Smashbox Love Me Eye Shadow Palettes

Smashbox Love Me is a new limited edition collection for spring 2013 and it’s comprised of two Eye Shadow Palettes (Admire Me, Entice Me), two Be Legendary Lipsticks (Love Me, Tempt Me), a Powder Blush (Idolize Me), Paint Pen Eyeliner (Jet Black) and Lip Enhancing Gloss (Adore Me, Charm Me).

I saw the two shadow palettes on Sephora’s website awhile back and couldn’t resist picking them up. Such cute packaging but also the colors looked really tempting…

As you can see the palette has “Love Me” written in black plastic and that layer lifts up so you can get to the actual shadows underneath.  I love the shape inside, though the smaller areas can be trickier to get into with a brush.

The shadows don’t have individual names so we’ll go from left to right, top to bottom. All of these are incredibly soft and feel really nice.

First we have an incredible purple/silver/grey sparkly shade. This is 10 times cooler in person than it shows here, it’s really spectacular! Extremely soft and pigmented.

Second is a super sparkly cool taupe. Again very soft and pigmented.

Below that is a pale shimmery pink.

Next to that is a pale, icy blue shimmer.

Finally there is a really deep navy blue with light blue shimmer. Super pigmented and nice!

All of the shadows in this palette were also nicely pigmented and very soft. A great palette for those looking for warmer shades.

First is an intense copper metallic.

Next is a shimmery warm peach/pink shade.

Then we have a light champagne/beige shimmer.

Next up is a camel colored warm brown matte. So soft!

Finally there is a deep chocolate brown with gold shimmer.

Overall: I do love them! Both of these palettes contain really quality eye shadows. Super soft, but not crumbly. Extremely pigmented and well put together colors. I like both a lot but Entice Me wins out just slightly because of the purple and deep navy shades. These are well worth checking out!
