What: Smashbox Platinum Surge makeup kit
Why: Every beauty needs minimal makeup when she’s on vacation
Where: Sephora stores and online at Sephora.com
Palm trees, tropical breezes, white sand beaches: I wish I could ditch this cold, rainy weather for a quick winter getaway to someplace warm like Australia, Tahiti or Maldives.
Calgon take me away … to Maldives.
Whether or not you’re one of those lucky ladies bound for a tropical vacation this holiday, don’t leave home without the Smashbox Platinum Surge makeup kit. With its four fab products, your minimal vacation makeup needs are covered. You’ll look good whether you’re sipping pina coladas at the beach bar or dancing the night away in your living room at home.
Eye Shadow Quad in Smolder – pearl, gold, cocoa and plum
Fusion Soft Lights Palette (this is a highlighter/cheek color) in Glisten – deep bronze, gold, warm pink and tan
Moonbeam lipgloss – shimmery muted pink
Starlight lipgloss – clear with silver shimmer
The products in the kit have a light color payoff and very subtle sparkle. It may not appeal to hard core makeup junkies who prefer concentrated color, but I like it because when I’m on vacation I don’t like wearing heavy, high maintenance makeup. At the most I’ll wear waterproof mascara, a light wash of eye shadow on the lids, lipgloss and a touch of bronzer. The Platinum Surge kit has all I need to achieve that perfect touch of color!
Everything comes in a sleek, silver case you can easily throw into a beach tote. Now, head to the beach, girl, before I tackle you and steal your plane ticket!
Vacation, all I ever wanted
Does anyone else have vacation on their mind? Where would you go?
