Yes, I am a makeup junkie. With Smashbox, I’m like a kid in a candy store – one of my all-time faves! I love the quality, the colors, the style. I love that they are always on the cutting edge with new products and ideas.
Smashbox Cosmetics gets its inspiration from Smashbox Studios where the world’s top makeup artists, photographers, celebrities and models help create backstage-tested products. Smashbox is your go-to arsenal for ‘smashing’ results every time.
Reviewing the Limited Edition Pretty in Pictures Holiday Set was a total joy for me. This festive kit has everything to get you prepped for holiday parties and pictures packaged in a sleek keepsake photo box. A $230 value for only $89 at Smashbox. Also, check out their videos and tutorials for the Hottest Looks.
Inside you’ll find:
– Metallic Proof Cream Eyeliner Palette.
– Soft Lights.
– Two Photo Op Eyeshadow Trios.
– Full Exposure Mascara.
– Two Double-ended Lip Enhancing Glosses.
– Photo Finish Foundation Primer
I love the cream eyeliner palette – it’s small and supersleek to take with you anywhere with 10 sultry hues of their best-selling cream eye liner. You’ll find shades such as amethyst, emerald and blue topaz along with onyx, platinum and bronze. I mix and match for the perfect shade and it just glides on so smoothly, highlighting and enhancing your eyes professionally.
Complement this with the eyeshadow trios. They are soft and vibrant with many color combinations to choose from, great pigments that stay. I can put them on before I got out and not worry about them fading.
Full-Exposure mascara is their new studio-tested mascara. It is on my top list of mascaras now since it went on really smoothly, defined my lashes well and there was no clumping or caking. It does a great job of lengthening and volumizing. Definitely a keeper.
On to the Photo-Finish Foundation Primer. This is probably one of the best products out there, and one I didn’t even know I needed until now. Colorless and silky, it has vitamins A and E, grape seed extract and green tea to help soothe and protect skin. It helps with fine lines and pores by filling them in subtly to make your skin softer with a very smooth finish. I use it after my moisturizer and just before my foundation. It’s super light and I’ve found it helps my foundation stay on all day and look natural. There is also a Photo Finish Foundation Primer Light for those with oily, acne-prone or sensitive skin.
The Soft Lights is a silky shimmery powder. It mixes well with blush and gives a subtle, natural glow.
This brings me to a new favorite of mine. I really love the Girls on Film Blush Rush in Pose. Pose is a very soft rose color that is amazingly natural with a matte finish. It isn’t overpowering, but if you want subtle elegance, it’s perfect. What’s also cool is that it has a mirror that swivels out from the bottom of the blush. Very portable and you can take it anywhere.
Finishing up, I will just say that Smashbox lip glosses are by far my favorite of the many many lipglosses I’ve tried. I really love their Snap You’re Fab Holiday Lip Gloss Set. They go on supersmooth and light and are shiny/sparkly depending on the style. My favorite aspect is that they are not sticky or tacky in any way. If I have to reapply, that’s fine, because I love the look and feel. The Holiday Flash Double Ended Lip Glosses are great because you can throw one in your purse and pocket and be set.
So, by now, it’s clear that I love Smashbox and I’m thrilled that they’ve offered one of my readers a fabulous Holiday Kit!
