Southampton Smashbox Event | #smashboxmeetup
On Thursday, I stopped by the Smashbox counter at Boots outside West Quay in Southampton. The lovely ladies Jo & Katie talked us through all the gorgeous new goodies from contour sticks to lippies!
As there were only six of us, it was great to get a more one-on-one chat starting with a lesson on contouring! I have to admit, I've never been good at doing the full contor, brozing, blush and highlighting before. I mean, I obviously know what they all are but when it comes to my face shape and applying on myself, I normally wing it! We learnt where to apply and the best use of the products. Jo showed us how easy contouring can be with these new sticks, the product glides on the skin and is super easy to blend. They're £35 for all three, including a shapener. They looked and sounded amazing! I also noticed how she applied underneath make up, and Alice's skin looked so natural and glowing!
Alongside the contor sticks we also talked about the new Primer Water which I LOVE and have already reviewed here (Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water). It's an amazing product for priming and setting make up. There's also a few new lipsticks, the colour Mulberry being my favourite. If that's not enough, we also got to try the new Photo Angle Pure Pigment Gel Liners which are super pretty too. Jo applied the purple one on Sarah and it looked gorgeous with her glitter gold shadow, I wish I got a close up now!
I'm so impressed with how many new products Smashbox are releasing and can't wait to try the few I got in my goody bag too! Thanks again for having us Smashbox, see you next time!
