Hello favorite new eyeshadow, hello favorite new blush. Let me introduce you to Smashbox. Okay, okay, I’m pretty positive you’ve heard of Smashbox. But, I just had to share my two new favorite products. Without sounding like a total fashion newbie, I somehow managed to go all this time without ever using Smashbox. I must have been crazy!
Without further ado, meet the Smashbox Photo Op Eye Shadow Palette and the Smashbox Air Blush. Let’s start with the blush. Here I go again, sounding way behind the times. I have always used powder blush, but this is “whipped cheek color” — again, where have I been? I was so surprised when I took off the cap and saw that whipped texture, and even more surprised when I applied it to my cheeks and it blended with my skin right away. I’m a fan, obviously.
Next up, the eye shadow palette. Okay, I’m not exaggerating at all, but these colors stay on forever. Forever. Even those nights when I get home and I’m just too tired to take off my make-up (we all have these nights, right?) – I wake up the next morning with my shadow still on. Plus it doesn’t even appear smeared or spotty at all! Pretty nifty, huh?
Now that you’ve heard all about my new make-up obsessions, which products have you been loving lately?
The Image Factory Photo Op Eye Shadow Palette retails for $39 at Sephora.
The Icon palette comes with six different hues. With shades ranging from neutral, to smoky, to glittered, this is my go-to palette for evenings out downtown.
The Image Factory Air Blush Whipped Cheek retails for $29 at Sephora.
The cheek color comes in two different shades, dusty rose and berry bliss.
