Smashbox - The Studio Pop Collection
New from Smashbox for the holiday season, this collection 'Studio Pop' has some of the hottest shades making office to evening make-up even easier to achieve.
This Studio Pop for Eyes - which I was sent earlier in the week - has four really creamy and surprisingly blendable eye liners. I have found that pencils are often too hard to work with and drag the skin, but these are righer and have a softer feel so are much easier to work with.
The shades in the box come in Graphite, Bronze, Antique Gold and Imperial and will go with all eye-colours and there is a small Full Exposure Mascara which has olive oil in it to keep your lashes silky and soft.
If you've not come across Smashbox as a brand before it has been inspired by makeup artists, photographers and models working at Smashbox Studios in Los Angeles. The idea is that the colours are perfect from behind a camera - but this doesn't make them unwearable (honest). The story behind Smashbox Studios is interesting in itself. Two brothers, Dean and Davis Factor (great-grandsons of Max Factor) created Smashbox Studios in 1990 where many a starlet came in for fashion and beauty photoshoots. They were often asked for make-up that really worked in front of a camera and there the brand was born!
The Studio Pop for Eyes set from Smashbox is RRP £21 and is perfect as a stocking filler or for yourself. I will have at least one pencil to hand at all times now.
