As the years go by I finally realized that it is time to stop tanning! Anyone who knows me probably won't even believe that one. I was obsessed with being tan for as long as I can remember. I now try to maintain a healthy SELF TAN and stay out of the beds. For now at least! Its like a 12 step program for me. I really want to try and save the skin I have and not make it any worse! Um like the pac man shaped sun spot on my left cheek - um ya not so pretty!
So on to the topic at hand - Smashbox Cosmetics. I really never had the opportunity to see Smashbox products up close and personal since Utla rolled into town about a year ago. I always watched Holly on QVC doing her thing and was curious but never ended up purchasing. I found myself with a bunch of Ulta gift certificates in my paws after my birthday and wanted to try something new. I also wanted to be able to try the colors on to see if they were right for me, thanks Detective Lynn!
Here is what I ended up with - Smashbox Studio Skin Foundation, Photo Set Pressed Powder, Soft Lights Shimmer, Bronze Lights Suntan Matte, Camera Ready Concealer, and Double Take Lip Color in Gossamer. I realized that all of the other face products were way too dark for my newly lightened skin. I wanted something that made my skin look more soft focus and glowing and not so matte from all of the powder. I also wanted something that photographs well. Um because you never know where that paparazzi is hiding : P Here is a photo of the products I bought along with some free gifts when I ordered the lip liner stick on the website -
If you have any questions about any of the products, please comment below or email me. All in all I am so happy that I discovered Smashbox. Don't worry I am still completely in love with Chanel, just thought I would try something new. Oh and believe me those dark colors will come in handy in about 5 more months when the sun shines down on Upstate NY again!
In the case of turning 40 and trying to look fabulous - This case is SOLVED!
