Sephora Must-Have: Smashbox "Radiance" blush
Back many months ago when I visited a Cosmetics Company Outlet, there was an extremely pigmented hot fuchsia Estee Lauder blush. I passed on it, and regretted the decision for months. I decided to go to Sephora to try and find a similar product, and I ended up with a Smashbox blush in the shade "Radiance". You can tell it's bright, but it's even brighter in real life! It has nice, simple packaging. There's a mirror in the bottom of the container that swings out, which I never even noticed until I took these pictures. Cute, but pointless. It looks scary when you swipe it with your finger, but it actually goes on pretty sheer when used with a blush brush. It's a color that looks really natural & pretty on my skintone, and it's become on of my go-to blushes. I also like the finish- no sparkle here, which is nice for when I want to do something more subtle. I've never tried any Smashbox products before this one, and I don't think there's anything else from the brand I'm dying to try, but this blush has become Holy Grail for me. At $24 it was a splurge, but a worthy one!
