Smashbox Photo Op Mega Palette
Smashbox Photo Op Mega Palette ($69.00 for 1.06 oz.) includes eight eyeshadow trios (so 24 eyeshadows), plus three blushes. There are a variety of finishes from mattes to shimmers, cooler and warmer shades.
Several of these shades can be found either as permanent trios in the Smashbox range or as part of other trios, so if time runs out (as in it sells out), I may still review to capture some of those permanent shades. The following trios are included: Multi-Flash (Naked, Crisp, Doe), Filter (Vanilla, Sable, Sumatra), Dark Room (Opal, Granite, Blackout), Cover Shoot (Flirt, Dusk, Haze), Skybox (Sky, Steel, Nocturnal). These are the shades that are in this palette but can be found in other trios (but not together): Golden Orchid, Obsidian, Amethyst, Parfait, Ambient. I will try my best to review this in a timely manner, but the palette stack (about 12) is daunting at the moment and this being mega-sized may mean it doesn’t get tested quickly enough.
At the very least, here are some swatches!

Smashbox Double Exposure Palette
This innovative eye palette features coated pigments formulated with coating technology to create multiple effects when wet, allowing the shadows to transform in one of four ways—allowing these 14 shadows to become 28 shades in just one palette. When wet, these colors amp up vibrancy, become deeper, turn metallic, or create sparkle for endless, customizable eye looks.
Apply eye shadows with the foolproof, double-ended brush. The domed in brush absorbs just the right amount of water for impactful color while the angled side creates a precise line when wet, a diffused line when dry. Then elevate looks for your eye shape with the #SHAPEMATTERS insert, featuring how-to’s for six shapes. Top off your looks with the included, Full Exposure Mascara, in a bonus, five-week supply.
