Today I have two wonderful Smashbox products to review on the blog.
Iv never really bought Smashbox and now I’m left wondering why, the products are stunning!! The packaging it also very pretty and I love the square lipstick package.
I’ve Joined www.beautybulletin.com and from a mother’s day competition I received these lovely items. If you don’t already know, Beauty Bulletin is a site where all us girls get together and review and chat about our beauty products and you can also sign up to receive beauty products to review for free! So ja..
I Recieved the Smashbox lipstick, in Fireball matte. It’s a stunning lipstick!! I’m very impressed with it, it’s such good quality that I would put it on the same level as my MAC lipstick. It’s a very bright colour and is matte, kind of a orange red tone. It’s just so bright that you have to use a mirror and make sure you are applying it properly cause you will see clearly if the line is wrong. The best way to apply this is to apply it perfectly and then blot it and dust with finishing powder and then apply again to finish the look and it will last super long!!! It really is long wear and since I’m a Coffee addict I can say it gets me through a few cups. This lipstick on it’s own can brighten up your whole outfit and create a look of its own. I wasn’t wearing anything too grand when I took the pics but it still looks lovely, lipstick can be your best accessory!!
The other item i got is, the Smashbox LA lights, blendable lip and cheek color. In shade Silver Lake sunset.
It’s like a large chubby stick that’s very cool 😎 it’s double ended with the Color on the one end and a cute little sponge on the other end that you use to blend it so you don’t have to dirty your brushes and other stuff. It really gives great radiance to skin, it’s a shimmery glow and has a creamy texture but isn’t sticky. Best way to Apply it is to draw a line on the cheek bone and then blend up on the cheek area using the sponge on the Back.
And as you can See from the photos it does brighten up the skin and cheek alot and gives a natural radiance and was good for highlighting the cheek bone (just excuse my slightly blotchy skin,I just had a chemical peel facial but that’s a blog post for a different day )
I took a swatch pic with a bit of light so you can see how the blendable lip and cheek color shimmers And glows !
Both items are great and I can definitely recommend them! Im enjoying themselves so much!!
