Smashbox is one of my favorite makeup brands, they make the most beautiful and pigmented makeup. I’ve been testing all of these products and finally have an opinion on them. Smashbox is in the high end category, so their products are a bit pricey – but you get something for your money, I promise. Spoiler: I have yet to be disappointed.
All of the products are from www.smashbox.dk, definitely make sure to check it out (or .com if you’re not from Denmark), they have so many amazing products.
Let’s start with the palette. This is genius, you get 3 brow products, contour/bronzer and highlight products, and a lot of eyeshadows. So convenient.This is the perfect every day palette. I was afraid that the face products would be too dark for my skin tone, but they matched perfectly. Do NOT judge it when you look at it. Do not take this for granted. It may look like it’s not something you really need in your life, but once you swatch everything … WOW. I liked it, but after that I fell in love. The shades are absolutely perfect, smooth and insanely pigmented. Now there is some fall out because of how pigmented they are, but it doesn’t really bother me. Just tap the excess off and you’ll be good to go.
I know Smashbox had a palette where the shadows weren’t on point and not that pigmented, but that’s not the case with this one.
You can also use the brow & face products as eyeshadow!
I also really liked the brush that comes with it. Normally I always throw them out, but this is a keeper.
To the left, you have 3 brow products and then you have the bronzer, contour, under eye setting powder and highlight. The highlighter is a hidden gem, it’s beyond amazing! I had my ABH kit ready to mix, because normally these types of highlighters sucks, but I didn’t even have to use it. It’s so good!
Here’s the shadows. The perfect colors for me. They may look a bit boring, but trust me: once you swatch them or put them on your lid, they are pure perfection and you will die. And A+ for the transition shade.

I also got theFusion Soft Lights in the color Baked Starblush. I always wanted to try this, so I was excited to test it out. It’s a disc of five baked, glimmering shades to bring a soft veil of shimmer to the complexion. You can use it as highlighter, blush and even eyeshadow. I like to swirl them all together and put it on my cheeks. Super pretty!

Now for the lip products! Let’s start with the lip liners. These are the Smashbox Always Sharp Lip Liners. The light pink color is called “Frenchie” and the nude is called “Nude Fair”. Both super beautiful colors, right up my alley! They go on smooth and creamy and they last all day. Buy them here:
I got the cream lipstick in “Pretty Social”. These vitamin-fortified cream colors do not settle unevenly on the lips or dry out. Their moisturizing, satin-smooth formula softens and protects lips with shea butter and vitamins C and E. LOVE! I really love the formula, it looks beautiful on the lips and goes on really smooth.

EXCUSE THE CAT HAIR. With two cats they’re everywhere. (cat ladies, you feel me?)
Here I’m wearing the lipliner “Frenchie” and the lipstick “Pretty Social”
The last one is the Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer. It’s been talked about a lot and people wondered if it actually works. It’s a gel that transforms any cream lipstick and creates a velvety-matte finish. I tried it on the cream lipstick I talked about before and yes it does work. This is perfect for makeup artists and even regular makeup lovers at home. It quickly became a trend to have matte lipsticks, now everything is matte. So if you have a favorite cream lipstick that you wish was matte – this is the perfect tool.
