Smashbox Metallic Cover Shot Eye PaletteSmashbox Metallic 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. 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. Some of the eyeshadows have a dustier or thinner texture, which can make them prone to sheering out (and difficult to maintain their intensity) or fade faster than other shades. While it might be labeled "Metallic," the eyeshadows were more faded and less metallic than they were frosty--definitely shimmery but most lacked the reflective quality of more metallic (or foiled) eyeshadows to my eye. The quality of the eyeshadows was decent to good, but I didn't love it as a palette--it wasn't as cohesive or as effortless to put together a look with the shades, as they had a tendency to muddy together.
