Smashbox Cosmetics In Bloom Spring 2011 Collection & Review
“Say goodbye to bold cold-weather looks and usher in spring with the fresh, natural In Bloom makeup collection. The spring runways were rife with delicate girly looks, from radiant, lit-from-within skin to hazy, neutral eyes and glossy nude pouts. With light, luminous looks for eyes, cheeks, lips and skin, In Bloom is your ultimate spring beauty update. Think: light, romantic, beauty.”
IN BLOOM EYE SHADOW PALETTE AND BRUSH
This palette of 10 soft and shimmery shades of shadow gives you the opportunity to customize your look in a variety of ways. Try using the darker colors as eyeliner or using just one shade to give a soft spring look. Personalized color picks are not available for this product. The shades in this palette include Pink Lily, Lavender Grey, Golden Rose, Warm Taupe, Bone, Soft Orchid, Iris Blue, Shimmery Copper, Moss and Nude. $48
IN BLOOM CREAMY CHEEK DUO
The colors of this creamy duo is a lovely start to spring. Honestly, I never use creamy shades for the cheek but this, I’d definitely try. The colors can be used separately or customize your look by combining the shades. Another idea would be to dab a little on your lips for just a bit of color. I love products that can be used multiple ways. Be creative ladies! Personalized color picks are not available for this product. The shades in this duo are Blushing and Peony. $26
IN BLOOM SOFT FOCUS POWDER EYE LINER
I’ve never been a fan of powder eyeliner in the past because it tends to flake easily however I’ve heard great reviews on this Smashbox powder eye liner. I’d be willing to give it a try! An extra tip, try using this eye liner as a shadow! This product comes in Heather and Dark Brown. $22
IN BLOOM LIMITLESS LONG WEAR LIP GLOSS SPF 15
This long wearing lip gloss is available in two shades and appropriately named Endless Kiss and Timeless.
These shades of coral and soft pink stays in place up to six hours! Not only are you applying a long lasting lip wear but you are protecting your lips while doing so. With SPF 15, this gloss is packed with vitamins A, C and E.Pretty shades that also protect, I love it! $21
IN BLOOM ARTIFICIAL LIGHT POWDER
This powder was inspired by the bestselling Artificial Light Luminizing Lotion. This shimmery yet soft powder can be used as a highlighter for a beautiful glow. Mix a little of this powder with your favorite lotion and give yourself a bit of shimmer all over. I really look forward to giving this a try. I’m a huge fan of powders and primers from Smashbox. Personalized color picks are not available for this product. $20
So, what do you think about the In Bloom Collection? It reminds me that soon this snow will disappear and my roses will start blooming. I can’t wait!
