In May, this little lot will sashay onto counter as Smashbox continues to both refresh and add to its core line. Psst: there is a limited edition - an OMG exciting summer collection in collaboration with a US music artist that you won't expect - which will land in June. More on that when the embargo ends at the end of the month, swear.
The most interesting thing really is there's a new suite of glosses, Be Legendary, to complement the brand's existing Be Legendary lipstick line. Here are four of 'em but there will be a whole suite right through from nudes to darks, cremes and shimmers and all are tacky enough to stay put for a while, with varying degrees of pigmentation.
See? We're starting to see more and more gloss launches this year - could this be the start of a whole new seachange in lips? In a way I hope not: gloss ain't my thing at all, at all.
Next of note is this telescoping synthetic brush which has three specific settings. The first packs the bristles tight so it's good for full-cover foundation. Number two does medium cover as the bristles are looser, and the third setting will deliver sheer cover or do body powder or makeup. Nice idea, and it comes with a cap as well.
Lastly for May, there's an update to the brand's Full Exposure formula to deliver a waterproof formula.
No prices as yet, so more on that when I have it, but anything calling to you now? Drop a comment and let me know.
