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.

    Comments about Smashbox Photo Matte Eyes Mini:

    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.

        Comments about Smashbox Photo Matte Eyes Mini:

        The first time i used this eyeshadow, the darker colored shadows would not stay on my skin at all. I had just bought it so i was hoping maybe it was because my skin was too moist or hopefully something i was doing wrong. I just ended up using my Anastasia palette instead that day. The next day, i just got out the shower, didnt put anything on my face and tried it once more. The darker shadows were still difficult to apply and maintain onto my eyelid. It was only the darker colors. Im not sure if i just didnt notice the neutral colors because they blended in with my skin nicely, but the lighter shadows were fine. The darker ones were the shadows i had difficulty with.

            I've been using this palette every single day since I received it in the mail. I don't start an eye look without putting one of these shadows down as my transitions shade! The colors are well pigmented and so smooth and blendable that they make excellent transition shades. Also this palette is advertised as an all-in-one palette for brows, liner and eyshadow and I do believe that the color range really does provide that versatility. I feel like this would be a great palette for a beginner because it comes with the basic shades and each one is so easy to work with!

              Comments about Smashbox Photo Matte Eyes Mini:

              I picked this up at my local Ulta during the Christmas shopping season 2016 while waiting in line to check out. It was definitely an impulse purchase, but it was so tiny & I loved the colors, so I figured 'why not?'

              The colors are smooth & blend nicely & I've had no problems with fading or creasing. (The only downside so far --if I can call it that-- is the vanilla shade applied a tad patchy, but I think this had more to do with an uneven primer application, which was my fault). Plus the colors lend themselves for very versatile looks, everything from understated to dramatic & everything in between. And it's travel-friendly, about the size of a credit card but longer & more narrow. I'm actually toying around with buying the full-size version of this palette soon, in case SB decides to discontinue it. Bottom line: I really like it. Wish I had something like this years ago when I was a teenager.

                  Powder goes on smooth and stays all day. Very nice powder & colors for older woman. It's nice to see some nice matte color shadows instead of so many frosted/sparkle shadows. Case does not include an applicator now does it have room to store an applicator; something the manufacturer should consider.

                      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.
