Reviw & Swatches: Smashbox Halo Long Wear Blush in Blissful

Hey Guys and Dolls,

I hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend 😀

I’ve been playing around with a few of the Smashbox products I got at an event recently while in Dubai. I’ve been testing out the super popular Halo Long Wear Blush in Blissful so I decided to review and swatch it for you.

The product is released through a shaving type mechanism. You just twist the bottom of the container and the product is shaved and exposed for use. It’s actually super smart, it keeps everything mess free and hygienic.

I suggest you work very light handedly with this product and build up the color because it’s pretty intense and can look clownish really quick. But blended out well and applied in a light layer gives for a perfect rose-mauve flush. Because of it’s finely milled and creamy texture it blends so effortlessly and flawlessly into the skin. It also lasts for a while and showed minimal signs of fading after 8 hours of wear.

THE VERDICT:

9/10 for this incredibly gorgeous and powerful blush. the texture, pigmentation and blendability are incredible. The only reason why it doesn’t get a 10/10 is the pigmentation is so strong that it could prove a little fussy and over done if not carefully applied. But apart from that, the packaging is great and the product is up there as one of my fave blushes. I’ll probably be rocking this in the winter for that perfect winter flush. I’m not surprised these blushes are some of Smashbox’s most popular and renowned products, I’ll definitely be having a look at these in Sephora when I head to Cali this summer. My American readers can get the blushes and other Smashbox products from sephora.com or smashbox.com. My birtish girls can get this from smashbox.co.uk. Unfortunately I don’t no where my danish girls could get their hands on this. They use to sell it in Matas and Magasin but not anymore.  Perhaps the British site delivers to Europe but I’m not sure.

What are your favorite Smashbox products? I received a lot more goodies from Smashbox so keep a look out for more reviews and swatches.
