It may not be the most organic foundation on the market. But, it is the lightest studio-quality foundation on the market, Smashbox Camera Ready BB Water Foundation with SPF 30.
It's gives smooth, full-coverage without suffocating the pores. You can run around in it but it wouldn't budge, yet the texture is so light, that you don't notice you're wearing it.
Light but durable.
Smashbox may give MAC a run for its money when competing for studio photo shoots and filming but thank god, they think about real-life people who want to look fabulous in a snap without being loaded down with tons of products and the time consuming it.
Smashbox L.A. Lights Blendable Lip & Cheek Color sticks, are their riff on NARS' iconic Multiple Sticks. If NARS is New York-centric, Los Angeles native, Smashbox pays homage to the beautiful sunsets, sun rises, and the range of natural light dappling through-out the whole city, from beach to mountains.
Fairfax Fuchsia pays homage to the city's mid-district of edgy and creative district of the young people and the rebels who made the Fairfax their home with an edgy, in-your-face shocking pink, that when dappled and blended right, imparts a healthy pink flush on your cheeks and lips.
If you want "L.A. Film Noir" with Angeleno makeup, go no further than Smashbox L.A. Lights Blendable Lip & Cheek Color stick in the appropriately-named, "Sunset & Vine."
It's a rich, deep pinot noir, a vampy red, in a stick that goes both ways, a wine-rich blush and wine-ripen lips. With a simple swipe of bold, black mascara, you can be a Forties film noir' Lauren Bacall in a trench, ready to whistle.
Whether it be simply sweet with Fairfax Fuchsia or film noir elegant with Sunset & Vine against the backdrop of Smashbox Camera Ready BB Water Foundation with SPF 30 , you can be simply sophisticated with Smashbox L.A. Lights Blendable Lip & Cheek Color Sticks.
