Photo Matte Eyes Mini

0.17 oz Item 2302396

Find in Store-

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.

      garbage waste of money

      Pros

        Cons

        • Chalky
        • Difficult to Apply
        • Doesn't blend well
        • Poor pigmentation
        • Wears Off Easily

        Best Uses

          Comments about Smashbox Photo Matte Eyes Mini:

          The color pigmentation is absolutely awful and it doesn't blend at all. You can't build it either, because any excess powder just falls everywhere. I've tried tons of brushes and multiple primers and it always looks like garbage. You can't even do simple looks with it because it goes on so chalky and inconsistently. I did a side by side comparison and my ONE DOLLAR wet'n'wild single looks about a thousand times better than the comparable Smashbox shade. It also really quickly got all... clumpy and cakey in the palette. If you know what I mean.

          Since I bought it, I'll keep trying to get some use out of it and experiment, but for a price like that I shouldn't have to try this hard to make it look even half decent.

            I thought this pallet would be nice to have for everyday use. The simple colors drew me in. This pallet is VERY small, like palm size, and quite frankly not worth the price. I didn't notice the pigment was anything special either. If you want a small pallet for travel just grab from the drug store

                  This is the perfect little multipurpose palette. I keep it in my little makeup bag that I take out with me and it covers the need for natural,basic eyeshadow, liner, and brow powder. The pigmentation isnt overwhelming, but it definitely shows up and goes on smooth and there's no dust or fallout. Not sure if I would purchase again because there are cheaper alternatives, but I would recommend this for sure.

                                  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.
