Ever since the well known Urban Decay NAKED palette came out, a lot of brands have followed suit to come out with palettes that contain soft, light colored shadows. True, they are something that every girl loves, and practically versatile enough that one can wear everyday. Not too long ago Too Faced Naked Eye Soft & Sexy Eye Shadow Collection made it to one of the Sephora's best selling eye palette.
Now when summer 2011 is just around the corner, Smashbox is not letting the idea slip and came out with one. Strange enough, its yet another cardboard boxed palette. It also comes with a mirror.
Swatches (Without & With Flash)
- 9 (Left to Right, Top to Bottom)x 0.04 oz Eye Shadow in Nectar (matte peach), Vanilla (matte warm ivory), Flirt (pink beige shimmer with silver flecks), Lucky Penny (copper shimmer), Sugar (pink shimmer), Stone (matte taupe), Sienna (warm brown with bronze shimmer), Nude (matte soft caramel), Truffle (plum taupe shimmer)

Is this palette a dupe or a trend? I don't know. All I know is the eyeshadows are very pigmented (yes, even without a primer) Gorgeous shadows, workable liners(one grey and one brown), convenient brush. What do you think? Yea or Nay?
