Welcome to another Smashbox review! Today’s I’m taking a closer look at two of the Smashbox Always Sharp 3D Liners that were kindly given to me last week – the shades I’m featuring are Galaxy and Orchid!
I love a good eyeliner, as many of you will know, but the thing that always gets me is keeping it sharp enough to create precise looks. I was so excited to learn about the awesome trick these gems perform – the lid actually sharpens the eyeliner as you twist it on and off! I love little extra features like that, and can confirm that it absolutely, totally works – your eyeliner is as sharp as ever after every use.
The shades themselves are simply beautiful – in fact, black and purple eyeliners are pretty much the only shades I ever really use. A match made in heaven! There is a little subtle sparkle to each, but it is very fine and more like a slight shimmer. I wondered whether that would cause the liner to be too reflective, and I put them to the test in a swatch!
I was thrilled to find that the lines from both were beautifully bold whilst containing just enough shine to make them eye-catching. They also did not budge, even through showering – I used proper eye make up remover to take the product off. Amazing!
I cannot WAIT to use these in a look – in fact, I’m filming a tutorial tomorrow and would love to try and incorporate both of them. I can just tell they’re going to become my go-to liners, and just knew Smashbox wouldn’t let me down!
The Smashbox Always Sharp 3D Liners retail for £16 each, and are available from larger Boots stores!
