Smashbox Arced Liner Brush #21 Review

Share

smashbox-arced-liner-brush-21Smashbox Arced Liner Brush #21 ($20) Apply liner like a pro with our best-selling precision brush. The same brush head as our popular EYE LINER BRUSH #8 with an ergonomic bend to conform to the shape of the eyes, providing better control and flawless application in one quick, easy stroke. Use it to apply CREAM EYE LINER, JET SET WATERPROOF EYE LINER, or any EYE SHADOW along the lashline and inner rim.

My Thoughts:

This brush makes applying makeup along the lashline so easy. The bent tip allows for easy control and precise application. I love how thin the brush is too. This brush holds up very well and has lasted through many washes. If you find appying liquid, gel, or cream liner difficult, I highly recommend this brush.

Smashbox Fan Brush #22 Review

Share

smashbox-fan-brush-22Smashbox Fan Brush #22 ($18) This feather-light fan brush softly and seamlessly applies FUNCTION5 SELF-ADJUSTING POWDER FOUNDATION, SOFT LIGHTS, FUSION SOFT LIGHTS, BRONZE LIGHTS, and BLUSH. Use it to apply even the darkest shades lightly for a perfect, natural finish every time. It’s also a must-have tool for lifting away any excess shadow that may have fallen during application without disturbing makeup.

My Thoughts:

I mainly use this brush to apply highlighter/bronzer. It’s really light and soft. It hasn’t shed a  hair after many washes and it still works like it’s new. Besides using it  to apply highlighter/bronzer, it’s great for sweeping away loose powders and shadows and applying blush.  It doesn’t pick up a lot of product, which I love. You don’t have to worry about going over board with color.

Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer Review

smashbox-photo-finish-lid-primerSmashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer ($20)

What it is: An ultra-luxurious lid primer.

What it does: Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer creates the perfect canvas for eyeshadow application. Wear this universal shade under shadow to increase longevity, or create the perfect nude eye by applying over the lid for an even tone.

What Else You Need To Know: The exclusive formula contains Phytomoist, a plant-based hyaluronic acid for ultimate moisturization and amino acids for skin-smoothing benefits. Soft focus pearls help diminish the appearance of fine lines on the lids while the patented Qusome® delivery system ensures all ingredients penetrate the skin to deliver effective results.

My Thoughts:

Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer is sold exclusively at Sephora. I really like this primer, because it evens out the skin color of my lids. Sort of like a concealer, but not. It doesn’t work as long as Urban Decay Primer Potion, but Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer does work. I experienced no fading, creasing, or smudging of my shadow or liner. My favorite thing about this Smashbox primer is that I can wear it alone. This definitely works better than Smashbox Lip and Lid Primer and is cheapr too!

Smashbox O-Bronze Intuitive Cheek Bronzer Review

Share

smashbox-o-bronze-intuitive-cheek-bronzerSmashbox O-Bronze Intuitive Cheek Bronzer ($26) Get gorgeously glowing cheeks in your own perfect sunkissed bronze shade. This innovative creamy cheek bronzer instantly transforms from white to your own custom shade of bronze. O-Bronze is packed with our exclusive Goji-Berry C-Complex, ginkgo biloba, and pomegranate seed for antioxidant protection. Apply a small dab to cheeks with fingertips and blend, breaking beads to release your most natural bronze glow.

My Thoughts:

I think this bronzer is perfect for people with pale skin or who want subtle color, because the color is rather light. It’s a gel formula that contains beads that break to release the color when you blend. The bronze color is sheer, so you don’t end up with an unnatural orange color. I personally won’t be repurchasing Smashbox O-bronze, because I have to apply so much of the bronzer inorder for the bronze color to appear, and considering the size of the tube, it’s not worth it.

Smashbox High Definition Liquid Concealer Review

Share

smashbox-high-definition-liquid-concealerSmashbox High Definition Liquid Concealer ($18)  Our revolutionary new weightless concealer instantly smoothes skin and makes dark circles and imperfections virtually disappear. The good-for-your-skin formula includes cell-energizing ribose, soy, angelica extract and caffeine to reduce redness, dark circles and under eye puffiness. Soft focus pearls reflect light to minimize the appearance of fine lines and blemishes. The soft touch precision applicator provides the smoothest application for the most delicate skin areas. Provides buildable coverage with a natural finish.

My Thoughts:

I really like this concealer. It provides coverage, but not complete coverage, for my dark circles without caking and accentuating fine lines. The conclear has a texture that is smooth and creamy. It also blends well. Goes great with my Smashbox High Definition Healthy FX Foundation. I think it’s worth giving it a try.
