Smashbox Photo Op Eyeshadow Trio in Focal Point
While we were at Wrentham Village I also visited the Cosmetics Company Store and found this lovely trio from Smashbox. I quite like Smashbox shadows and the shades in this trio are super nice! The Photo Op trios are $36CA, but I purchased mine for $10!
The shades in the Focal Point trio are Champagne, Flamingo, and Java. As you can see in the photo, you can peel back the sticker for a "get the look".
It's quite basic and simple. I think most people would be able to figure this out without the instructions..! It could be nice for beginners, though I'm sure they've probably seen diagrams like this one a hundred times before! :p
So, here's a nicer look at the shadows - very pretty! Champagne is described as a "shimmery gold beige", Flamingo is described as a "shimmery coral pink", and Java is described as a "deep matte burnt brown". I don't quite see the 'burnt brown' in it.. I just see it as a deep, matte chocolate shade.
Here are the swatches, and I apologize for the quality of the photos! These were done with no primer and one swipe each, excluding Java which I had to build up a little so it was more accurate to the pan.
These shadows are very nice and soft and smooth. Champagne and Flamingo are really nicely pigmented and translate very well onto the skin. Java is a bit more sheer and like I mentioned, needs to be built up to match the shade in the pan. It can also apply a tad uneven sometimes. These things can be pretty common for mattes, though!
Overall, I really like this trio! I'm sure we all have a million neutrals, I know I do, but I think this trio is a nice addition :)
