Smeary Eyed Can Be Your New Name
When it comes to having products which create a beautiful natural style look, Smashbox is one of the best. They have lots of products which contribute to that *put together* look that so many people crave, without looking like you have a bunch of makeup on. **Product Details** One of the items I have had the chance to own is the Smashbox Cream Eyeliner Palette. With colors from lavender to purple, green, navy, brown, gold, and silver (and a few more thrown in too), this palette offers a good selection of cream eyeliners. The flip top case is hinged and allows you to see the eyeliner colors only when lifted- the top is not clear. there are 10 liner colors in the palette and a mini brush. Colors are highly pigmented and easy to spread on the skin. **Product Performance** On the one hand, these cream eyeliners are extremely pigmented and very deep in color. The texture is very creamy- like butter and honey mixed almost. They settle onto the skin beautifully and do make a lovely line. Unfortunately, these do not set on the skin like MAC Fluidlines or Maybelline Color Tattoos do. They simply melt into the skin and sit there. That means that if you accidentally rub them, you will have a smear. I also use most of my gel liners as cream eyeshadow. I can do this with these as well and the colors sheer out well, but they tend to get patchy. Also, because they move around so easily, they wear off quickly. **The Bottom Line** Smashbox Cream Eyeliner Palette is nice in theory, but in practice it just does not live up to my expectations. Color does not set on the skin, is easily smeared, and fades or ghosts up onto eyes quickly. I just don't find them useful and rarely use the palette for anything, as I can not find anything it is useful for!
