Smashbox Double Exposure Palette
This innovative eye palette features coated pigments formulated with coating technology to create multiple effects when wet, allowing the shadows to transform in one of four ways—allowing these 14 shadows to become 28 shades in just one palette. When wet, these colors amp up vibrancy, become deeper, turn metallic, or create sparkle for endless, customizable eye looks.
Apply eye shadows with the foolproof, double-ended brush. The domed in brush absorbs just the right amount of water for impactful color while the angled side creates a precise line when wet, a diffused line when dry. Then elevate looks for your eye shape with the #SHAPEMATTERS insert, featuring how-to’s for six shapes. Top off your looks with the included, Full Exposure Mascara, in a bonus, five-week supply.
Double Exposure Palette ($52.00)
Availability: Now at Sephora for VIB Rouges (presumably will open to all in the next couple of weeks)
Smashbox 3D Orchid Always Sharp 3D Liner
Smashbox Always Sharp Liner ($20.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a “waterproof kohl eyeliner that glides on and self-sharpens every time you twist the cap off.” There’s also a 3D formula, which as far as I can tell, differs primarily by the inclusion of shimmer. The original (or regular) formula is waterline safe as well. The self-sharpening mechanism is great for anyone who needs more precision when using their pencil eyeliner, and it definitely works! The consistency of the pencils was soft enough that it glided on without tugging on the lash line. The three shades I tried yielded more opaque color coverage in a couple of layers. The formula noticeably faded and thinned out after six to seven hours, and the teal shade migrated into the outer edge of my lash line, so wear was less than ideal. It seemed waterproof, as it didn’t run or smudge when it came into contact with water.
Smashbox 3D Orchid Always Sharp 3D Liner ($20.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “black with pink pearl.” It’s a warm-toned black with violet sparkle and shimmer. It was semi-sheer in a single stroke and buildable to semi-opaque color. This shade wore well for seven hours on me. Marc Jacobs Beauty (Plum)age (60) (P, $25.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Empire (P, $19.00) is less sparkly. Urban Decay Delinquent (P, $19.00) has finer sparkle. MAC Designer Purple (P, $15.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
Smashbox Cabana Always Sharp Liner ($20.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “green.” It’s a green-leaning teal with a subtle, pearly sheen. It had good pigmentation in one pass, and it was fully opaque after two layers. This shade wore well for seven hours but migrated and gathered in my outer corner. Sephora Collection Good Mood (P, $9.00) is darker. Make Up For Ever #52L (LE, $19.00) is similar. MAC Blue Noon (LE, $16.00) is slightly bluer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
Smashbox Penny Lane Always Sharp Liner ($20.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “brown with shimmer.” It’s a dark, subtly warm-toned brown with gold and bronze shimmer. It had fairly good color payoff in a single stroke, and it was buildable to mostly opaque color after two layers. This shade wore well for almost eight hours on me and didn’t migrate. Marc Jacobs Beauty Brown(out) (54) (P, $25.00) is warmer. Buxom Come Over (P, $17.00) is lighter. MAC Deliciously Rich (LE, $16.00) is a gel eyeliner. Urban Decay Hustle (LE, $19.00) is slightly warmer. Urban Decay Corrupt (P, $19.00) is darker. MAC Lord It Up (P, $15.00) is slightly darker. Burberry Midnight Brown (P, $27.00) is very similar.

Smashbox The Santigolden Age by Santigold Collection for Summer 2014
For this exclusive collection, Santigold plays with the notion of approaching the post-2012 Golden Age – an age where the earth as we know it ceases to exist, revitalizing itself and morphing into its own beautifully balanced, utopic mirror image. This is a world where the earth, stars, humans, aliens and all co-exist harmoniously.
She’s partnered with Smashbox to create this vivid and playful color range, influenced by her strong creative sense. Already known for her mix-and-match sensibility, Santi is encouraging her collage style with this collection. From the themed, shade names to the one-of-a-kind ring design, she’s blended her style, hand-crafted artwork, fashion sense and love of color to create this exciting summer line.
