Smashbox #FoundationFriday



Whilst at the Smashbox event for the Contour Palette I noticed a poster for Foundation Friday. I didn't know what it was but quickly learnt that Foundation Friday was where the first twenty people in store would get colour matched to the Studio Skin Foundation, receive a make over and get to walk away with a free full size foundation. I set my alarm for 6am the following morning to get up and out in time to grab my free Studio Skin and get to work for 9am. Dedication to foundation.



After a quick stop in Starbucks I began queuing with some other early birds and waited for Boots to open at 8am. I wish I'd brought back up with me as it got a bit pushy and even one woman ran to the stand with her two children. The girls that were behind me were really kind and pushed me through to the front so I could get matched and be on my way to work. 

I was matched to shade 1.1, the lightest shade. Pale girl problems. I have been using this everyday since and have well and truly fallen for it. It reminds me so much of MAC Studio Fix which is my all time favourite for fuller coverage. Couple of pumps of this used with my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush and I am left with a pretty flawless complexion that lasts for hours! Smashbox have definitely stolen my heart recently.

  1. I've just started investing in Smashbox following years of intrigue! I have a lipstick and I have just purchased one of their 'Try it Kits' with their BB cream, primer and powder and can't wait to start trialling it all. Thanks for the heads up about the foundation! x

  3. Ooh that woman must have been desperate for a free foundation! I quite like Smashbox, I've had a few bits from them now but I haven't tried the foundation yet.

  4. I love my Smashbox primer but I've never tried their foundation! I can't believe how rude some people can be over a free foundation!

  5. Not tried a Smashbox foundation before but what a great freebie! I'm surprised there weren't more people running to get to the counter - free full size samples do strange things to people! :) x
