This is the Smashbox Beauty To Go Palette; it contains 12 eyeshadows, 4 cream liners and 1 eye primer. It's packaged in a 'leather looking' case, which i personally don't like i love it when packaging looks really creative and although its sleek looking i just don't like the packaging.
The inside however i do really like! I love the colour range of the shadows - really versatile range and i think there is something here for everyone. The layout of them reminds me a lot of Urban Decay palettes but these are numbered instead of having names.
You also get a look book filled with different eye looks, using various combinations of the eyeshadows in the palette. I'm debating whether to make a little blog series out of this, creating the looks mentioned and showing you guys - let me know if that is something you'd be interested in. As well, the books a clever little idea so people get more use out of the palette and helping people who might be less familiar with make-up be able to do more.
They very kindly give you a little eye primer too, now Ive not actually tried this yet so i can't really comment on it but I'm looking forward trying this out. So I'll have to get back to you on this!

The eyeshadows have good pigmentation a couple aren't as pigmented as others but they are very buildable, they blend easily and i found them pretty easy to work with. I believe this palette retails for about £35 but it can be found on Amazon and some discount beauty website for much cheaper, I'm liking using this palette and will definitely get a lot of use out of it.
Have you tried it?Natalie xx
