What’s up guys!
Contouring, strobing... these words seem to be taking over the world. Each girl has to find her ideal highlighter and contouring products. There are thousands of highlighters in the market: powders, creamy, liquid, watery etc. And the hero of my review today falls into the category of creamy highlighters.
It’s a stick product with a super soft sponge at one end for proper blending and on the other end there’s the highlighter itself.
Made in the USA
What’s notable about the Smashbox:
- it’s a professional makeup brand;
- they don’t test on animals
What sets Smashbox apart from other cosmetic brands is that the products come straight from the Smashbox Studios. Products are tested in a studio to not only see how they hold up in bright and hot conditions, but to allow the creators to explore and develop problem-solving solutions. Smashbox's focus on creating studio-ready cosmetics, enabled the brand to be the first cosmetics company to produce HD makeup.
About the sponge: it’s very soft and yet firm. This very sponge will help you blend the product out if you want to get the most natural glow. If you apply the highlighter with your fingers, then you’ll get the dewy and more obvious finish.
And now the most important!
The highlighter itself. It’s creamy with a very soft yet thick texture. Blending it out with fingertips might be a tricky task. But the sponge will do the job better. Although I have to admit that it absorbs a lot of the product. But it doesn’t matter all in all.
Straight after the application I can feel the highlighter present on my skin for some time. But within 10 minutes that feeling disappears.
The product doesn’t clog or accentuate pores.
It’s very long wearing: once I wore it for 10 hours an it looked well and almost as though just applied.
No glitter or shimmer particles.
Blended out with a sponge:
On my face. How do I apply the product?
And now blend it out and here’s the result:
I give it 5 stars and highly recommend this product!
