SMASHBOX Cover shot "Ablaze" palette Review + swatches

Hey my loves, as i am planning to travel this May, i of course had to go makeup shopping! I was on the hunt for a travel size compact palette, which i happen to find on the Smashbox website. I personally prefer a palette which has warm earth tones, as they are easier to transform from a daytime to evening to party look. Hence why i fell in love with this compact palette. They do have other travel size palettes from the cover shot range, so do have a look, however i shall be reviewing the "Ablaze" palette as i found it best suited me.

Packaging :

What first caught my eye once i received the palette was the 3D casing, bold yet effective! Also the size of the packaging is perfect for travel, fits right in the palm of your hand with a good sized mirror which i appreciate, as it can be a pain having to find a mirror when you need it.


The two larger shadows at the top of the palette are used as bases, this i found very useful as it gave a smooth canvas for the transition shades. The six smaller shadows are super bendable and pigmented which is what i look for in a palette. Moreover the ingredients used are cruelty free as stated on the website which is always a plus! Here are the swatches from the palette and the shade names.
Swatches on my arm are from right to left opposite of the palette.

6 Shades:
"Dark horse" "Throwback" "Torch" "Delirious" "Nirvana" "Siesta"  BASE  "Moccasin" "Relaxed

The palette is not scented 

Uk price online £24

I would highly recommend this palette, just for the fact that there are shades to suit everyone, from neon to natural as well as being compact perfect for on the go. The formula, is super bendable and pigmented which is perfect for photos and for everyday wear. As well as it being reasonable priced, let me know your thoughts on the palette, and which is your favorite xoxo.
