There are so many brushes out there, so many sponges, so many ideas of how to apply makeup out there, smashbox and the makeup drop has made it so easy.Hi guys, so I used to dislike Smashbox a lot after we had a thriving relationship – well it’s been repaired and since them launching within Canada they started a Canadian PR team so I’m more then aware some of my product talk will not be new items but, well, it’s kind of new to me. Also the brand who created the viral silicone makeup sponge, The MakeupDrop™, reached out to me and challenged me to use the new Hybrid Blender and nothing else for two weeks. I took that challenge.
So first off I am going to talk about The MakeupDrop™ because it really is a massive game changer for makeup application, a lot of people who have tried the Silicone Blender loved it but still felt it needed a final touch to help melt and blend into the skin a little bit better and the brand listened and created the Hybrid Blender with a flat silicone drop for you to add foundation on and pat onto the skin then there is a latex-free blending sponge connected like a BeautyBlender but truthfully better, flip it over and blend out anything – it’s beyond perfect for concealer, applying the concealer to the tip of the silicone pad tap and dabbing it where it’s needed then, boom, flip it and lightly melt it into the skin.
➡️ Truthfully I never really got into the BeautyBlender hype, but this sponge actually leaves your skin so flawless and for only $20.00US it’s an amazing steal, I love the silicone drop because it doesn’t waste product at all, you use less, and less of your expensive products, I know that BeautyBlender drinks up the product as much as it drinks up the water – I do own a lot of BeautyBlender but 99% of them are still boxed or just laying around from that giant egg I got when BeautyBlender came out with Bounce foundation. I’ve always been a brush type of dude, and that’s why when I saw the semi-new Smashbox brushes I was so incredibly surprised and taken back at the level of actual craftsmanship and artistry to come out with a brush collection that you would really only need within your kit or for your home makeup application.
One brush that is an absolute must have is their multitasking detailing brush which is amazing for so, so many things especially covering imperfections, dark spots, and all of the face issues we might come across, because if you use a regular concealer brush you are then blending out so much concealer but this brush picks up the absolute perfect amount and is so unique ➡️ The angled powder brush is an absolute must, the design of this brush is something that any and I mean any makeup wearer wants and thinks about but after that thought it just poof is gone until the next time – no-guesswork grips show where to hold for sheer to full coverage on some of the complexion brushes which is absouloutly so smart of Smashbox to do, it’s also slanted so you can pack powder where you need to and there do a little zip across the face to actually look, airbrushed.
SIDE NOTE ➡️ High-tech synthetic fibers (you would swear that they were real hair, seeing is believing) for durability and control and it’s Smashbox so its all cruelty-free.
The blending shadow brush is the perfect brush for the classic smoky eye, at the barrel it’s so slim and rounded perfectly and puffs up into the perfect amount of hairs and density for blending, even smoking out the bottom lash line. This dome-shaped brush applies sheer shadow layers that can be built up so easily, diffuses any shadow especially deep shades and creates seamless shade transitions for a soft eye look. You can also use the brush to blend out overly applied eyeshadow. Every brush has high-tech synthetic fibers retain shape and bounce back after washing.
Right now Smashbox is offering almost their full brush line in a brush vault with a tub holder which is such an amazing offer, you get 15 brushes.
