Review and Swatches: Smashbox "Click You're It" Holiday Eye Palette for 2011

Smashbox - Click You're It.

Got this palette for Christmas from my little sister! =)
Here is my review on what I think about Smashbox's Holiday Palette from last year..



“Smashbox Colllection of 15 Shadows and 5 Cream Eyeliners, Plus Mini Photo Finish Lid Primer. Amazing array of glistening colors and matte to make up dark eyes, romantics eyes and more.

Smashbox - Click You're It.


It comes in a plain sturdy gossy apple red cardboard box holding 15 eye shadows and 5 cream liners (which can also be used as a base). The palette also includes a mini primer, mirror, and 3 flimsy front and back look cards (which makes 6 looks in total). The eye shadows do not have individual names and are just listed as numbers. I don’t find anything too creative with the whole packaging and it looks kinda cheap! I just wish that they put A LITTLE bit of effort into the packaging aspect and the palette’s name is kinda cheesy (“Click You’re It”). I do like that the box can be re-used since you can lift the bottom portion which holds the eye shadows/cream eyeliner tray. A strong magnet keeps it shut tight and it is easy to open.

Look Cards.


The eye shadows were pigmented but they didn’t wow me at all. Most of them were smooth and buttery and easy to blend but there was some fall out. I had to pack some of the shade on to my eyelids to make them look vibrant but other than that the eye shadows were good quality. The cream eyeliners were heavily raved about and I was so excited to try them out! Sad to say but I’m not impressed with them either. They smear quite easily since they don’t set unless you put powder eye shadow on top but don’t use these alone (like the Maybelline Color Tattoos). These are great for eyeliners but don’t expect these babies to be waterproof!

It’s a good palette but it doesn’t get me excited like “OMG I MUST HAVE THIS PALETTE AND SHOW EVERYBODY HOW AMAZING IT IS!!!” I do love it since my little sister Kimberly gave me this present for Christmas. I just wish that the cream liners had a better formulation so that they can set and not smear so quickly but they eye shadows weren’t all that bad. This would be a great palette for anyone who wants to build they’re collection or for anyone starting off with makeup since it comes with look cards, mini primer, 15 eye shadows, and 5 cream liners (which can be used as a base cream eye shadow). They can work a bit on the formulation and packaging but there are a variety of gorgeous eye shadows.

Here is an eye-look from one of their look cards using the shades #2, #7, #12, and #17.
