Smashbox The Santigolden Age by Santigold Collection for Summer 2014
For this exclusive collection, Santigold plays with the notion of approaching the post-2012 Golden Age – an age where the earth as we know it ceases to exist, revitalizing itself and morphing into its own beautifully balanced, utopic mirror image. This is a world where the earth, stars, humans, aliens and all co-exist harmoniously.
She’s partnered with Smashbox to create this vivid and playful color range, influenced by her strong creative sense. Already known for her mix-and-match sensibility, Santi is encouraging her collage style with this collection. From the themed, shade names to the one-of-a-kind ring design, she’s blended her style, hand-crafted artwork, fashion sense and love of color to create this exciting summer line.

NARS Cosmetics introduces Contour Blush, the ultimate essential in makeup artistry and the secret weapon to creating natural-looking definition with a luminous finish. The beautifully balanced duos feature a lighter shade to illuminate the highpoints of the face and a deeper shade to enhance definition. Ultra-smooth, lightweight texture lends itself to a luminous finish and the specially designed contouring formula visual depth and dimension in a single swipe. To create the perfect contour on cheeks, apply the deeper shade of the Contour Blush to the hollows of the cheek and along the hairline, sweep the light shade across the cheekbone toward the temple to soften and highlight. Finish the look with a pop of your favorite blush shade on the apples of the cheek.

The description is confusing: “[t]his satin finish moisturizing lipstick offers rich, matte color,” and the formula is also supposed to be hydrating, long-wearing, and comfortable to wear. It’s a satin finish–which is not matte–but it’s also matte. The finish is truer to satin than it is to matte, and it takes two and a half hours before that shine wears down enough that it looks more matte. It did have good color coverage, and the consistency was lightly creamy without slipping too easily. The formula was lightly hydrating, and the color lasted for six and a half hours and left a stain behind. I didn’t notice any scent or taste.
