Smashbox Photo Matte Eyes Travel Palette

Smashbox Photo Matte Eyes Travel Palette

Hi beauties!

I’m always tempted when it comes to makeup minis, so I just had to pick up this travel palette from Smashbox.

Talk about multifunctional. The Smashbox Photo Matte Eyes Travel Palette features wet/dry (no sparkle!) shades that you can use as a shadow, liner, or brow powder,

Here are the eight neutral shades in the palette (mostly cool tones):

  • Haze (light grey)
  • Rosehip (muted pink)
  • Grounded (medium cool brown)
  • Wheat (soft warm brown)
  • Vanilla (soft light beige)
  • Desert (medium/neutral brown)
  • Earthy (warm brown)
  • Canyon (dark brown) 

The shadows can be built up for drama or applied with a light touch for a “no makeup” look. The shades have good pigmentation, are creamy, and last a long time.

If you like this palette, you can also get a full-sized version of this palette. For me, this is a great idea. 💡 If I love a palette, I get hooked on it until the bottom of the pan starts to show through.

The palette also comes with a mirror and a step-by-step guide with tips on how to accentuate your brow and eye shape. Overall, this palette packs a punch, so it’s a good value.

Five percent of the proceeds from the sale of  this palette will go to TRAFFIC, an international wildlife trade monitoring organization to help save the last tigers in the wild.
