Smashbox smashes it out of the park with two new eye products that have become staples in my beauty bag. First up, I am an eyeliner and mascara junkie and would probably rather leave the house naked than without a cheeky bit of definition around the old eyes.
So, when these puppies came in, I couldn’t wait to try them.
First up, the Smashbox Waterproof Shadow Liners are fab-u-lous. A chunky pen like format that is both a stay-put shadow and long-wearing liner in one. It’s totally waterproof and crease-resistant which means the end of dreaded panda-eye effect. Yay! I mostly wear it as an eyeliner and it is fantastic for getting that sexy vampy 1960s mod eye that I love so much. But I also love it smeared across the eyelid as a dark shadow that is great for a smokey eye by night. The creamy formula glides on easily and doesn’t drag or pull at the eye area. LOVE!
Also new from our Smashbox friends is a stunning mascara Photo Op Eye Brightening Mascara, $55. Now, I am super fussy about mascaras. I like thickness, length, curl, no flaking and a formula that conditions the lashes – this does it all and more. Developed with a unique Blue Prism Technology – a blend of Micas, Titanium and Blue Pigment – these subtle blue undertones in this innovative black shade
help to accentuate eyes and make them appear brighter. It thickens the lashes and gives a lovely curl that makes the eyes pop. What’s more, the mascara repairs broken bonds within lashes and restores suppleness, so lashes stay naturally longer. This mascara has quickly seen me toss out all the others in my collection – it’s that good.
