This week I had the pleasure of attending my first ever blogger event with Smashbox and boots. Having never been to an event I didn’t quite know what to expect, but I learnt a lot and really enjoyed myself.
For all you newbies out there, you might be wondering what is Smashbox? Well Smashbox is a cosmetics brand which was founded in 1990, born from a real photo studio, Smashbox studios LA.
I’d heard the name before the event, but I’d never really had the opportunity to try out any of their products and I didn’t realise just what a cult brand they were.
In 2000 the brand released their signature foundation primer, which is now known as one of their most legendary products. At the event I learnt all about how far the primer has now come, and got to see their revolutionary primers that have all the benefits of the original primer, mixed with fabulous skincare benefits. My personal favourite was the Photo Finishing Hydrating Primer. As a girl with dry skin, ive been using my tester pot for a few days now and I think I have fallen in love.
Another primer that caught my eye was their Photo Finish Primer Water, free from silicone, alcohol and oil, this little spritzing genius can be used to hold and refresh your makeup all in one pump.
If primers aren’t your thing, then Smashbox still has plenty to offer in the way of their foundations, contouring kits, lip liners, eyeliners and lipsticks. Here’s a few of my favourites from the event:
I treated myself to the Studio Skin 15 hour wear foundation in shade 1.2 and an Always Sharp lip liner in Fuschia, which may just be the prettiest colour for spring/summer I have ever seen. I’m planning a post on these next week, so keep your eyes peeled.
Thanks to Charlotte and Kate who hosted a fabulous event and helped us out with their amazing makeup knowledge and experience. I can’t wait to get my hands on some more Smashbox products.
Until Next Time
