One of the names that instantly comes to mind when I think of a favorite cosmetics brand, is Smashbox. The products are high performance and pro-style, but they are also user-friendly (to the point where even the clueless can follow the easy steps provided with the products to get a good result) and glamorous. The colors take cues from the runway, but make them realistic and flattering for every woman.
Davis and Dean Factor are the co-creators of Smashbox Cosmetics, and they have a proud lineage: they are also the grandsons of another very famous makeup artist and cosmetics mogul: Max Factor. Smashbox products were born in a photo studio, to be used by professional makeup artists (as well as consumers at home). The resulting products make your look, flawless, even if you only have minutes to spare.
So what else is new for Summer, from Smashbox? Plenty!
The mini size means you can tote it with you when you travel. There’s also a “get the loo” guide included, and something new: A video tag is printed on the back of this palette—just scan it on your phone, and watch Pro Lead Artist Lori Taylor take you through the application right in front of your mirror!.
Seductive Summer Lips needs special products that look natural, but not washed out or dull. And, who can choose just one to take on vacation, to the beach, or away for the weekend? So Smashbox has created the Softbox Lip Collection ($29.00) six travel sized lip glosses in two formulas: Lip Enhancing (in three formulas: sheer (barely there color) True Color (some color, plus Vitamin E and sunflower seed oil), and Full color (brilliant color and three-dimensional pearlescent shine, plus Vitamin E) and there is also the Limitless Lip Gloss (long wearing, with SPF 15 and nourishing vitamins A, C and E and sea kale), to take you through the Summer.
There are four silky, vanilla-scented Lip Enhancing Glosses with two new colors in the True Color Formula: Brown Sugar (shimmery brown) and Glam (medium rose) , plus to two sheer colors: Afterglow (medium pink) and Illume (medium shimmery nude),. The two Limitless Lip Glosses include Infinite (baby pink), and a new one: 24/7 (deep berry). The glosses are shiny, luxurious, and well worth the money, as each individual gloss in full size is $18.00 and $21.00, respectively.
