I’m completely smitten with the new Smashbox Be LegendaryTriple Tone Lipstick.  Each long and lean lipstick contains three shades of the Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick.  Let your imagination be your guide!  You can apply this product and blend with a lipbrush for a subtle ombre look, or layer it over itself for a modern, choppy flash of color!

Smashbox Be Legendary Triple Tone Lipstick swatches from left to right:  Sunset Ombre– fuchsia, pink and orange, Red Ombre– deep red, medium red, and bright red, Berry Ombre– eggplant, violet, and a cool-hued pink, and Nude Ombre– medium, light, and extra pale neutrals.

To apply the product for a true, subtle ombre effect, apply first to the top lip.  Then flip the lipstick upside down, and apply to the bottom lip.  Perfection!

Retail price is $24 per lipstick. These four shades are all that is available at the moment, but I am certainly hoping for more!

Grab them at Smashbox.comSephora, Macys.com, Nordstrom, or Ulta.

beauty blog, makeup blog, product reviews blog, beauty reviews blogI am so excited to share the latest from Smashbox with you readers! The “ombre lip” is a very hip trend of the moment and a personal favorite of mine, as the look is more like modern art than day-to-day makeup.  Smashbox has launched a new lipstick to nail the trend with ease: Smashbox Be Legendary Triple Tone Lipstick.  They’ve sent along some shades of Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick I’ve never featured before here on Raging Rouge to accompany the new product!  I’m looking forward to showing you everything!

MAC x Nicki Minaj Collection Review

Nicki Minaj is well known for her singing and beauty, but the first thing I think of when I hear the name Nicki Minaj is the pitiful dental patient who awoke from her wisdom tooth surgery sorely disappointed that she hadn’t been transformed into Nicki while she was under.  If you haven’t seen it, do surf over.  It’s simply hilarious.  Since we’re on the topic of the gorgeous Nicki Minaj, and in perhaps dire need of a diversion, I want to introduce you to the Mac x Nicki Minaj collection.

There are actually six different shades in this collection that appear to be stark white when they are in the jar.  Don’t let that first glance fool you!  Three of them are above, and when they are applied each has a different undertone for you to enjoy.  Make Up For Ever Star Lit Powder swatches from left to right: 2- Frozen Gold, 3- Frozen Orange (that really has more of a peachy look), and 4- Frozen Green.

Overall this product is so incredibly versatile!  Do try one of the subtle shades for a highlight.  Grab bolder shades for date-night, or even for Halloween!

Retail price is $21 each.  They’re addicting! You can grab a handful at the Make Up For Ever website, or Click HERE to buy from Sephora.
