Smashbox O-Glow – the innovative blusher that creates a unique glow

Fed up of blushers that are always the wrong shade? Smashbox O-Glow has been designed to take the frustration out of getting that rosy glow. Check out the download in my Smashbox O-Glow review.

Smashbox O-Glow - the innovative blusher that creates a shade unique to you

When buying a new blusher do you ever find that sometimes you’ll pick a shade so bright you look like Coco the clown? Finding the right blusher shade for you can be tricky, especially if you’re already wearing makeup. Whilst you can try it on, the lighting in the shop may mislead you into thinking it’s the right shade when it’s actually too light or too bright for you. Smashbox understands the perils relating to finding the perfect blusher shade and as a solution has created Smashbox O-Glow.

Smashbox O-Glow is a innovative gel based blush which uses unique technology to create a blush that is unique to you. Using your skin chemistry the blusher reacts with the moisture in your skin to create your own unique flush. It’s suitable for all skin tones from light to dark and has won awards like the Glam Beauty Editor’s Pick Award and Best of Sephora Award nominee for Best Blush. I’ve heard of lipsticks that adapt to create your own unique tone but not a blusher so I was intrigued to give the award winning blush a try.

Smashbox O-Glow blush formula has a clear white gel that starts changing colour as soon as I put it on my fingertips. I applied it with my fingers as recommend and blended it gently into my skin. The formula is quite thin but the blush feels really silky and glided effortlessly onto my skin. Whilst I’m pretty pale and what you could consider a English Rose the blush is very pale and gives a really subtle rosy tint. It’s a lot lighter then the blushers I would normally use, but I do like the really natural flushed look it gives.

By the evening the blush appeared to have been absorbed by my skin as it was no longer visible.

Smashbox O-Glow is certainly a novel concept and I was really intrigued to see what sort of blush it would create. The colour tone is very light but does give quite a subtle rosy tint which is good for that ‘just been for a run look’. It does fade after a few hours so would need reapplying, a little disappointing as a lot of the blushers I use last all day.
