Meet: Smashbox’s super hot new Lip Beam


Make up artists that I speak to are always raving about highlighters and the wonders they can do for your face, but using them can often be a little daunting to us laywomen and a bad application can be beyond disastrous. Lucky for us then that our old friends Smashbox have demystified this rather vital of beauty tools with some very cool new products for contouring, highlighting and masking all manner of feature flaws. My pick of the bunch is the Lip Beam Double-Ended Pout Perfector, which is a godsend if you need a little more definition in the lip area or just want to maximise what you’ve got. The all-new multi-tasker delivers just the right amount of luminosity to draw attention where you want it, and is essentially a double-ended highlighter and gloss stick in one. Super easy to use, this ultra-creamy product adds fullness and pout to your lips while drenching them with vitamin-packed moisture and shine. Apply the highlight side to the Cupid’s bow and just under the lower lip to add contour and depth, then apply the pout side to the centre of lips to create the illusion of fuller lips. The result? Instantly plumper looking lips without needing fillers, plus high-shine polymers and antioxidant Vitamins C and E to nourish and protect.
The Smashbox pro tips that comes with this baby is:
For instant plump and pout, darken the area beneath the centre of the bottom lip with your favourite shade of Nude Lip Pencil. Then apply a barely-there pink gloss like Lip Enhancing Gloss in Baby Pout. Finish by using the “highlight” end of Lip Beam to accentuate the Cupid’s bow.
The result? Instantly hot smackers!
