Smashbox is at it again, launching all these pretties for you to choose from early fall. Easy to apply color yet very pigmented. You wil only need one sweep to achieve an ‘eye focus’ effect. The pallet contains 14 colours but can be transformed into 28 colors as the colors in this pallet are waterresistant. De shadows change when the color is activated with ‘tap’ water making them more intense. I would recommend wetting the brush instead of holding your pallet under running water. The pallet (€ 49,50) contains a brush with two sides; one with a round tip, and one with a cut off for an precision liner.
Contouring of the face is still on point but using the right colors are key. This new contour kit (€ 44,50) pallet comes in darker shades, for a medium to dark skintone. The highlight is ideal as a transparant highlight powder, while the sculpt terracotta bronzing powder is ideal to contour your features while still looking natural on a darker toned skin. The shaping powder helps to define the physiognomy.
I’ve tried the Smashbox camera ready BB water (€ 38,50) and it’s a lovely product. It gives the skin a luminous, yet dewy effect, contains an SPF30 and hydrates the skin at the same time. The product melts on the skin. The nicest thing is that you can add on if you want more coverage without it looking flaky on to made up.
