“ Brand: Smashbox / Type: Eyeliners / Suitable for: Eye / waterproof: yes „
I came across this eyeliner a few years ago watching QVC.co.uk. I had never heard of Smashbox as it is a brand from the United States of America. I was hesitant to order as sometimes products look good on TV but can be a disappointment when you get them. Boy am I glad I took the chance with this eyeliner!
When it arrived I was a bit unsure as the pot is quite small but I soon realised that a little goes a long way and the pot lasts for absolute ages.
There are many colours of eyeliner I have tried in the Smashbox range but this one (Hollywood) is the most flattering I have found. Hollywood is a shimmery bronze colour and when applied really opens up my eyes without the harshness of a black eye liner.
The liner is a shadow as well so I can line my eyes and then blend over the eye lid for a smoked out look. The liner is waterproof (perfect for those emotional days!), and is a gel consistency which dries in 60 seconds. You can be sure that this liner will not budge all day once it dries.
I was pleasantly surprised to find the application was so easy as I have struggled with getting a straight line when using eye liners in the past. Not a problem with this one, it glides on effortlessly every time. I use a sweeping motion to apply but you can step in across close to the lash if you prefer. Either way is easy and the results are always professional looking. Well I suppose it's the quality of the product which helps achieve perfect results and this eye liner is certainly a quality product.
I use a liner brush which I did not pay that much for but Smashbox brushes are available to buy on their websites or quite a few Boots stores across the UK. I always buy mine from Amazon.co.uk because I find they are the most competitively priced here.
Overall, this is one item in my makeup bag that I could not do without. Even on "no makeup" days I can slip on my eye liner with a sweep of mascara and I look human again. I can highly recommend this product.
