Swatches: Smashbox + Vlada Cover Shot: Petal Metal Eye Shadow Palette

May 12, 2018

Smashbox has recently came out with a collaboration collection with Vlada (@Vladamua), and it is everything you need if you are a lover of rose gold. I recently picked up the Petal Metal Eye Shadow Palette to swatch and see how good the eyeshadows are. There are also highlighters, liquid lipsticks, shimmer spray, eyeliner, and shimmer drops. Find out more about this collection and see swatches of the eyeshadow palette below. 

Even though the packaging is something you might not hold on to, I appreciate the small details and how pretty the packaging ended up being. There are a lot of metallic eye shades with a few matte shades to create gorgeous rose gold looks.

More information about the collection:
Get dipped in rose gold with the limited-edition Petal Metal Collection. It was co-created with makeup artist and Instagram star Vlada Haggerty (@vladamua), who’s also Smashbox’s lip editor-in-chief. She loves creative collaboration and used her signature rose gold color as the inspiration for these statement-makers for face, eyes, lips, and body.

The Smashbox + Vlada Petal Metal Eye Shadow Palette ($29, limited edition) comes with 8 rose gold inspired eyeshadows the range from metallics to mattes. I have been using this palette for a couple of weeks now and I have loved the looks I've put together. Now of course you are not going to get a full wide range of different looks since this palette is made to be focused on the rose gold color. But I personally love that I can reach for this palette on a daily basis and make my look either day or night time friendly. 

All of the shadows are very pigmented and are easy to blend on the lids. I didn't have too much fall out but it is expected when you are working with metallics. I also love that there is a nude matte shade instead of a white matte. The shade Nude Rose is perfect as a transition color on the lids and is not too dark to play around with. The same goes for the dark brown matte shade which is Coffee Blossom. I love that I can use that shade on the outer corners to deepen my look as much as I need to. I recommend this palette since it has amazing pigmentation and the shadows last well on the eyes.

You can find the Smashbox + Vlada Collection in stores at Sephora, Ulta, and other retail stores. Also available online and the collection is limited edition.
