Being an avid lover of Smashbox shadows and long time advocate for the brand, I knew before even touching these rainbow coloured beauties that they'd be soft as butter, deeply pigmented and just begging to be used. I wasn't wrong.
The top two rows start off with barely there colours, ideal for buffing work and escalate to golds, coppers and several shades of taupe and brown.
The next two rows contain almost the entire green/blue, pink/purple spectrum with the shade furthest right on top there being an incredible velvety soft MAC Club dupe.
The final swatch is of the 3 intense blushes, 2 mattes and 1 microglitter (again soft to the touch) and a coppery brown matte bronzer. Colours again are saturated and the longevity with these is just as I've come to expect with Smashbox blushes - ace.
Now I hear a few of you saying you're a little daunted by such large palettes too, that's where Smashbox as a brand come into their own. With the ethos of teaching at their very core, in the Smashbox Wonder Vision Mega Palette they haven't failed the cack handed amongst us either. Behold:
Using tutorial cards to highlight 4 key looks, you simply place the clear plastic over your chosen shadows for a simple step by step - clever, huh?
There are many reasons why I blew my entire years Boots points on the Smashbox Wonder Vision Mega Palette, the incredible value (€60 for €332 worth of kit!), the ease of use, the amazing shade range, the huge & perfectly balanced mirrored lid that can hold itself open or just the fact that when I know it's Smashbox then I know it works.
You can find the Wondervision range online from Boots or you could do yourself a favour and pop into Arnott's or larger Boots stores and chat with the gorgeous girls in there. Maybe even book a Christmas party makeover that's redeemable against purchase? That's a win/win plan right there.
