Haul: Smashbox (Fusion Lights/Primer/Lip Gloss)

So this is my last Smashbox stuff for a while I think! :P

I bought the Photo Finish primer in Light (travel size, $16), although I SWEAR I clicked on the regular... oh well. If I don't like it, I can return it! :D I tried a little and I feel like it made my face dry or something... I don't know. I'll test it out again and see if it's okay.

For free I got the lip enhancing gloss in Aura. It's such a pretty color! I didn't think I'd like it when I saw it in the bottle, but it's different on your lips. I'll do a FOTD wearing it. It was hard to get a good swatch.

I also got the Fusion Soft Lights in Resolution for free with the "Let's Do Lunch" special. It's pretty versatile. The brown colors have a little bit of a pink undertone, which would give a good glow to blush. The white color would be a great highlight, etc. I'll have to experiment a couple ways and see. All the colors have a shimmer, except the darker brown one, which I think is kind of weird, but okay!

Either way, I'm loving the Smashbox.

EDM is fab, their blushers and concealers are really amazing :)
I've never tried Smashbox - what would you suggest I try first?

It really depends what you're into, I suppose. I really do recommend ordering either Tuesday or Thursday during the lunch hours so you have the opportunity to try out a product you might not normally purchase. The "Try Me Kit" is really awesome! For $29 you get to sample some of their cream liners, eye brow fillers, foundation primer, AND you get a double ended brush which will be useful to you whether you like their products or not. One thing I don't really recommend is the "photo op under eye brightener" because I feel like it doesn't really make a difference for me. BUT it's included in the "Try Me Kit."

(also, the kit comes with a DVD showing you how to use the products, which can be helpful. it's like, 5 minutes, but I watched it! :D )

Additionally, Smashbox provides samples at checkout. :)
