How does your face meet the perfecting needs of a photo shoot?

Smashbox Cosmetics.
The salon that I get my hair done at has carried this line for months.  In June I was perusing the display and was recommended these 6 products.  I am going to review 5 of them in this {rav} and later I will list 1 in a {fav} post.

Photo Finish Foundation Primer
Product description:Create a perfect canvas for foundation application with this silky, lightweight blend of vitamins A & E, grape seed extract and green tea. Worn alone or under foundation to increase its longevity, our best-selling primer helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores for flawless skin with a velvety-smooth finish. In a new square airless pump for freshness to the last drop.

Price $36.00

What does B* say? I like this product but don't use it daily.  If I am going to an event or have a special date with Mr. Ace I will put it on.  It definitely does what it says.  After application my skin is silky and I can see that my wrinkles and pores have diminished.

High Definition Liquid Concealer
Product description: Our revolutionary new weightless concealer instantly smoothes skin and makes dark circles and imperfections virtually disappear. The good-for-your-skin formula includes cell-energizing ribose, soy, angelica extract and caffeine to reduce redness, dark circles and under eye puffiness. Soft focus pearls reflect light to minimize the appearance of fine lines and blemishes. The soft touch precision applicator provides the smoothest application for the most delicate skin areas. Provides buildable coverage with a natural finish. 

Price: $18.00
What does B* say?  I have not found a concealer that I like as much as this one {yet}  The coverage is great without the "cake".  You know when you put on a concealer and it feel thick and paste like?  This does not!  It is light weight and silky.  I feel like it is the perfect combo of anti-shine and dew.  I highly recommend this product!

Photo OP or Under Eye Brightener
Product description:Photo shoots often start at the crack of dawn when even models and celebs don’t look their best and dark circles loom. That’s why we created this innovative under eye brightener that immediately wakens and brightens skin while adding moisture to prepare for concealer application. Contains lots of skin-boosting ingredients too, like vitamin E, red wine extract, peptides and marine collagen, to help disguise and repair fine lines and wrinkles. PHOTO OP can be used on any area of the face to highlight and add radiance. Winner of Self Magazine Healthy Beauty Award for Best Highlighter.

                                           Price: $18.00
What does B* say? This was the first time reading the products description.  I did not realize that you were suppose to apply this prior to a concealer.  Can't wait to try!  I usual apply directly below my eyebrow on the arc of the eyelid.  It highlights the the lid and give a fresh natural glow.  I also use this on my cheeks and achieve the same results.
O-Bronze Intuitive Cheek Bronzer
Product description: Get gorgeously glowing cheeks in your own perfect sunkissed bronze shade. This innovative creamy cheek bronzer instantly transforms from white to your own custom shade of bronze. O-Bronze is packed with our exclusive Goji-Berry C-Complex, ginkgo biloba, and pomegranate seed for antioxidant protection. Apply a small dab to cheeks with fingertips and blend, breaking beads to release your most natural bronze glow. 

Price: $26.00
What does B* say? Genius!  When I was standing at the Smashbox display I was a little skeptical of this one! I put a small dab on my finger and rubbed it gently into my hand.  It left a gorgeous bronze shade on my skin and it was a must have.  This product stands alone!  When I am not in the mood to apply foundation I will dab a small amount on my cheek and it gives off a radiant bronzed glow. 
O-Glow Intuitive Cheek Color 
Product description:Experience instant chemistry as your complexion is transformed from so-so to oh-so-glowing! The first intuitive blush, this clear gel reacts with your personal skin chemistry to turn cheeks the color you blush naturally, in just seconds! O-GLOW works on every skin tone, from the lightest to the darkest, to give everyone a customized flush of color. When applied, your skin's moisture activates the innovative formula, producing a rosy blush that lasts all day. The unique Goji Berry-C Complex™ creates a microcirculatory, skin-energizing effect, while antioxidants like vitamin C, pomegranate seed oil and marine botanicals provide additional healthy-skin benefits. O-GLOW’S revolutionary silicone-based clear gel is easy to blend, preservative and fragrance-free, and glides on smoothly for a healthy, glowing blush that's you, only prettier.
Price: $26.00
What does B* say? I had the same experience with O-Glow Cheek Color as I did with the O-Glow Cheek Bronzer.  I was skeptical at first and the a total must have.  And actually if I could only have one over the other this would be my choice.  I like the shade that is gives off on my skin tone.  It is the perfect summery pink.

  1. I want to know if you've got an undereye concealer that you love. I have the worst dark circles...I'm thinking this isn't a product you need but if anyone would know what's good it would be you!

  2. Wait, I just reread that and it says it IS for undereye...but you use it on your eyelids too?

  3. Okay, I'm going on a comment rampage here. I'm pathetic.

    BUT, I just bought the Under Eye Brightener...excited to see how it does!
