The divine and dishy Nina from Smashbox sent out O-Glow to Megs Makeup to review. Oh, I know you’ve heard of the amazing O-Glow. It has all of these super vitamins and anti-oxidants in it. It’s a blush that you squeeze out of a tube, then you apply the clear gel. A very little goes a long way. The kicker is, Smashbox claims O-glow will magically turn your cheeks to the color you’re suppose to blush naturally. I have no idea how the clear gel knows what you are suppose to blush naturally. I brought home a D in chemistry. I couldn’t make fungi grow in a petri dish, you think I know how gel detects color?

I just keep having these flashbacks..

Meg, 1986 :Mom, why would you put on blue lipstick?
Mom: Oh, it doesn’t go on blue! It’s a mood lipstick, it can tell what the perfect color my lips are supposed to be. Then it turns my lip that color.
Meg: You’re lips are bright pink. I’m in a bad mood. Give me the tube, I want to try.
Mother hands the tube over
Meg: My lips are bright pink now too. This is stupid.
Fade Out..

I know, the mood ring was always black on me, whether I was crying from pain or happiness the damn stone stayed black. So I don’t know if I exactly believe the hype on O-Glow detecting your natural blush. I know it felt wonderful on. It applied great. A little does go a very, very long way. I was also very happy with the color it produced on my cheeks.

Here’s what Smashbox claims for their O-Glow..” O-GLOW work on every skin tone, from the lightest to the darkest, to give everyone a naturally gorgeous glow. When applied, your skin’s moisture activates the energizing Goji Berry-C Complex™. It creates a microcirculatory effect, producing a rosy flush that lasts all day. This revolutionary silicone-based clear gel works on every skin tone and is microcirculating and skin energizing to keep cheeks naturally flushed for hours. O-GLOW’s unique Goji Berry-C Complex™ formula is full of antioxidants like vitamin C, pomegranate seed oil and marine plankton for added healthy-skin benefits. The completely natural looking, preservative and fragrance-free formula glides on smoothly for a healthy, glowing blush that’s you, only prettier.

Ladies, please post your thoughts on Smashbox O-Glow, did it leave you with a natural blush or should I look into a pet rock?
