For the most part, I always get a little excited when I come across a good makeup post on Instagram. It’s usually just a quick little wiggle dance. Or a, “Oop, I’m gonna need that!” But when I saw that Taraji P. Henson was collaborating with MAC to release her own limited edition collection was hollering at my screen. “YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS! MAC come through!” Yeah, it was intense.
There are a lot of brands out there that don’t always get the love and recognition they deserve and Smashbox is certainly one of them. After discovering the magic of Smashbox recently, I decided to start paying a little more attention to the brand and trying out more products. If their blush and eyeshadow is good stuff then there has to be other hidden gems too, right? Right! Smashbox is actually a solid brand all around in terms of both color and complexion. But what Smashbox really excels in is complexion. For years, Smashbox has received the most love for their extensive collection of primer for all skin types and concerns. However, Smashbox isn’t all primer. They’ve got some other great complexion goodies too!
