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

Used to love Urban Decay Naked...and then they changed it to Naked 2, and it went too dark for me. I have VERY fair skin, and I want mattes that accent, but don't make me feel like I'm wearing a ton of make up. This has EVERYTHING I want and all in one place. I love that the highlighter colors (which I use more of) are in a larger amount, and the accent colors are smaller. I can go a little darker for a night out, or lighter for everyday. I can go purple tones or brown tones, all in one place, thus for travel it takes up minimal space! On me it blends well, and stays well on top of primer! Wow! Thanks, smashbox!
Patchy, not velvety
Mm from Chicago
Very difficult to apply
Perfect cool toned palette
Glitter65 from Somewhere
This is a wonderful cool toned palette. So easy to do day looks into night. All shadows are blendable and seamless. Love!
My FAVORITE neutrals pallet
Melia from Bedford, NY
This is my absolute favorite natural pallet. The shades are all lovely, & they blend so well! It may seem expensive for what you get, but these are high-quality pallets, so I definitely know where the money is going.
The best eyeshadow I've ever used!
Berry from Naples, FL
This is the only eyeshadow I've used for the last five years! I travel often, so my make up bag is always in my purse or suitcase. The compact size of this eyeshadow palette makes it easy to pack and gives a variety of matte colors! Love!!
Loved the shades and the smoothness applying
PB from Georgia
First time ordered, usually get Naked pallette. Liked this one better, shades are amazing. Worked well with my mature skin
Beluved from Dry Ridge KY
I really loved it and the package was cool.
To small for $29 from 03055
I haven't actually used it but my first impression was enough to leave a review. Way smaller than I expected and colors are far darker than I expected.
I would by this again
Kare from Maine
I just love it!
Notas blendable as I thought
Lola from La CA
I wanted to love it but I was disappointed that the shadows did not go on smooth or blended easily. I tried my different eye primers but that didn't make a difference. Lasted about 4 hours before I noticed creasing and fading . By the end of each shift, it just looked bad. Can't find my receipt. Otherwise I'd return it
Great Cool Toned Find
AngelA from DET
I am always looking for cool toned palettes, and they're tough to come by. I bought myself this, and I'm really happy with it. It's compact, easy to travel with, and the shadows are high quality. This was a really great find.
CindyR from NJ
Nice colors but were chalky and tough to blend.
Gina from Maple Grove MN
The colors are perfect to create lots of looks, however there is a lot of fallout and the colors don't blend very easily.
Love the Colors
C from Fargo
All the warm toned palettes wash me out something terrible. This palette has the most perfect colors for skin tone!
Sugarglider from SF Bay
Despite my using the base contained in this palette, the colors went on streaky and harsh and did not blend well. I also tried it with my favorite base (another brand), and got the same awful result. I will not buy Smashbox again.
Marie from Nw
So tired of all the warm toned palettes!! Those don't look good on a lot of people. So happy for a palette devoted to cool/neutral tones! My most used palette for sure.
Lovely colors but...
NorthMom from Bismarck, ND
This palette truly does have beautiful colors but something in the shadow makes my eyes itchy and red. Ulta is not standing behind the product. They will refund but only if I find a store and go there for return.
Fills My Cool-Toned Heart
aliOOP992 from Denver, CO
While the eyeshadow formula is slightly better than average, the color story of Punked is perfect for people like me with cool-toned, fair skin. You can create day time and night time looks with it and every look is great. It is the closest dupe I have found for the Too Faced Boudoir Eyes palette: my favorite palette of all time that's been discontinued. This is truly an almost perfect replacement. I feel like Smashbox gets overlooked sometimes, but definitely don't sleep on this palette if you love cool-toned makeup.
In Love With This Palette! < 3
Alli from Maine
I didn't know what to expect when I first bought this palette. I love every shade and you can create many different eye looks. The color payoff is amazing. With the combination of a good eye primer, these eyeshadows stay on a long time. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Great eyeshadow kit!
ConnieM from Dallas,TX
Love this for versatile everyday shades.
Perfect companion palette
Vicki from Greenwood, IN
I bought this as a companion palette for my single shadow collection, which is almost all shimmer and metallics. I love that this palette is travel friendly and had all the matte shades I could need. These go on effortlessly and blend so well.
Rnin85 from Arizona
I love that the shadows are all matte. While I like most of the sahadows, the two darkest shades are terrible. They are patch upon application. I've worn them with and without primer and get the same patch results with the two darkest shades.
Beauty Freak from Rochester, NY
These shadows are very soft, pigmented and super bendable. However, I find that they fade very easily! I like to put shadow on the lower lash line and within 3 hrs it was totally gone. The shadows on the upper lash line held up but the colors did fade and seemed to muddy together. I am so disappointed because they blend like a dream and I love a lot of Smashbox's products. You also do not get a ton of shadow for the price so that is another negative. I would say these are definitely a skip.
Color not as it appears online
Trish from Michigan
Beware! Color is not as it appears online. Very good pigment, a little goes a long way, but I had to return it. Online they look like natural colors, but they made me look like a zombie.. Dull, grayish tones. Even the lightest colors had a gray hue.
Perfect Mix of Matte & Shimmer
KatieKat from Washington State
I love the colors in this pallete, but I've slowly been moving away from shimmer as I get older. This pallete is perfect for times when I want to punch up my look. The pigment is great, the shadows blend well, and have just the right amount shimmer. I will definitely be purchasing again.
