Smashbox Art. Love. Color. Master Class Holiday 2015 Palette

Smashbox Art. Love. Color. Master Class Holiday 2015 Palette ($65.00 for 1.24 oz.) includes 32 eyeshadows, six blushes, and two highlighters. It’s a disappointing palette as the majority of the shades were somewhere between dry, powdery, and dusty (or some combination thereof) with sheerer coverage and a short-wearing formula.

Smashbox Photo Op Mega Eyeshadow Palette

Smashbox Photo Op Mega Palette
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. The palette is one I would recommend using with a primer, as most of the eyeshadows are on the powdery side and just do not perform as well over bare skin as they would over a primer. I liked it, and they were fairly blendable overall, but it’s a better fit for someone who regularly uses primer. It’s also a tremendous value, as you’re getting eight full-sized trios (normally $28 a pop, so $224 in value right there), plus three blushes.

Several of these shades can be found either as permanent trios in the Smashbox range or as part of other trios. 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.

FORMULA SUMMARY | Smashbox Photo Op Eyeshadow is supposed to a “super blendable, velvety formula” that is “highly pigmented” with “lasting wear.” It does have a very soft, velvety feeling, but several are on the powdery side. It’s a formula that is best suited over a primer, as it helps to give it more to hold onto and manages that powderiness better than applying over bare skin.

Petunia is a light-medium, pink-tinged peach with warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had semi-opaque, moderately buildable color payoff with a silky, smooth, though lightly powdery, texture.

Nocturnalis a blackened navy blue with fine, navy blue shimmer. The shimmer is barely noticeable when applied, so it is more of a satin-matte finish eyeshadow in practice. The texture was soft but dusty, and it didn’t blend out as nicely as you’d want for a darker color like this. It wore for seven and a half hours before fading.

Opal is a light, pink-tinged ivory with a frosted sheen. It had semi-sheer pigmentation and was somewhat powdery. It gets lost without a primer, I think. This shade wore well for seven hours.

Sneak Peek: Smashbox Photo Op Mega Palette Photos & Swatches

Smashbox Photo Op Mega Palette
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 #SHAPEMATTERS Palette

Smashbox #SHAPEMATTERS Palette
Smashbox #SHAPEMATTERS Palette

Smashbox #SHAPEMATTERS Palette ($65.00 for 1.06 oz.) includes a brow wax, two brow powders, four face powders, nine eyeshadows, and a double-ended brush. The palette is neutral-to-warm in tone overall, with the contour powder leaning neutral, almost cool in tone. All of the products in the palette had fairly soft, finely-milled textures that were blendable and easy enough to use. The eyeshadows can be a little powdery to work with when applying without a primer for the powder to adhere to, so that would be my bit of advice when working with them: use a primer, though they are workable on bare skin. The more matte highlight shade may look chalky on medium and darker skin tones, and the more shimmery highlight powder has a strong white base and can be stark when not buffed out.

Brow Tech Powders

Taupe is a light-medium taupe brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff with a soft, blendable consistency, but it may be a little too soft for brows (though works nicely as an eyeshadow). It wore for eight hours. Smashbox Soft Brown (P, ) is darker. Viseart Café (P, ) is more shimmery, darker. Too Faced Nudie (P, $16.00) is lighter, more muted. Make Up For Ever M540 Gray Beige (P, $21.00) is darker. Too Faced Cashmere Bunny (P, $16.00) is darker, warmer. Kat Von D Vanish (P, ) is lighter. Divergent Radiant Initiation (LE, ) is lighter. MAC Charcoal Brown (P, $16.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Soft Brown is a medium-dark taupe brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had very nice pigmentation with a smooth, silky texture that blended well on the skin. This one wasn’t too soft or too firm. It wore well for eight hours before fading. MAC Charcoal Brown (P, $16.00) is lighter. Smashbox Taupe (P, ) is darker. Viseart Dark Matte #2 (P, ) is more shimmery, darker. Viseart CafĂ© (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter. Viseart Tabac (P, ) is darker, cooler. Too Faced Cashmere Bunny (P, $16.00) is lighter.

Contour & Highlight Powders

Contour is a medium-dark taupe brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage that was buildable from semi-sheer to semi-opaque and more blendable in practice than it seemed swatched. It wore well for eight hours before fading. Kat Von D Sombre (P, ) is lighter. Too Faced Medium Cocoa (P, ) is warmer. LORAC Light Contour (P, ) is more shimmery. NYX Taupe (P, $5.00) is cooler. MAC Taupe (LE, $21.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Bronze is a medium brown with soft, warmer yellow undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good pigmentation with smooth texture that was slightly firmer in the pan, and I found it a little more difficult to blend out than most of the powders in this palette. It lasted for eight hours on me. MAC Sculpt (P, $16.50) is warmer. MAC Aphrodite’s Shell (LE, $33.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer. Tom Ford Beauty Terra (P, $65.00) is darker. Benefit Hoola (P, $28.00) is warmer. MAC Matte Bronze (P, $25.00) is lighter. Kevyn Aucoin Desert Nights (P, $48.00) is warmer. Colour Pop Skinny Dip (P, $8.00) is lighter.

Dolce and Gabbana Desert (P, $51.00) is lighter, warmer. MAC Matte Bronze (LE, $70.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Highlight is a light yellow with a semi-matte finish–a very subtle sheen that gets lost on my normal-to-dry skin but may be more apparent on those with normal-to-oily skin types. The texture of this one is silky and smooth but excessively powdery to work with, so a little goes a long way and it is better to build up the color slowly. It started to fade after seven hours of wear. LORAC Yellow Highlight (P, ) is darker. Kat Von D Lyric (P, ) is darker, brighter. Dolce and Gabbana Eva (P, $51.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Glow is a muted, buttery gold with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had good color payoff, but it was soft enough to be a little powdery and I felt like the shimmer came away from the powder (the two weren’t binding well), so more shimmer is pronounced on the skin compared to the underlying color–which is better for medium and darker skin tones. The shimmer didn’t emphasize pores for me, and the highlighter lasted for seven and a half hours on me. Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is more shimmery, warmer. Tarte Champagne (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Champagne is a brightened pop of gold with warm, yellow-orange undertones and a metallic sheen. It’s a light-medium, orange-leaning gold with a frosted, metallic sheen.
