[Costco] Smashbox Product Review & Mugshot!

This is a "Mugshot" I have been meaning to post. I did this look using the Smashbox products I purchased from Costco a way while back. The palette Smashbox put together is a very neutral fool proof color scheme and would look beguiling on any skin tone. The shadows are as soft as cashmere and applied very easily. The glosses also applied very easily and with the added conditioners, they felt more like a tinted lip balm. My lips weren't sticky at all. The Layer Lash Primer is not like most lash primers that dry brittle. It felt more like a conditioner or gel for my lashes. The formula didn't interfere with the chemistry of the mascara either. It may be my imagination but I think it also helped my lashes achieve a natural lift and curl. I didn't use the Skin Tint - Radiance in this look, but I have used it and the results were very similar to Belightful. It gave me more of a natural sheen, rather than cheeks resembling Christmas ornaments! With the twist up packaging, application was a cinch! I haven't opened the mascara yet, but I will be sure to try it out as soon as I need a new mascara and I reviewed the Photofinish here. If you have any questions related to the item(s) in this post or would like more photos or a more detailed review, my email is linked on my profile...feel free!
