Smashbox O-Glow Lip & Cheek Colour | Review & Swatches

Saturday, 24 May 2014

Hello Beauties! I hope you're all well and having a lovely Bank Holiday weekend! I haven't got too many plans this weekend, so I'm just spending my 3 days off relaxing and sorting through all of my stuff. It's getting nearer the end of my placement now and I'm going to have to do some serious sorting before I move out as I have so much stuff that just won't fit in the car! Anyway, today I thought I'd pop up a review of a Smashbox product thats a little different. 

I've never tried Smashbox before, despite always wanting to try their Photo Finish Primer and hearing amazing things about their powder, as the high price tags and lack of a counter near me have always put me off (I hate ordering make up online!). However, luckily for me, my housemate used to be a make up artist for Smashbox and she very kindly gave me a couple of bits that she just hasn't got round to using! 

One of the things I was given is the Smashbox O-Glow Cheek Colour. The Smashbox O-Glow Cheek Colour is one of those products designed to suit your individual skin tone and colour, which I think is pretty amazing. This works on the palest of skin to the darkest to create a unique blush which is supposed to match the colour you naturally blush. The O-Glow comes out of the tube as a clear gel ,which I found to be similar to the consistency of the Baby Skin Primer except a little less thick, and then turns into the shade of pink which most suits your skin tone. I know that in the first picture the gel looks as if it has come out with a pink tinge but I promise you thats just because while I was faffing about with my camera, the formula had already started to develop. 

As you can see from the pictures, the clear gel turned into a lovely pink shade. What I love about this product is that its super long lasting and doesn't make your make up look cakey, or take your foundation off when you apply it. It leaves you with a beautiful pink glow which you can also use on your lips. When I was speaking to my housemate about this, she told me that they used to sell a lot of these to Brides, and I can see why. The light pink colour would be perfect for natural bridal make up, and also you can be sure it's going to stay on throughout the day! 

The Smashbox O-Glow is £21 from Boots, so it's a little pricey, but a little really does go a long way with this product as you only need a tiny dab on both cheeks. I'd really recommend this to any blush lovers out there, as it's different but at the same time, very wearable. 

Lots of Love,
