I recently grabbed this Smashbox palette ‘cuz I was really impressed with the 6 shades and wanted to try it on!
I’m always on the hunt for great products that can simplify your makeup routine (and mine also, to be quite honest) and I have become OBSESSED with this lil’ palette.
While I’m typically not a fan of pre-made palettes, this one made the cut and is totally #twochicksapproved.
First, the colour selection is on point (definitely not for every skin tone, but if you’re light- med/dark, it’ awesome) and I LOVE the texture range. By that I mean, the 4 powders (Highlight, Contour, Bronze and Blush) are Matte and the only shimmers are the ones in the middle highlight shades. This is important because in order to create definition, we always recommend using matte powders first and then STRATEGICALLY applying your shimmers.
Second, I’m impressed with the size of the pans in the palette. They are small enough to fit into a compact but large enough to use the proper brushes without accidentally dipping into the neighbouring shades.
And, lastly, I really like the pigment load. It is consumer friendly (meaning an amateur makeup artist can apply and blend it, no problem) while also being completely build-able for those Pros looking to create more dramatic looks.
