I had tried Smashbox eyeshadows in the past. It was an eyeshadow palette, I remember and I loved a few of the shadows from the palette. So I decided to try Smashbox Photo Edit Eye Shadow Trio on a whim.
Sephora says it is “An ultra-portable, pigment-packed eyeshadow trio that comes with three perfectly coordinated shades you can use to create complete looks in a snap.”
Each Smashbox Photo Edit Eye Shadow Trio is shaped like a camera lens and that's why the name I suppose. The shadows come in a plastic container with a see through lid. On the back of the trio's is the name of the shades. There are instructions at the back of a peelable sticker on how to create an eyeshadow look with your palette.
Smashbox Photo Edit Eye Shadow Trios have a powder formula. They come in various finishes satin, matte, shimmer etc.
Smashbox released these a while back. Moreover, they keep adding to the lot. The thing that I loved is that Smashbox made the Nudie Pic eyeshadow trio in 4 shades. Fair, Light, Medium and Deep namely. I picked the Nudie Pic in Deep which is a subtle, natural contour with deep shades.
Smashbox did an amazing job putting together three complimentary shades. The Shadows in Nudie Pic Deep are pigmented. There is no fallout that I experienced. You can create a simple look with just the three shades provided. These trios are great if you do not want an entire palette. Sometimes Palettes can be overwhelming. Which shade to pair with which other shade? That's where these trio's can help. Especially if you are a beginneer. Additionally, you might just want something basic. Then, these trio's with complimentary shades might just be perfect for you.
The shades in Smashbox Photo Edit Nudie Pic Deep Trio are very pigmented. However they are a bit on the drier side. This could be because it is an all matte trio. In spite of this I could create basic everyday looks with this.
- A great beginners trio eyeshadow
- Colors compliment each other, no thinking required
- Free of parabens and phthalates, cruelty free.
- Eyeshadows on the drier side and this could be because Nudie Pic Deep is a matte formula.
