26 Feb Makeup Review, Swatches, Shades: Smashbox Primer Oil, Be Legendary Cream Lipstick, Insta-Matte Transformer
Want to look #Instagram-ready in photos? Then get your hands on the Smashbox Primer Oil, $42. Fall in love with your skin—before you put on makeup—with the first ever primer specially formulated in a lightweight, lustrous oil. This fast-absorbing blend of 15 essential and lipid-rich plant oils penetrate instantly to moisturize your face for seamless foundation application with a dewy, youthful finish. In fact, you might think twice before you reach for your makeup.
Smashbox studio artists love face oils for their liquid luminosity and rely on our primers to prep skin for makeup. So it felt like a win-win to develop a breakthrough formula with the pay-off of both cult products. This signature blend is the perfect fusion of 15 oils like jojoba, Arabica and Argan—all handpicked for their known skin benefits. To de-stress your morning routine, calming chamomile and lavender oils sooth senses while the light veil reduces the appearance of dry, fine lines and makes you glow. Add a drop to our Studio Skin foundation for a natural, second-skin look without sacrificing any coverage.
The Primer Oil:
• Softens complexion to make foundation look like skin
• Instantly absorbs and adds radiance
• 15 essential and lipid-rich plant oils including moisturizing jojoba and calming chamomile
• Morning and evening application adds increased moisture in just 4 weeks
• Apply a few drops to split-ends, cuticles, elbows and clavicle for a dewy, youthful sheen.
“It always starts with a great canvas in the studio and radiant skin looks younger and healthier on camera.”—Davis Factor, Founder and Photographer

My skin has a mind of its own, oily one day and super dry the next day. So I’m always a little nervous to apply face oils for fear that it will cause breakouts. But with claims of producing bright, radiant skin – I just had to give it a try and I’m glad I did because I am hooked! I have been applying the Primer Oil on its on and under my foundation and there is a noticeable difference. It’s as though your skin is glowing under foundation! It is now a must-have staple in my makeup bag.
Smashbox has revamped things with their Be Legendary Cream Lipstick, $21, by adding 12 new shades in outrageously rich and creamy reds like “Get Fired“, stunning pinks, sultry berries and super flattering neutrals like “Famous“. What they didn’t change is the beloved by beauty-editors formula, known for gliding on easily and lasting all day.
The Be Legendary blend of intense pigments and luxurious emollients saturates lips with brilliant color that looks amazing and feels feather-light.
Give your lipstick a matte makeover—instantly with Smashbox Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer, $24. Developed to minimize the number of lipsticks to carry, this gel transforms any cream lipstick into a velvety matte finish that’s never chalky!
