Smashbox Cosmetics has been a part of an industrial empire for its Factor brothers, Smashbox Studios, that contains a photo studio, a modeling service and a clothing line. The brothers remain at the helm, although the cosmetics arm of the company has been offered to Estee Lauder in the summer of 2010. Smashbox had something of a beginning to exist in Britain. On the night of the launching in 1998, there was a Smashbox PR drugged and raped with somebody believed to be a buddy of the Factors. No one has been charged from the resulting furor attractiveness editors sidestepped Smashbox and gave coverage to it. With the beauty business turning its back it fought to make its own mark. Perhaps the business will proceed – the newest appears to have gained more coverage throughout the past year or so.
