Smashbox Softlight Cover Shot Eye Palette

Softlight

Smashbox Softlight Cover Shot Eye Palette ($29.00 for 0.27 oz.) is a small, travel-friendly palette that features a smoky take on “soft” shades of gold, peach, and brown. 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.

This was the worst palette in the bunch, as it did not work well even over primer–the formula was just too dusty and dry. The eyeshadows ran together, sheered out, and faded within five hours of wear. No matter whether I used two shades or five shades, it looked like the same faded, shimmery beige eye.

Keeper

Keeper is a light gold with warm, yellow undertones and a frosted finish. It had good pigmentation, but the consistency was drier and prone to sheering out, so it left just a wash of semi-sheer shimmer once I started to blend it. If I patted it on and barely touched the edges, it looked opaque for three hours–then it seemed to just fade and fade and fade.

Spectacle

Spectacle is a pale lavender with cooler undertones and a frosted finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage with a dry, dusty consistency that did not apply evenly, blended away to next to nothing, and had little staying power even when just patted and left unblended on the lid (four hours).

Starlight

Starlight is a light-medium peachy beige with warmer, yellow undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It had decent pigmentation, but it had the same dry, dusty texture that sheered away as soon as I attempted to blend it on the skin. The color lasted for five hours on me.

Fresh Take

Fresh Take is a medium peachy orange with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had sheer color payoff with a dusty, thin texture that was difficult to apply, as there was not much that adhered to the lid, even when patted and packed onto the lid. The color seemed to vanish by the fourth hour.

Cascade

Cascade is a muted, medium pinky-coral with gold shimmer. The texture was very powdery and thin, which resulted in the eyeshadow sheering out very easily over the lid, despite having good pigmentation–it just didn’t stick! This shade faded within five hours on me.

Beach House

Beach House is a medium-dark brown with warmer undertones and a golden shimmer. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a dusty, thin texture that was prone to sheering out when I worked with it. The color just didn’t adhere well to the lids at all for me. I noticed fading within five hours of wear.
