May/09/2017

I finally got my hands on the Ablaze palette here in the UK (I bought the last one the store had). As soon as I heard about this palette being released in America I wanted it because I had been hunting for a good palette with warm terracotta shades in it, and Smashbox is one of my favourite brands. This palette did not disappoint me. Firstly, I have to say the packaging feels a little flimsy for …Read more

Lipstick - Smashbox - Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick (All Colors)

I got this liquid lipstick in Chill Zone (purple-toned grey) after seeing it on instagram. While the colour might not be for everyone (I think it's a great, daring colour), the formula is great. It is not totally opaque on first glide, as it were, but it builds easily and dries down to a perfect matte. It boasts eight hour wear, which is achievable in theory, but like any liquid lipstick it …Read more

This was given to me by mum after she tried it once and realised liquid eyeliner wasn't for her, because she only normally uses pencils. As it happened, this was my first proper liquid eyeliner as well, having only tried felt tip eyeliners and pencils before. I would've never picked this up myself, but I'm glad my mum did.

Application is easy, and if you shake it, you …

First of all, I'd like to say I love nearly everything about this foundation. It's not heavy or thick, and for everyday wear, it's perfect. It evens out my complexion and isn't matte or dewy, it's just a natural finish. The scent is an added bonus, too. It's also really great to mix with other foundations when you want slightly more coverage.

My only …

Eye Shadow - Smashbox - Full Exposure Palette

Sep/05/2016

This was my first proper eye shadow palette, and I've loved it since its first use. The palette itself contains cool and warm matte and shimmer shades, and comes with a Smashbox eyeshadow brush and a good-sized mirror. It also comes with a guide on how to do your eye makeup depending on your eye shape, which as a beginner at the time, I felt was very useful. My palette came with a mini Full …Read more

This is the only drugstore concealer in Fair (1) I have found that is actually pale enough and cool enough for my skintone. Others that I've tried are too yellow, orange, or dark. I find that it's easy to apply with either fingers, brushes or a sponge, but I get the best finish on top of foundation with a sponge.

That being said, it's quite a thick formula, and covers …
