|Smashbox Heat Wave Eye Shadow Palette*|
Meet the new Heat Wave Eye Shadow Palette & Brush from Smashbox. It's a beauty isn't it? This eye shadow palette is part of Smashbox's new Heat Wave Summer Collection which has 10 shades for you to create a 'sweet, subtle or bold look'. I personally don't wear a lot of eye makeup in hot climates (when I'm on holiday, since the UK is NEVER that hot!) but I think this is perfect for nights out on holiday. So this is definitely going in my suitcase with me this summer!
What's so different about these shadows? Well you can apply them wet or dry. I find applying the shadow wet will give boost the colour of the shadow. If you like the whole subtle look (like I do :)) then apply the shadow dry. I love the sleek packaging and I love how it also comes with a two end brush like the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette does. Definitely recommend taking this on holiday with you as it has the perfect colours for a night out. The only thing I don't like about the palette is that the colours have no names.
1- Matte beige/nude colour which would be perfect as a base colour.
2 - Gorgeous bronze which is super pigmented and has lots of shimmer. Perfect colour for a summers night out.
3- Warm brown matte colour which is good for an au natural look.
4- A shimmery red eye shadow. I'm not too keen on this colour, and red eye shadow is pretty damn hard to pull off. My least favourite.
5- A pigmented golden eye shadow with lots of shimmer. This and number 2 are my favourite!
6 - Beautiful champagne colour with lots of shimmer. Great for the inner corners or even as a highlighting colour.
7- A Grey/Silver eye shadow with a shimmery finish. Another fab colour for a summers night out.
8- A shimmery Blue with grey undertones.
9- A shimmery purple/pinky colour with grey undertones.
10- A dark brown with a bit of shimmer.
Which colour is your favourite?
