Smashbox Cover Shot Eyeshadow Palette in Ablaze

After weeks and weeks of waiting for it to come back in stock, I finally got my hands on the coveted Smashbox Cover Shot palette in Ablaze. And I am in love.

The first notable thing about this palette is the “lenticular” packaging; the image changes as your view moves!

The palette may be “purse-sized” but it packs a punch. There are two quads that you can use as-is or mix and match. This also has a good mix of mattes and metallics.

Quad #1 is a bit more on the burgundy side and contains the one matte highlight in the palette. Above swatches are 1x.

I used all four shadows for this look and although it didn’t come out as vibrant as I thought it would, I still really like it.

I used the burgundy matte and bronze to define the crease and outer V and that pretty pink shimmer on the lid.

This warm burgundy look reminds me of ABH’s Modern Renaissance palette.

The second quad is a bit more on the rusty orange side. Again, the quality is top notch and the swatches are 1x, fairly light.

I used the rust matte shade sparingly here, just to define the crease a bit.

I love the rich brown matte to create that outer V contour. It blended so beautifully!

I love both looks from this palette and definitely understand why this was so hard to get my hands on. But the good news is… it’s available at Sephora now!
