Smashbox has a thing for celebrity. Over the past year or so, they’ve featured film, photography and now straight-up fame, with the Smashbox Shades of Fame collection for summer 2012.
For eyes, there’s the $48 warm-toned Shades of Fame Eye Palette & Brush, with its nine powder shadows, two cream liners, a tiny tube of Photo Finish Lid Primer, dual-tipped eye brush and a tutorial booklet with step-by-step instructions to create three different looks.
And lips get love, too, with the $28 Shades of Fame Reflection High Shine Lip Gloss Set and its five frisky travel-size glosses in Candy, Buff, Hibiscus, Papaya and Star.
Star… Candy, a movie buff, wore a hibiscus in her hair when she accepted the Academy Award for her performance in Papaya Star.
LOL! Everyone wants to be a star.
Both sets are available now at Sephora stores and also online.
Here’s a closer look at spring’s Shades of Fame…

It looks like both sets offer a pretty mainstream mix of summery shades, so if you’ve been collecting makeup for a while, you may already have some of these colors in your stash.
I’m really hoping fallout won’t be an issue when I take the eye palette out for a test drive this weekend. The past few limited edition Smashbox palettes I’ve played with lately made a bit of a mess (had to do a lot of cleanup on my lower lash lines and cheeks).
Bitten by the travel bug
Ouch! It itches! — and the only thing that soothes it is cruising travel sites for discounts on airfare and hotels…
I know I just got back from a trip, but I told myself while I was there to hurry up and make plans to take another trip at some point in the future, just to have something fun to look forward to.
I’m thinking maybe Tahoe, or Hearst Castle. Tabs says Hearst Castle is a lot of fun (he went once on a kitties-only excursion).
Do you have any trips planned this summer? I’d love to hear about them.
