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.

Rant and
Rave

Tell us what you love and hate about...

Make Up For Ever

The rant? No names!! I need names! I can’t remember numbers at all as product names. Otherwise, I love their more streamlined product ranges (one type of eyeshadow, divided into finishes, for example) that offer lots of shade variety. I also like that their base products are more inclusive than the average brand.

Unfiltered I

NARS Unfiltered I Cheek Palette ($59.00 for 0.72 oz.) includes six powder blushes. It’s a new, limited edition palette for spring, which should officially release soon. There is another palette–Unfiltered II–which features cooler, softer shades and leans pinker overall, while this one is bolder, richer, and warmer across the board. I think there’s a good mix of finishes, lights and darks, and like the addition of one cooler shade that still makes sense with the other shades.
