Smashbox Cover Shot Eye Palette Ablaze Review and Swatch

November 16, 2017

Just a quick review sharing the highly raved Smashbox Cover Shot Eye Palette in Ablaze which I have been loving lately. I am obsessed with warm neutral colors with a twist at the moment – anything in the color palette of autumn shades such as terracotta, red brick brown and rosy brown just instantly grabs my attention. It seems everybody is raving about this palette, and all the colors are right up my alley so I had to have it!


The size of the palette is quite small compared to the other regular sized palettes – it’s a portable purse size that you can easily fit in your makeup bag. My favorite part of the design has to be the two bigger size of eye shadows in the colors of ivory beige, and peachy gold as they will always be the most used base colors. The texture of all eyeshadows is silky smooth and easy to apply and blend. The matte shades are velvety, and shimmer shades are finely milled so they don’t feel gritty and there is no fall out when applying.  All shades are intensely pigmented so a little goes a long way, and using a soft fluffy brush for the application is recommended.

This palette is gorgeous. I like the size of it because it is so easy to travel with. Like I could pack it to go to my sister’s and not get the shocked stares of how big my makeup bag is. Lol
