Smashbox's On the Rock Review

 Purchased by Me

So I did a little shopping at Ulta recently and I was just looking for nothing particularly when I came across Smashbox's On the Rock's palette. Now I've never tried any Smashbox's products before so I didn't really know what to think. So today I come to you with a Smashbox's On the Rock's review!

So first off let's talk about the packaging. I am in love with the holographic gem stones on the packaging. It's on the packaging, it's on the palette and it's on the look book inside, but that's not holographic.
This palette is very sturdy, I'm not going to be afraid to throw it in my purse and the mirror rocks.

On the inside of the palette you will see the theme still comes through with the big gem rock in the center of the 12 beautiful colors along with one of those plastic sheets that says the name of each color and let's be real I'll most likely lose it.
And under that plastic sheet are some gorgeous colors, these are perfect for the holiday parties.

Now that we've gotten into the palette let me explain why I bought this...

Need I explain more? The pigmentation with these colored are amazing and they are so smooth, I couldn't say no.
L-R Coronation, Vanilla, Nutmeg, Sapphire, Mist and Obsidian
This is all with no primer, from left to right we have Coronation a deep plum purple with eye catching sparkles. Vanilla a matte beige. Nutmeg a metallic gold-copper. Sapphire is a metallic sapphire. Mist is a shimmery snowy white lilac. Obsidian is a gun metal metallic with some eye catching sparkle.

L-R Blacktop, Opus, Chianti, Bourbon, Confectionette, and Midnight Emerald.
Also with no primer from left to right we have Blacktop a matte black with eye catching sparkle. Opus is a satin/matte pale almost white pink. Chianti is a shimmery sangria with eye catching pink sparkle. Bourbon is a deep dark chocolate brown also with eye catching sparkle. Confectionette is a pale metallic shimmery champagne. Lastly, we have Midnight Emerald a metallic emerald green.

So my thoughts on this palette are that the colors are beautiful. I'm in love with the pops of color and the finishes. My least favorite would have to be Blacktop, it didn't do anything for me the sparkle came through to me more than the actual matte black, I wish it were more black to rock out with these gems. For the most apart I see myself getting a back up because I can't stop playing wiht Midnight Emerald and Bourbon

This is an awesome small palette that is perfect for those holiday parties on the go. What's even better is it's on sale right now at Ulta for $18!!! I originally bought this on sale for $29 and it retails for $36. So I'd snatch this steal of a deal if you can.

So what are your thoughts on this palette? What's your favorite color in this palette? Let me Know.
