Smashbox + Vlada ‘Petal Metal’ Collection
Oh la la! I just went to a VERY exciting launch event and I’m seriously smitten with it. In fact; it’s SO good I had to come straight home and blog about it. Seriously, this collection is AMAZING and despite the fact it only launched today, some pieces have already sold out. Which is another reason why I had to hop online ASAP to share snaps and info; I didn’t want anyone to miss out on getting the piece(s) they want!
That’s right, Smashbox have collaborated with lip artist and Instagram star, Vlada. It started with a rose gold lipstick and they got so excited, the ideas bloomed into a 16-piece mega collection! Inspired by her signature molten-metal rose gold lip-drip art, this universally flattering colour is both tough and pretty. Whilst some pieces of the Petal Metal collection are super-statement, like the liquid lipsticks, there’s also some really pretty and wearable pieces which make your skin look natural, beautiful and illuminated with a natural radiance, like the petal metal primer and rose gold toned neutrals eyeshadow palette. My personal favourite thing (so far!) has to be the powder highlighters. They are beautiful rose gold tones with a silky smooth texture and a luminous, radiant finish. Both powerful and pretty, they transform tired skin and sculpt cheekbones in one swift sweep. I’m excited to really get stuck into the full collection, but for now… feast your eyes!
The Smashbox + Vlada ‘Petal Metal’ collection is out now and available at Boots and Smashbox. Personally I’d keep an eye out for the the Petal Metal Primer (Smashbox do a killer primer and this one illuminates), as well as the Always On Petal Metal Liquid Lipstick and the Petal Metal Powder Highlighters. Also the Petal Metal Shimmer Drops look really cool, you can use them as a metallic lip topper, eyeshadow topper or intense highlighter. Fabulous!
