Photo Finish Vitamin Glow Primer
Smashbox are undoubtably the go-to brand when it comes to makeup primers and the Photo Finish Vitamin Glow Primer is living, breathing proof of why their reptation is stellar. The primer perfectly bridges the gap between skincare and makeup with a nourishing formula packed with antioxidants and vitamins B, C, and E. Designed to create a healthy-looking glow, the gel primer hydrates and revitalises the complexion to prep for makeup.
Superfan Mascara Black
As a self-trained mascara pro with over ten years’ experience in testing and trialling, I can spot a good mascara when I see one. And let me tell you, the Superfan Mascara Black is one of the best to ever grace my lashes. The lengthening mascara has a jet-black formula that wraps each and every lash with volume while lifting them to whole new heights for up to 12 hours without smudging or flaking. If you’re a fan of a before and after, you’re going to be very satisfied with these results.
Photo Finish Setting Spray Weightless
Another day another setting spray that you’ll be raving about to anyone and everyonewho will listen (been there). But the Photo Finish Setting Spray Weightless wouldn’t have made it to this roundup if it weren’t worth raving about, and boy, we are raving about this. Not only does it set makeup perfectly in place for up to 16 hours (tried, tested, and very much proven), the formula leaves a weightless finish over the skin that won’t feel sticky or greasy. Pro tip: mist over the skin after every step of makeup for the ultimate hold.
Always On Cream To Matte Lipstick in Bawse
Every iconic makeup brand has an iconic lipstick with a legion of loyal followers, and the Always On Cream To Matte Lipstick is that icon for Smashbox. Living up to its name, the rich lipstick stays put on the lips for up to 12 hours without fading, flaking, bleeding, or smudging so you don’t have to touch up every time you drink or eat. Made with an oil primer complex, the lipstick feels comfortable and soft on the lips and won’t leave that drying feeling that leads to the eventual over licking of the lips. If you’re looking for recommendations, we’re very invested in Bawse, a perfect deep red.
O-Glow Intuitive Cheek Colour
It’s official, blusher is back and let’s be honest, it’s the best it’s ever been. And you’ll soon realise that Smashbox’s O-Glow Intuitive Cheek Colour has a lot to do with that. The gel blusher has been formulated with lots of science and reacts with your skin to create a flushed colour to match your skin tone to create a dewy glow that is literally perfect for you. No more faffing over blusher shades!

Halo Fresh Powder Foundation
We get it, powder foundation sounds scary at first, but we’re here to tell you that the Halo Fresh Powder Foundation is going to change that perception. The light coverage powder is lightweight, buildable, and oh so easy to apply, and the skincare infused formula could actually tip it over the line of actually being skincare. With goji berries, gold, and peptides, the powder leaves the skin feeling super soft and with a flawless finish that won’t crease or cake for up to eight hours. We promise, you won’t regret giving powder foundation a chance.
