I was lucky enough to be notified of a special offer taking place at Boots – half price of the new Smashbox #shapematters palette.
It was a no brainer purchase really. I was long overdue a new contour kit plus you can never have too many eyeshadows.
When the palette arrived I was head over heels. The packaging itself was exciting and I couldn’t wait to use it.
Lucky for me, I had a birthday dinner the following evening so this was a perfect opp to get it out and play. First impression; the eyeshadow colours are gorgeous and perfect for AW15. Really warm colours and when applying, they just glided on to my eye – amazing.
I then started to apply my contour – the highlight powder was nice although not overly noticeable, I think you’d still need a little something underneath like a cream highlight or concealer. I used the brown contour which again, applied and blended really well. I’ve not used the bronzer yet as it looks a tad dark for me.
My favourite part of this palette is the shimmer. It’s just wow. It’s not messy and actually stayed on – such a beautiful shade too.
This is definitely one to have on your Christmas wish-list. If you can’t wait until then you can find it here.
