Smashbox Softbox Collection Summer 2011

I came across this Smashbox Softbox Collection in Sephora and totally and completely fell madly in love.  I didn't end up getting it, but my friend did.  The shadow palette has colors to die for and the texture of the shadow is extremely silky, soft and not to mention amazing pigmentation.  The colors are earth tone, and it does remind me a little bit of the Urban Decay Naked Palette except the texture is completely different and the shadows are luminous and multi-toned.  The collection is also made with no paraben  Take a look at the swatches that I did below.
