SMASHBOX Photo Op Eye Enhancing Palette - Brown Eyes


This is a beautiful and handy palette from Smashbox for all you brown eyed people out there. It is a great starter palette that is perfect for everyday use, because these six shadows are each carefully selected to bring out the best in brown eyes, both as shadows on their own, and also with the variety of looks you can create using more than one shadow. 






The shadows come in durable packaging, and the shadows themselves are quite large in size which is a bonus if this is a palette you are constantly reaching for. Together they are created to compliment brown eyes whichever way you wear them, the palette consists of 4 beautiful shimmery shadows, with the two other cream and navy shades coming in matte formula which is great for creating a base and adding definition. The top three shadows are labelled as the 'soft trio', a collection of shimmery browns and taupes, great for creating gorgeous looks for every day or for a more subtle night time look. The bottom line of shadows are the 'smoky trio' which you can use for a more dramatic and dark look, although I don't think you have to stick to this necessarily, they are a good guideline and work perfectly as trio's, but I think you can mix them up to create equally as amazing looks.

As for the shadow quality itself, it is pretty awesome, the pigmentation is great and I love how shimmery and light reflective the iridescent ones are. They don't drop and blend really well. Most importantly though it's the colours that I love in this set, It is brilliant that Smashbox came up with specific eye colour palettes (blue and hazel are available to) so once you invest in this palette you would absolutely get your moneys worth. The only flaw is there is not a green eye palette as yet, if they had a green one then it would make for a wicked series of staple shadows for a kit.

Smashbox is available at Debenhams in the UK and Sephora elsewhere.

  8. Lately I've been addicted to my naked palettes so it would be nice to branch out, and I have big brown eyes so I will consider giving this a try. I really like the navy shade!

  14. There's a palette for Hazel eyes too? Now, that makes me excited! Smashbox colors are so beautiful that I can't wait to find it!

  15. There seems to be a general lack of specific palettes for Green eyes. I should have thought they were as common as blue or therebaouts? Lets hope they bring out one soon!

    It would be so nice to not randomly have to purchase purples, bronze and brown colours but instead have them all in one place :)

  16. The palette looks amazing! I could see some beautiful dark smokey looks being made with this. It would really make brown eyes pop.
