Smashbox Softbox Palette

I ordered this Smashbox Softbox Eye Palette $48 from a couple weeks ago and I was so excited when it came in the mail today!!!! Please remember if you're interested in this palette (before or after this review) it is a LIMITED EDITION product from Smashbox and will not be returning!

Came with:
9 shadows
2 cream eyeliners
double ended brush
mini Photo Finish Lid Primer
mini Limitless Eyeliner in black
"Get The Look" pamphlet

1st row: Nectar (matte pecach), Vanilla (matte cream), and Flirt (taupe glitter)
2nd row: Lucky Penny (shimmering copper/bronze), Sugar (shimmering pink), Stone (matte grey/cement)
3rd row: Sienna (shimmering coffee), Nude (nude matte), Truffle (deep shimmery mauve)

Please click below to read more & see more photos...

Palette liners: Taupe (shimmery steel grey) and Bronze (deep shimmery bronze)
Limitless Eyeliner: Black (smooth, creamy, opaque black)

Creamy opaque lid primer + base color

Double ended brush comes with eyeshadow/eyeliner. Eyeshadow brush is a little large for my taste (width wise) and not firm enough. Eyeliner brush is quite nice, i liked it alot, its very firm and precise

Size comparison.


Overall, I am soooo excited to try some EOTDs with this palette! Swatching the shadows and liners was fun and I can tell I am going to love it. Well worth the money for the quality and amount of products you get!
So what do you think???? Would you purchase this palette?


  1. Wow! I just got mine as a sample today, I'm so excited to try it!

    It has pretty nice colors :)

    I'm the makeup editor for in Spanish, so I might include your blog as an inspiration for our readers!



  2. Thanks alot i really appreciate it! Love this palette.

  3. You're so lucky you got all three palettes! I am actually deciding to purchase one of the three - UD Naked, Too faced Natural, and this Smashbox. Which one do you like the most? Please recommend me one! Thank youuu

  4. I definitely like UD Naked the best out of all of them. You get a mini UDPP primer which is AMAZING, a free $26 Good Karma eyeshadow brush, and 12 super high quality UD eyeshadows in really nice neutral shades. Ive done 9 different eye looks w/ my UD Naked palette so far and there are tons more you could do. To me, its all around the better buy.

  5. and BTW you can buy the E.L.F. Neutral Eye Beauty Book for $5 at Target or and its and almost exact dupe for UD Naked. I did swatches n stuff for comparison here -
