Smashbox Is As Good as Santigold


Santigold is taking her creative touch from the studio to the beauty counter, all thanks to Smashbox.

The genre-bending songstress approached her own capsule collection with the notion of a post-2012 Golden Age where the earth we know fades out to reveal a parallel utopia where the earth, its inhabitants, stars, and extraterrestrials co-exist harmoniously. “Santi really brought her eclectic sense of style to this collaboration,” said Lori Taylor Davis, Smashbox’s Global Pro Lead Artist. “I love creating unique looks with the bright shades she dreamed up!”

A vibrant collage art-inspired collection (with Egyptian influences) resulted that includes two Eye Shadow Collages in Earth As We Know It and Apocalypse Now; two Be Legendary Lip Glosses in All Gold E’rything and Hot Lava; Double Ended Limitless Eye Liner in Azurite Is Never Wrong/El Dorado and Yellow Dwarf/Green Martian; plus nail polish strips. But the coolest item though has to be the Swarovski covered snake-pyramid Lipstick Ring that holds the Be Legendary Lipstick in Still Kickin’.

The eclectic collection is sure to be a must-have amongst beauty buffs and music mavens alike, after all, as the creator herself says, “The thrill is to make it up.”
