  • Smashbox Fusion Soft Lights

    The variety of softlights pallets allows everyone to find the right color for their skin. I'm quite pale, and often use these as eyeshadow or very lightly as a highlighter/blush. With the striped ones, you can use each color individually as a complementary eyeshadow and get even more out of the pallet. Though this may initially seem expensive, it is a large container that will last for ages. And, you essentially get 5 or more colors for the striped ones, allowing it to be double-duty as many eyeshadows and as a bronzer/blush/highlighter.

  • Smashbox After-Party Beauty Kit

    the colors are even prettier than they look online. the blush has a gold shimmer. the bag is a bit darker, but has two side pockets and a zipped middle. the lipgloss is really pretty, and the mascara is wonderful. This was discontinued years ago, but Smashbox does put out new kits every season, and many kits for the winter holiday season.

  • Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer SPF 15 With Dermaxyl Complex

    This primer, one of many in the family of primers from Smashbox is amazing. It is slightly peachy in color, but is transparent on your face. It contains vitamins and other things that are good for your skin, in addition to sunscreen. This is (at the time) the only primer from Smashbox that contains sunscreen, which only makes it better, in my opinion. The primer feels a little bit thicker on your hand compared to the original primer, but once you swipe it on your face, it feels the same. Just one dab, or partial pump (if you have an older bottle) will do. The size of a pea is about right, but make sure not to use too much. Makeup applies smoother over this and seems to last longer. It is very creamy and basically disappears on the skin. I can't say if it does anything for wrinkles, but I have noticed that after using it consistently for a week or two, my skin looked better. I have a small tube that I carry around primarily for sunscreen purposes since it does not have that sunscreen smell or feel.

    The Body Shop For Men Shave Cream

    bought for dad, use myself instead

    I have been on a quest to have my dad use better products (and to understand why I like things from TBS so much) and bought him this. When the formula changed (mostly just the smell) I bought 5 of these for him. I tried it on my legs (I have sensitive skin, and usually do horrible damage to my legs when shaving) and it worked wonderfully. One tub lasted me almost a year. This is a "for men" product that you will gladly use in the shower.

  • Smashbox Artificial Light Luminizing Lotion

    I don't know why they call this a lotion. It is very liquid-like. However, mix a drop or two into foundation and you will have a refreshing glow to your skin. To use as a highlighter, dab a tiny bit on the back of your hand and use a fingertip to tap a little onto your cheekbones and under your eyebrows and inner corners of your eyes. This lasts forever, and can be used many different ways. The current packaging is different from the picture, but the formula is still wonderful.

  • Smashbox High Definition Healthy FX Foundation SPF 15

    most liquid foundations feel sticky, especially in the florida humidity. this one doesnt. for that, and because it is so blendable, soft, and good for your skin, its a wonderful product.

  • Smashbox Beauty Fact or Fiction Set

    you can use the highlighter as eyeshadow, blush, or just as a light dusting over your face. its very subtle. with the gel eyeliner, ive found that after you get through the top layer, it is much softer and easier to apply. try a different brush...just to get the top off. 8 instead of 10 because i bought mine when it was a trial size photofinish, and because i have no use for the lip pencil...

  • Smashbox Gels

    the gloss is great, however, i cannot seem to get it out of the brush-like top. the rating is low because i cannot get the product out of the tube correctly, i have to unscrew the top and put the gloss on the brush.
