  1. Shades of fame – a really great title :)

    I’m usually not a fan of eyeshadow pallettes, but this one has a nice variety of colors.  I’m not familiar with the Smashbox eyeshadow formula though…

      @GUSnail Some of their singles are good quality, but I’ve heard that their palettes are hit or miss. It seems like many brands have this problem; Stila for example (they have many nice singles, but the palettes are garbage). Anyhow, I suggest swatching first, or waiting for blogger reviews. (Thank you bloggers!)

    I always felt as though smashbox was a waste of money, they have improved their formulas a little bit for their eyeshadows, but I find they break very easily!

       @Stephanietps I never had that problem O: I am probably the biggest clutz and have dropped my two palettes from them countless times and had no trouble.

       @Stephanietps You know, I honestly dig Smashbox, but I can’t quite justify their price point so I don’t have a lot of stuff from them.  They’re on par or more than UD with most of their stuff, and I’d rather buy another UD item.

    For me this palette was an impulsive buy, but I’m glad I got it because I really love it so far.

    The new palette is gorgeous.  I happened to stumble upon it at Macy’s a couple weeks ago, and the colors swatched beautifully on my hand.  In person, I thought it was a touch better suited for warm complexions, but there were a lot of really great shades in there that would make it worthwhile for anyone.

    I have the palette and it is super nice!  The blue and the coral are a nice wash and are super easy to wear.  I love the whole palette but I am not a fan of their primer.  By itself it creases on me in 30mins, when I put shadow over it the shadow only lasts an hour or two before it gets messy :c

    I swatch this palette every time I go to sephora! The shades are beautiful & buttery soft. The turquoise & orange shades are my favorite!

  8. I looked at the picture and all I saw were older Nars eyeshadow colours.. pacific = tropic..remember that beautiful colour with the tragic fallout?  Praline = Fez, Safari = Night Porter, Mocha = Mekong, etc…
