Smashbox L.A. Lights and Bronze LIghts


Over here at #brownbeauty HQ we are huge fans of Smashbox products, from their immaculate foundations, luminous CC Creams, ever so pretty lip glosses to gorgeously pigmented eye shadows. We always look forward to their new releases so we were very excited when these the L.A. Lights Blendable Lip and Cheek Colour and Bronze Lights landed on our desks. L.A. Lights Blendable Lip and Cheek Colour This is Smashbox's version of a multiple stick and it is available in five shades. Venice Beach Bronze is a deep gold colour which is the perfect highlight for tan rich deep and dark skin tones. The stick can be applied thinly or blended out to nothing and you can wear it on its own or build it up with a powder highlighter. It also has a smudgy on the bottom of the casing but I did not find this to be more effective than a gentle blend with the ring finger. This is a really easy to use multifunctional product which is easily applied to the forehead, nose, cupids bow and chin. On the lips, this is strictly for highlighting. If you want a true lip and cheek tone I would recommend Malibu berry in this range.

Bronze Lights This is the deepest of two shades in this range - the bronzers are matte and the texture is very finely milled. The shade is a warm but not too warm tone without too much orange. I think this is a great shade if you have a medium or tan or complexion for a subtle bronze and depending on your undertone contour. As I have a deeper complexion I use it to powder my t-zone as I would a translucent powder. Surprisingly this product has been perfect at mattifying and depositing minimal colour when applied with a light hand. Although this shade wasn’t made for me but I made it work.

L.A. Lights Blendable Lip and Cheek Colour and Bronze Lights Deep are priced at £25.00 each.
