Smashbox Southampton Event



Last Thursday I was invited to the Smashbox Southampton event with six of my favourite blogging girls to be shown quite a few of their new releases including the hotly anticipated Contour Sticks. Jo and Katie ran the event, laying on yummy cakes and drinks while we sat and learnt all things contour.






We started with the contour sticks and Jo re-did my make up for me using the sticks, Liquid Halo foundation and the new Photo Filter powder foundation. I've said so many times before that I love a full coverage but the dewy glow of Liquid Halo may of converted me. The Contour Sticks are a must add to the collection, they glided on the skin, no tugging and blended effortlessly in to the skin. I was so happy with the results that I'm going to have to buy all three products! 

Next we were shown the Double Exposure palette which I've previously said I haven't been getting on very well with but after seeing the beautiful eye make up Jo created on Ami, I'm going to have some patience and give it another go. Smashbox have teamed up with Donald Robertson on two products, liner and lipstick, my two favourite things. 

The new Photo Angle Pure Pigment Gel Liner comes in five beautiful shades, Black, Brown, Grey, Purple and Lilac. They're much like Benefit's They're Real liner but apply so much easier and the shade pay off is incredible. The Lilac is my favourite, not that I could pull it off. 

The new Be Legendary lipstick collection has six new matte shades, ranging from a fiery orange to the softest of pinks. Jo applied one of the lipsticks on me in what I think was Mauve Pink and I've fallen hard for the shade and will be buying it as soon as. I don't think I've ever had so many compliments on one lipstick shade before. After having a good play around with all the products, chatting with Jo & Katie about even more new releases, we were handed incredible goody bags. Smashbox events are some of my favourites to go to as we always have fun and I cannot wait for even more new product releases!

  2. I have yet to get on the Contour Stick bandwagon. I think it's because I rarely reach for any time of cream product other than concealer. The Be Legendary lipsticks are a great formula! Looks like it was a lovely event. :-)
