Smashbox on the rocks eyeshadow palettes!

Clearly these palettes (and or their packaging) were designed just to entice my inner bling monster lover of all thing that sparkle with holographic diamonds.

These limited edition palettes are jam packed full of jewel toned shades while still giving you some naturals in there. That makes these palettes capable of creating virtually any look. Lucky for you even though they are limed to holiday 2014 you can still grab them on Amazon.

 With the 28 pan palette, Smashbox brings us a whirl of finishes, from shimmer, high shine, frost, even some glitter and lets not forget the matte shades. When I swatched them on my skin I was amazed at their beauty. I am a sucker for jewel tones even if I hardly ever wear them, I feel like I need them in my collection.


This palette seems to lean a little more on the cool side. There are some warmer tones on the left side (the naturals that I mentioned before) and they fade into the blues and smokey side of life. These shadows are so buttery smooth that they make blending look super easy.

Overall this is a great buy! If you are trying to expand your collection, this palette is a great and affordable way to do it. I will post the link to it below.

Ok now for the smaller of the two palettes, the 12 pan.... This palette packs a pretty big punch for its size and price point. There is a mirror that takes up the whole upper lid which makes this super convenient for on the go use.

It contains 12 shades that are a mixture of both warm and cool tones. You still get to add some gorgeous jewel tones to your collection with this little guy. The shades in this palette are of the same buttery smoothness as his big sister 28 pan palette! In case you were wondering, YES! Sapphires is that perfect shade of blue that everyone NEEDS in their collection!

I will say though, with these palettes the pigmentation shows up more on my swatches then on my eyes. I fell like this is true for 99% of the eyeshadows that I own though. I will post the link below if you are interested in grabbing this limited edition gem.
