Matte

Smashbox Matte Cover Shot Eye Palette ($29.00 for 0.27 oz.) is a small, travel-friendly palette that features all matte eyeshadows in warmer, neutral hues. The formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with a “beyond blendable” texture. The mattes in the palette are decent to good, but they definitely beg for a primer to perform well; without, they had a tendency to sheer out, apply a bit unevenly, and had moderate fallout during wear. The wear time varied from shade to shade–six to seven hours–but all eight had softer textures and none felt firm/stiff in the pan.

Softlight

Smashbox Softlight Cover Shot Eye Palette ($29.00 for 0.27 oz.) is a small, travel-friendly palette that features a smoky take on “soft” shades of gold, peach, and brown. The formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with a “beyond blendable” texture. Some of the eyeshadows have a dustier or thinner texture, which can make them prone to sheering out (and difficult to maintain their intensity) or fade faster than other shades.

This was the worst palette in the bunch, as it did not work well even over primer–the formula was just too dusty and dry. The eyeshadows ran together, sheered out, and faded within five hours of wear. No matter whether I used two shades or five shades, it looked like the same faded, shimmery beige eye.

Metallic

Smashbox Metallic Cover Shot Eye Palette ($29.00 for 0.27 oz.) is a small, travel-friendly palette that features a smoky take on earth shades of brown, plum, green, and gray. What I liked about this palette was that each well was large enough for regular eyeshadow brushes, and there was enough product across each that nothing felt skimpy. It actually is a more realistic amount of product, where one can finish and work through it, particularly for those of us with less modest stashes!

The formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with a “beyond blendable” texture. Some of the eyeshadows have a dustier or thinner texture, which can make them prone to sheering out (and difficult to maintain their intensity) or fade faster than other shades. While it might be labeled “Metallic,” the eyeshadows were more faded and less metallic than they were frosty–definitely shimmery but most lacked the reflective quality of more metallic (or foiled) eyeshadows to my eye. The quality of the eyeshadows was decent to good, but I didn’t love it as a palette–it wasn’t as cohesive or as effortless to put together a look with the shades, as they had a tendency to muddy together.

Obvi

Smashbox Obvi Be Legendary Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light-medium pink with cool, blue undertones and a white base paired with a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage that applied evenly but had a tendency to sit in lip lines, so it didn’t look as smooth on the lips as it could have.

The Be Legendary formula is supposed to have “rich, vibrant color” that is long-wearing and moisturizing. It wasn’t as glossy as other shades, but it wasn’t matte either; I liked that, as it was hydrating and comfortable to wear but did not slide around. This shade wore well for four hours on me and was moisturizing over time.

Ablaze

Smashbox Ablaze Cover Shot Eye Palette ($29.00 for 0.27 oz.) is a small, travel-friendly palette that features warm hues of copper with both matte and shimmery finishes. What I liked about this palette was that each well was large enough for regular eyeshadow brushes, and there was enough product across each that nothing felt skimpy. It actually is a more realistic amount of product, where one can finish and work through it, particularly for those of us with less modest stashes!

The formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with a “beyond blendable” texture. Some of the eyeshadows have a dustier or thinner texture, which can make them prone to sheering out (and difficult to maintain their intensity) or fade faster than other shades. Overall, the majority of the shades were very pigmented, wore seven to eight hours, and blended out without much work. I liked that this particular palette had both shimmery and matte finishes, and there were some deeper shades to add contrast, so this seemed like it would be much more versatile than some of the other color combinations in their new palette series.
