new smashbox goodies

I've been so awful about sharing new beauty finds lately but these Smashbox products I got my hands recently are too good not to gab about:

This under eye brightener is my new favorite product. I apply it underneath my concealer and the brightening effect is great. The consistency is creamy and very light. You could even use it as a highlighter on cheek bones, the peachy shimmer is gorgeous.

I'm head-over-heels for this eyeliner, not only because it has a built-in sharpener (finally!) but because it's so wonderful for use on your water-line. It's incredibly long-wearing and waterproof, but glides on easy and smudges for an effortless smokey eye.

This was my first Smashbox mascara and their Hyperlash didn't disappoint. The brush is actually a brush and comb in one. I've been using the regular brush side for everyday and reapplying with the comb for more drama at night. 

This is my second bottle of Smashbox's Photo Finish Lid Primer and won't be my last. It's a great, universal beige and it does exactly what it claims to: increases the longevity of your shadow, evens tone, and prevents creasing. I'd definitely recommend this one.

If you've been reading my reviews for a while, you probably know I'm hesitant to buy palettes. I feel like for a lot of people they can be a great value, but because I'm so picky, I often only use 1 or 2 shades from a set. Well, this palette totally changed my mind. I love every single one! The shades are quite different from the photo on the box but nonetheless, gorgeous. Fizz (a sparkly, but subtle champagne) and Minx (a purply gray shade) have become my everyday favorites.

Have you tried any of these Smashbox products? What are your favorites from their collection? I can't wait to try more!

  1. Smashbox has always been one of my favorite makeup lines... I can't live without their Photo Finish Lid Primer!! It works wonders and I HATE getting creases in my eye shadow or eyeliner that crawls up!!
