Bargain alert: Smashbox Beauty To Go Eye Palette

Attention all make-up junkies, Smashbox are re-promoting their last year eyeshadow palette! 

“This mega eye palette of 12 shadows, 4 cream eye liners and a mini Photo Finish Lid Primer creates an endless array of eye looks using our exclusive step by step Get-the-look book complete with countless ways to wear these gorgeous shades.”

I was fortunate enough to get it last Xmas on the last minute (got sold fast everywhere) and used it ever since. When I’ve seen it in the shop, i thought that its a different one, being distracted by the black packaging (mine is bright pink) but no, same colors. I suppose if it works why change.

It has a good mixture of matt and shimmery colors, from nudes to deep funky ones. Also the top row (1-4) are eyeshadow bases.

Colors swatched:

What do you think? Pretty, huh? The colors are more intense in real life and not as shimmery like in the photos (blame the flash).

The eyeshadow primer is very good too, i think i like it better then the Urban Decay one. The main reason for that, is the coverage of the primer. It acts like an eye lid concealer, evening out the eye lid color with the rest of the face (sometimes the lids can be darker/lighter then the rest of the face). Resistance wise, it acts just brilliant. Had the eyeshadows + primer on when i went dancing and they didn’t budge.

Another nice part of the palette is the little step by step “look book” with 13 different eye looks to create, from natural day to day to evening smokey eyes. I found them very easy to follow, especially if you are a beginner.

It retails at 39,00 euro, which its very good value for 12 good quality eyeshadows and 4 eye liners. A single Smashbox eyeshadow its usually about 18 euro, so you are saving a few pennies.

Looking forward to hear your thoughts on it :).
