Smith & Cult could be the most beautiful brand out there! Absolutely stunning, but the products are very much substance and style.
They have only been around about a year so still really new to the UK, and very much thought of as a nail polish brand. They brought out some lip products earlier this year, and now they are extending even further with some beautiful eye products.
First, here is one of four new Book of Eyes eyeshadow palettes. This one is called Soft Shock for a smokey eye look.
Really creamy textures, you can wet the brush to get an even more dramatic effect. I'm so glad the palette includes a brush. You may use another one, but it's always good to have the option, and if you wanted to give this as a gift, having a brush there means it's the whole package. Here are the eyeshadows with a dry brush:
You can see the top eyeshadow, the one on the top left in the palette, isn't very noticeable - more of a subtle highlight or to even out your skin tone on your eye as a base. The others are really beautiful, especially the full-on silver foil glitter - stunning for this time of year when you can go crazy with some sparkle! The new eyeshadow palettes are £34.
Also in the new eye range is their Lash Dance Mascara.
Lengthening and thickening, it has a specially designed silicone brush to deliver maximum impact on every lash. It only comes in one shade - Velvet Black. I don't know about you but I only want black mascara! It is £24. There is one other product in the new eye range which is a liquid eyeliner for £21.
There are two new lip stains for November from Smith & Cult. One of called Kissing Tiny Flowers which is such a beautiful name! It looks like a caramel nude. Whilst here I have Mad Heat, a deep crimson.
It is a bold and matte look, but creamy rather than drying. I need to try this out properly and test it against multiple cups of tea, so I shall report back. The new Smith & Cult lip stains are £24 each.
Finally, we come back to Smith & Cult's initial range, the nail polishes. There are two new polishes for AW16 - 1972, which is a stunning rose gold and Darjeeling Darling, a forest green. Plus they have launched a matte top coat. I have Darjeeling Darling but I am definitely getting 1972 as well - like most people, I adore anything rose gold!!
So there you have it - new Smith & Cult launches for this season, and everything is absolutely beautiful. The packaging is amazing, but the brand is so much more than just looking good. You can find all these new launches, plus the existing range, at SpaceNK, Cult Beauty and Net a Porter.
