 My personal SMASHBOX review and opinion:

I'm testing this new SMASHBOX products since two days, and I'm absolute amazed, especially about the Be Legendary Lipstick in Petal Pink (I love pinky/rosy lip treats:-)) and also about the Photo Set Pressed Powder in Fairy (I've a really soft light skin tone - it fits perfectly:-)) and about the Metallic Cream Eye Liner Palette (you've soooo many colors to choose and it's perfect for traveling - one kit and a lot of creative ideas:-))

As I really like to test/make reviews of new brands and products, I was really happy to get these chance - to review some SMASHBOX make up products.

This brand isn't really new but it's also not really known here at the european market until now, so I've thought, to write some lines about this amazing colourful and nice packaged make up things:-)

The packaging is usually in a tube form or palettes and powders are in plastic/synthetic materials packed, which are the same like NARS has (I think so:-)) - really nice and worth to buy.

But I'll always mind, that if you are looking for some great foundation/powder/blush and would also like to test the SMASHBOX one, you should always visit one of their own stores or high end make up stores - where you can make the first test - to see whether your prefered colour really fits you.

I'm not really a fan from online - shopping, if I'm searching for some new face primers, foundations and make ups, which must really fit my face tone (because otherwise, it could really happen to get the wrong ones:-))

So you can look on their own website, to get more informations about the brand and the other make up  products, buy it online or as I would always do - visit one of their own stores/shops:-)

Where to buy: 
UK- Boots, Debenhams
IRE- Unicare Pharmacy
CZ - Palladium, Flora, Pankrac, Novy Smichov
AT - W. Rotenturmstr., W-Graben, G7-Wien, W-Millenium Tower, W-Lugner City
USA - Sephora, Nordstorm, Bloomingdale's,  Planet Beauty

I hope that you've liked my SMASHBOX post/review and hope to see you soon on my blog:-)

Bye,

NIKA
