A202045 - smashbox Waterproof Powder Eyeshadow Palette
Being 45, I was kinda worried that the sparkle in the eyeshadow would be too much. But after applying it I found I couldn't see the glitter and it looks great! Very pretty colors that go with just about everything in my wardrobe.
Not for me
I really liked the colors, but that's it. I agree they have too much shimmer, glitter, whatever it is. I have oily lids and it did not last all day even with a primer. Also, the colors look different in the palette then when applied. The only thing I did notice was the shimmer. I returned and I'm disappointed as I've never had a problem with smashbox eyeshadow before.
I don't feel like these shadows are glittery at all. I'd say they have a bit of shimmer but nothing too sparkly. The shadows stay put just like they say and the colors are great for every day use.
Pretty colors. Better than average staying power but too glittery. A little shimmer is OK but obvious glitter and sparkle is not. Will give to someone much younger than me.
Had to Continually Reapply
I absolutely love the colors, but I had to reapply every hour even with an eye primer. I hate to send it back, but it doesn't work for me.
This product is fantastic and really has the staying power that Smashbox claims! The colors are a nice combination of wearable warm and cool tones and they blend so easily! They stay on even in this hottest and most humid of days!!! I hope that they come out with other color palettes...I will definitely purchase if they do!!
I don't understand the complaint about the "glitter".. I would call it " shimmer" and I'm 62 years old and thought it looked really great on me. Color and texture are perfect, not too sheer. I will have to say it did travel a bit from my lower lid to the upper, but, no big deal considering the brutalizing heat. Getting this yesterday was the best thing that's happened in days.
Great Shadow...Great Colors!
I was very impressed with this palette...for the use of the product and the colors too. They stayed on in the hot and humid weather we've been having...no running or smearing. And the colors are all my most favorite colors to wear so I am very pleased with that. A summer must have...LOVE!
Can't get past the glitter...
Why, oh why, does Smashbox have such a love affair with glittery eyeshadows?? They make the prettiest shades and creamiest textured eye shadows out there, but then go and ruin it by adding glitter! These colors are all very nice and wearable, the texture is nice, but half of them have small flecks of glitter that look ridiculous on my 50 year old eyes. Have to return because of that alone. Otherwise a very nice product.
Really great colors
When I saw these colors in person I was pleasantly surprised. They are very mixable and blend-able and they can be used as an eyeliner, too. I really like this!
no more smeared makeup eyes
My eyes are oily anyhow and with this summer it does not help and trying to look nice is impossible but this is GREAT !!! I found out if I want to even want to look sexy for my husband before going to bed I can actually apply some then and it still looks great the next morning!!! WOW ! I would definitley recommend this and I will buy again !! Thank you for this !!! I love the colors too. Can you also make a lighter shade of blue? I like to put the light blue on the bottom half of my eyes and I get so many compliments when I can get it to stay on.
