My Take on Smashbox Double Exposure Lip & Cheek Color in Speedracer:
Speedracer is a brownish shade with red undertones and will look good on medium to dusky skin tones. I don’t like this color on my lips which makes them look muddy. I can say the shade is more on nudy side with red undertones.
Packaging: Comes in a black colored compact case with see thorugh screw top lip. Simple and Classy. You can easily identify the shades because of transparent cap if you own more than one of these. The case is quiet sturdy hence less chances of breakage.
Texture: Smooth & creamy which blends like a dream on your cheeks & lips. It’s the product to reach for when you have no time for proper makeup, just dab it on your cheeks for that natural flushing cheeks and you are done. No efforts required for blending. Just can’t go wrong with this one.
Pigmentation: This shade has very sheer pigmentation and gives a very natural glow to cheeks. On fair skin tones this might end up looking muddy as on lips. One has no chances of going overboard with this. It somewhat looks like NYX cream Blush Natural on me. If you want to build up this shade you need lots of product which can make your cheeks looking greasy. This is perhaps a daily wear natural looking blush for me which gives a minimal makeup look and gives natural looking flushed cheeks. If you are looking for pigmented shades then this is not for you.
- User friendly packaging.
- Looks very natural on skin.
- Easily blendable. Good for beginners.
- Not heavy on skin gives a minimal makeup look.
- Availability issues. Can be purchased only through online shopping.
- Very expensive. Would be good to purchase only during sales or special discounts.
- This shade is not much pigmented.
- Staying power is not that great.
- The shade won’t look good on lips & will not suit fair skin tones.
- Shade is not easily buildable.
I would recommend to try out other shades from this range if available on good discounts. This shade has nil pigmentation and not so good staying power. Other shades available have decently good pigmentation than this.
