Smashbox Matte Cover Shot Eye Palette

Matte

Smashbox Matte Cover Shot Eye Palette ($29.00 for 0.27 oz.) is a small, travel-friendly palette that features all matte eyeshadows in warmer, neutral hues. The formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with a “beyond blendable” texture. The mattes in the palette are decent to good, but they definitely beg for a primer to perform well; without, they had a tendency to sheer out, apply a bit unevenly, and had moderate fallout during wear. The wear time varied from shade to shade–six to seven hours–but all eight had softer textures and none felt firm/stiff in the pan.

Preview

Preview is a light yellow with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff with a soft, smooth consistency that was moderately powdery and sheered out too readily on the skin. It lasted for six and a half hours before fading on me.

Assistant

Assistant is a light, peachy-beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. The color coverage was fully opaque, while the powder felt soft, smooth, and finely-milled with minimal excess product kicked up in the pan. On me, it showed signs of fading after seven hours of wear.

Werk It

Werk It is a muted, medium peach-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had great pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin with just a bit of sheering out. I would still recommend only using this if you intend to use primer underneath, though. The consistency was soft, lightly dusty and a bit thinner, but it blended out nicely. It wore well for seven hours on me.

Publisher

Publisher is a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, warmer yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had medium coverage, which was somewhat buildable, but this was another shade that really needed a base for it to adhere evenly to the skin. The eyeshadow had a soft texture that was blendable but had a tendency to apply unevenly, as it seemed to darken in some areas (perhaps natural oils on my lid) but not others. It lasted for six and a half hours on me.

Angles is a muted, dark red-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was dusty and prone to sheering out, while the pigmentation was decent and buildable, but it was not opaque or full coverage in a single layer. It wore well for seven hours on me before fading.

Supermodel

Supermodel is a light-medium peach with warm undertones and a matte finish. There was a noticeable powderiness to this shade, so I’d recommend tapping off a bit of powder before patting gently onto lid to minimize fallout. It had good pigmentation, though, and it applied fairly well to bare skin. This shade wore well for seven hours on me.

Deadline

Deadline is a dark black with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was mostly opaque, and it applied without too much patchiness onto bare skin, but it did take some extra work to diffuse and apply overall. The texture was soft without being powdery. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me.
