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.

Wow you did so much work on this one!! I love this palette. Found almost every shade pigmented, buttery and easy to blend though some did kick up a lot of powder. I always like reading other views on stuff and seeing the differences. Thanks for the hard work again.

Really no. I think since I’m paler maybe the coverage is better. Not sure. I don’t always use primer and I have pretty dry skin. Makeup is definitrly an art not science. Thanks for the great reviews.

I swatched a few shades in store yesterday, wasn’t too impressed. Your review confirms it. It’s an absolute shame, as I love the way they laid out the color combos, so it’s easy to figure out eye looks, the colors are pretty, and some are unique (Spruce, Zoom, Steel). Sob 🙁 BTW, what is that lipstick you have on ? I don’t see it described

Oof! Man, I am glad I skipped over this in favor of the KvD palette! I’m loving the Mi Vida Loca, especially some of the warmer shades (unlike the vast majority, I don’t actually have many warm palettes, because I only started wearing those shades in the last year… Oops).

I’m still sad to see this get such a disappointing review, considering my love for the Master Class III & last year’s Ulta exclusive palette. I feel like they definitely sacrificed the usual quality for quantity with this palette–I have the shade Zoom, & mine is not that chalky/lacking in pigmentation. :/

It definitely seems out of character for their usual Photo Op formula! I know the Full Exposure palettes have been known to be more on the powdery/overly glittered side, but it’s sad to see that happening to the formula I actually like. Hopefully this is just one of those disappointing holiday flukes, like with TF.

The intense labor on this one reinforces that some of your job is agony, not ecstasy. So, I hate to ask you a question about something you already have tutu red yourself with…. But, since the product amounts are given in aggregate, rather than individually, it is impossible to tell. It seems that the layout is by shade family, with the coordinated cheek product in that line. But it also looks as if two e/s shades are bigger (more base-y) than two others (more accent colorish.). Is that true, or is it an optical illusion? This even makes MUG look redeemed. I’m sure some folks will make it work…and others might have to! Never been a big fan of SmashBox e/s, and usually talk myself out of most of their products. Oh, yeah, forgot to snag that Mauvey-plummy liner from them. Swatched well and played well with others. It’s an EL family company, now, right?

Yep, the eyeshadows come in two sizes! They’re just slightly smaller, but it does almost look like an optical illusion, lol!

When I first spotted this behemoth at Sephora a month or so back, I did swatch quite a few of the eyeshadows in it, and was so NOT impressed. They felt powdery and cheap in quality. I knew back then that it would be by some truly bizarre twist that this palette would ever get any high marks! Yeah, it’s THAT bad. The only exception is for the cheek products!

Wow…this is surprisingly disappointing. I normally have good luck with Smashbox’s Photo Op formula and had been debating purchasing it for ages, perhaps giving in during the Sephora VIB Rouge 20% off. I’ll probably pass and opt for more Viseart palettes!

For me this deserves more than a C rating. I think all the blushes and highlighters are great and the majority of the eyeshadows are really good too. But that’s just me of course 🙂

This really surprises me. I had swatched a good amount of this palette at Sephora (though not every shade), and it seemed really buttery and pigmented. A couple shades were a bit chunky, like that gold shade.

I’m glad I didn’t buy it then, as it looks like it’s not as good in practical application. Money saved for other goodies.

Thank you so much–this review was quite helpful! Glad I read this because this palette was on my list and I was on the fence about it. This helped make my decision easier. 😉

Question–what is your pick for the best eyeshadow palette this season so far? On an unrelated note, between Viseart and ByTerry, which would you go with?

I bought this based on the quality of last years but have only used it twice so far. It produced nice looks but fallout was an issue and I usualy buy higher quality as I dont want to deal with that at this point. My advice is do your eyes first!~! A good Canadian brand that has seasonal collections is Lise Watier available online to the US are you familiar with it, buttery gorgeous eye colours and liners. Thanks for the thorough review disappointing but it happens

This was a mammoth review – thank you so much Christine. But what a disaster this palette is overall.
Smashbox should have just taken their A and B rating eye shadows and made a much smaller, but better quality palette instead of one that is filled with failures or semi failures.
There are some unique colours here like Gypsy. Very pretty; yet there are also lots of dupes of each other: the two golds and two very similar teals. I think you have just saved a few people some money here Christine.
By the way – when I was checking the dupe list for a few of the colours, I came across that BEAUTIFUL colour Strip by UD – which is now, apparently discontinued. What a lovely, gorgeous colour that is – now why isn’t that colour in the Spectrum palette or Vice 4? What a shame.

Wow, the not-very-good swatches were just the tip of the iceberg with this one! Even ones that looked like they might be ok were horrible in practice. I guess it might make a nice wall decoration?

I don’t really enjoy mega palettes so I don’t think I would have bought this even if it had gotten an A+ from you, but jeez, this really did look so gorgeous in the pan! 🙁 I loved how the colors were arranged and everything so I was hoping it would be one of the better mega palettes to be thrown into the growing holiday pile. You’d think that for $65 they’d perform at a B+ or higher. Sucks that you sometimes don’t get what you pay for in high-end cosmetics land!

I really wanted this palette after seeing how pretty it looked but thanks to your review you definitely saved me some money. I’m gonna go for the latest MUFE palette that you gave an A to 🙂
