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, which comes complete with a guide to help 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.

Amazing palette!
Purchased

I love this palette! It has so many neutral shades and shades to make the perfect smokey eye! I'm obsessed with palettes and this has definitely become one of my go-to favorites! I also really love the eye shadow brush that comes with it! Great value and wonderful shadows!

Love this palette!
Purchased

I own one other Smashbox eyeshadow palette, so I knew I would love this one just as much! And I do! This is a great palette to use for daytime eyes and also for transitioning into the night. Makes a beautiful smokey eye! This is a great palette to travel with, since it has all the colors you need in one. It does has some fallout, but since the colors are darker, that is to be expected. I'm not fond of Smashbox mascara, but that does not deter me from using the palette. I highly recommend this product! Thank you, Birchbox!

Nothing Special
Sampled

There are a lot of neutral palettes out there, and this is also one. The sample wasn't really sufficient to try it out, but from what I was able to swatch it was not very pigmented and not unique among neutral palettes. It may be better for other skin tones, but I have fair, pink-toned skin and there was nothing in this palette that was really ideal for me.

Poor quality
Sampled

I had purchased this palette over christmas from Sephora and the quality was terrible. Terrible pigmentation on both the matte and shimmery colors. The shimmery ones had glitter and when you tried to apply it, only the glitter showed up. I tried it for several days hoping that I could like it. I ended up returning it. That being said, I have heard nothing but great things about this pallette which leads me to believe maybe there was something wrong with mine.

If you lover matte and shimmer
Purchased

I was a little disappointed by this palette. I was expecting a little more oomph. There are basically neutral shimmers and there matte counterparts. I found the shimmers too shimmery and I wish there was more blending ability with these. Regardless it's still a pallet that I can use everyday

Good color
Purchased

These shadows have great color, but you need many layers to get a very glittery glam look. But they blend well and stay on also!

Perfect colors
Purchased

I love this palette. I just hate the brushes that come with it. I have my own brushes that I prefer to use.

The colors are nice and I like that they shadow doesn't make those lines that cheap shadow does after wearing it all day.

Love this

The matte's are a great compliment to any eyeshadow routine. The shimmers are stand alone great. I went in to buy one of the naked pallettes and ended up getting this instead for neutrals. I've had it for about a year and tend to use it every other day (I did end up with the Naked 3 pallette which is not similar to this on at all and LOVE it) Great pallette to own, worth it!

Love the colors

The lighter shade shimmers don't have much pigment but I am really happy with the pallet as a whole.
