Smashbox Photo Edit Eye Shadow Trios (+swatches!)

Smashbox has snapped! Okay, that was a terrible camera pun, BUT Smashbox really did go off with their latest launch, and their first of 2018! Smashbox has just launched 16 highly pigmented, super blendable, brand new Photo Edit Eye Shadow trios. Each trio retails for $22 and are available at Ulta, Sephora, and at

Below are swatches of each trio! I have yet to use them on my eyes, so I can’t tell you anything about performance yet, but based off the swatches the formula is consistent and packs high pigment. The metallic shades in the trios are unbelievably creamy and the color payoff is insane! I was super impressed by each of them! My favorites so far are “It’s Fire”, “Showmance”, and Day Rate.

I think these little trios are adorable and the pigmentation is great. These are amazing for beginners in makeup or girls that just want easy makeup in the mornings, however I am a little confused about the price point. The Cover Shot eye shadow palettes that were launched last year had 8 shades in them and were available for $29 with 0.21oz of product, whereas these only have 3 shades and are $22 with 0.11oz of product. Smashbox is a higher end brand, so higher prices are expected, but I just don’t really understand what they are basing the price of these off of. It seems to me $18 would be a more realistic price point for a small trio. What do you guys think of the new trios? Are you planning to pick any up?

  1. I am loving that metallic silver color I’m “pinned” and the lilac/wisteria whatever you want to call it light lavender color in “#repost” but yeah at that price point I probably won’t be buying any. They are super cute though… and would’ve made cute stocking stuffers, oh well.
