Smashbox’s #SHAPEMATTERS Palette allows you to reshape your makeup looks: sculpt cheekbones, perfect your nose, create an arched brow, and enhance your eyes with a bold wash of shadow. Allow the #SHAPEMATTERS inserts, which provide basic shaping steps, guide you to a whole new look. This kit features an array of contouring powders so you can easily emphasize focal points, including the eyes and brows. The face contouring powders are known for their foolproof formulas, and the Photo Op Eye Shadows have won awards for their seamless blendability. Refine and set arches with the Brow Tech Powders and Wax, and then use the included Double-Ended Shadow/Brow Brush to elevate eyes; use one side for brows and the other plush side to sweep on eye shadow.

While I’m not a huge fan of Smashbox (and their Canadian prices are insanely inflated), this looks like a great palette. If the quality is there, this will be a terrific palette to have and I might actually contemplate “buying” it with my SDM points. Will you be reviewing this, Christine?

Okay, I just checked Sephora’s site and the Canadian price isn’t as bad as I was expecting (I thought it would be around 80 bucks but it’s 69 so I may get this instead of the Stila palette I was contemplating getting next – Soul, I think it was….for an extra 9 bucks, this seems a much better value).

I have a lot of SDM points I want to spend too…unfortunately I live in a cosmetics wasteland..none of the SDMs here have much good stuff.
I wish their Murale site took points…you can earn them so I don’t know why you can’t redeem them. And their website & selection sucks, which keeps me going back to Sephora, even with their crappy rewards system.
Anyways…yeah this is something I wouldn’t mind spending my points on if I could find it and the colours work.

Yawn, easy pass. Already have a preferred brow product, the contour shades are mostly useless to me, and the eyeshadows are neutral + a pop of plum, neither of which I’m hurting for in my stash.

I really loved the On the Rocks Palettes that Smashbox released for this past Christmas season, too bad that they didn’t continue in that same direction of bold color + neutrals in one palette.

I like this. But I have never been huge on Smashbox as far as quality is concerned. If this did good on the review( if you are reviewing,Christine?),Id probably give it a go. Otherwise, I’ll wait until it hits stores to check it out.

Interesting idea. Not something I personally want, because I wouldn’t use a lot of it, but I think it’s cool to have everything all together.

This looks like a really great all-in-one kit! I love that they’re including the Photo Op formula in this palette, because the formula of the Double Exposure shadows is just so much more disappointing by comparison. Unfortunately, I’ll probably be passing, because I’m like 99% sure I have all of those shades from the combination of their Master Class III–which I think (?) includes the same contour shades–and this winter’s On the Rocks palette… But hey, I’m still more than happy with those two!

This looks beautiful! The brow colours are too light for me and I’ll wait for the swatches on those contour colours, but at first glance this palette looks really nice. But then again, I am a sucker for these dark/neutral type palettes!

I doubt I’d ever use the brow powders (I plan to go back to black hair in a few months), but the rest is definitely appealing! If the contour/bronzer/highlighter are the same as the trio, this will worth the investment, as that is $45 on its own. Also, the eyeshadows look to be possibly cooler neutrals… That said, UD Naked Smoky, Kat von D Shade & Light palettes, and a small NARS haul will take priority, but since this is permanent, it will find a place in stash at some point. It would make a great travel palette.

Wow, for $65, this palette better get everything right – the brow products, contour, and shadows. If these colors and formulas work for you, then this would be a great palette to reach for in the morning or for travel, since it has almost everything. But if the contour shades don’t work for you, or the shadows perform poorly, then it doesn’t make sense to buy this for $65

Not a bad idea–having all the basic colored powders in one place for convenience (minus blush–but I personally switch up blushes everyday anyway). I’m going to check this out. One of my pet peeves is to open and close a bunch of palettes just to put on a basic look–and to find available surface area for all those open palettes. I sometimes wish I dislike packaging more so I’ll make use of a Z palette–that would be very convenient.

I hardly ever contour, but I can see this palette being very handy, with (almost) everything you’d need in one place. Good for a short vacation as well.

Excited! I still have their Smokebox palette from a few years back and have the Full Exposure palette, which I love! The price seems great for a pallette like this! Might give this a go!

This isn’t something I’d need or use, but it certainly is a full-service face palette. I can see this being great for travel, if the contours and brow colors worked for one’s coloring.

I love that they’ve put in a cooler powder to contour and a warmer one to bronze- too many brands just put multiple warm bronzers in palettes, and often those show up as muddy on my face if I try to do any type of contouring! If the quality is there, this could be a great all-in-one type of powder palette.

I am not a fan of all in one palettes – because the colours just don’t seem to match everyone. There would be a lot of colours that you wouldn’t/couldn’t use. Another round of neutrals? Nope.

I’ve been using the brow tech powder in soft brown to contour my cheekbones for a couple years (weird, I know!) and I really like the eyeshadow colours included, so I hope this is a winner.

Although I wish they would include an option for darker skintones, too.

This looks interesting and it would be great for traveling. Will you be reviewing it Christine? It really depends on how this palette performs. It is a great idea but Smashbox is a hit or miss for me.

Looks like it could be a one palette fits all for travel for fairer skinned folks. It has contour, bronzer, highlighter, brow powder (although nothing specifically for redheads, but warm browns usually work), color you could use as blush, and neutral eyeshadow. Wouldn’t it be great to throw one palette in your travel bag and know you’re covered for just about everthing! (Although that will never be me, I can always dream!!) Unfortunately, or not, I’ve begun assembling a personal pan palette with MAC products such as shaping powders in bone beige and sculpt, highlighting shades such as Accentuate and Empahasize, and paid a lot of money for the large palette with blush inserts to allow me to do thiis!! I know it is recommended to use a light powder sudh as Empahsize to set your undereye concealer/highlighter, but I still find that it creases a little. But the Accentuate with a fan brush ont the tips of the cheekbone is amazing!! Bone Beige is too light to contour, even for NW15, but its a great transition or light crease color for warm tones. This Smashbox one reminds of the Kevin Aucoin one at Sephora which also contains colors for eyeshadow and some darker highlighter that can be used for blush. I wonder which palette is superior? I have been pleased with the few Smashbox products that I have owned. I have loved their lipsticks thru two sets of discontinued shades!! There was a wonderful pinky brown in the original lipstisck, and then they released Be Legendary and replaced all those colors. I never found a dupe for the old favorite, but felll in love with Chai, an amazing tawny peach for redheads, great nude f or brunettes. Then that disappeared and they are recommending the color Honey to replace it. Already have honey, and it is lighter and pinker than Chai. Anyone know of a dupe for Smashboz Be Legendary lipstick in Chai?? Got MAC Siss when it was repromoted last year, but it is grayer! Anyway, if I iabandon my attempts to compile my own contour palette, I’d choose between this and the Aucoin one for versatility! Thanks for the heads up!

Instantly excited as it’s all mattes, which are my thing! But not sure if this would actually be worth getting. Don’t know how necessary it’d be. I’m yet to use Smashbox yet. Look forward to (hopefully!) a review 🙂
