Have this in Radiance which is a fushcia pink type shade. Bright and cool toned. I don't use it everyday but its great when you want a heavier coloured blush look. It still goes on sheer though so you can build up the colour. Lasts well and good quality. My first Smashbox product and I am interested to try more.
Smashing Designer - nice subtle shimmery peach. It's a good daily color that provides a bit of glow.
Typically any shimmery blush will make me look really weird by the end of the day because my temples tend to glow naturally. I like mattes due to this but I like this blush a lot! It has some shimmer so it adds a different effect (compared to a matte blush) without me looking like an oily monster in a few hours. Pigmented and easy to blend out plus the it stays on pretty well.
Nothing too special about the packaging. Just a standard screwtop. Would purchase again or try out another color :)
Smashbox Radiance blush, a bright candy-pink with minimal shimmer. This is my HG candy-pink blush. I was looking around Sephora and this colour took my breath away. If it was absolutely perfect it would have no shimmer at all, but beggars can't be choosers right? Right.Anyway, I've been on the lookout for one of these babies for years, and now Smashbox has made my dreams come true. I don't think the price is too bad either IMHO. I bought a Lancome blush a few months ago and it is nothing compared to this, and I think I paid the same price for less product and more fancy compact. Well I never like the brushes that come with any compacts so I always use my own, making Smashbox the way more economical option. Hurray Smashbox.
I love Smashbox Beechwood. I finally was able to shell out the $30 (gasp) to buy this (w/ shipping from their website) because I can't find that great perfect shimmering pink color anywhere else. For awhile it was a seasonal color, but I checked their website and they're still selling it. I'm very picky about the pink color I like and this is the perfect color - I don't like any orange or brown tones. The downside is that I'm going through it pretty quickly since I put it on a little heavy since it's such a light, shimmery shade. But it is THE color and I'll buy it again. If you like pinks, try Beechwood.
Although I liked the texture of this blush and the amount of pigment in it. It broke me out so I had to discontinue use after I was only 1/3 of the way through.
My favorite blush color from Smashbox is Smashing Publish, which is a pink blush with peach undertones. I don't look natural in any peach colored blushes even with a tan, but this one is gorgeous and if applied lightly looks very much like a natural flush of color from within your skin. Very silky texture and no glimmer, frost, or sparkles to the powder. I prefer cream blushers from Max Factor over powders for the dewy factor, but this one is a very close contender to becoming a new favorite.
I have Golden Ray Beige and I love it. It is a nice, natural color that blends very well. It is a soft, subtle look and last all day. I can't wait to buy more of the blushes.
I purchased smashing emotion. Wow, what a great subtle colour for my medium skin and I like how there's a bit of sparkle to it, but not too much.
I have several of the smashbox blushes. All are very nice and go on smoothly. Blending is good as well.
Best texture .. Smashing Beachwood is the perfect pinched cheeks pink with shimmer. It goes on smooth and stays there.
