Smashbox Heatwave Palette

I’m a total sucker for a good palette – and this is a REALLY good palette. I first saw this when I went along to a Smashbox event where they were showing off their new limited edition goodies, including this. Post even, this palette kept popping into my head and so I made a little order – for me, it’s the perfect balance between easy to wear neutrals and a little bit of colour… and look at that mirror!

I love how all the colours are subtle and played down, so you can make them as blended and natural as you like – or layer them up for a stronger look. The split between cool and warm colours is also really great as will work for a good range of skin tones.

My personal favourite shades are the champagne pink (bottom left) the rose gold (top, one from the right) and the taupe (bottom left) and the peach (top right). Quite contrasting shades, but I love how the pinky/orange toned shades work with blue eyes to make them pop.

Overall, this palette is my sort of dream – silky smooth colours, shimmer but not glittery and neutral easy to wear shades. Oh, and did I mention the mirror? It’s fab – a great size and actually props open rather than flops closed like some tend to. Actually would be easy to use this to do make-up on the go.

The palette is limited edition – so if you’re looking to get it then don’t wait!

    I’ve had my eye on this for ages as well as Stila’s ‘In The Light’ palette..but trying to convince myself I need yet another neutral eye palette over saving up for plane tickets can be difficult! xo
