Lately I’ve been finding myself trying to shake up my look by exploring new looks with makeup, but as we all know feeding the make up habit can be an expensive investment. Fortunately to get me started on my colorful new journey I was lucky enough to be on the receiving end of lovely gift from the people over at Smashbox cosmetics!
The Samshbox Fame Collection comes with 9 eye shadows, 2 cream eye liners and a double ended brush. I don’t typically use cream eye liner so my experience with this should be interesting. The colors range from shimmery neutrals to bright sea blue. I think the range of colors provided are great for summer, fora person like me who isn’t necessarily ready to try anything as bright as what maybe you’d see on Nicki Minaj, this is a good start. The kit also came with a bonus sample of the Photo Finish lid primer, which is also new to me, since I’ve been sinning and applying shadow without primer my whole life!

Forgive my camera, I don’t have access to my DSLR right now…the very thought of not having her makes my eyes water, so I tried to make due with my camera phone…I know don’t get me started.
L-R: Safari, Pacific, Praline, Mocha
The pigmentation as you can probably tell from the photos despite the poor quality is fairly sheer, but buildable a quality I like because as I said I consider myself to be a novice and this allows me to me to cover any mistakes I may encounter during my application. My favourites are Sherbert, and Pacific because their bright and perfect to compliment all the hot summer dresses I plan on stocking my closet with in the coming months.
