Smashbox Cosmetics, created by the Max Factor heirs, are model-worthy cosmetics for the rest of us. The Skin Tint is no disappointment. A generous 0.25 oz of color fills that trademark black tube, and it goes on sleekly and stays on for hours.

I own Skin Tint in both Smashing Heat and Smashing Ultraviolet. It also comes in Smashing Infrared and Smashing Tint. Smashbox describes Heat as "watermelon, " Infrared as "sheer fresh rose, " Ultraviolet as "sheer berry, " and Tint as "sheer peachy pink." If you look at Ultraviolet and Infrared, they look almost frighteningly bright, fluorescent colors. But they go on sheer and are easy to blend. I would recommend trying them at a Smashbox cosmetics counter before buying; I would have gotten Tint if I hadn't tried it and found it to have hardly any color at all. While heat looks fairly bright and coral, it goes on my face to give it a natural blush shade. Ultraviolet looks bright purple in the tube, but does go on a berry color, givin my skin a deeper blush for evenings out. Because it is so sheer, you can start light, then layer to get the depth of color you want.

I don't like paying $28 for blush or cheek color (I admit it; I'm cheap!) but this is worth it. It lasts for months in the tube, and all day on your face. You can't ask for much more.
