Smashbox Golden Hour Cover Shot Eye Palette

Golden Hour

Smashbox Golden Hour Cover Shot Eye Palette ($29.00 for 0.27 oz.) is a small, travel-friendly palette that features a warm, gold and plum-themed color scheme across eight shades. What I liked about this palette was that each well was large enough for regular eyeshadow brushes, and there was enough product across each that nothing felt skimpy. It actually is a more realistic amount of product, where one can finish and work through it, particularly for those of us with less modest stashes!

The formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with a “beyond blendable” texture. The eyeshadows in this palette had good to great pigmentation, softer, slightly dustier textures that were blendable but a couple shades were more prone to sheering out without a primer underneath. It did seem like a formula that I would not wear without a primer, but it was workable on bare skin. The wear was between seven and eight hours, depending on the shade, which is about average for me. The biggest issue I had when I worked without a primer was just that the formula was more prone to fallout during the application.

The palette should release officially on December 7th.

Dope

Dope is a light-medium peach with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff with a soft, silky texture that was a little powdery that applied best by patting on, rather than tapping or sweeping. It wore well for seven hours on me.

Hero

Hero is a light, yellowed beige with a matte finish. The eyeshadow had a really smooth, cream-like feel to it–very finely-milled and blendable–but it had a stronger white base, so it did not work as well with some of the deeper, warmer shades in the palette when blended with it (I used it on the brow bone), as it had a tendency to turn them a little ashy. I think a little pearl or perhaps a little less white would have helped it coordinate and work better with the other shades in the palette. It lasted nicely for seven and a half hours on me.

Lights

Lights is a light-medium gold with warm, yellow-gold undertones and a soft, frosted finish. The pigmentation was good, though not fully opaque, paired with a soft, lightly dusty texture that sheered out a touch on the lid and had some of the shimmer fallout during application. It started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear.

Turned On

Turned On is a soft, light-medium coral-pink with a frosted, golden shimmer. The pigmentation was fantastic–totally opaque–with a soft, blendable texture that ran a little drier and looser in the pan, so there was fallout to contend with during application, but it was easy to diffuse the edges and layer over other shades. I noticed fading after seven and a half hours on me.

Psyched

Psyched is a medium-dark, reddish-brown with warm undertones and a sparkling, frosted finish. It seemed to have a bit of sparkle/micro-glitter to it, but I didn’t notice significant fallout over time from it. The eyeshadow had rich, opaque color coverage, while the overall texture was soft, blendable, and just a touch dusty. It wore well on bare skin for seven and a half hours.

Rock Stars

Rock Stars is a deep plum with warmer undertones and a pearly sheen. It was intensely pigmented, and the color applied with true-to-pan intensity while still being blendable and easily diffused along the edges. The texture was soft without being too firm or too soft in the pan, which made it one of the easier shades to work within the palette. This shade started to fade on me after eight hours of wear.

Stare

Stare is a subdued, medium-dark brown with subtle, warm, golden undertones and a pearl finish. It had great color payoff that went on evenly on the eye. The texture was soft, denser without being too firm in the pan, and it blended out without issue on the skin. It lasted for eight hours before fading on me.
