About Face: Review, swatches of Smashbox lip gloss and eyeshadow

SmashboxLipGlossCreamShadow ChesapeakeFamilyAboutFaceCosmetics brand Smashbox doesn’t have the high-profile visibility of a brand like Chanel or Dior. But their consistently impressive products, like Reflection High Shine Lip Gloss and Limitless 15 Hour Wear Cream Shadow, should encourage you to give Smashbox a chance.

Well, it’s been happening! As I mentioned last week, I made a concentrated effort during my winter break to test, swatch, and review items for About Face, and I’ve been trying to make a dent in products I’ve had laying around for a while that have just slipped through the cracks. I discovered a few great things in that “haven’t tested yet” pile, and this week, we’ll take a look a couple of products that nicely amazed me—and they’re both from Smashbox.

I feel like Smashbox is one of those brands available at every Sephora, so you see their products all the time, and every season, they launch some pretty new things, but I wouldn’t say the brand has instant name recognition yet. MAC Cosmetics, NARS, Chanel; those are the big names we’re all accustomed to hearing. But Smashbox has won me over with their eyeshadow palettes (which we’ve featured on About Face before) and their lip stains (which we’ve also featured), and so I was particularly intrigued to try out their Limitless 15 Hour Wear Cream Shadow and Reflection High Shine Lip Gloss.

Both were launched last year, I believe, and promise extremely long wear times and incredibly shimmery finishes. How did they fare? For my reviews of both, read on!
