I received this eyeshadow set for Christmas. I saw it in Boots and said that I would like it for Christmas, Mr JAEG jumped on that (as he didn’t know what other make up I own) and purchased it. It is a limited edition for Christmas 2014, there was a bigger version with 28 shades but I thought I wouldn’t get the most out of that pallet.
This set has 12 different shades, some neutral and some with deep colour.
I would say the shades Nutmeg (top right), Opus, Vanilla in the next row and Confectionette and Mist the row after that are good to use for a natural daytime look. The remaining shades can be incorporated for a stronger daytime look or for night. Blacktop, Coronation, Chianti and Bourbon has some shimmer but not too glittery when on the eye.
This set comes with a decent sized mirror but no brush, I am not bothered about the applicator as I normally bin them if they are the foam style. Each shadow is 1.25g and have great staying power, although I use a primer.
I like Smashbox as a brand and their shadows always work well with me, it was also nice to have a change from the neutrals. This is also a handy size for travel. This set (at time of posting) is still available for purchase here.
