Apologise for not posting on my blog yesterday, it has been a hectic week! I’m back with a review for you today though – I’ll be taking a look at the Smashbox Waterproof Shadow Liner in Charcoal!
I am a huge eyeliner fan, as many of you know, and have been looking forward to trying this out for ages. The eyeliner is double ended…
One end is the thick, chunky charcoal liner – it is much larger than a standard pencil eyeliner, but then again is meant to be more of a shadow-style liner:
And the other end is a large sponge smudger, which I also love. There’s nothing better than being able to do your entire eyeliner look with just one product, so this is perfect for me.
I first applied the liner to my waterlines, and then lined my upper and lower lashlines. It took a couple of attempts to get the liner to stay on the waterlines, but when it did it looked fabulous.
It is definitely more of a charcoal than a pure black shade ,and also contains a hint of glitter. This is perfect for the party season coming up, and looks less severe than my usual black liner. It was also VERY easy to blend out with the smudge sponge, which is essential.
Here is my finished look, complete with a dash of mascara:
I will absolutely be using this eyeliner again for party looks – I think it would look amazing with a dash of hot pink somewhere in there too. If you wanted to, you could apply the liner all over the lid and smudge out for a complete eyeshadow look.
The liner retails for £17 from Boots, and although that is quite pricey it will last for a very long time. I barely made a dent in the tip using it to create the look above!
