Shaking up the local beauty scene yet again, beauty juggernaut Smashbox Cosmetics introduces a fresh selection of head-turners to the Philippine market. Bringing no less than a curated assemblage of pigment-packed beauty essentials, Smashbox fulfills the wishes of beauty junkies and makeup hoarders by officially launching the Cover Shot Eye Palette, Spotlight Palette and Always On Matte Liquid Lipsticks.
THE COVER SHOT EYE PALETTE
“Makeup artist in our L.A. Photo Studio live and die by our pigment-packed eye shadow shades. These seven palettes give you everything you need-including two oversized bases- to create your own cover-worthy looks at home.”- Lori Taylor-Davis, Smashbox Global Pro Lead Artist
THINK: Blow-your-mind eye shadows packed with powerful pigments and mesmerizing colors so you always land the cover shot
Taking inspiration from the of-the-moment trends that breeze through the doors of the iconic Smashbox Studios in Los Angeles, the Cover Shot Eye Palettes are equal parts diverse and hard-hitting. Each swipe packs a punch of heavy-duty color in a single swipe. Giving beauty aficionados all the elements needed to create unforgettable eye makeup looks, each pocket-sized palette houses six high-pigment colors and two base shades that blend like a charm.
Four variations of the go-anywhere beauty staple will be made available in the Philippines at a standard retail price of P1,500.00. Perhaps best described as fire in a palette, Ablaze contains incandescent reds and browns inspired by the sear and scorch of the desert. Golden Hour promises a soft inner glow reminiscent of the sun’s rising and setting, with a moody purple shimmer as an unexpected palate cleanser. Aptly named, the Matte palette delivers ultra-pigmented creamy shades that go from neutral to dramatic. A stark opposite, the Metallic palette features golds, silvers and pearlescent colors, all topped off with a foil finish.
