    Smashbox Shapematters Palette

    It's no secret that I'm a makeup lover. So when I saw the Smashbox Shapematters Palette half price at Boots last week I couldn't resist! The palette comes with a brow section, face section and an eye section. The brow section consists of a wax and two brow powders (taupe and soft brown), the face section contains four powders (contour, bronzer, highlight and glow) and in the eyes section there are nine eyeshadows (vanilla, totally nude, champagne, stripped, posh, platinum, sumatra, aubergine and blackout).



    I was most excited to try the face section and also all the eyeshadows because they looked beautiful wearable colours! I wasn't too crazy about the brow powders as the colours are too light for my hair colour and I also feel like I don't have as much control over the product when I'm using a powder. I was a little bit disappointed with the highlight shade as I didn't feel like it was pigmented enough, the contour and bronzer shade make a lovely colour when mixed together however when used alone the contour shade is too greyish for me and the bronzer shade is too much on the warmer side. The shimmer highlight is a light champagne colour so it's perfect for when my tans wearing off and my foundation is lighter.


    What I was really impressed with was the eyeshadows! All 9 shades are absolutely beautiful! The shades are (left to right on the picture above) vanilla, totally nude, champagne, stripped, posh, platinum, sumatra, aubergine and blackout). The eyeshadows are really pigmented and there is a range of matte and shimmer shades, they blend out beautifully and I was so impressed with how longwearing they are. My favourite shades to wear together are posh and aubergine blended out with totally nude. I'll definitely still continue to play around with these eyeshadows as I think the colours are stunning. In all honesty I wish this palette was just fully complete with eyeshadows! But the eyeshadows made the palette worth buying! 

    Let me know how you felt about this palette if you bought it and also if you love any other products from smashbox! See you soon!
