Smashbox #SHAPEMATTERS palette - My thoughts + review

So I'm here with another beauty post! Are we really surprised? No, not all. 

Today I'm reviewing this stunning palette from Smashbox. I saw this gem at Boots and it was such a good deal I just couldn't let it pass. Originally it cost £60 (I know right, crazy,) but it was half priced to £30 and then had a further 10% off! So £27 for 9 eyeshadows, two contour colours, two highlighters, three brow colours and a double ended makeup brush is really not bad. 

As I said, I just couldn't let it pass. But be quick because it's sold out online and the offer ends on Thursday! 

Now onto the review:

I tried this set out the other day and got my sister to take loads of photos for me but unfortunately they were literally all out of focus so I couldn't use them! If you'd like to see a makeup look using this palette I'm going to do it again and post the pics on instagram sometime in the next few days! 

The first thing I tried out was the eyebrow colours. Sadly these shades are too light for me as I have really dark brown brows but I used the dark, matte brown eyeshadow (bottom left) with the flat angled brush and found that to be a great colour match. The quality of the brush was the first thing I noticed - it's seriously good! But the actual pigmentation of the eyeshadow was really amazing as well.

Next I tried the contour and highlight colour (I used the shade 'glow') these were so pretty with the highlighter giving a lovely, natural touch of light. The contour colour was great too, not orange or muddy looking at all which is something that usually worries me.

In terms of the eyeshadows I used the middle colour as an allover base, the aubergine in the creases and the silver grey in the outer thirds. To highlight, I used the pretty champagne in the inner corner. 

Again, just really amazing quality as you would expect from a high end cosmetics brand like Smashbox. I would highly, highly recommend! 

Let me know if you've ever tried anything from Smashbox and what your recommendations would be!
