If, like me, topping up your makeup half way through the day, feels like a bit of a bore, Smashbox has the lipgloss for you! Unlike most of it’s competitors, which keep lips glossy for an hour or so, then disappear off into the ether, Smashbox’s Be Legendary Lip Lacquer is designed to last and last.
Packaged like a regular lipgloss, with a doe foot applicator, you apply just like a regular gloss. It feels smooth and creamy on the lips, and I’m obsessed with the warm pink colour! If you’re looking for a lip colour for the summer, one of the Be Legendary Lip Lacquers might just be it! For the first hour or so, it’s a glossy wash of colour, which is the perfect amplified nude colour. Then, as the day goes on, it wears down to the prettiest stain. It’s a genius idea that keeps you looking groomed all day long, and it is the perfect choice if you’re travelling!
Smashbox Be Legendary Lip Lacquer is priced at £19.00 and is available here (UK) and here (US)
As a rule, the weather over the past few weeks can be considered changeable at best. At worst, it’s been hot, sticky and humid all at the same time, so keeping my makeup on and looking fresh has been something of a priority! Thankfully, I’ve just discovered Smashbox’s Photo Finish Primer Water which is basically magic in spray form!
Packaged in a chic and easy to use spray bottle, the Photo Finish Primer Water is a 3-in-1 product which promises to provide hydration, sheer radiance and primer when applied to skin. In a word, it’s genius! Since the formula is free of alcohol, silicone and oil, it’s the perfect choice if you have dry or sensitised skin like I do, as it won’t clog or irritate.
I’ve I’m doing a more ‘full-on’ makeup look that requires a bit of foundation, I apply a few squirts before I start with my base. The Photo Finish Primer Water has a gorgeous fresh scent which has a hint of melon. When I’ve applied it prior to makeup, my foundation and concealer feel like it just glides on. If I’m having a more natural makeup day, I tend to just apply a spritz once everything is on. The mist feels light and refreshing, and it leaves my skin feeling hydrated with the perfect amount of glow. The magic of Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water, however really appears as the day goes on. My makeup does. not. move! Seriously, on days I’ve used the Primer Water, I only need to touch up my lipgloss as the afternoon progresses!
Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water is priced at £20.00 and is available here (UK) and here (US).
