Cherry Pie : Smashbox 'In Bloom' Eyeshadow Palette

Smashbox 'In Bloom' Eyeshadow Palette

The very lovely people at Debenhams sent me this gorgeous Smashbox 'In Bloom' Eyeshadow palette recently. Now I'm not totally up to date on my beauty products but I hear this is something a bit special.

'Ultra-pretty eye looks are just a few steps away with this spring-fresh palette of 10 soft shimmers and mattes. The luxe shadows are arranged in duos for surefire color coordination, or use the brush included in the palette to mix-and-match your own custom look.'

Looking at the packaging, I was expecting the product inside to be full of Summery pinks, but was really pleasantly surprised when I saw a nice mixture of coloured mattes and shimmers. I particularly like the darker colours such as 'Shimmery Copper,' 'Iris Blue' and 'Moss' as they will work well as dominant base colours while 'Pink Lily,' 'Lavender Grey' and 'Bone' all make great highlighters. Below you can see some swatches of all the colours.

L-R: Pink Lily, Lavender Grey, Golden Rose, Warm Taupe,  Bone

L-R: Soft Orchid, Iris Blue, Shimmery Copper, Moss, Nude

I love that the palette comes with a decent sized mirror and a brush. I want to try and stay away from my usual brown shades of eyeshadow so I think this palette will really help me. All the colours can blend easily together to create some amazing eye looks.
