|Smashbox Waterproof Shadow Liner|
My friend Nancy was recently visiting from London. I promised her we could go to Sephora together so she could purchase some of my DivaDebbi Holy Grail Products...turns out Nancy had a couple of things to share with me too.
She had recently purchased a new Smashbox item, their Waterproof Shadow Liner in "Shimmering Ivy"and loved it. She insisted I try it. Naturally I needed very little prodding.
I haven't had much luck with thicker liners, they appear heavy and harsh on me. I also haven't had much luck figuring out how makeup artists use shadow to create the perfect smoky "cats eye". I have even studied You Tube videos to know avail.
Imagine my delight at trying Smashbox Waterproof Shadow Liner and finding with just a few strokes of the liner, I could use the "smudger" to create exactly the look I desired...in about 10 seconds. It is neither a liner nor a shadow, but a true hybrid of both. Of course I purchased it.
Shimmering Fig is a gorgeous, shimmering, greeney grey. It's creamy, but budge proof and lasts the entire day. It's genius! It comes in 6 shimmering shades and I am already coveting the beautiful shimmering navy above.
I always like to read what customers have to say about products. I find it amazing that so many women take the time to write them, but I'm glad they do. I checked both Sephora and Smashbox's website and the reviews, not surprisingly, on both sites were raves.
Here is how it is described on Sephora's website:
What it is:
A stay-put waterproof eye shadow and long-wearing liner in one.
What it does:
Give eyes soft definition wherever, whenever with this travel-friendly, mistake-proof shadow liner. The creamy waterproof formula glides on effortlessly for endless possibilities.
What else you need to know:
Smudge as a liner or blend as a shadow with included smudger for allover, longwearing color. Light-reflecting pearls give high-drama color and shimmer, while emollients create a silky, creamy texture.
It's a winner... Thanks Nanc!
