SMASHBOX Autumn Makeup*

Hi guys,

lately I've received a HUGE and cute packagin' of Smashbox's latest makeup products for autumn/winter 2013! 

The Overview:
My package contains:

Smashbox Halo Long Wear Blush (shade: Blissful), Smashbox Jet Set Waterproof Eye Liner (Gel - shade: Deep Bronze), Smashbox Megatint Long Wear Lip Color (shade: Punch), Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream SPF 30 Dark Spot Correcting (shade: Fair/Tres Clair)

I personally prefer deep pigmented and high-quality makeup products - which Smashbox totally creates! Just a few products from their line aren't really my taste BUT the lipsticks are pretty well pigmented and REALLY longlasting!

This CC Cream is the first one I've EVER tried out (as I've tried a few BB Creams - which are a great alternative to huge and massive foundations/makeup creams!:)) and must say, that the shade Fair is the PERFECT shade for my skin durin' the cold autumn/winter months as I get really light/porcelain skin toned!:) The longlastin' formula and matte effect is also a great opportunity how to protect from shinning on the traditional T-Zone:) and the only negative point I've to say is, that it contains (which is kindly print on the packaging:)) Oxybenzone:( - that's one of the toxic chemicals - which should be avoid in makeup products!

And I'm sure, that such a huge and high-quality brand like Smashbox could use instead of Oxybenzone some other harmless/natural organic or non-toxic ingredients!

What says Smashbox about their CC Cream:

"It's our ulitmate complexion correcting cream! Reduce the appearance of dark spots and uneven skin tone over time while you prime, perfect, protect, hydrate, and control oil - all in one step!.  Wear alone or under foundation for more coverage."

Keep out of eyes. Stop use if irritations occours and keep out of reach of children.

2. Smashbox HALO Longwear Blush:

After I've packed the Halo Longwear Blush in the shade: Blissful out of its packaging I've opened it and was excited about the "Switch" technique - which allows the best portion/size of blush you'll need for your two cheeks!:)

It's well pigmented and the shade is a kind of vintage rose/middle-dark mauve shade. Which also stays for hours on the right place without gettin' darker or lighter durin' the day!:)

3. Smashbox Jet Set Waterproof Eye Liner:

This creamy gel-texture eye liner in the shade: Deep Bronze by Smashbox has a soft shimmer inside and it's pretty easy to apply it with an eyeliner-brush on your upper eyelid! It gives a middle-dark line and it's a great natural finish/touch for a day or even natural makeup look! - Great for work and school too - to give your eye the extra-kick!:)

The "real/worn" view:

I also like the long-lasting formula and the pretty glass packaging/jar - it's a great product!:)

4. Smashbox Megatint Long Wear Lip Color:

The matte-finish touch of the Smashbox Megatint Long Wear Lip Tint/Color in the shade: Punch is sooo pretty and it allows to wear a long-lasting and "clean-matte-finish" lip color - which is totally that what I've been searching for a long time. As durin' the long cold winter days it's sometimes really a "bad day" for lipsticks to protect from goin' wet and greasy! - That's why I prefer matte finish lipstick during autumn/winter!

What says Smashbox about their CC Cream:

" Mega color, mega impact! Developed at Smashbox Studios, our long-wearing lip tint conditions your pout perfectly with up to 8 hours of radiant, hydrating color."
