Quick Review : Smashbox Masterclass Palette in Lighting Theory

(Image courtesy - Musings of a Muse)

Smashbox is one brand that is consistent in providing best of quality products that would cater to a lot of professionals while making it compact and simple to all what one makeup professional would require in his/her palette. I have owned a lot of their palettes as they are extremely convenient to use and prefer this brand over many when it comes to amazing quality, price and the variety of shades present.

While having a lot of other Smashbox palettes, I couldn't resist laying my hands on the Sephora Fall 2016 Smashbox Master Class Lighting Theory palette. A complete addition to my kit on the days when I don't want to use too many products or tight on luggage carrying. They have considered a professional makeup artist and a makeup aficionado's makeup demands alike and made a palette that could cater to a variety of makeup fields. Mesmerising!!!

So lets have a look at this amazing palette........

In this edition, Smashbox has added creamy textures to their Masterclass palette and its just so interesting.


The box is so cool to look at. Extremely informative and has all the information needed to get you know the product better. Just like the previous editions of the Masterclass palette, even this one has the hard binding college book like look which is sturdy and does immense favours while traveling with it. It is really heavy that ways but it generally encapsulates almost all the requirements and is a great product to go for.


What it is: 
A face palette to create an even complexion, add depth and dimension, cast a high-voltage glow, and achieve eye looks for any occasion. 

What it does: 
This palette has everything you need to create pro makeup looks with a perfectly lit glow. Become a master at lighting with this palette for looks that flatter in any light. Inspired by pro-lighting effects used on set in Smashbox’s L.A. photo studio, every formula in this palette—from color-correcting and contour creams to high-voltage highlighters and velvety shadows—was designed to demystify contouring and simplify strobing for everyday looks that stand out under office or evening lights. 

This palette contains: 
-16 x 0.02 oz Photo Op Eye Shadow in Sand (pastel beige matte), Totally Nude (pinky beige matte), Nectar (peach matte), Almond (warm nude matte), Truffle (taupe matte), Light Wave (midtone brown metallic), Sunrise (warm gold metallic), Sunlight (rose gold metallic), Optics (deep gray metallic), Metallic Violet (deep purple metallic), Metallic Bronze (bronze metallic), Metallic Brick (red brown metallic), Nocturnal (navy metallic), Blackout (black matte), Sumatra (dark brown matte), Backlit (black with red pearl metallic)

- 4 x 0.04 oz Cream Color Corrector in Lavender (corrects sallowness/yellowness), Green (corrects redness), Peach (corrects dark spots for fair to medium skintones), Orange (corrects dark spots for darker skintones)

What else you need to know: 
Because Smashbox is always developing looks for the camera in its L.A. photo studio, their pro artists are experts at re-creating lighting scenarios on-set—from bright daylight and office florescence to magic hour and after-hours club lighting. This palette includes full face charts for every lighting look. Each palette pops in and out so you can take each of them on the go. 

This product is free of sodium lauryl sulfate, fragrance, and talc.

I personally have to try this out and I shall post it with a lot of makeup pics on one of my upcoming posts.
