Have you guys seen the Smashbox Spring/Summer 2015 Collection yet? Well, let me show you some of it!
Smashbox Spring/Summer 2015
It’s pretty dang gorgeous, wouldn’t ya’ agree? Some if it I haven’t been able to test, as I snapped pics quickly before I dashed out to California-yes, again haha. But I have tested the lipsticks and have some glorious hotel pics of them on my lips. 😛 But lets talk about some of the other pretties first!
Smashbox Bronze Lights Deep Matte $39
This bronzer is infused with Smashbox’s Photoset Mineral Complex so that it stays put for up to eight hours. It’s really smooth and finely milled and I bet it blends like a dream!
The colour is fantastic too as you can see-not orange at all. I can hardly wait to get home and use it!
Smashbox L.A. Lights Blendable Lip & Cheek Color $36
Hollywood & Highlight is a sheer pink pearl, creamy highlighter and Malibu Berry is a rich berry blush.
Pretty huh? They swatched super creamy and felt like they’d blend quite well onto the cheeks. I think this berry shade is a touch too dark for me, but walking around Disneyland,(there’s a Sephora at Downtown Disney, so yeah….I tend to stop there LOTS hahaha) I’ve been eyeing Silver Lake Sunset which is the prettiest peachy pink blush I’ve seen in a long time. It might just make it home with me yet. Apparently you can use them on your lips too!
Smashbox + Donald Robertson: Photo Angle Pure Pigment Gel Liner $29
Ok, this looks and sounds familiar, hey? From the Sephora website:
The unique flexible tip features a versatile, angled shape that lets you create any line from thin to thick. Plus, the creamy formula glides on for a smooth line every time. With up to 36 hours of non-stop wear, you never have to worry about smudging, flaking, or fading. This waterproof formula dries instantly for a head-turning look that lasts.
I didn’t like the one from that brand that starts with a B-it was horrid. This one is pretty similar I have to say, but I don’t hate it as much. The formula is better-not as flaky and crumbly. You still have to twist some out onto your hand and then dip the brush into it, otherwise you’ll end up with a glob o’eyeliner that’s not pretty. But it’s easier to apply, smoother and works just that little bit better. I love the colours they have and I keep looking at the Lilac shade because DUDE-it’ll match my hair! And it lasts and lasts! I wish I could show you a pic, but alas my iPhone is all I have and I can’t get a nice enough closeup to show you.
Smashbox + Donald Robertson: Be Legendary Matte Lipstick $23
These LE Matte lipsticks are NICE. Donald Robertson btw, is an Instagram Artist and his work is really colourful and great! Look it up!
The shades I have are Femme Fatale Matte which is a vampy plum, Punch Drunk Matte which is a bright raspberry( MY FAVE!) and Mauve Matte, a mauve pink.
Creamy and pigmented, they feel pretty good on the lips for a matte lipstick. They last forever too, at least until your next meal haha! They wear off beautifully as well. And not a bad price I do have to say since most lipsticks are starting to cost well over the $30 mark these days.
Here’s those glorious hotel pics I was talking about:
I like them! I say they’re pretty comparable to MAC mattes, so if you like those, these will be up your matte alley.
There’s an event happening in Edmonton next week with Smashbox and I’m officially inviting you if you happen to live in the area!
It’s on Friday May 8 and Saturday, May 9 from 12pm-8pm at Sephora West Edmonton Mall. A Smashbox Artist will do your makeup using some of these Spring/Summer2015 products, and they’ll teach you how to contour like a pro because #ShapeMatters. And if that’s not enough, you’ll get your picture snapped by fashion photographer Kyriakos and take home a USB of Pro headshots! It’s a minimum purchase of $75 that goes towards products of course, but HEYYYY???!!! Isn’t this a really cool event? I wish I was in town! Just phone the Sephora Store 780-425-3788 to book your appointment. I’d hurry up because this is pretty sweet if you ask me!
Whaddaya’ think? Anything from the Smashbox Spring/Summer 2015 collection appeal to you? I really do wish I was in town, as I’ve never had my portrait taken by a professional fashion photographer before, have you? I bet it’s fun! If you’re gonna go let me know! And upload your pics on Instagram using the hashtag #ShapeMatters and tag me @beautyreflections too so I can see your pretty pics while here in California!
