Smashbox Metallic Cover Shot Eye Palette

Metallic

Smashbox Metallic 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. 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. Some of the eyeshadows have a dustier or thinner texture, which can make them prone to sheering out (and difficult to maintain their intensity) or fade faster than other shades. While it might be labeled “Metallic,” the eyeshadows were more faded and less metallic than they were frosty–definitely shimmery but most lacked the reflective quality of more metallic (or foiled) eyeshadows to my eye. The quality of the eyeshadows was decent to good, but I didn’t love it as a palette–it wasn’t as cohesive or as effortless to put together a look with the shades, as they had a tendency to muddy together.

Inside Scoop

Inside Scoop is a light-medium gold with warm, orange undertones and a frosted finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a drier, looser texture that did not apply as evenly as I would have liked over bare skin. It wore well for just over seven hours on me.

Straight Up

Straight Up is a light peach with warm, yellow undertones and a pearly sheen. It appeared much darker in the pan than swatched, where it was considerably lighter. The consistency was soft, a touch dusty but blendable on the lid and yielded good pigmentation. It wore well for seven hours before fading.

Let’s Rage

Let’s Rage is a light-medium gold with subtle, warm yellow undertones and a frost finish. This is a “cooler” kind of gold, but it’s still a warmer shade. The texture was a touch dry, a little dusty and had a tendency to sheer out applied to bare skin. It had decent pigmentation, but it was just hard to get it to stay opaque on my skin without a primer. This shade started to fade after six and a half hours of wear.

Liquid Fire

Liquid Fire is a medium-dark copper with warm, brown undertones and a frosted finish. The color payoff was fully opaque, while the texture seemed smooth, blendable, and soft without being too dusty, but I had issues with this shade fading immediately after applying. As this was one of the darker shades in the palette, I wanted to use it as a contrasting shade, but it lost that depth as I blended it out. The color lasted for six and a half hours after that.

Party Time

Party Time is a muted, dark brown with flecks of lighter brown sparkle. The consistency was much drier and looser compared to most shades in the palette, and this resulted in sheerer, uneven coverage with a lot of fallout. It lasted for six hours on me.

Rock Candy

Rock Candy is a soft taupe with warm, golden undertones and a frosted finish. The pigmentation was opaque, while the eyeshadow had a soft, smooth texture that wasn’t too soft or too firm in the pan, so it applied evenly on the lid and did not sheer away immediately. I was able to wear it for seven hours before it faded.
