Okay, Tina Turner, what’s love got to do with it?
We’re looking at the new Smashbox spring collection, a six-piece release called Love Me, at the Sephora store in Novato.
Oh, and I’d also like to introduce you to my new friend/Sephora Novato mascott, Husky Dog.
I guess she was hanging out and waiting for her assistant. I tried to strike up a convo, but she paid me no mind…
First off, the two eyeshadow palettes from the collection. If I could only pick two things from the release, these are two I’d get. They’re really soft, almost creamy, and very pigmented. Mmm, hmm…
The line art on the packaging spells “Love Me.” (The heart is the “M.”) And when you open it, you see the curvy lines on the pan.
And the blush. If you look closely, you’ll see hearts on the pan…
…and hearts on the two lipsticks. (Or are those peace signs?? Or rabbit ears??).
I’m not really into the liquid liner… The stiff felt tip seems like it would be a little hard to control. When I’m working with liquid liners, I like the ones with thinner, flexible tips that have some give to ’em. I don’t know, I just feel like they’re easier to control. The tip on this thing, though, looks like a Sharpie.
I guess you could tag or boyfriend or girlfriend with it… Maybe write, “MINE!”
Here are some swatches of the collection on my NC42 skin. Check them out, and let me know if you like anything.
Another one to add to the Valentine’s Day wish list? I’d add the eyeshadow palettes, and maybe the lipsticks, and the blush, too, which is everything…except for the liner. LOL!
