I’m not usually into Summer collections but this new one from Smashbox has caught my eye for a while ever since I saw it on other blogs. Incidentally, its now available at our local Smashbox counter so its a good time to tell you about it 🙂
Smashbox Naked Beauty is a small collection but I think its a very decent sort of collection and I do hope they make one of it permanent – I’ll tell you which below.
I showed you the Naked Beauty Lip Gloss collection last week. Its a boxed set of 8 mini lipglosses in sheer shades.
I only kept 2 – Pure (rose tint) and Nude (neutral nude) and the rest will be with my friends. The texture is a little thick but its non sticky and being mini, its easy to slip into your pocket or handbag. The only problem of course is that since its so mini, you are liable to lose it and I can just see that happening to me. Get it for yourself, or to share out with friends, or just break it up to add to gifts for friends.
The item I like most in this collection is the Photo Finish Lid Primer in Golden Nude.
It works well either worn on its own with liner and mascara or under powder shadows for greater intensity of colour and lasting power. I like it both ways and I do hope Smashbox makes this a permanent feature.
