Smash box – A product review

Smash box is a make up brand that I have never used before so was excited to try out their products. I was sent the photo finish pore minimizing primer, be legendary long wear lip lacquer in fuchsia and in lilac and the always sharp lip liner in peony and shocking pink.

The first one I was eager to use was the primer. I loved how easy it was to apply, it blended in with my skin tone effortlessly and felt silky smooth. I have a few small pores on my nose and they instantly became less visable, with most of them seeming to diasapear. I applied my usual foundation over the top and was really pleased with the end result, the best bit was my foundation stayed on longer than it normally does. The next day I was feeling a bit braver so applied the primer without any foundation and actually felt like complexion was flawless and could get away with a more natural day time look.

The next items I wanted to try were the lip lacures, or lip glosses. The first thing I noticed about these was the great packaging. I love how they are black and clear with your favoured colour showing through. Both of these are gorgeous vibrant colours, my personal favourite is the Fushia. They made my lips feel luscious, fuller and soft and it stayed on for a few hours without drying up and needing to be re-applied, which I was very impressed with.


I don’t normally wear lip liners but thought I would give these ago. I love how they are twist cap, no more lids popping off in your make up bag and ruining your linear. Better still this twist cap feature also self sharpens so it is always ready to use. Although I am not experienced at using a lip linear I found these easy to apply, you only need to touch the tip gently on your lips and the colour is transferred. Since reviewing these I have had a lot of comments on how nice my lips looks and I am now a lip linear convert, thankyou smash box.
