Smashbox Santigold Eye Shadow Collage
An out-of-this-world, limited-edition collection by artist Santigold, exclusively for Smashbox. For this exclusive collection, Santigold plays with the notion of approaching the post-2012 Golden Age – an age where the earth as we know it ceases to exist, revitalising itself and morphing into its own beautifully balanced, utopic mirror image. This is a world where the earth, stars, humans and aliens and all co-exist harmoniously.
Featuring Santigold’s distinctive collage art, these palettes includes 5 shades of the Smashbox luxe wet / dry shadows to mix and match any eye look.
Availability: Smashbox counters nationwide, at selected Edgars, Red Square, Foschini and Woolworths stores
What we say:
When I first saw this product I was completely blown away by the packaging. The front of the case features an absolutely stunning image in bright colours – it reminds me of a Fauvist painting! When you open the case, you’re presented with a very interesting design: five eyeshadow shades in the form of a snake’s head! It is available in two colour variants, and I have been using “Earth As We Know It” which consists of shimmery green, soft cream, dark blue, forest green and raisin. I must admit that when I first opened the palette I was a little bit confused by the colour combinations, as these are not the colours I would usually pair together. However, once I started playing around I found that some of the colours actually work very well together, and as individual shades, they work extremely well too!
The colour lasts all day long and I didn’t experience any creasing on my eyelids. The shades are very rich and don’t fade upon application. Overall I am very happy with the quality of the product, and even though it’s a specialist range of products, it stays true to the Smashbox quality.
I give Smashbox 10/10 for originality and packaging design, as this is really one of the most original ways I’ve ever seen eyeshadow presented.
