It wasn't long ago that I reviewed the Smashbox Cali Contour Palette and they have since released the brand new Smashbox Cali Kissed Highlight & Blush Palette. The packaging is stunning, with pink and orange sunsets and palm trees on the front, giving off true Californian vibes. Arghhhh take me on holiday!
The Palette consists of six pans, our bigger than the other two and features four shimmer highlight shades and two matte blush shades that can all be used on both the face and eyes to create a California glow. The shades included in the palette are;
Crank It Up Champs - A warm champagne shimmer
Crank It Up Bronze - A bronzing shimmer
Persimmon - A gorgeous pop of matte coral
Pink Nightie - A delicate light champagne shimmer with a pink shift
Crank It Up Rose - A glittery pink rose
Dragon Fruit - A bright matte pink
With palettes like this, all the shades aren't going to suit every single skin tone, that's a given, but they shades that don't suit you, can be used on the eyes - I am loving a coral and pink eye look at the moment seen as we are into the warmer months. The blushes do look quite intense in the palette, but they do apply slightly sheerer on the skin, so don't be intimidated by them.
The two highlight shades on the left of the palette feel like silk and give a stunning soft shimmer to the skin. With Crank It Up Rose, this is something I would use more on my eyes than as a highlight but I image it would look beautiful on darker skin tones as a highlight. There is also a mirror on the inside of the lid, so this is great for on the go and for travelling with.
The Smashbox Cali Kissed Highlight & Blush Palette costs £35.00 and you can find it online at Smashbox here.
All the Loves,
