Smashbox Wicked Lovely: Swatches and Review

Smashbox Wicked Lovely Collection 

Smashbox embraces the sensual duality within every woman with the Wicked Lovely Collection, an arsenal of vampy shades and sinfully rich textures to create an all-over look that can be charmingly sweet, devilishly sexy, or a little bit of both.

Overall, the wicked lovely collection is a mixture of smokey and vampy shades for fall that's not over the top.  It's a great choice for anyone that's not looking for color pay-off and more of a cooler toned down smokey eye look.  However, this collection was highly disappionting - due to the lack of color pay-off.  The eye shadow duo took several swipes to achieve color and the blush didn't even show up on my NC-30 skin.

Check all the swatches below.

Both eye shadow duo's were very similar and it was hard distinguishing the difference.

The Doubletake Lip Color applied creamy and smooth.  A  perfect combination to accomplish a pink nude lip.

Smashbox Wicked Lip Gloss Swatches

Sultry is the key player in this collection.  A vampy black cherry lip gloss that had excellent color pay-off and is gorgeous. 

Wicked lovely blush rush in charm hardly showed up in my swatches and I just couldn't get a precise color to swatch.  This collection would suit a cooler skin tone much better as mine was much too dark.  Sultry lip gloss was the only item I picked up in the Wicked Lovely collection.

Hope ya'll are having an excellent Saturday!

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
