Happy Monday! New day new post! Today I’m sharing about one of the BEAUTIFUL little Smashbox Covershot Palettes. I have the “Golden Hour” Palette. The buzz about these is the packaging! It’s so cool. If you are In Australia these are Exclusive to Mecca Maxima. This one is sold out online but they will be available instore Feb 28! I will have all links for my international readers at the bottom of the post! Keep reading for swatches and a review to see if these are worth the buzz or not!


The SMASHBOX GOLD HOUR COVERSHOT PALETTE is such a pretty Palette with all the shades I need. One thing I was a little sad about was there was no medium/dark matte brown shade which I use every day either all over the lid or in the crease.

Above are swatches taken inside. The cool thing about these Smashbox shadows is that they are really versatile. If you wet your bush you can get these to looked quite opaque with a beautiful shimmer. If you take one of the shimmer shades and buff it out in the crease it looks completely matte. So you can use the Shimmers anywhere.

These swatches were taken in direct sunlight and you can see that they have a gorgeous sheen but are in no way really shimmery or foiled which is probably why they work so well as shimmers or mattes.

I love this little palette, the Cream shades provides a good cover and blanc canvas all over the lid, the Matte light brown is nice and VERY subtle in the crease (if you are more tanned and darker you could use this as your starting shade. I really love this palette.


In my package from Mecca I also Received 2 Smashbox Gel liners. WHAT AN AMAZING formula. I have the Black and the Grey and they are INSANELY pigmented and long wearing. This has to be one of the FEW black liners I have that DOESNT smudge in the water line!


The last little goodie I was sent was the Lip Primer in the colour SMOKE. It’s SO great for a smokie eye, I have used this twice and really enjoyed it!
