Review : Smashbox Cherry Smoke Photo Op Palette

Smashbox Cherry Smoke Palette Review

Last week I shared a rather extensive Beauty Haul with you guys. On a quest to find the new Smashbox Cherry Smoke Photo Op Palette for fall, I stumbled across quite a few things. But this palette is definitely the showstopper of my makeup collection at the moment! As much as I love summer, I’m always craving fall. I could live in fall year-round honestly, too bad that’s not even possible. #FirstWorldProblems

And after getting this beautiful palette it has been such a joy to work with every day! I am seriously excited about this guy and think any eyeshadow lover out there needs to consider adding this to their stash for fall!

If I had to give Smashbox Cherry Smoke palette a grade, it would absolutely be pulling a 4.0 GPA. For one, I think it’s an excellent value for what you get. But to boot, the selection of colors is literally perfect for fall and each are pigmented and smooth as butter!

When it comes to my history with Smashbox shadows, I only have an eyeshadow quad from them that I admittedly haven’t touched in a super long time. So, it was a bit of a happy surprise to realize how fantastic their formulation is!  I’d definitely have to rank the quality of these shadows up there, rivaling Stila – and even TOPPING Urban Decay. *gasp* Texture wise, they also give Chanel a run for its money because these are super soft shadows, ideal for blending.

You need this in your life. If there’s one new product everyone should get for fall – it’s a great new eyeshadow palette, and this one is a keeper!

My Sephora currently only has this available online, but you can pick it up in-store or online at Ulta.

What fall makeup are you wanting to get your hands on?
