The new Smashbox Crystalized Makeup Collection launched today for Spring 2019 in collaboration with the Hoodwitch and it follows right along with the trend we’ve seen from other collections that recently launched like the It Cosmetics Gemstone Brush Therapy Duo Collection and Revlon Crystal Aura Collection.
I’m not really a huge crystal or gemstone believer. Shrug. Sorry!? Smashbox collaborated with a crystal expert, Bri Luna (the Hoodwitch). I have no idea who she is. Again, I’m sorry. According to Smashbox they teamed up with Bri to celebrate beauty rituals inspired by the transformative quality of crystals. The collection is infused with crystals to enhance your magic (I may or may not be rolling my eyes).
I’m obviously the worst kind of person to talk about collections like this. I’m not knocking those who believe in the magic of crystals, etc…! I just don’t. Makeup should be fun but sometimes it feels like brands just over reach. In this case, it feels very much like Smashbox extended themselves too much. That being said the collection actually looks really nice. I’m just not a believer in auras, crystals, my horoscope telling me whether or not this month I’m going to strike it rich or not, and whether or not Mercury being in retrograde is going to screw with my day.
