Regular visitors have probably noticed that lately I have been writing a lot about Smashbox. That’s not because I get a big fat pay check from Smashbox for those articles (I wish) but just because my experiences with the brand are so good. I already knew Smashbox a little when I still lived in La Belgique, but it wasn’t until I moved to Switzerland that I really got to know the brand well. And we hit it off immediately! In a very short time I have become best buddies with many Smashbox products. Today I am introducing two of my newest friends to you: the Smashbox High Definition Concealer and the Smashbox High Definition Healthy Fix Foundation. Take a look. In HD today.
Smashbox High Definition Concealer
Opinions differ and everyone has their own technique, but I personally always apply my concealer before my foundation. That’s why I am starting this review with the Smashbox High Definition Concealer. High Definition is hot and HD make-up products have become more and more popular over the years. And it’s not difficult to see why. A flawless invisible finish, even when you’re right on top of it with you nose or camera? Yes please! The Smashbox High Definition Concealer is a liquid under eye concealer that hides under eye bags and dark circles. The concealer comes in five shades, and I have it in Medium. The formula is super light, blends incredibly well and applies like a dream. The texture really seems to become one with my skin. I swear you couldn’t spot the concealer on me even if you had a magnifier! Yet my eye contour looks awake and evened out. This truly faking at its best.
Smashbox High Definition Healthy Fix Foundation
Fresh eye contour? Check! So now it’s time for the rest. The Smashbox High Definition Healthy Fix Foundatrion is an oil-free liquid foundation with SPF 15 and vitamine C that protects the skin against external influences. The foundation comes in six shades and I have it in Light and Medium. With some brands I am still in the light category and with others I have to look at the medium shades, so that’s why I tried both Light and Medium. Medium turned out to be the best match for me. The perfect match even. It doesn’t often happen that I find a foundation that looks like it was made for me (only happened once, I think) but this Smashbox High Definition Healthy Fix Foundation in Medium is truly perfect for me. Yay! It’s a warm medium shade, the texture is pleasant, odorless and blends like a dream, and the finish is incredibly natural-looking. And yet the foundation provides enough coverage to hide my imperfection. Best buddies? Forget it, I am head over heels in love with this foundation. Come here, lover!
I am really in love with this Smashbox HD duo. Both the concealer and the foundation are a perfect color match for me, they’re both very easy to use and they have an amazing natural-looking finish. And even from up close they look perfectly natural. When I told my boyfriend that ‘’I really didn’t feel like putting on foundation that morning’’ he told me: ‘’You don’t need to anyway, your skin is looking perfect.’’ Hah, fooled him! Like I said, this is truly faking at its best, I love it!
P.S.: Sorry, Tom, that I lied to you. But it was in the name of beauty blogging :-)
The Smashbox High Definition Concealer and the Smashbox High Definition Healthy Fix Foundation are both available at Marionnaud and cost 30 and 47 CHF.
