We used to get frustrated that smoky eye tutorials didn't take the spectrum of eye shapes into account (after all, were 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.
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!!
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.2
I like the product, but I am extremely dissatisfied with the packaging. Very cheap. Shadows on a piece of paper. Not easy to sample... :(3
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!5
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!4
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 everyday4
Beautiful to look at, useless to use. No color payoff at all unless you wet them. What a gigantic waste of money!2
Received this palette and so far loving it! It's great and super pigmented so the colors are truly bold. Will definitely purchase more of Smashbox in the future.5
I bought this not too long ago, and I was so excited, but I was extremely disappointed. The colors do not show up very well.3
this palette is EVERYTHING! gives a great variety of great daytime and nighttime looks.. great color payoff, great shimmer, great matte, everything is great!5
