Stay-Put Liner: Smashbox Jet Set Waterproof Eye Liner
Smashbox Navy Blue Jet Set Waterproof Eye Liner ($22.00) is a gel eye liner that goes on creamy and then dries after about a minute. I like that they designed it to stay blendable (wet/creamy) for a minute before it dries to a “smudge-proof, budge-proof finish that lasts all day.” It does, in fact, stay on all day without smudging or budging or migrating onto places it shouldn’t be. It’s available in five shades: Bronze, Dark Brown, Midnight Black, Midnight Purple, and Navy Blue.
I’d definitely love to see Smashbox introduce more shades into their line-up — some fun shades would be awesome to see, but it is still nice tot have five easy, wearable shades. I’ve only tried Navy Blue myself, but I love the soft bluish silver laced in the dark navy base shade. Looks great even with a neutral look on the upper lash line! The pot feels extremely tiny, but I don’t see myself going through this product quickly nonetheless.
- Product: 9/10
- Value: 8/10
- Ease of Use: 8/10
- Packaging: 7/10
Recommendation: The product itself is fantastic, and even though the container is tiny, you don’t need much for an application, so one container will last you quite awhile. I will say that I’d prefer a little more bulk to the packaging to make it easier to hold onto, less likely to be lost (since I lose everything), and all that. Because it stays wet for longer, you have more time to work and don’t have to worry about drag.
