YAY or NAY?
Smashbox Primer Water: I bought this Primer water at Sephora (was in my MINI SEPHORA HAUL VIDEO) it costs $32 (OMG take a deep breath lol) It basically a setting/ prepping spray in a way. You can spray your face with this before your foundation because it has their "photo primer build into this formula" to help even out your foundation application. It smells so nice, it has a citrus smell and it's very relaxing in a way. It hydrates the skin while prepping it for makeup. I have also been using it as a setting spray after my makeup is done. It just refreshes the face and doesn't make the makeup look to "overdone" leaves you looking flawless and feeling hydrated. I love it. The spray is so awesome, it is a nice mist, it doesn't leave spots of wetness on the face that requires longer drying time. The mist is very fine and dries super fast. Over all I love this Primer water. I will even use it through out the day if I feel like my face is looking dull or cakey. It just really wakes everything up. Great product. YAY from me!
Smashbox Contour Stick Trio: As we know contouring is like the thing of this decade. Everyone wants those chiseled out cheek bones and to look glamorous. I have been into contouring since early 2014 when it was really starting to come out. I was just using powders to define my cheeks, and then I would use it to define my jaw bone a little and then even make my forehead look smaller. I have been using powder for a while for contouring. ( I love the Anastasia FAWN color and the Benefit HOOLA bronzer) But I was interested in trying out a creme contour for something different. I had heard these Stick Trios were very easy to use for beginners and blend out easily. So I thought I'd give it a shot. I bought them at Sephora $45 (omg what is up with makeup prices!) I did have a 10% off coupon luckily for making Sephora VIB status. So I tried these out and used the contour stick for my cheek bone, jaw line, sides of nose and on my forehead, and I blended all of that out, and WOW, I used my beauty blender and it did the best job ever. It was very creamy and easy to blend and looked like such a natural shadow on the face. I was in love! I then used the Highlight stick to highlight in between my brows, top of my nose, top of my cheeks and in between my cheek and jaw contour. That also blended out beautifully with my beauty blender. I was feeling like a model lol. I set the highlights with my BEN NYE banana powder and set the contour with a little of the Anastasia FAWN powder. GORGEOUS!
Using these Sticks was such a difference. I like a really ALMOST bold contour for certain looks and I know that I will be able to achieve it so much easier now using these sticks.
I didn't use the Bronzeing Stick because as of right now I am so pale and it would just look to warm on me. But come summer time I am going to be loving all 3 of these together. I am so happy with these products.!
Oh and the Trio also comes with a sharpener since these are thicker chubby pencils.
