Smashbox Fade To Black Fall 2013 Collection | Photo Op Eye Shadow Palette in Fade In

Smashbox's Fall 2013 Collection, Fade To Black features two new Photo Op Eye Shadow Palettes in Fade In and Fade Out. Fade In, featured here, is a gorgeous mix of mattes and metallics in the most wearable, everyday neutrals.  **Press Sample

Smashbox always has neat, travel friendly packaging for their eye shadow palettes in general. Fade In, is packaged in a metal case with an ombre design and comes with a travel sized blending brush and a generous sized mirror. The brush is quite nice and works for when you want a sheer wash of color. I would prefer something else for blending. The colors in this palette are beautifully chosen - each of them very wearable, alone or when paired with other shades in the palette. The quality is amazing too - very blendable textures, nice pigmentation and hardly any fallout. These are the kind of colors I tend to gravitate towards the most and all of them are very fall appropriate. There's quite a bit of shimmer to the metallic shades, but none of them feel chunky or gritty. Overall, its a beautiful palette for any neutral eye shadow lover that can be used to create a variety of looks. Definitely one of my favorite palettes from Smashbox!

Price : $42; Available online and in-store at Sephora, Nordstrom and online at smashbox.com

  1. It's a good palette for smokey eyes, but I feel like it's sort of limited. There should be more lighter shades in the mix.

    1. Yeah, its quite simple! But even the lightest shade is a tad ashy on me..good for blending out colors etc..
