Small Smashbox Haul


Happy Friday Everyone! I don't know about you but I am so glad that it is the weekend, I have been waiting for this day for well.. since the last weekend ended basically hahaha I joke I joke. As you know, I love a good haul and I have been doing too many of those recently (oops), but I think I can justify these purchases as essential products that I just need in my beauty life!

I love smashbox and shopping on their website is always a pleasure as they give you in depth description of what their products do. Not to mention the free sample with every order, plus the free delivery! It's just a whole load of free stuff really. So since we are getting all excited and talking about free stuff, I thought I'd point out that I did order my two products in separate orders because I am just that cheeky and cannot resist getting all the free stuff, and since it is free delivery, why not? Right? This time, they had an offer going that gives you 2 free samples with every order! That is pretty much double the amount of free stuff! The were 3 samples to choose from and I got the "Be Legendary Lip Gloss" in the colour 'Disco Rose', and the " Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Primer". I haven't had a chance to use the lipgloss but the colour looks great, and would fit perfectly in my handbag. I did try the primer, a little goes a long way with this product, this little sample gave me two generous uses and could have possibly squeeze out a third but I was too eager and used everything up as quickly as I could. The texture is slightly thicker than the original primer and comes with a skintone colour but applies clear to the skin. I think this is the perfect primer for those days when your skin is a bit more bumpier than usual. I would happily purchase this.

Photo Finish Foundation Primer £25.50 | Full Exposure Mascara £19.50
The two main products that I purchased will come as no surprise as I have been using them for a couple of years now. The primer is just the most amazing feathery texture, it smooths and leaves your skin with a matte base for your foundation.

I haven't purchased a full size mascara in a while because I have been given samples from companies and friends so I never really needed to buy one as I was always trying out a new one. I did try a couple from benefit which were great but I personally don't think that are great value for money. The smashbox one is slightly cheaper and it does what I want a mascara to do. It's lengthening, which is really important as I have the shortest lashes in the world. It hold a good natural looking curl, separates and adds volume to the lashes, but not too much volume that it starts to look clumpy.

Hope you found this post helpful. Until next time,
Grace

    1. I agree, and I also think that it prolongs the wear of my make up, which is always a positive :)
