Nude Beach

Smashbox Nude Beach Be Legendary Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium coral with warm, orange undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a lightly creamy texture that had some slip but wasn’t too thick or too thin on the lips.

The Be Legendary formula is supposed to have “rich, vibrant color” that is long-wearing and moisturizing. It could have applied more evenly, as I had subtle streaking around the edges or if I pressed my lips together, and a bit of color pulled into my lip lines. This shade lasted for four hours on me and was hydrating.

Smoky

Smashbox Smoky 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. The formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with a “beyond blendable” texture. All eight shades had good pigmentation, were fairly blendable, and wore for seven to eight hours. Some shades were a touch dusty, which may have resulted in a bit of fallout during application or shorter-wear, but overall, the palette was easy to use, and the colors chosen make sense within the theme.

Skinny Jeans

Smashbox Skinny Jeans Legendary Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark blue with fine pearl. The pearl is less obvious once applied, but there is a subtle sheen and luminosity to the finish from it.

The Be Legendary formula is supposed to have “rich, vibrant color” that is long-wearing and moisturizing. The brand described it as a “sheery navy,” which is more accurate than the more generic, formula-wide description, as it had more medium coverage that was buildable up to semi-opaque pigmentation. The texture had some slip, which made it comfortable to wear, but it applied unevenly, gathered in lip lines, and was hard to keep from sliding around (though it didn’t actually feather on me). This shade wore well for four hours on me and stained my lips bluish.

Action

Smashbox Action Be Legendary Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, medium purple with subtle, warmer undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly opaque color payoff that went on evenly for the most part; there was some color that seemed to migrate into my lip lines slightly.

The Be Legendary formula is supposed to have “rich, vibrant color” that is long-wearing and moisturizing. The consistency was smooth, creamy, and non-tacky but still emollient enough to glide across the lips with ease. It was comfortable to wear for the four and a half hours it lasted, and I felt like it kept my lips hydrated.

Golden Hour

Smashbox Golden Hour Cover Shot Eye Palette ($29.00 for 0.27 oz.) is a small, travel-friendly palette that features a warm, gold and plum-themed color scheme across eight shades. 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. The eyeshadows in this palette had good to great pigmentation, softer, slightly dustier textures that were blendable but a couple shades were more prone to sheering out without a primer underneath. It did seem like a formula that I would not wear without a primer, but it was workable on bare skin. The wear was between seven and eight hours, depending on the shade, which is about average for me. The biggest issue I had when I worked without a primer was just that the formula was more prone to fallout during the application.

The palette should release officially on December 7th.

Sneak Peek: Smashbox Cover Shot Eye Palettes Photos & Swatches

Smashbox Cover Shot Eye Palettes
Smashbox Cover Shot Eye Palettes

Smashbox Cover Shot Eye Palettes ($29.00 for 0.27 oz.) recently had an early access, one-day release but will be released again shortly (12/2 on Smashbox’s website at the very least) and are part of spring’s launches. There are seven variations, and they are a slim, compact palette (they actually contain more than it seems like they would, given their size). I’ll be working through them and hope to have some reviews sooner rather than later.

Check out swatches of ALL seven palettes!
