Smashbox Smoky Cover Shot Eye Palette

Smoky

Smashbox Smoky Cover Shot Eye Palette ($29.00 for 0.27 oz.) is a small, travel-friendly palette that features a smoky take on earth shades of brown, plum, green, and gray. The formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with a “beyond blendable” texture. All eight shades had good pigmentation, were fairly blendable, and wore for seven to eight hours. Some shades were a touch dusty, which may have resulted in a bit of fallout during application or shorter-wear, but overall, the palette was easy to use, and the colors chosen make sense within the theme.

Feature

Feature is a light-medium brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was soft, a little dusty but applied fairly well to bare skin (but I’d recommend using a primer for better coverage and application). It had good color payoff that went on evenly and lasted for seven hours on me.

Instinct

Instinct is a light yellow with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had great pigmentation with a very soft, smooth texture that had some dustiness in the pan and fallout during application. When I tried using this on my brow bone, a lot of product fell onto my lid, so I highly recommend using a lighter touch with this and possibly applying it first. It wore well for seven hours on me.

Hell Ya

Hell Ya is a medium-dark brown with a golden sheen. It had great pigmentation with a finely-milled, smooth consistency that wasn’t too firm or too soft in the pan, so I did not have any issues with excess powderiness or product kicking up in the pan. It wore for just over seven and a half hours on me before fading.

Slayer

Slayer is a deep taupe with subtle, browner undertones that ran neutral-to-cool to my eye. The texture was smooth, slightly firmer in the pan than the other shades. I expected it to be more challenging to blend out, but it wasn’t so bad; it wasn’t effortless, but when applied in sheerer layers, I didn’t even notice blending being an issue–it was only if I packed it on. It wore for eight hours on me.

Big Night

Big Night is a deep black with cooler undertones and flecks of multi-colored sparkle over a matte finish. Unfortunately, the sparkle did not translate on the lid, as the sparkles dusted away from the base color. The eyeshadow was quite pigmented with a soft, smooth texture that wasn’t too dusty or too thin, so it blended out well while still maintaining its intensity. It wore nicely for just over seven and a half hours on me.
