Smashbox Image Factory Collection A/W 2012

Inspired by some of the iconic images captured at Smashbox Studios over the past few years, Image Factory is the new Autumn/Winter 2012 collection from (who else?) Smashbox. Perfect for the glamorous ladies amongst us, this small yet sophisticated collection features two beautiful neutral eyeshadow palettes, two bold cream blushes and  a selection of waterproof shadow liners and lip glosses.

Smashbox Photo Op Palettes in Icon and Muse

The Photo Op Icon palette contains a selection of dramatic eye colours for a show-stopping evening look, including rich, smokey shades Thunder, Blackout, Roast and Blackcurrant, and pretty neutrals Alabaster and Seafoam in a matte finish.
Muse is filled with an array of gorgeous neutrals which will take you from day to night, with shimmery shades Russet, Truffle,  Sandstorm and Juniper, with mattes Bare and Sumatra for a more pared down, day-time look.

Lip Enhancing Glosses in Fab and Snappy, Waterproof Shadow Liners in Charcoal and Metallic Bronze and Airblush Whipped Cheek Colours in Soft Plum and Nude Rose

The Lip Enhancing Glosses come in sets of two - Fab and Snappy, as seen above, make up one pairing, while you can also get your hands on Luxe and Chic (a dark chocolate plum and a pale baby pink). The glosses have a high-shine, mirror like finish and Smashbox suggest mixing the two shades in your set for an even more unique look.
The beautiful whipped cheek colours come in a mousse-like formula and are designed to blend easily to create an airbrushed, photo-ready look. I can tell you now that Soft Plum is right up there on my 'Dear Santa' list, as it's such a beautiful berry shade that's going to be just perfect for the upcoming festive season
The Waterproof Shadow Liners are limited edition, so be quick if  you have found yourself popping them on your wishlist and can no longer see a future for yourself without them! I know I'll be hunting myself down one, if not both, as they are going to be fantastic for creating a smokey eye in minimal time to take you straight from work to Christmas cocktails - because let's be honest,  no one needs much of an excuse for a knees-up from now until the end of the year, do they? It's good to be prepared!

Oh dear, oh dear. My Christmas list is expanding by the nano-second, and we're still only in September.
