The Factor brothers are confident you won't smash your makeup box if it contains their lineup of cosmetics. In addition to makeup for the lips, eyes, and face, Smashbox Beauty Cosmetics offers makeup brushes, pencils and sharpeners, stylist bags, makeup removers, cleansers, and moisturizers. The company's products are sold in stores the likes of Ulta, Sephora, and Nordstrom, primarily in the US but also in Canada. Smashbox Beauty Cosmetics came into existence in 1996 when brothers David and Dean Factor (great-grandsons of legendary makeup artist Max Factor) became fed up with the quality of cosmetics made for photographic use. In 2010 the company was acquired by The Est�e Lauder Companies.
