HOT DEALS on Smashbox On the Rocks Photo Op Luxe Palette

Have you been wanting the Smashbox Photo Op Luxe Palette, but without the $42 price tag? Well your ol' friend G has your back!

Smashbox On the Rocks Photo Op Luxe Palette
(retail: $42)

Keep reading for the scoop...

Right now on the Smashbox site, this palette is now $29. Plus, you get free shipping and a free sample with all orders (no code required). Plus, there are lots of codes right now to snag some extra freebies HERE. Also, the smaller On the Rocks Photo Op Palette is on sale for $18 right now (regularly $36). This is also the current price at HSN (free shipping there too) and Ulta, by the way.


Over at Ulta, the Photo Op Luxe Palette is also on sale for $29, and the smaller Photo Op Palette is on sale for $18. If you received the 20% off prestige coupon from Ulta last week or this week, then that would bring your total down to $23.20 for the Luxe Palette or $14.40 for the smaller Photo Op Palette. Or heck, you could get both with that coupon and pay $37.60 total. 

I just added both palettes to my Ulta cart, then entered my coupon code and it promptly removed $9.40 from my subtotal, which is 20% off $47 (the price for both palettes). So this definitely works if you received that special 20% off code from Ulta.

Oh! And thanks to some kind readers on Instagram for the tip that these Smashbox palettes are also on sale IN-STORE, in case you're planning a trip to your local Ulta soon.

NOTE: If you're new to the Smashbox On the Rocks Photo Op Palettes, they have been generally well-received by bloggers/vloggers. Many people have said that the overall texture of the shadows is smooth/buttery with good-to-excellent pigmentation (although some shades appear to have fallout issues). You can check out some reviews/swatches HERE and HERE.

Special thanks to reader @makeupby_mslucy on Instagram for the tip this morning about the Luxe palette sale on the Ulta site!


  1. This palette is gorgeous!

  2. Sadly it doesn't work .I tried to purchase under the price tag there is a orange highlights says: excluded from coupons. I m really dissapointed

    1. Did you actually enter the code? Like I said in my post, this particular code does work (the restriction you mention is in reference to the code on their site, NOT the special one emailed to customers). You can read more about this in my blog post from earlier today, which I linked to above. Hope that helps.

    2. I called customer service I entered the one in site one E mailed to customers. They pointed me out orange highlighted excluded from coupons. Didn't work sadly

  3. I was able to get the Smashbox Luxe palette. The Real techniques duo fiber collection brushes were also 30% off today only. With the 20% off and my $11 rewards, I only paid $23 for the palette and the brush set! What a steal!!!!

  4. I wonder if this palette is $29 in the stores too.

    1. It is! Got the last one yesterday at my Ulta. Used my 20% off coupon too! Great deal.

  5. I was going to buy it from Ulta.. it's still in my cart.. but then I saw your post. I was able to get the large palette (I already own the small one), two .5oz of the BB cream (so basically a full size), a .5oz of the light primer, a deluxe sample of the under eye primer..eye primer..lash primer.. and mascara, AND a makeup bag.. small makeup remover.. and a few foil packet samples.... for $45 free shipping. I paid for the palette and the light primer.. everything else was free because I spent over $40.

  6. I ordered this from Ulta on the 11th with my 20% coupon, and they put it on sale on the 15th. My order hasn't shipped yet, and I'm just waiting for the email that it went out of stock. Grrr.

  7. Thank you so much for posting this! I needed something else to get my friend for Xmas and the mini was perfect! I got the luxe pro for myself as a birthday treat and oh my gosh it is even prettier in person! So in love with this! Thanks G!
