Beauty Review: Smashbox

Hello everyone!

I have a fun, little beauty review to share with you all today!

A few days ago, I received a few new Smashbox beauty products from Influenster to sample and review.  I was provided these items for free but all opinions are my own.

Beauty Review: Smashbox - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Be Legendary Liquid Metal – Brains ‘N Bronze – Retail Value $24

As you know, I love sampling lip products! When I saw this liquid lip in my box, I was very excited.

I haven’t tried very many liquid lipsticks, and I haven’t tried a single metallic lip product before.  So this liquid metal lipstick was quite intriguing for me! I have determined that I like the formula and the shine, but the actual color of this lipstick isn’t for me.

I have very fair skin and don’t see myself wearing this bronze shade too often.  I may be able to pull it off during a fancy, evening party but not any other time.  Unfortunately, I don’t go to too many fancy, evening parties!

Cover Shot Eye Palette – Matte – Retail Value $29

Eye shadow palettes are my other favorite to test out!  I went through a faze two years ago and bought at least 10 palettes over the course of a few months!  Excessive, I know!  During that time, I did, however, discover what kind of shadows I like and what kinds I don’t.

I’m usually drawn to champagne colored shimmer shadows.  They’re so pretty, natural, and versatile.  I have so many of them already, that it’s probably for the best that there wasn’t a single one in this palette.  Up until now, I really didn’t like matte shadows.  I found them more difficult to blend and not as exciting.

Since receiving this palette, I have discovered that I do indeed enjoy matte eye shadows!  Imagine that!

I love how this palette has two different looks to choose from.  There’s there browner tones of the left and the pink berry tones on the right.  I’ve used them both multiple times and prefer the browns.  That dark purple shadow on the right seems to get away from me and sometimes it looks like I’ve given myself a black eye! Whoopsie!!

I’ve loved sampling these new releases from Smashbox this last week.  I’m definitely adding this matte palette into my weekly line up of eye shadows!

I’m going to try to find a time and place to wear the liquid lip.  Perhaps I’ll try mixing it with something a little lighter?

Have you tried either of these products before?

If so, what did you think of them?
