Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review and swatches of the Smashbox Covershot Eye Shadow Palette in the shade Desert.
I promise I’ll stop after this week with Smashbox reviews but these two palettes (the other one I’ll review on Friday) just arrived in the stores and I wanted to chat about them with you.
This more green one is my personal favourite because it has a good mix of fun shades and neutral ones. Plus, no one ever talks about this palettes but they are so nice!
You can get it from Sephora for 29$
I don’t really know how to explain it but the packaging is adorable, the top part has one of those pictures that switch if you move it and the design is like an eyeshadow explosion, basically it moves.
You have to bigger shades on the top part which are allegedly those you’ll use more and three at the bottom.
You can also consider them as two palettes in one, one on the left and one on the right (it goes without saying that you can use each colour, however you want).
PIGMENTATION & FORMULA
I find the mattes are a really good base for any look. They are incredibly buttery and they blend like a DREAM.
The shimmers are stunning too, and all the shades are richly pigmented and super buttery.
The shades really compliment each other and they blended SO easily.
I think the shimmers work best when they are damp or applied with the fingers but that’s usually the case with shimmer shadows
This look was done with: Casita in the crease, Baked Clay in the outer corner and Road Trip on the lid.
I’ve used Suede in the crease, Saguaro in the outer corner, Prickly Pear on the lid and Stargazing in the inner corner.
With a primer, these eyeshadows last about 8 hours before fading, but I don’t tend to wear make up for longer than that anyway.

I don’t know what to say, I love this palette. The shade range, the pigmentation, the blendability and packaging. I love it. I love that you can use it to create more everyday looks and more colourful ones. I think it’s such a good option for the price it has.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
