Makeup Product Review: Smashbox Camera Ready Full Coverage Concealer


Time for a review on some new makeup products that I recently tried out. I have heard lots of great things about Smashbox Cosmetics but never actually tried any of their products. Recently I decided to see what all the excitement was about and try some of their products for myself. I have a few products to talk about so I will be doing a 3-4 part series review. When I get to the last review I will post a very exciting giveaway of some of their products for my subscribers. So check back to see that! Now for the products:



CAMERA READY FULL COVERAGE CONCEALER:

The shade of the conceaeler below is my color- 1-Fair Porcelain.

A good Concealer is a very important makeup product for any women. Wether or not you have dark circles, blemishes, age spots or sun spots you may just want to brighten up the under eye area and look more awake.

What is this concealer formulated to do? Smashbox says:
Dark circles and blotchy skin are now a thing of the past with this vitamin-infused, portable fix-it stick. With this full coverage concealer, you'll be camera ready in no time! It works to make you look your best and more awake so you'll be prepared for any situation or photo opportunity that pops up. The innovative formula contains a soft focus powder to help minimize imperfections and keep your skin looking younger. Provides natural yet buildable coverage on any area of the face. Dark circles and blotchy spots are a thing of the past

There are many concealers on the market right now. So what makes this one stand out?

What I like about this concealer:

1) It's lightweight and small so it's easy to carry around for on the go application and to travel with.

2) It's in stick form and twists up like a lipstick does, so it can be swiped on for easy, quick application.

3) it has a really nice texture- it's not too thick to be cakey and dry but creamy enough that it blends nicely and doesn't settle into lines. The product also lasts longer then other concealers and doesn't slide off easily.

4) It brightens the under eye area to make tired eyes look more awake. I noticed this quality with the very first application. It's a little like a higlighter and concealer in one which is very useful.







How to apply it: I like to apply it straight from the stick and then blend it out with my fingers which works best for this texture since the fingers warm up the product a little. A brush can be used as well. Place it under eyes or on any other blemishes on face. Also a tip: since this product has a formula  which contains a soft focus powder, no powder is actually needed to set it. If you do set it with a powder it may cake and dry out your face.
WHERE TO FIND IT: Smashbox.com, Sephora, Sephora inside JCPenny, Ulta, Nordstrom, Beauty.com, and select Macy’s

    be able to fix this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share.

    With thanks!
