The Smashbox Studio Pop Ultimate Palette features a ton of products – I’ve reviewed everything else in previous posts, which I’ll link below. This part is the lip glosses.
The Smashbox Studio Pop Ultimate Palette features 45 eyeshadows which I reviewed in Part 2 and Part 3. This part covers the blushes, highlights, bronzer and cream eyeliners. Side note: I found all the powder products in this grouping (blush, highlighter, bronzer) are deeper on skin than they appear in the pan – which is good, since they all look pale in the pan and they’re actually more varied than you’d think.
The Smashbox’s Studio Pop Ultimate Palette features 45 eyeshadows from their Photo Op formula. The quality in general is terrific – some are a bit better than others, but the “worst” shadows in this are quite good. I experienced no creasing with any of these – even without a primer. The wear time is well above average – with primer, it was excellent. I rank these on par with Bare Minerals Ready Shadows and higher than Urban Decay, if that gives you any idea.
Smashbox’s Studio Pop Ultimate Palette is a trifold palette that opens up to give you 45 eyeshadows, 3 blushes, 2 highlights, 1 bronzer, 9 cream eyeliners, 6 lip glosses, two brushes, a mirror and six “get the look” cards. It’s a limited edition Ulta exclusive priced at $59. They say it’s a $300 value. It’s hard to do the math to check that since some of these products are not from the permanent collection. However, the value of the shadows alone comes out to about $260, and a similar collection of cream liners costs $32, etc., so I think it’s very safe to say this is a $300 value.
