Smashbox Review

Hey guys, welcome back to my blog!

The long awaited reviews are finally starting to roll in! My last post (Sephora Haul) I told you guys that I will be giving you my honest and full review. You guys seem to like that idea so without further ado, let’s get on to the review.

Lets start of with the primer, I’ve heard a lot of great reviews about this primer and I didn’t really think of it much until I bought it. This is the type of product where the phrase “Little goes a long way” is appropriate for it. The product is in this off-white color, but once applied on skin it is transparent.

The cap is matte while the rest of the bottle has that glossy effect, very simple packaging which I think is great for traveling.

Next up is this compact powder. I have very oily skin and to add in liquid foundation, it’s going to be a mess. So my mother suggested on using compact powders and they still have amazing coverage. Quick warning, don’t put too much because your face will look very powdery and not that pleasant.

The whole palette or box is matte, and as you can see in the last picture, they give you a sponge which works great. You just need to push the mirror back a bit more and the powder will pop open and the sponge is there.

This concealer really does it’s job. I use the huge triangle method, which really helps cover up my dark under eye circle and the redness on my cheeks. The applicator is pretty good, and all you have to do to get the product out is to twist the bottom. I also use this on my forehead, and my upper lip.

The packaging is pretty simple, the information you need is in the front and the color is matte black.

This lid primer is just like any other, there’s nothing that special about it. My eyelids don’t show the veins so I’m not sure if this will help to cover it but I’m pretty sure it will because it is super tinted and concealing. Lid primers are important because not only will the eye shadows help to last longer but also it will help show the pigmentation of the color much stronger..? You know what I mean.

The applicator is like your ordinary lip gloss or liquid lipstick, the cap is matte black and the rest of the tube has a slight glossy feeling towards it.

I still have not tried out this product, but I did do a swatch by myself, I was just checking out the colors and these are super pigmented. They’re blushes by the way. I would probably use the second one as a blush and the third one as a highlighter because I feel like the first one is super pink, and it does not suit my skin.

The packaging is very simple, the palette look is very simple and the color is matte black.

I tried this at Sephora and it worked great. This is a color correcting stick in the shade green, and according to Smashbox this is great for redness and as I have mentioned before, I got some redness on my cheeks that I would love to conceal.

The packaging has a glossy feel to it, even the cap. It is a jumbo stick and I’m pretty sure it’s the stick your sharpen because I couldn’t see anything that could be twisted or whatever to get the product out.

I have been wanting Smashbox’s liquid lipsticks ever since Youtubers got a package that was filled with it. I recently noticed that brown/orange mixed colors suit me the best so I was looking for those shades and I found those two pretty shades.

The first one is called Driver’s Seat, and it’s more on the pinky side, but still has that orangey brown feel to it. The second one is called Out Loud, I personally like Driver’s Seat better but this shade is more one the orange side.

The applicator threw me off a bit, there is a whole in the middle of it and I’m so confused as to why there is a whole. (Tell me in the comments if you know why!) What I really liked about the applicator was the pointy side at the top. It really helped with lining the lips, because I couldn’t seem to find a liner that fit with those liquid lipstick.

The packaging is super simple and cute, and it’s amazing for traveling because it’s not that big and chunky.

Sorry for the horrible, and dull backgrounds but I’m currently at hotels because I’m traveling. I’m in Orlando right now, which is basically my second home.

Thank you for reading, hope you enjoyed. All the love.

  1. Tati on YouTube mentioned that she liked the applicator of the Smashbox Liquid Lipstick, because of the hole in the middle. She said that the product gets in the hole and you don’t need to put the applicator back into the tube as often because there is more product on the applicator. Idk if that makes any sense. This was a really lovely post x

  2. I can always depend on Smashbox for having awesome products! I only noticed recently that I always gravitate towards their stuff. And I loooove their sticks (contour and color correcting!!!) – I recently purchased the orange color correcting stick and absolutely loved it for my undereye circles! Great post 🙂
