Purchased this from Sephora in "Shimmer". 10g of product is contained in a black pastic package with a clear screw off lid. Retail price is usually ~$30CAD. "Shimmer" is a lovely powder highlighter that applies slightly pinky and very frosted. Great for highlighting cheekbones and the brow bone. I use mine often and I've hardly put it a dent in it, not much product is needed for desired results.
This product is a great, quick way to make your face look fabulous. It gives my skin a natural glow that hides blemishes and the colors go great with everything!
I got this in under/cover. i like the blush. it isnt so pigmented which is great. i think it looks quite natural when i apply it on. the highlight side is nice but you dont want to apply to much cause it could look cakey. overall i like this product.
i bought this for 5 bucks at ulta which is the only reason i bought it. i cant afford to buy their makeup so when i saw this on special, i snatched it up without even looking. haha. i have it in under/cover. the color is ok, doesn't go on real dark. the highlighter has a lot of shimmer and can go on cakey. it might be because of my foundation and powder but i think there are a lot more affordable brands that look better. i'm a makeup junkie that just added another okay product to their stash.. err.. pile.
I own two Smashbox Blush Duo's. They are absolutely amazing and wonderful blushes, they are long lasting, go on evenly, there is tons of product and the colors are perfect- I was lucky enough to recieve them in a swap. Smashbox and MAC are by far my favorite brands when it comes to blush. The first Duo I have is Under/Cover- its a really great duo if you want a really natural blush. The color 'Under' looks like a light, shimmery rosy color- it isn't to pigmented which is why I like it so much. The color gives you a nice glow without looking to bright or overdone. The second color 'Cover' is to me, more of a highlighter- it works super well because its a nice pale, shimmery light pink. I despise overly shimmery highlighters, this one is subtle and delicate.
The second Duo I have is 'Prism/Plush' this Duo is super pigmented and just gorgeous! The color 'Prism' is a light pink, it has little flecks of glitter in it in the pan, but it goes on Matte and it gives the most perfect, pink glow- it is by far one of the best pink blushes I have tried (and I have tried sooo many without ever finding anything that worked) ....the color really reminds me of Benefit's Dandelion, but more pigemented. The second color 'Plush' looks like a pink-ish beige color with just a hint of violet- its a hard color to explain, it could be used as a contour color, and looks stunning as an all over blush....its very earth toned, but it is a little hard to blend. All in all, Im super impressed and love both my Smashbox Duo's- I use them all the time and simply adore them :) for reference Im NC20-25 with yellow undertones.
I have this in "Style/Icon" Duo and I just love it, it's a pinky bronze with shimmer in one shade the other is more matte. I have such pale skin and I was worried this would be far to dark for me but it's not, I apply it lightly and it gives me just the right amount of soft colour and glow that lasts the whole day. . Would repurchase.
Like the review before me, this review is for the Blush and Softlights Duo in Super/Model that was included in the Smashbox Beauty Resolutions kit and Runway Kit sold at Sephora & Ulta.
While I hated the eyeshadow palette and brushes that came in the kit, this blush duo is awesome. I bought the kit at least 6 months ago and tossed the blush in a drawer assuming the quality was as bad as the eyeshadows. I pulled it out this weekend and am amazed at how much I like it. One side of it is a tad glittery and light colored. It looks like it would be a decent highlight. The darker pink side is a perfect rosy pink color that just about anyone could wear. It reminds me of Wet n' Wild's dusty rose! Love it! It lasted througout an entire night at a hot sweaty crowded concert. Great stuff.
The only negative is that I can't stand Smashbox's blush containers. It's a pain to have a twist top. If you are in a hurry, you are in public and don't have a clean surface to set the blus on, you need a third hand. To open, hold the blush, and hold a brush. continued >>
This review is for the Blush and Softlights Duo in Super/Model that was included in the Smashbox Beauty Resolutions kit sold at Sephora. The blush is a wonderful glowing but not quite shimmery dusty pink, the highlighter a champagne color. Both sides blend on beautifully, although the highlight should be used sparingly as it can be intense. I would buy this product again, likely in a different shade set, based on this experience.
I use the softlights in supermodel almost every single day. It gives me a great wash of color and I can use the shimmer/highlighter side to contor my cheek bones. Over all its great, but I'm still on the search for something more.
I love all the soft lights!!! They just make your skin glow!! I use my BE fan brush and swirl it in the pot and stipple on my cheekbones, down my nose, and chin. I love using this for photo shoots to make the models skin look radiant an brightened.
