press-sampleSmashbox Golden Hour Cover Shot Eye Palette has quickly climbed the ranks to my favorite from the line.  The palette features “better than neutral” shades that make the eyes stand out, but in a natural-looking way.  There’s something about these colors that adds a youthful, romantic glow.  I’m always a fan of mixing mattes and frosts, and this palette features that mix of finishes that I adore.  Fans of neutral eye makeup looking for a subtle change from the ordinary will love this works-with-everything palette.

press-sampleThe Smashbox Bold Cover Shot Eye Palette is called “transformative and electrifying” by the brand.  The key thing to remember when looking at this vivid rainbow of shadow colors, this palette is not intended to be used as accent colors with other eye makeup.  Don’t be intimidated!  You’d be amazed at how different your eye makeup can look if you incorporate just one bold shade as a liner or outer corner accent.

press-sampleThe smoky eye is a long-time favorite, especially for evening events.  Let’s just face it that traditional smoky eye using neutrals, grays, and blacks won’t stand out in a crowd.  The Smashbox Smoky Cover Shot Eye Palette adds a special twist to this stand-by evening eye makeup look.  Exotic spicy shades have been mixed with more traditional smoky shades to truly add a bit of zing.  This palette truly delivers a modern, sexy look.

press-sampleMy kids are in a new school this year, and their day starts really early. After a solid decade of waking up naturally, my family is now alarm-dependent and literally up before the sun.  The only perk to this new schedule is every weekday I have the pleasure of watching the sun rise, and in the desert that event is a feast of color.  In fact, the colors I see on the horizon each morning remind me of the Smashbox Ablaze Cover Shot Eye Palette.  This palette is “desert inspired” according to the Smashbox website.  I’ll take it one step further and say it’s clearly inspired by a vivid desert sunrise.

Feast your eyes on the colors of the desert!  When the sun rises over the dark mountains, regal reds light up rugged rocky paths.  All of the colors I see each morning are represented in Ablaze.  It’s truly an amazing palette for those who love the colors of the desert terrain when the sun rises or sets.  Swatches shown above: (at top) Relaxed (a pale sandy beige) and Moccasin (a golden peach) are the base colors in this palette.  (At bottom) from left to right at bottom are Siesta (rust), Nirvana (soft red), Delirious (deep metallic brown), Torch (orange), Throwback (rust), and Dark Horse (deep coffee).
