Review - Smashbox Reign Eyeshadow Palette in Monarch

Decadent mirrored compacts with 6 baked shadows in both matte and shimmer for higher pigmentation and longer wear. Wear the shimmery shades wet for a metallic, smoky look or dry for a gorgeous wash of luminous color. Use the matte shades as a base, or in the outer corners and crease to intensify a smoky eye. $42 each

I have a lot of different eye shadows and palettes. This is probably one of the most unique ones that I own. The presentation is simply stunning. A brown leather compact with a mirror and three different shades that can be worn in various ways. This palette is so versatile, wear it dry or wet for a more dramatic look. The middle of each shade is matte while the outside circle is metallic. The colors are so pretty. One of the hottest trends for fall is smoky eyes with contours and this palette will give you that and much more. This is a must have for your fall makeup collection.

Malikah says: I am so in love with this eyeshadow palette! The rich brown leather compact is so luxurious, it really makes your beauty routine feel special. The shadows have really strong pigments, helping you create a variety of sexy, chic, or dramatic looks. I especially love the daring burgundy shade. If the traditional black smoky eye is too much for your taste, the matte and metallic burgundy hues create a really modern take that look, giving you warm, rich, and sultry eyes. I've been wearing the shimmery champagne shade this summer, but I can't wait to start experimenting with more intense looks come Fall.
