First of all, this sample felt like it was a inlet that's usually found in magazines & slightly insulting since other companies send maybe 2-4 little plastic palettes for you to try. This was a sheet. Ok fine whatever, moving on to the colors and quality of the shades themselves. I think the black, brown and the shimmery gold showed up and the rest well, i rubbed it until the paper showed through and ended up with no eyeshadow to be seen on my lids. Not impressed at all. Smashbox disappoints again! Still not as bad as that full exposure mascara, jeez im better off getting cheap drugstore mascara that'll work and not break off my eyelashes.
