To be completely honest, I had heard of Smashbox products but had never used them until I did a photo shoot at a local Ulta last September. Ever since that day, I've been a convert to Smashbox Primers. I'm a very happy user of their Photo Finish Foundation Primer not only because my pictures turned out amazing (I don't necessarily consider myself an overly photogenic person- just average) but how my skin felt while my makeup was on & how it felt once it came off. I have normal skin, sometimes typical T-Zone issues. I can tend towards sensitive skin depending on the season. I was bracing myself for major breakout issues after the photoshoot since I'm not usually one to wear a lot of makeup. My skin looked flawless (it wasn't!) from the primer, concealer & foundation. The primer felt a little thick during the application so I was concerned that my skin would revolt. My skin was soft & smooth and felt like it was in better condition after I had used the photo finish primer. The best part, not a single breakout, not a single issue with my skin once I had taken off my makeup. I've continued to use the primer since then & I love how it feels & looks on my skin. I spoke to 2 different Smashbox makeup artists since September & have asked them about the product line. One of the best tips they gave me was to not to be afraid to combine their primers in order to fit the needs of my skin. I cringed because of the price tag of the primers, however, the amount that I use is really not that much. The primer is not the cheapest out there, but it has been incredibly reliable on my skin. Even if I don't plan on wearing foundation on any given day, I would still put on their primer. My skin just looks better.

Wow, I'm loving this mascara. I received a small sample tube, but will buy the full tube when I run out. So what do I love about it? After two layers, it gives me long, pretty lashes that are well defined and not clumpy. The little combs on the brush makes it easy to apply evenly. It does provide me with a bit of volume, but not an excessive amount, so my lashes still look natural. I prefer that to having really thick lashes that look unnatural. In addition to that, it doesn't flake (just a tiny, tiny bit after a really long day, but that is easily removed) or smudge. I used it at the gym and no smudging! Finally, my under eye area is super sensitive and this mascara doesn't cause any irritation. I'm very happy about that. I highly recommend this lovely mascara!

Adds both volume and length as well as decent separation. I don't personally think I can put on more than 2 coats though without it getting clumpy. The mascara applicator is a HUGE (and I mean huge--like as big as my eye almost) natural bristle wand. It doesn't have a particularly interesting shape or anything. Not really suitable for the lower lash line due to size in my opinion. The product texture is just right for me. I prefer my mascara a little dry and it has that benefit. It doesn't hold my curl too well but it doesn't completely flatten my lashes. I have a little trouble getting it off but it is manageable. It isn't my favorite volumizing nor lengthening mascara but it does a pretty good jobs on both fronts which is commendable. I don't know that I would pay the high end price for it though. I got it as a sample size in a subscription box.

smashbox full exposure palette is AMAZING! the pigments are very compact but yet powdery. At the time you swash the pigment with your brush it picks up very easily and very strong. The color you see is the color you get. I purchased it as a combo with a mascara and a discount price, I own 2 of the palettes. The colors are very balanced, you get mattes and you get shinny , ready for ever look and the best part is that you get the brush at no additional price. The brush is perfect for the pigmentations because it pics up just the right amount. Smashbox is one of my favorite top name brands!HIghly recommend it!

This bb cream is one of the first that I ever tried and whenever I need a new one I tend to gravitate back to it. It blends in to the skin very easily even if you are in a hurry and just use your fingers to tap it in. I haven't ever gotten a breakout from it. It is a BB cream but it does cover imperfections pretty well. Building it up in trouble spots doesn't really work for me so I do have to go in with a concealer after blending this out. The staying power is very good. I've gotten 8 hours of continuous wear before it starts sliding off. I have really oily skin so I do set this with a bit of powder and I must blot several times throughout the day. The color range is good. I have been able to match my skin tone almost exactly. I will continue to purchase this as I run out for my light makeup days.

I was skeptical about this for a while, since it's an oil I thought it was be useless to "prime" the face. But after using it a few times I realized this actually works so wonderfully under my makeup. I have normal skin that runs dry in the winter and this hydrates, smooths, and adds a glow. The biggest thing I've noticed in using this product is how my makeup looks later in the day. Typically my skin doesn't get shiny throughout the day (unless it's a greasy foundation) and I usually start looking cakey, but when I use this to prime I notice my foundation will start to develop a natural and healthy glow! What's great is that this glow doesn't FEEL oily. If you touch your face oil doesn't come off on your fingers like you would expect when your skin gets greasy. This is a pretty amazing hybrid of skincare and makeup and it has so many uses - you can even mix it directly into your foundation. I have not noticed that any of my foundation formulas don't mesh well with this although I thought since it's an oil it may break down my makeup but it hasn't yet. A tiny sample of this product lasted me a long time so I feel like this is well worth the price of the full size.

I bought this liquid lipstick in the shade "Girl Gang" I bought just one so that I could test out the formula but I will definitely be purchasing more shades! First the packaging is so cute, it has the color of the lipstick on the actual box! Next the wand is amazing, it's different from your average doe foot wand. It is a little bit more pointy and this allows you to be more precise with application. The wand really makes the application a lot more easy and enjoyable. The formula is a little bit on the mouse-y side but it is smooth and doesn't dry too quickly which leaves space for corrections, it also smells like marshmallows! Once the lipstick is on and it dries you seriously cannot even feel it! It feels so smooth and comfortable that you forget you are wearing lipstick but the shade is very pigmented. It was not sticky or tacky or too drying which is awesome. The only downfall I would say is that I did notice some feathering & transfer after a few hours and eating. But you need to try this!
