Smashbox Trio Eyeshadows

Image credit:

I don’t typically wear eyeshadow, but I felt like my daily look was incomplete in some way. I had bought a Smashbox try it kit with deluxe sizes of many of their products and had the opportunity to try one of their trios.

The trio I got was “Filter,” with shades Vanilla (a matte white), Sable (a matte light brown) and Sumatra (a matte dark brown). All three colours that can create a nice, natural look with just one product. What I typically do is apply Sumatra to my crease, Vanilla to my inner corners and on my brow bones, and Sable all over the lid.

Especially as the colours are all matte, you do not have to worry about looking too overdone. It is a nice addition to your makeup look, adding some dimension on your eyelids. The pigmentation is also incredible. I have to be super cautious about how much eyeshadow I pick up with the deep brown colour on my brush because the lightest touch is more than enough. As a result, I find that the light brown is considerably closer to hitting pan than the dark brown.

If you are looking for some shadows, look into the shades they have because they have many options available. You can check out your local Sephora, or check out their site here ( What I also like about these trios is that all the colours within the trio go together beautifully and is sufficient for an entire look. The colours will also last on your lids all day so don’t fret about longevity! Considering that a little goes a long way, I do not see any major cons with this product overall.

Easy to Use
Final Thoughts

Although the price is a hefty one, considering all factors, it seems to be a worthwhile product.
