I am a big fan of Smashbox and have been for around ten years now. A lot of my wedding make up was Smashbox and when I saw this #ShapeMatters palette I could have burst with excitement. This kit retails at £60 which seems steep but it is a high end product and can replace many items in your make up kit with one palette. However, Boots had this on special offer when it was first released a while ago and I got this at half price.
This palette is the ultimate kit for eyes, brows and face.
Included in the #ShapeMatters palette are 9 Photo Op Eye Shadows (Vanilla, Totally Nude, Champagne, Stripped, Posh, Platinum, Sumatra, Aubergine, Blackout), 3 Contour Powders suitable for most skin tones, 1 Highlighter, 2 Brow Tech Powders, 1 Brow Tech Wax, 1 double-ended Shadow/Brow Brush, 1 full-size mirror & 3 Interactive Get The Look Cards (Brow, Face, Eye).
The 2 Brow Tech Powders are complimented by a brow tech wax. If you was to buy 1 brow tech pencil this would set you back £16.50.
The Contour kit is a really generous size. If you were to buy this separately, it would probably be the equivalent of the step-by-step contour kit, priced at £35 for 3 powders.
On to the Photo Op eye shadows, this set has 9 great shades of matte and sheer nude to plum tones. Just gorgeous for autumn/ winter. If you was to purchase a Photo Op eye shadow trio, this would cost £23 so with 9 shadows, this is worth £69 alone!
This is all complemented by a doubled ended brush for shadow and brows and a full size mirror in the lid. The packaging is the classic Smashbox packaging which feels chic, pristine and luxurious.
As you can tell, I am just a little bit in love with this palette and so are other people, as this is currently sold out on the Smashbox web site, despite the £60 price tag!
The kit also ncludes 3 video-Interactive Get The Look Cards to make contouring easy for your face, eye and brow shape. Just touch the card to your phone to instantly activate. I have never seen anything like that before!
If you are going to treat yourself to anything for Christmas, let it be this!
