Smashbox Photo Op Mega Eyeshadow 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.

Charlotte Tilbury Medium/Dark Filmstar Bronze & Glow

Charlotte Tilbury Medium/Dark Filmstar Bronze & Glow ($68.00 for 0.52 oz.) is a new, permanent take on the often-raved about Filmstar Bronze & Glow that’s deeper and warmer. I think the texture is a bit more refined–smoother, more finely-milled, and forgiving on the skin–in the original, but this is still quite good. Both shades are good or better pigmentation that was buildable, while they were easily blended out on the skin. I had no problem wearing both powders all day long. I hope the brand will come out with an even darker version and/or cooler-toned varieties.
