Eyeshadows from top to bottom with an initial review below. I am also including the prices from ACW here.

* MAC Magnetic Fields - dark neutral brown with some glitter LE Neo-Sci Fi: I love the shade and the packaging - $19.99

* Smashbox Reign Palette: 3 Shimmer Shades swatched. The palette will be released this fall &
comes with 6 eyeshadows: 3 shimmery shades and 3 matte shades: 1 shimmery champagne coloured eye shadow & 1 matte beige eye shadow, a shimmery copper & matte medium brown - shimmery taupe brown & matte dark brown:
First impression: I have to say I love the shimmery shades, the shadows are extremely well pigmented and swatched easily! The texture is velvety soft without any fallout. However their matte counterparts are a big disappointment. Except for the dark brown shade, they don't seem to have any pigmentation. It wasn't even worth trying to take a picture of. - $16.99

* Smashbox Starlit : Is a taupy brown with a purpleish undertone. It's a beautiful shimmery shadow with good pigmentation - $6.49

* Smashbox Eyeshadow Duo in Splendid - warm medium brown & light pink. They're both slightly shimmery . Kinda reminds me of MAC's veluxe pearl texture. $4.99

Another swatch of Splendid, because you couldn't see the light pink in the previous picture.

Overall I am quite impressed with Smashbox's eyeshadows! Which ones do you own? Which ones can you recommend?


  1. I love smashbox, I have a few shadows and pallets that I love. Eyelights - Special Effects trio and Glow on Trio. Oh also 35mm great neutral colour!

  2. I tried starlit today. Loved how it applied, it's really smooth. It is more of a neutral shade, so was perfect for work. :)

  3. nice haul!
    i really like the smashbox pallet
