Great start, flaky finish.

When I first applied Bionic Mascara I really loved it, my lashes looked fuller and longer. My problem was the longevity of the product. Even with my new tube within a few hours of  applying Bionic Mascara it would start to get dry and flake off. I am a little surprised I love so many of the Smashbox products and was disappointed this wasn’t as great as the rest of the line.

Smashbox Bionic Mascara
What it is:
An innovative ionic mascara.

Smashbox Bionic is the first ionic mascara—it will leave you with longer, stronger, and more voluminous lashes! The specially-engineered brush coats lashes with our revolutionary long-wearing, water-resistant formula for a dramatic full lash. Aloe, silk, and wheat protein strengthen and condition.

Natural is beautiful!

Simple, chic, and sometimes with freckles shining through, the au natural look gets updated and subtly illuminated with peachy, pinky shades to give a slight punch that looks almost doll-like. Makeup artist Tyron Machusen explains, “For lips, these shades of apricot and pink are flattering on everyone and really complement a gorgeous, fresh complexion.”

For eyes that glisten, first cover dark circles, and even the upper lid with a reflective concealer. Apply champagne shadow to lids, then define the upper lash line with deep brown shadow. Bolster lashes with a coat of lash primer, and finish with blue-black mascara to instantly brighten the eyes.

PEARLY LIPS:

For lush lips, first smooth them out with a lip exfoliator. Then outline and fill them in with shimmery nude lipstick. Take the shine up a notch with a layer of peachy gloss.

TRY THIS:

Emulsion Lip Exfoliant by Smashbox is the first sugar-based, peppermint, lip exfoliator that is perfectly edible, and smells delicious. Experience a cooling sensation as poppy seeds and sugar granules gently remove dry, flaky skin, while shea butter, jojoba, and antioxidants condition and revitalize lips.

To use: Apply emulsion to top and bottom lips – working it in a circular motion to exfoliate. Allow emulsion to remain on lips for several seconds until a cooling sensation begins. To remove, moisten a cotton pad with water and gently wipe away scrub. Follow with a generous application of Smashbox’s Treatment Lipstick.
