Smashbox Beauty Breakthroughs
Smashbox is a cosmetic line that continues to innovate, collection after collection.
Their Master's Class Vol.6 Beauty Breakthroughs Collection is no exception.
Smashbox was generous enough to send me this kit at my request after I got an email from Sephora announcing it's release.
Retailing for just $59 exclusively at Sephora (http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P253312&categoryId=C10905), the kit is filled with six full size products valued at $175. That's a whole lotta loot for a great price!!
The kit includes:
1- Waterproof Eye Shadow Palette in gorgeous, shimmery neutrals
1 - Brow Wax Pencil - a pencil version of Brow Tech Wax (YAY)
1 - Lash Detailer Mascara - a tiny bent brush to get at the most stealth lashes
1- Poured Photo Op - a pot version of Photo Op Under Eye Brightener
1- Cheek Stain - a sheer berry tint in a unique roll up applicator
1 - O-Gloss Shimmer - a shimmering pink version of the intuitive lip gloss that adjusts to the perfect shade for your skin.
While everything included in this kit is a phenomenal product worthy of the Smashbox name, the standouts for me are the Poured Photo Op, The Waterproof Eye Shadow Palette and the Brow Wax Pencil.
As you know, this blog is for fitnessistas ... workout fiends who love glamour! Finding sweatproof cosmetics is big for this demographic! The three products mentioned above are superstars for gals who like to look damn good while they sweat.
The Poured Photo Op is a stunning, creamy shimmer that can be applied around the eyes and brow bone for instant glow. If this is all you slap on with your fingertips before heading out the door to the gym or your yoga class, you'll be sure to look rested and bright. Poured Photo Op can also be used under concealer or as an eye shadow primer.
Which brings us to the BRILLIANT Waterproof Eye Shadow Palette. Waterproof, powder shadow?? FINALLY!!! The shimmery shadows glide on, blend flawlessly and stay put through moisture laden activity! The smoky eye will now be making appearances on stair masters throughout the nation!
Finally, the Brow Wax Pencil is a more user friendly version of the hugely popular Brow Tech Wax. For those of us who fill in, or draw on our brows, a quick swipe of this pencil guarantees that color ain't goin' nowhere! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!
