I absolutely adore the promo model’s image for the Smashbox In Bloom Spring 2011 Collection. It’s so fresh and clean, very natural for Spring with a minimalist finish but just the right amount of makeup to flatter.
But I couldn’t help but wonder how they got such a great eye look from the Smashbox In Bloom Eye Palette which contains some really smoky shades. This is one reason you probably should never depend on stock imagery to make your makeup choices as I’m guessing the palette looks way better in the flesh than it does in the promo shot.
Anyone with me?
I’m sorry, I swear, I’m not rushing your Holidays away but as we head through the Holidays and we come out hopefully intact, Spring will be full in your face more and more in the makeup world.
Last year, Smashbox brought us a rather fun Valentine’s selection with the Heartbreaker Collection. Did you enjoy it? I kinda liked the idea of a Spring Collection inspired by romance, Valentine’s Day, etc….
This year, Smashbox embraces more of a flirty, fresh Spring look. It’s still romantic but its also lighter, fresher, and more natural!

You might recognize the new liner releasing from a past post I did when this originally debuted on QVC a few months ago. I thought SPF in the lipgloss was an interesting extra. The palette I’m iffy on and have to see in person but if it can recreate the soft eye look on the model, I’m in.
