Australis Totes Smokin Palette - Swatches

Hey everyone

So today I have for you swatches of the new Australis Totes Smokin Palette.

I found this yesterday at Target - it's not up on the Australis website yet so I'm not sure when the actual release date is :)


First Impressions

These shades are taken from their permanent eye shadow quads in Choc-a-block, The Big Smoke, Bees Knees and Fancy Pants. They can be applied wet or dry.


Nice packaging :)


The shades


Swatched Dry / Wet


Swatched Dry/Wet

My picks for colours are the copper and violet shades :D

I believe that the formula of these shades is very consistent with the regular Australis eye shadows. The texture is quite dry and soft in consistency. I wore these on my eyes for 6 hours yesterday and the colour in the crease faded a little in intensity but the lid colour was great and there was no creasing :D I think this is very, very similar to the Australis Nude Palette in texture and performance so if you liked that you should definitely pick this one up!

This retails for $10, I found it at Target.

    1. I was never into eyeshadow until I was forced to use it as part of a halloween costume. It's actually super easy once you get the hang of blending :)
