SMASHBOX + VLADA PETAL METAL COLLECTION
Hi everyone welcome to my first blog. Those of you who know me, know that I love all things beautiful and pretty. I am obsessed with anything that has to do with hair and makeup and to be honest, this pretty much consumes most of my time.
While searching for new products online I came across this new collection from Smash Box the Vlada Petal Metal Collection and I had to have a taste of what it was like. I ventured in Mecca and purchased a few items and the title of this blog pretty much sums up what I think!
Smashbox + Vlada Petal Metal Highlighter
I must admit I am a lover of rose gold but this product went far beyond my expectations. I am not really a highlighter girl but this product caught my eye. The packaging is superb and I adore the way that it is molded with its flower design, I was really hesitant to use it as I didn't want to put my brush in and ruin it.
It comes in two shades, Rosemantic and Gilded Rose. I decided to buy the Rosemantic at this time and I wasn't disappointed. It can be used both wet or dry depending on the amount of intensity you require making it very versitile.
This highlighter can be use on both your face and eyes and is pigmented but so very soft and beautiful. As it is a gel powder product I used a fan brush to apply and went in lightly. Wow!
Rosemantic is a soft rust, gold pearl highlighter and my thoughts were that it is just beautiful.
This product will last you forever, I didn't have to use much.
Smashbox + Vlada Cover Shot Petal Metal Eye Shadow Palette
I adore this palette and so will you if you love neutrals with a subtle hint of metallic.
In each Cover Shot Pallette there are eight shades in each which essentially makes up two quads in one great sized package. There is one double sized base shade with three complimentary shades. The shadows have intense pigment and the blendability is fantastic, while the two base shades are perfect for highlighting the inner corners of your eyes. I feel at the price the palette was I received great value for my money. The shadows are so soft and silky and I able to achieve a beautiful smokey eye for night or day which lasted until I cleansed my face. I am loving this palette and will definitely be adding this to my everyday collection.
Metallics combined with rose gold were bound to be a winner. I am yet to buy the Vlada Be Legendary Petal Metal Liquid but it comes in 3 shades - Desert Rose, In Bloom and XO Vlada.
You can also order online Smashbox Petal Metal Liquid Eyeliner, Smashbox Petal Metal Shimmer Drops, Smashbox Photo Finish Petal Metal Primer and Smashbox Petal Metal Shimmer Spray from either Smashbox.com or Sephora.com
I will definitely be curious to try the other products from this collection. I haven't been so excited for a very long time.
