Smashbox Product Review!

Hi Everyone!

I'm so excited to rave about the new Smashbox Beauty Snapshots Kit and the new Full Exposure mascara that I just picked up from Shoppers Drug Mart (I am crazed about my shoppers points! LOL)

The Kit included:
Fusion Soft Lights in Baked Starburst - travel size
Photo Finish Targeted Pore and Line Primer - travel size
Lip Enhancing Gloss in Pink Sugar

Limitless Eyeliner in Golden Ivy w/ sharpener!

Eye Shadow Palette in "Beauty Snapshots"

I really wanted to try this palette out because it looked like the perfect bridal colours and low and behold, I have used it at least 6 different times now for bridal, prom and even on one of the contestants vieing for the "Miss Teen Canada World" title! Hopefully I'll have pics up shortly :)

The Targeted Line and Pore primer is a good solid product. It works just as well as similar products in the same price range.
The eye shadows are all satin finishes and blend beautifully! I LOVE the champagne colour and pewter grey is stunning! The brush that comes with the kit is a decent crease brush.
I have now become a big fan of the Limitless Eyeliner (it's super smooth going on and comes with a sharpener on the end :), I wouldn't normally choose this "golden ivy" colour but it"s quickly becoming one of my faves for a classic Bridal look.
Speaking of classic bridal, the "Pink Sugar" lipgloss is the perfect colour. It looks much brighter than it actually is and has a little hint of sparkle... very pretty!

The Fusion Soft Lights in "Baked Starburst" is beautiful for that "dewy" J-Lo look but because it's so shimmery I prefer to use it as a highlighter for cheeks, nose and right above the eyebrow. You're definitely going to get a "Miami Glow" look with this one! ;)

Now... onto the "Full Exposure" Mascara!

I am a bit of a mascara hooch lol... so spending $22cdn on mascara isn't a huge deal for me... IF it meets my demands of lengthening, volumizing, no flakes, good brush and ease of removal... I know, I know I'm needy! :P

So happy to report that it has passed my test in spades AND has even stayed put during my sweating through boot camp...YAY! Yet, comes off so easily with eye makeup remover or even just my face cleanser!

So there you have it... definitely worth the $54 investment!

Btw... anytime you see these "kits" and you're on the fence about trying them, just go for it! It really is an awesome way to try out new products at a lower price. You may just find some new faves... I did! :)

Happy makeup shopping!

Hugs... Crystal xo
