Smashbox Double Exposure Travel Palette : Swatches & Review

Smashbox Double Exposure Travel Palette 
This Smashbox Double Exposure Travel Palette retails for $24US and $26CAN. The original full size version retails for $52US or $60CAN. With the travel palette you get 8 x 0.026 oz (0.208 oz) of product which is close to half (43%) of the full size 14 x 0.035 oz (0.49 oz) of product.

The price also reflects the 57% reduction in product.

Product:
These eyeshadows still fall under two finishes, shimmer and matte.

The shimmer shades have great colour payoff with a layer of larger shimmer particles.
The matte ones however where a bit powdery but still buttery.

The shades are all slightly sheer but build-able as well.

Colour: 
Silver is a light periwinkle blue with a shimmer finish.
Peony is a pale pink with a shimmer finish.
Quartz is a light peach with gold shimmer.
Veiled is a pale butter yellow with a matte finish.

Midnight is a smokey blue with a shimmer finish.
Haze is a blue based deep purple with a shimmer finish.
Copper is a warm deep brown with a shimmer finish.
Espresso is a neutral deep brown with a matte finish.

Wear: These where 6 hours without a base.

Packaging:
Is a thin credit card size compact that is very light weight. The surprising thing about the packaging is that the mirror it a polished metal plate to cut done on bulk. It also VERY thin.

Daylight swatches: Silver, Peony, Quartz, & Veiled.
Flash swatches: Silver, Peony, Quartz, & Veiled,
Daylight swatches: Midnight, Haze, Copper, & Espresso.
Flash swatches: Midnight, Haze, Copper, & Espresso.

Verdict:
I like this palette because it very easy to keep in your purse and the shades are what I would use daily or for touch ups. But this one does not have the same building shades found in the Full Exposure Travel Palette, so I recommend this palette used with another basics palette to account for your skin tone.
