I'm a sucker for packaging, whether it's simple and sleek or bold and colourful, something unique is always fun. Smashbox have teamed up with singer Santigold to bring out a collection that definitely caught my eye! The collection is called 'The Santigolden Age' and really reflects Santigold's playful and arty personality. 
The collection has a sort of Ancient Egypt/Indiana Jones feel to it with pyramids, snakes and Aztec prints that I really love. The packaging feels really special and luxurious, it definitely stands out in my make up stash!

The Earth As We Know It Eye Shadow Collage has five shadows that can be used wet or dry with shades including a kelly green, sparkly cream, matte dark blue, sparkly forest green and raisin with rose gold pearl. It's not for the faint hearted as the shades are intense when dry and more so if applied wet. The shadows are very pigmented and soft, they blend smoothly too so you can make the colours as subtle or intense as you wish. 

I'm a neutral shadow wearer most the time but I've been wearing the raisin shade all the time and using the cream shadow as a highlight. I've braved the greens and blues too and it's not as scary as I thought it would be. It's not a palette I'm going to fully use daily, but as a limited edition product it's stunning to look it and use. 

If you are a fan of bright shades or a limited edition make up hoarder then it's definitely worth checking the Santigold Smashbox Collection out!
Would you wear the Earth As We Know It shadows?

  4. This is a pretty palette, both inside and out. It's a shame the forest green is only a small amount, that's such a lovely colour.

    The blue surprised me with the swatch, I didn't expect it to come out so dark from how it looks in the pan. xx

  6. I adore the packaging!!! It looks like an Album Cover!
    In the swatches the blue looks almost black! I suppose that's a good thing as a stark blue would be kind of scary!
