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.

Love this palette

This palette can be used both wet and dry, which gives many options depending on the look you're going for. A great neutral palette with lots of potential.

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

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!

Amazing!
Purchased

Before purchasing I read a lot of reviews on this product. A lot of girls had claimed that the pallete wasnt good at all, the brush was too rough, and the shimmer was much more like glitter. I disagree. The colors are beautiful. The application even with the brush it comes with, went on remarkably well. The shimmer eye shadows are amazing. The first time rocking this out in public I received three compliments in an hour! Not too bad for a palatte that many have called the worst! My only complaint is that the eye shadow shimmer fallout while applying even with eye primer, is a bit annoying. Instead of my usual routine of foundation first then eye shadow, now its eyeshadow first then Foundation. The plus is that there is No eye shadow shimmer fallout as youre wearing it throughout the day.

LOVED!
Purchased

I've never owned Smashbox products. I absolutely loved this set of eyeshadow. I like the earthy natural colors. It also seemed to have lasting power too. I haven't tried the sample mascara that came with it yet tho. That was a bonus. I will definitely buy more Smashbox products in the future.
