Smashbox is a brand that I’d seen a lot but hadn’t actually tried until I came across their collaboration with Vlada. I previous wrote my review on their Petal Metal Highlighter, which completely won me over as a collector’s piece and is actually a good product in itself too, so I wanted to finish up with my review of their Covershot Petal Metal Palette. I bought this from Sephora while I was in the US and it is available at Mecca in Australia (though it has since disappeared from the website and is likely only available in limited stocks). For people in the States, I’ve also heard that some of this range is starting to get discounted (which means that it will be discontinued soon), so it’s time to check it out before it’s gone!
This eye palette is limited edition and was created in collaboration with artist Vlada Haggerty. It’s actually part of a larger range of Covershot Eye Palettes and there are eight others that are currently available on the Smashbox website: Pinks + Palms, Punked, Smoky, Softlight, Golden Hour, Metallic, Matte and Ablaze (all with varying colour schemes and textures). They’re selling for USD$29 or AUD$49 at Mecca. They all feature eight complementary shades, with two larger ‘base’ shades to create varying eye looks.
For this special Petal Metal variation, the shades are all rose gold themed with a range of intense metallic shades and two mattes (one medium toned and one darker) for a palette that is easy to use for all skin types and skill levels.
