The collaboration of Santigold for Smashbox Cosmetics collection is an eclectic tribal palette that will suit every skin tone. The limited-edition line for Smashbox cosmetics partnered with singer/songwriter Santigold a.k.a. Santi White. The eccentric artist is known for her hard-to-categorize style and music.

The reason this particular cosmetics collection differs from other celebrity-backed product lines is that Santigold was involved in every aspect of the project, from the makeup compact cover art to the color palette choice inside. The five color eye shadow compact is designed to resemble a serpent's head and is embossed with a snakeskin-like texture. The tribal compact cover was illustrated by Santigold herself. The lipstick ring is a fashion accessory encrusted in Swarovski crystals.

The main difference with the Santigold for Smashbox cosmetics collection is that it's made for women of all skin colors. She claims that as a brown-skinned woman, she has trouble finding makeup that works for her. Therefore, the boldly colored palette might not be in everyone's taste but it certainly will work for every skin tone.
