Most Helpful Positive Review Love this little palette!
I received the smoky palette complimentary from Influenster in exchange for my honest review. First of all, the size of the palette is wonderful. I travel with my makeup a lot, and most of my go-to palettes are huge The size of this one save so much room in my makeup bag. The colors are nicely pigmented, and it has a variety of mattes and shimmer shadows The very light matte color could be bit more pigmented, but I honestly don't use that color very often. These eye shadows blend beautifully...even better than my $60 eye shadow palette. The dark colors even make a great eyeliner when using a wet eyeliner brush. I love these little palettes, and I plan to buy more!
Most Helpful Critical Review Nicer in the Palette
The softlight palette has beautiful packaging and the colors are gorgeous, however, they did not show up as pigmented on my melanin skin. The colors are also very soft and easy to apply but I had to apply multiple layers to get any type of pay off. The other downside to the Softlight Palette is that it doesn't have any mattes/transition colors so I used another brand for that. Overall I think I would enjoy one of the other covershot palettes more since the colors are deeper and more pigmented. This product was sent to me by Influenster for free for testing and the opinion/review above is my own
Reviewed by 348 customers IT IS SO SMALL!!!! FYI
Jules from Boston, MA
I bought this thinking it was a full size palette. Instead, it is about the same size as the mini Naked palettes from Urban Decay. It is no bigger than 4 inches. A mini palette for sure. I need nudes because thats what i wear most, so I got all Minimalist, with all nudes... i had to put on 4 different shades of color just to have my eyelides be brown. Kind of pointless. Oh well.
My new favorite palette!
Mel AZ from Arizona
I've been using this palette as my daily shadow and love the coverage of these colors. The mix of colors compliments and blends well. I use the darkest shade as my liner.

Just submitted review saying the colors were off, but I was wrong since I bought two palettes and got confused.
Anyway, these are gorgeous! I have brown eyes and light skin. These are subtle and rich and bendable. Stays on all day (with primer). Even went swimming and there was still a nice wash of color on my lids after one dip (came off after a few more, but hey)
The shimmers I could wear everyday they are so gorgeous and pair well with all the shades. Not too much glitter. Creates sultry looks.

The online pic doesn't show the colors to the right at all, but I liked it BETTER. They are pink, mauve, and black.
This palette is ultra chic and natural looking. Gives a wash of color for work, gym, or play settings!
I have brown eyes and light skin. Everything blends in to a shade that isn't overdone. Stays on all day (with primer, good staying power without but works better with)
Great eye shadow... My fav!

Came damaged - sides were torn.. I wish this would have been checked before sending.
LaurieL from Merritt Island, Florida
I have quite a large collection of eyeshadow palettes, from many different brands, including several Smashbox palettes, but I think of all of them, this one is my favorite! Goes on smoothly, never creases, very little fallout, and the colors are great for many different looks. This is probably the palette I use the most!
Sea Mother from NV
This brand is beyond higher quality than your basic shadow pallet. The quality is worth the extra money spent!!
Golden Hour Palette
Jess from US
Love this!! It's my new casual everyday go to! Every combination I've tried so far has looked great. Blends very well & makes my eyes pop without much effort.
I am deeply disappointed
Lisa from Los Angeles
I found out this this product uses mica, an ingredient mined by children in India, who are making less than $0.25 a day for the risk of their lives. There are better alternatives and I expect smash box to be more considerate.
New go to pallet!
Cookey from Bloomington, IN
I absolutely love how someone finallllllly understands we need more of the base color! The shadow goes on well maintains coverage (used with smash box picture perfect primer) all day and doesn't crease. The color pallets are the perfect neutral with that touch of pink. Very pretty with a touch of luster. My new go to pallet.
Love the colors
Marie from Colorado
I'm using the eyeshadows daily to enhance my eyes.
Love this and would definitely purchase again.
Denise from Fargo ND
Love this product-pretty colors-some matte-some shimmer. (Not too much shimmer though.) Stays all day with eye primer.
won't purchase again
Raintexas from Texas
I was excited to get this. Tried it the morning after I purchased it. Used a eyeshadow primer. Let the primer dry. This went on in streaks! Because of the primer, I had to use make-up remover to get it off. There was no way to fix it without taking it off. Tried again. Same thing.
Perfect colors for day and night!
Scootergal from Glen Ellyn IL
Love this pallet! Ive used just about every color which is rare for me. I gravitate to the neutral browns. This palette has it all.
Bumble Bees on a blooming Violet
zVintageFashionizta from Bronx, NY
After watching a Bumble Bee Shadow tutorial by the makeup artist Hindash I went on a quest for yellow eyeshadow and I found this beautiful Sunlit Yellow palette. I love this palette; not only does it have the shade I was looking for but instead of it having the typical black and gray shadows it has navy blue and teal.... two of my favorite colors!
Well of course when you go looking you come upon other things, I couldn't help myself, I also purchased this
pretty Ultraviolet Palette.
Absolutely LOVE THIS EYESHADOW!!!!
Beck from Vista Ca
Awesome color. Awesome stay power awesome pigment. Really gorgeous
raki from ca
Way too overpriced for the size and the formula is nothing special.
Covershot "Bold" Palette
Peaches from Washington State
Oh. My. God. I still have yet to find a palette that has such intense pigmentation and so little fallout. The bright colors stay true on the eyelid, and last SO LONG with no creasing, (and I don't use primers, so it's crazy how good it stays). Sunset on your eyelids? Bright nautical colors? This palette delivers. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase again and again and again.
Best palette for over 50 and oily lids
BeMerry from Chicago
I have I am a way over 50, caucasian, female with oily lids. I have dark brown hair with lots of silver speckled throughout, and blue/green eye color. This palette is beautiful for someone who is looking for a neutral lid. These colors are not dull in anyway. The color stays true on my lid with a primer. Often even with a primer I have trouble with losing color even with the most expensive eye shadows(Urban Decay, Tarte, Estee Lauder, etc...) I use Milani lid primer. There is a warm side and a cool side. in this palette. I can use one of the colors on the cool side to fill in my brows. I just love this palette. There is very little fall out. It has a really nice mirror on the inside, and magnetic closure to keep everything intact on the inside. This isn't a palette designed to "WOW" you because the colors are all neutral. If you want color, you have to go elsewhere. What this palette has that others don't is staying power, and the ability to give that natural look without too much shimmer, glitter, or in-your-face color. I HIGHLY recommend this palette.
Megara from Hawaii
Maybe I've been spoiled by Urban Decay and Tarte, but this palette just didn't impress me. Colors were super muted and dull, even with eyelid primer. Yes, it's a "minimalist", but I wouldn't even use this for work.
Great color combinations
Likewine99 from St. Louis, MO
Use for daily makeup application.
It's pretty good...
mademoiselle from yeet
I am an overall fan of the smashbox companies, but the pallette did not have an amazing pigment. The colors are great but like I said not amazing with coverage, can sometimes be patchy, but overall I enjoyed it.
So beautiful, so pigmented
Diva75 from NYC
First time Smashbox purchase. I love my covershot palette! I ordered the smoky. I swatched the colors and they all matched my skin tone. So beautiful, so pigmented. Perfect for day or night. I'm definitely going to purchase other colors. Perfection!!
