Hello again! Hope I didn't scare anyone away with my crazy long post! I don't like doing reviews as I feel I talk way too much! Anyways, I have another one for you now!
I've talked about this palette in previous posts. I absolutely can't get enough of it! BF did good when he got this for me for Christmas! I haven't used anything but this since then, it's that good! I think this has also surpassed my UD Naked Palette......and that's saying a lot!
This is the Smashbox Be Discovered Holiday Palette. Since it's a holiday palette, I don't know if these are still available. My bf got it at Ulta for $60.
There are 45 shadows, 3 blushes, 2 highlighters and a bronzer on the first layer. The best thing about this palette is all the neutral colors it comes with! So many different browns! A girl like me who loves my neutrals went crazy when I opened it! And they range anywhere from matte, to shimmery (and no glitter!!).
AND, the shadows are totally easy to work with. I have another Smashbox palette like this from maybe.....2 years ago, that has something like 60 shadows, and it literally sits in my closet, I hated that thing, the shadows sucked!
Downfall to this palette, is it is very large. See my hand for comparison (sorry about the fingerprints, it's obviously not that obvious when your not flashing the shit out of it!).
The one thing I still like my Naked palette for is the fact that it is totally easy to travel with. I don't want to tote this around when I'm going somewhere for a few nights.
Now on to the makeups! When I was getting ready yesterday am (ok, who am I kidding....yesterday in the afternoon, I told you guys I had a lazy day!), my bf saw me pull out this palette. He's so super cute, he gets all excited that I'm using something he bought for me. So I asked him what colors he thought I should wear. And he pointed at the green in the lower right hand corner and the blue 5th over from the right on the top row. I looked at the colors and thought I would have a difficult time with them, but alas, I think I got them to work. The interesting thing is, that when I started to apply the royal blue, it actually turned this gorgeous shade of purple! Not wanting to take away from the blue, I added the dark navy blue to darken the crease.
I haven't worn color for so long! The colors kinda remind me of Mardi Gras.
I'm so glad I have this palette, as I have totally fallen in love with it! After the craptastic palette I got a couple years ago, I had kinda lost faith in Smashbox!
