The Nudes You Need To Try: Always On Matte Smashbox Liquid Lipsticks

Who loves a good nude lipstick? Who loves a fabulous liquid lipstick? If you responded me to both of these, the Smashbox Liquid Lipsticks need to be on your list to try! The non drying formula is perfect for liquid lipstick beginners to those who are obsessed with all liquid lipstick formulas. Comfortable on the lips yet long lasting with 7 different nudes to choose from.

Here are the details from ULTA BEAUTY:

Smashbox Liquid Lipstick is an 8-hour, liquid matte lipstick that’s specifically formulated to be comfortable and not dry out your lips.

  • Delivers bold, lightweight color with a liquid matte finish
  • Advanced Polymer Technology makes lip color last up to 8 hours
  • Won’t smudge, budge or feather
  • Infused with Primer Oil complex to condition lips
  • Precision tip applicator lines the lips and fills

I will say I agree with every benefit except the only thing I have to add is regarding they will not smudge, budge or feather. After having mine on for a little over an hour I kissed the back of my hand and some product came off. However this is NOT a deal breaker for me. These lippies will last for sure but I do not want to say they are 100% smudge proof.  I absolutely love the applicator. It makes it so much easier to apply with the tip and shape!  Liquid Lipstick Smashbox Liquid Lipsticks

Smashbox Cosmetics X Casey Holmes Spotlight Palette: Swatches & Product Info

You all know I love a good highlighter so when Smashbox Cosmetics and Casey Holmes announced their collaboration on the Spotlight Palette I was beyond excited. In case you are not familiar with Casey Holmes, she is a beauty guru with 1.5 Million Subscribers on YouTube and  almost 1 Million followers on Instagram who teamed up with Smashbox to create 2 gorgeous highlighter palettes.

Product Details:

Two Shades Available:

Gold & PearlBoth Palettes include three tonal finishes, two shimmery shades (Turn It On and Crank It Up) plus one super sparkly shade  (Blow a Fuse). Casey provides pamphlets in each palette of how to tutorials which I thought was a very nice added personal touch.  I do have to say I did not find any of the shades to be too glittery but I can understand how you can layer for maximum glow and who does not want that? Right?!!?  The Blow a Fuse shades in each palette are more like a topper shade.  Each shade is super soft and provide a nice shimmery glow that can be worn as a subtle day time look or can be layered for a night out.

Do you prefer to have a highlighter palette or a single highlighter? I typically do not prefer palettes only because it seems there will be colors I will not use however this collaboration was executed so nicely for different skin tones and for multi purpose use.  All shades can be used as highlighters, eye shadows and brow bone highlighters as well. With each palette containing three shades in one shade range family makes it worth the money because no shade will get left untouched I promise!
