Makeup Steals: Smashbox Bestsellers Set


It's not a secret to my friends that I am a huge fan of Smashbox primers. I've tried numerous brands but, always end up coming back to this one. On a recent trip to Nordstrom Rack I was shocked when I saw the "bestsellers set" from Smashbox for a mere $19. This is a steal since it is currently retailing for $39 online. The set comes with a full size Photo Finish Foundation Primer, a sample size Photo Finish Lid Primer, a sample size Photo Op Eyeshadow Trio, a sample size Layer Lash Primer, and a sample size Full Exposure Mascara.  This is a great set because it allowed me to try four new products without having to spend a ton of cash. The Photo Finish Foundation Primer normally retails for $36 and it's well worth the price! It smooths and perfects the skin, fills in lines and creates the perfect canvas for your foundation.


The Photo Finish Lid Primer retails for $20. I was surprised at how much I liked it. It goes on smooth, doesn't crease, brightens the eye area, and causes eyeshadow to not only show up, but last longer. According to it's description on line, it can even be used under the eyes as a concealer.


The Photo Op Eyeshadow Trio is in "Multi-Flash" and it retails for $28. I love the colors for creating a natural eye. I've found myself reaching for this trio on a daily basis.



The Layer Lash Primer retailing for $19 is the perfect companion to the Full Exposure Mascara which retails for $20. The lash primer strengthens, thickens and protects your lashes. The mascara is paraben free and is reported to create a 104% increase in volume. It also boasts to be smudge proof, non-clumping, and non-flaking.


If you have a Nordstrom Rack in your area, check it out! There may be a few sets left. I have thoroughly enjoyed mine.

Happy Styling,
