Smasbox Girls On Film SoftBox Eye Shadow Palette Review and Swatches

The newest Smashbox palette form the film collection retails for $42 (I used my 20% off at Ulta coupon) and is packed with neutral, every day shadows that are extremely wearable.
Colors (l to r): Fizz, Pebble, Minx , 2nd row Vanilla, Ignite, Sienna
There are an assortment of finishes ranging from matte to shimmers.

Fizz (shimmer) and Vanilla (matte) are great options for a highlight color. Ignite adds a punch of color without being over the top.
The only color that could use more pigmentation is pebble, but it is still very good and looks nice in the crease.  Minx is an absolute favorite with a gray, purple look and shimmer finish.  It's not too overboard for day-time wear. Sienna (brown) is the most pigmented in the palette and it's a gorgeous shimmering brown.

The one disappointment is that for the price, I feel like the inside packaging is cheap.  The box itself is nice, but the plastic that holds the eyeshadows in place in my palette is very loose.  Not a huge deal, but again, for the cost, it should have the packaging to match the price.

The shadows are very soft (be careful on first use if you are used to harder shadows b/c you will take too much) and very blendable. I always wear them with a primer, so I don't have problems with them lasting.

Overall Grade: 4/5
Repurchase: I would repurchase minx and the highlight colors.  Sienna is beautiful, but I feel that it's dupe-able.
