Packaging

Smashbox’s Untamed Collection is their summer launch featuring six new products, plus four shades of their Waterproof Shadow/Liner Duos. They launched two glosses, two eyeshadow/liner trios, creamy cheek color, and a brightening pencil.

I tested out the Untamed Waterproof Shadow Liner Trio in Savage ($29.00), which features a soft, beigey-pink, deeper olive green, and a warm, shimmery brown. They’re all creamy shadows designed to use as liners, bases, or eyeshadows. They are waterproof, therefore crease-proof, too. Just be sure to prepare yourself for the size of this product, because each part of the trio is fairly small. It’s not necessarily a bad value, it’s just surprising.

Terracotta Creamy Cheek Color ($24.00) is a soft, fleshy reddish-brown color that goes on sheer and creamy. It’s easy to blend, and it looks very natural on the face. It’s definitely not an overwhelming color, and it is a nice alternative to bronzer, too.

I also tried Untamed Lip Gloss in Raw ($18.00), which is described as a deep red. I’d have to say it’s more like a semi-sheer reddish brown, over a “deep red.” I really thought I’d like this shade, but it’s not as red as I was hoping for. It looks better on my lips than I expected it, too, though, because it goes on fairly sheer and just gives my lips more of a brownish-red tint.
