Petal Metal

Smashbox Petal Metal Cover Shot Eye Palette ($28.00 for 0.21 oz.) contains a mix of rose, copper, and brown with six shades having a metallic finish and two shades with a matte finish. I think they did a good job with various depths and finishes, but it will yield more of a monochromatic look, so I expect the palette to work best for someone who likes soft and deeper rose gold but isn’t looking for tons of contrast or differences in actual colors. If you tend to use your shimmers with a dampened brush (or that’s no hardship), I think the palette will stretch even further as a few of the shimmers really shined when used that way.

Fresh Stem

Fresh Stem is a very light peach with a hint of pink and gold shimmer that gave it a metallic finish. It had opaque color payoff in a single layer, but it appeared significantly lighter swatched and applied than it did in the pan (likely due to how much shimmer was in it). The eyeshadow’s texture was soft and blendable without being powdery or too firmly-pressed in the pan. This shade wore well for eight hours on me.

Opal Rose

Opal Rose is a soft pink with a pink-to-gold shifting pearl paired with a metallic finish. The eyeshadow was richly pigmented with a smooth, almost cream-like texture that was easy to apply to bare skin and blend out as it adhered extremely well without need of primer. It lasted for eight hours on me before I noticed any fading.

Nude Rose

Nude Rose is a soft brown with warm, rosy undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was opaque, while the texture was soft, velvety, and finely-milled without being powdery or dry. It applied easily onto the skin and blended out with little effort. The eyeshadow stayed on well for seven and a half hours on me.

Rose Quartz

Rose Quartz is a soft, rosy copper with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had medium coverage, which only built up well when used with a dampened brush, and then it was opaque, so as long as you’re someone comfortable with that application technique, I don’t think it would be a deal-breaker. The texture was drier and more loose-pressed in the pan. This shade wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

Floral Support

Floral Support is a rich, deep copper-red with warm undertones and a metallic finish. The consistency was soft, blendable, and easy to work with as it wasn’t too densely nor too firmly pressed in the pan. It had opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly to bare skin. The color stayed on well for eight hours.

Rose Rocked

Rose Rocked is a soft, medium rosy-pink with warm undertones and a metallic finish. The eyeshadow was more loosely pressed in the pan, so there was some excess product kicked up in the pan. It had semi-opaque pigmentation and seemed to be slightly better in payoff if I really pressed and pulled the color onto my lid instead of just patting it on. Alternatively, if I used it with a dampened brush, then it went on with opaque coverage and still blended out easily. This shade wore well for eight hours before I noticed any fading.

XO, Vlada

XO, Vlada is a deep, rosy copper with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic finish. The pigmentation was fantastic, while the eyeshadow had a smooth, cream-like texture that made it easy to apply, helped it adhere well to bare skin, and still blended out nicely. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before it started to fade.

Coffee Blossom

Coffee Blossom is a dark brown with subtle, warm red undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff that was buildable to full coverage in two layers. It was fairly blendable along the edges but did take a bit more effort to really diffuse the color out. This shade lasted well for seven and a half hours on m e.

After debating with myself over the past several days as to which of this spring’s coppery palettes I would get, I picked this one. Based off of your swatches, I could tell that this one was a solid winner! And so I bought it last night! I do believe I will enjoy using this palette, because I can take it warmer (even red hot!) but also cooler, all while staying within the coppery range. Add some teal or purple liner and BOOM!

I swatched it at Ulta and was so tempted but I have so many warm palettes. I do think this one is a nice size for travelling and I could tell from Christine’s swatches and my finger swatches that it would score nicely. I am sure you will love it and it will look beautiful on you. Post a pic to IG when you use it. I need a little enabling and Tammy shouldn’t have to do all the work, LOL!!

I hope you review the Pinks and Palms palette! It’s calling my name but I’ve been holding off, awaiting your review!

No plans to review at this time, sorry! I have a bunch of other eye category stuff of greater priority right now.

No worries at all! Thank you for letting me know 🙂 !! This just gives me the go ahead to buy it and test it out myself!! LOL

Lori I brought the Pinks & Palms palette during the VIB sale I and wasn’t impressed. The pigmentation wasn’t that great and the shadows faded rather quickly. This was my first Smashbox eye shadow palette and I’m going return it.

I think this is a really solid offering from Smashbox – if you don’t have Naked 3, this is fantastic. Those beautiful rosy shades would work so well either alone or in conjunction with cooler toned shades. Love your eye look too.

I absolutely love this palette!!! Even after a long day the colors look great. I didn’t have any problems using Rose Quartz dry over the wet n wild photofocus primer, but I’m going to try it wet to see if it works better.

As soon as I saw this got good marks, I picked it up. The metallics swatched beautifully in store. So excited to try it out!

This one is not for me; these are my colors but I’m ‘full up’ a few times over; and, as a standalone palette that I’d take on travel, it’s too monochromatic to be useful.
I’m hoping this signals Smashbox doing better on eyeshadows in general. Those trios of earlier this year were so disappointing, and I had the Ablaze Sure Shot palette but ended up tossing it because the pigmentation was annoyingly mediocre. (Had I seen Temptalia’s review in advance? Yes I had. Did I think that maybe it would be ok anyway; yes, yes I did. Have I learned the lesson yet again? Yes)
