. I would have preferred a smaller selection of colors to sample, but more product. This card has a nice selection of shadows (matte and shimmer) but not a ton of product. Not very thrilling, and I'm glad this didn't take away from my actual samples.

Stays on Great
Sampled

This is a great product. The eyeshadow stays on and is super glittery. I would recommend this eyeshadow. The glitter does get everytwhere though when you are putting it on.

Great palette
Sampled

Colors are gorgeous and very easy to apply and blend. The sheer colors build nicely as well. Great collection! I wasn't crazy about the sample it was messy and there was hardly enough shadow to do both eyes.

Love the colors
Sampled

I really love the colors in this palette, unfortunately it was all on a card which did not have very much of each color on the swatch. I dont feel there was enough sample to make a good judgement call for this product.

My new favorite!
Purchased

I generally stick with a few reliable products when it comes to makeup (before this I owned one shadow with 3 colors on it), but this palette is spectacular!! The matte shadows work perfectly with my eye color and skin, and are much more lush than what I as using, while still looking natural. Plus, it doesn't rub off on the black winged eyeliner I wear, which is a huge plus. Other shadows tend to dull the black line but these stay put. I haven't used the shimmers that much, but I am loving the range available.

All in One

Finally one compact to manage multiple looks. High quality brush to facilitate shadowing and contouring. Wide range of mate and shimmer. Usually there are some you will never use but each palette is worthy of many looks. Great travel compact.
