I've always romanticized the desert. With its rock formations, cactus, and coyotes, it's mysterious, and, well, hot. Repeat viewings of Thelma & Louise and No Country for Old Men haven't begun to temper my obsession, and this new Smashbox Desert Chic collection (available May 1) is sure to keep it cooking all summer long. My faves:
Fusion Eye & Cheek Color in Heatwave. With its zig-zag pattern, this huge color brick, a Sephora exclusive, is total eye candy. It's a multi-purpose palette with taupe, tawny, turquoise, and cactus green shimmer shadows that look as amazing on your eyes as they do in the compact.
Desert Chic Eye Shadow in 24. Smudge this intensely sparkling gold over your entire lids and even drag a little underneath your lower lashlines. When the setting sun hits your eyes and picks up all of the glimmering bits, I promise you'll look gorg.
