Smashbox came out with 5 small loose powder eye shadows and they are all just a crappy product. Watt is a shimmery coppery burnished orange/rust color. It isnt screaming orange but a peachy melon with more gold/bronzzey copper tones in it. Looks nice all over the lid for a shimmery tan looking glow. It doesnt last all day, starts to fade after 5 hours and creases slightly. Small pot retails for $16. SKip this and if you must have loose shadow, go for MAC pigments or BE. This is nothing special.

smashing watt is a sparkly orange gold loose powder. and while it is beautiful when used as a shadow, i'm a little disappointed i can't really wear it as anything else. i purchased it to use as a highlighter, but can't because its a little too orange for my skintone. i would not consider it a glitter, i can only describe it as a sparkly shimmer powder that's not chunky or gritty at all. i won't repurchase this shade but i'm going to purchase some of the other shades, as i have a sick obsession with highlighters and never seem to feel like i have enough of them.
