Photo Matte Eyes Mini

Item #: 2302396 Size: 0.17 oz

Ask a Question

When Smashbox noticed that their makeup artists use matte eye shadows as brow powder and liner on shoots in our L.A. photo studio, they knew they had to create a do-it-all formula just for eyes. Now, they're following up with a sleek portable version that's perfectly sized for your clutch, carry-on bag or even office drawer. Each shade in this matte collection is a multitasker - from stay-put shadows that double as liner to brow powders that also work as shadows. And to make it even more versatile, each ultra-silky, richly pigmented shade can also be used wet for a more intense effect.

Why it's unique:

Think of it as the petite palette with potential for any look - from understated to amped up. It's truly everything you need for eyes in one must-have portable palette.

Formulated without parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate, phthalates, oil and fragrance.

Includes: 8 all-matte wet/dry shades that can be used as liner, shadow or brow powder.

Shades:

  • Haze (light gray)
  • Rosehip (muted pink)
  • Grounded (medium cool brown)
  • Wheat (soft warm brown)
  • Vanilla (soft light beige)
  • Desert (medium/neutral brown)
  • Earthy (warm brown)
  • Canyon (dark brown)


(0.17 oz each)

Apply a lighter shade all over lids. Contour by applying a medium shade in the crease. Line upper and lower lash lines with any of the darker shades, then fill in and define brows. For more intense color, wet the brush first (pressing it against your hand or tissue to remove excess water), then dip the damp brush into the pan and apply. Smashbox recommend a damp brush versus a wet one.) Plus, check out the insert for more eye and brow look inspiration.

          Beautiful and natural colors. Pigments are good but you have to use quite a bit of product to blend it well and the package is on the small size.

                  This is my second purchase of this eye shadow pallet. I really enjoy having the combination of eye shadow and eye liner all in one. This makes my morning routine super easy and fast. I had also purchased the small brush kit with the eye liner brush, eye shadow brush and blush brush, Ultra brand last year. This combination of Ultra Brush kit and Photo Matte Eyes Mini travels super easy in my makeup kit.

                    I love the size of this palette. I include it in my daily, minimal makeup routine. The package is sleek and portable. The color choices for this palette are perfect. The texture is silky smooth, and so far I'm impressed with the color payoff and how long they last on the skin. The only thing I didn't like, which is kind of a big thing (since they are strongly advertised as matte shades), is that the colors have a some shimmer to them. Not at all glittery or anything horrible, but I bought it because I thought they would be 100% matte. I don't like to find any type of sheen in what is suppose to be a matte color. I have not tried every color in the palette so I can't say that all of them have a shimmer, but I know at least three of them do. So that was kind of disappointing but I will continue to use this product.

                        Hi There! this palette would work well in a travel bag. It's about the size of a credit card. The shadows pans are less than half the size of our regular pans in the same formulation.
