Smashbox Brand Review -

Some of you guys might know that I was kindly given some bits from Smashbox to try and review for you all.
I decided that I would turn this into a brand review after falling in love with the brand and a lot of their products.

Smashbox was launched in 1996 by the LA brothers Dean and Davis Factor who are the grandsons of the makeup legend Max.
This makeup brand is made for you to look your best under those bright studio lights when you're on shoot.

One of the first things they made was the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer. It gives you a perfect canvas for applying foundation with its silky texture.
It also contains vitamins A and E, grape seed extract and green tea!
Worn under foundation or alone it is their best selling primer and really does reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores while it gives you that velvety finish.
Yeah its on the pricey side at £25 but I honestly believe it is worth every penny.

Next on the list is the Studio Skin hydrating foundation that claims to have 15 hour wear! This foundation is made to go along with the photo finish primer and will give you coverage that lasts even under studio lighting.
This stuff is amazing and I have successfully used up the whole thing. It's not often that I try a foundation that I don't just enjoy using but also finishing the whole thing! 
Once again it is on the more pricy side at £28 but I can promise you that you get what you pay for with this beauty!

Moving on I decided to pair these two products together because they just work so well hand in hand.
The two products are the Full Exposure Mascara and the Limitless Liquid Liner.
The mascara lengthens my eyelashes beautifully and when built up it gives you that little bit of volume too.
If you watch me videos on youtube and have been asking me what mascara I have been using well its this bad boy!
The eyeliner is by far the best I have come across in all my makeup years so far!
It has an easy felt tip pen applicator and gives you a full dark black line and this won't smudge at all until you take it all off at the end of the day.

The last thing is the 24 Hour photo finish shadow primer.
If you know me I tend to just stick to my eyeliner and red lips combo but because of this product I am slowly starting to extend my day to day makeup routine.
This basically does what it says on the tin. It helps my eyeshadow stick to my eyelids without creasing at all.
If you are someone who enjoys to experiment with your eyeshadow then this is a need in your collection.

So whats my review on Smashbox...
Its fantastic and even though its pricey, it's so worth investing in and I will be buying more soon.
Out of everything I will 100% be buying the foundation, photo finish primer and the eyeliner again!
