Smashbox Covershot Review

Hey Guys,

Something you can learn about me. I am both a lipstick hoarder and an eye shadow junkie.
Whenever there is a new palette and it screams my name I probably own it.
This set of palettes however I bought because who it is a collaboration with one of my favourite actors ever Shay Mitchell. She is an actor from Pretty Little Liars.
There are seven palettes in the collection, I now own five of them the other two may eventually sneak their way into my collection.

Let me just tell you each palette retails for £24.
I got mine at boots but the only other stockist in the UK is the SmashBox website itself.
At the end of the post I'll link both sites so you can chose where you want to get it from.


The five I own are soft light, matte eyes, 
metallic eyes
golden hour and ablaze.

Softlight






Soft light is for those that need a natural eyes.
This is a beautiful palette.
I use this on days I do not want a lot of intensity.
Do not get me wrong they are so pigmented.
Spectacle is a duo chrome.
I love them all makes a perfect eye look.


Matte Eyes




This palette has everything you need for a starter kit.
It has a great mix of matte colours.
Both Publisher and angles is what I use in my crease.
I love supermodel all over the lid.



Metallic Eyes




This is the metallic palette.
If you owned the metallic and matte palette you'd be set for life.
Look how stunning these are.
They are so pigmented.
I am in love with all these shades.
Paired with the matte palette you can make so many looks.
Both liquid and Booty Call are my favourite shades from this palette.



Golden Hour






This palette was the first one I was drawn too,
The perfect mix of mattes and shimmers.
I adore these shades.
This palette is stunning.
I travel with this one the most.
This can create a number of stunning looks.



Ablaze



The final palette is my favourite.
I am so into this seasons pink toned look.
I love that it also has some more peachy/ orange shades.
I have used this palette non-stop.
This was the last palette I bought,
I cannot wait to use this in a ootd post.


So my thoughts about these palettes.
They are definitely worth the £24.
As that works out to £3 a shadow.
They are so pigmented,
The quality is amazing and high.
They blend amazingly.
Each palette is unique with colour selection.
I believe Shay did an amazing idea.
