Shaking up the local beauty scene yet again, beauty juggernaut Smashbox Cosmetics introduces
a fresh selection of head-turners to the Philippine market. Bringing no less than a curated
assemblage of pigment-packed beauty essentials, Smashbox fulfills the wishes of beauty junkies
and makeup hoarders by officially launching the Cover Shot Eye Palette, Spotlight Palette and
Always On Matte Liquid Lipsticks.
THE COVER SHOT EYE PALETTE
The eye palette has blow-your- mind eye shadows packed with powerful pigments and mesmerizing colors. Pigmentation is stellar as each swipe packs a punch of heavy-duty color. Each pocket-sized palette houses six high-pigment colors and two base shades that blend like a charm.
The palette a total of 4 colour variations and is sold at a retail price of P1,500.00. I got Ablaze, which is best described as fire in a palette. It contains incandescent reds and browns inspired by the sear and scorch of the desert.
The palette also comes in Golden Hour which promises a soft inner glow reminiscent of the sun’s rising and setting, with a moody purple shimmer as an unexpected palate cleanser. Aptly named, the Matte palette delivers ultra- pigmented creamy shades that go from neutral to dramatic. A stark opposite, the Metallic palette features golds, silvers and pearlescent colors, all topped off with a foil finish.
THE SPOTLIGHT PALETTE
Having the palette is like having your own lighting crew hiding in your bag This triple threat of a palette contains Blow a Fuse, Crank It Up and Turn It On––two shimmer finishes and one high shine shade to kick your glow up a notch. Available in Pearl, each highlight shade boasts of a glow-from- within effect that adds effortless dimension wherever applied. The Spotlight Palette, retailed at P1,800.00, was created in close collaboration with YouTube’s own highlighting guru, Casey Holmes.
Tip: Wear each shade alone or layer together to build your ultimate glow. It can also be applied over blush or non-tour for added dimension.
THE ALWAYS ON MATTE LIQUID LIPSTICK
Smashbox’s liquid lipstick is a lip-smoothing, 8-hour power pout that just won’t budge.
I’ve been hearing such great things about Smashbox’s liqud lipsticks as they have perfected the ultimate smudge, budge and kiss-proof lipstick to take our pouts from morning to night. The precise tip makes it a fool-proof product for stress-free application. It’s offered in 11 neutral, pink and red shades at P1250 each. Subdued rose shade Babe Alert, neutral pink In Demand and deep nude Stepping Out make for a perfect go-to for errands in the day or a hectic workday. The pinkshades are just as promising: mauve pink Dream Huge and rose-toned Big Spender are soft while pink coral shades Baja Bound and Blast Off provide a punchy kick of color. Smashbox also keeps a variety of reds is also within reach, from the yellow red Bang Bang and deep red Bawse, to dramatic deep brick shade Disorderly and warm red-meets- plum Miss Conduct.
WHY IT’S UNIQUE: The unique liquid matte formula is infused with a propriety Primer Oil Complex, rich in moisturizing jojoba, apricot, and sunflower oils. Always smooth and never drying, the new Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick keeps lips soft-as- suede, supple and comfortable. The precision tip can be used to expertly line lips and simply fill them in.
