LOVE the blush. Hate the eyeshadows. The colors are not pigmented. The only eyeshadow that i like is the light frosty vanilla color, and the rest are pretty much useless. Not pigmented at all. However, the blush is soooooo pretty. I use it everyday and scared that it will run out soon.

This palette is one of my favorites. It is completely eco-friendly which I love. The four e/s are all very pretty, pigmented shades. The blush is a nice matte pinky peach. I love matte blushes, makes for a great natural flush of color without all the shimmer. You can easily do a day to night look with the shades you get in this palette. Going green has never been so easy and fun. I would most definitely purchase this again if I could find it.

This is my all time favorite palette. At first glance I kind of didn't think the colors would compliment each other very well, but I was wrong. I actually use this all the time, there are four shadows; 2 matte and 2 shimmer and a blush. The pale ivory and deep purple are matte while the green and blue are shimmery but they're not over the top which I love, (shimmer is OKAY, but some e/s that are suppose to be 'shimmery' are more like glitter and THAT'S not okay). I really don't use the blush but to be honest, it's because I'm not a blush person. The packaging is very eco-friendly and adorable (wooden) but there's no mirror which isn't a big deal, the only real problem I have with it is that it doesn't close; there's nothing to hold it completely closed so you have to be careful about how you store it. But I LOOOOOVE it! My favorite, favorite, favorite!

I picked up this palette on *bay recently at a great price and I'm happy with it. I don't know as I'd feel the same if I'd paid full retail, but I hardly ever spend full retail on anything. I really like Smashbox e/s and these are no exception - nice pigmentation, blend easily. Pretty colors and a bit different from the norm, so you can go natural or full on smoky. The blush is great. It looks orange in the pan but is a peachy pink with no shimmer at all. Provides a nice natural finish, lasts well and is buildable. Overall, this is a high quality product and the packaging is unique and gorgeous.

Don't get me wrong, they combined the eyeshadows pretty well but even with my lids primed the colors are light. They're not as pigmented as I thought they would be. I guess what caught my attention was the feel of the wooden palette. The blush I can only use a hint of because it's pretty bright.

I got this at Nordstrom Rack for under $20. The colors complete my medium skin tone and the blush is very natural with a tint of coral. I love how pigmented the colors are....there is matte vanilla, shimmer obsidian, shimmer champagne, and matte deep brown purple. You are wear the colors during the day and darken the eyes with a smokey effects for night time. I love Smashbox colors! The container is make out of wood unlike the stardard plastic boxes; however, it is a different like more eco-friendly.

This palette is new from Smashbox. I was recently in Sephora at the Beverly Center in LA looking at makeup skincare since the 15% offer was going on. I asked of the workers there if they would honor the 15% off even though I didn't have the offer printed off and they said okay. So I looked around at all the brands, testing different kinds of colors, textures. I knew that I wanted something more all natural/paraben free.

I was looking at Smashbox at the foundations. I was showing my boyfriend another brand that doesn't match me, when I noticed this palette on display, It comes in a light colored wooden case. It includes 4 eyeshadows and 1 blush. Two eyeshadows are shimmery (light gold/deep grey-blue) and two are matte (ivory/dark plum-brown). The blush is an orangy pink.

The back of the packaging states that :
"Mother Earth Palette-Organic, Sustainable, Recyclable.
Think Eco Chic! Being "green" has never been so easy. The Mother Earth Palette is the perfect gift for someone special, or to keep for yourself! The palette includes 4 stunning shadows and a blush all made from certified organic ingredients, housed inside a compact and sleeve made from sustainable materials. With each purchase, a tree will be planted by Trees for the Future, a non-profit organization dedicated to creating sustainable environments through reforestation around the world. Make sure to recycle the palette!"

Talc, Corn Starch, Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Magnesium Stearate, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Tocopherol, Qrange Oil. May contain Mica, Titanium Dioxide and Iron Oxides.

The ony negative thing that I have to say about this palette is that there is no mirror included or brushes.

Quality is pretty good for an organic product. Price was semi-expensive for me, but at $45, it's pretty good for the amount of product you get.

Check it out now. This is a great organic item to add to my collection.
