Happy New Year Everyone (its never too late), I know I have not been very frequent with my blog despite having so many looks and ideas bobbling in my head trying to get out!
Smashbox had released ‘On the Rocks’ holiday/ festive collection and I fell in love with the beautiful shades it had to offer. I adore the palette I got: Smashbox On The Rocks Photo Op Eye Shadow Luxe Palette
On The Rocks Photo Op Eye Shadow Luxe Palette is a limited edition holographic gemstone theme based palette. The packaging is sleek and displays an array of holographic jeweled tone eye shadows. The box has a flip cover with a strong side magnet to safeguard the palette from getting damaged.
It comes with a booklet tutorial on how to create 6 different looks from the shades. I wish they had engraved the eye-shadow names on the palette itself though.
I adore the diamond at the center of palette as a final touch to this gem palette. Smashbox managed to mix 28 shades of shimmer, frost, high shine and matte in a magnificently assorted palette. The left side exhibits browns and earthly day-tones while right transits into a bold smokey-party tones. Most of the eye-shadows are rich, smooth and highly pigmented (I was disappointed with two- three shades however). The eye-shadows have a bit of fall out but overall, its still an amazing holiday palette.
I was impressed for Smashbox sent me complimentary travel friendly samples: EYE SET Photo Op Eyeshadow Trio, Under Eye Primer, Full Exposure Mascara, Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream (SPF 35) and Photo Finish 24 hour shadow primer with my purchase.

I fell in love with this palette the moment I got my hands on it but as I mentioned there is a bit of fallout and two-three shades are somewhat stubborn to manage.
