The Muse kinda sorta thinks that Smashbox was thinking all about her when they created the Smashbox Muse Collection.
Indeed, I think they got the creative energy flowing and had a mental image of the Muse as they mixed up, created, and finally released the Smashbox Muse Collection.
Oh well at least I’d like to think that’s how it went. What? A girl can dream.
When I originally blogged Smashbox Muse I didn’t even realize a blush was being released with the collection! Well duh and hello gorgeous! Smashbox Muse Blush Rush in Masterpiece was obviously made exclusively for me because it’s most flattering on this Muse’s chubby little cheeks…although it’s exclusive for the Muse she’ll share and let you buy one of your own..if you must….teehee!
The packaging on Smashbox Muse Blush Rush is quite cute as it has a flip top lid with little paint spatters all over the compact and the outer box packaging, flip it up to reveal the blush and a nice size mirror! I was slightly scared of the shade which they have entitled Masterpiece in keeping with the “arty” theme of things, as it appears to be a warmer, muddier orange shade and normally that’s not quite flattering on my face. To look at it one would never know how pigmented it is as the formula, upon first glance, appears quite chalky however it blends seamlessly and offers a nice warm peachy pop of color to my cheeks! Likey! See? I told you they had me in mind when they created this collection.
In keeping with Spring I do think that the shade would go perfectly with greens, golds, and browns for a warm, fresh look. It’s suggested on the website to prep and prime with the new Smashbox Hybrid Luminizing Primer (review coming shortly) and apply Smashbox Blush Rush in Masterpiece on top. I haven’t yet tried this but I will do so shortly as I’m curious what the finished results will look like.
All in all I’m quite pleased with the blush and I was finding myself wishing that they had released other shades. The blush is $24 USD and available now at www.smashbox.com
