Smashbox Megatint Long Wear Lip Color Swatches and Review

Smashbox Megatint Long Wear Lip Color

Smashbox Megatint Long Wear Lip Color is new for spring 2013 and these lightweight lippies come in six shades.

These are the first lip tints from Smashbox, but they are definitely more pigmented than a traditional “tint”. They are developed with 40% water which I TOTALLY noticed when applying them. It was actually really neat (ewww who uses that word anymore?), they felt really cooling and slick and I kept thinking it was in my mind until I read about them more.

They have a long wear formula and are supposed to last 8 hours or so.

Smashbox Photo Finish Primers – So Many Choices!

Foundation primers are a product that a few years ago I had no idea I couldn’t live without. I mean, they hardly even existed back then! Now it seems pretty much every brand has at least one.

But get this.

Smashbox doesn’t just have the requisite 1 or 2 of them, they have nine! Nine! That could be the most of any brand, as far as I know.

I love them because they minimize pores, help to blur fine lines and overall make my foundation apply easier. If I am wearing foundation, you can bet I am wearing a primer underneath it.
