Brand new Smashbox Double Exposure Palette* is hitting the stores on 7th January (RRP £37), so get ready to get it! It's an amazing palette containing 14 shades that transform into 28 with adding just some water. Each shadow changes in one of four ways when wet - the shade amps up vibrancy, gets deeper, turns metallic or adds sparkle - so the possibilities are endless. I think it's a genius way of updating a palette and a certainly its main selling point - it's like having two palettes in one! A special double-ended brush is included for foolproof application with domed side to absorb just the right amount of water for maximum colour and angled side to create a precise line when wet or diffused line when dry.
I'd definitely recommend a gentle water mist to use for wetting the brush, not a full-on splash of water. I've used The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist (since I saw makeup artists use similar technique at the backstage of London Fashion Week), but I also want to let you know that Smashbox is releasing Photo Finish Primer Water (RRP £20) on 18th February which will have three main uses: prime to create sheerest canvas for makeup application, setting the makeup and refreshing throughout the day to wake up the skin. It can also act as a gentle mist to damp the brush and achieve desired result.
What do you think of this latest addition to Smashbox family?
