Last week I placed an order with Smashbox.com. I got the Jet Set eyeliner in Teal, a New color.
I was really looking forward to getting it. I placed the order on Thursday and it came Saturday.
When I opened it my first thought was to make sure they sent the right color. I did check, it was the right color, but where was the beautiful color I saw online?
This just looked blue to me. Still pretty but not the color I was expecting.
Online at Smashbox.com it looks like it has more green in it.
I decided to google the color Teal. I found out that Teal is suppose to have more blue in it than green. I always thought it was the other way around.
Still I was expecting it to look as it does online with a bit more green to it.
I am going to keep it anyways because it is a pretty color either way.
The consistency of this is really dry. I have the purple Jet Set and that one is really dry too. I always thought that I had just gotten a bad one, but this Teal color is the same. It is dry and almost hard to work with. I got some on my MAC 266 brush and was applying to my upper lash line and mid way through the product on the brush was completely dry.
So it's dry to begin with and even dryer when u start working with it. I was not too happy about that.
Smashbox claims This innovative gel-based waterproof liner stays blendable for 60 seconds then dries to a smudge-proof, budge-proof finish that lasts all day.
I wore it yesterday and I had no problems with it smudging or fading all day. So even though the consistency is iffy it does last all day.
Since it was my Birthday and I'm signed up for their rewards program I got this free gift in the tin.
The Free Birthday Gift included:
And a Shadow and liner trio
The other two samples they offer with every order. I chose a tinted moisturizer and like I mentioned since I'm signed up for their rewards program I got an extra sample which was the Lash DNA Mascara.
I have been wanting to try both of these mascaras so this is great! I might do reviews on them soon. What do you think, should I review them?
If you haven't signed up for their rewards program you should! You can do so by clicking here http://www.smashbox.com/Pretty-Points-Registration
Overall the eyeliner is ok. I think the consistency needs some improvement. There are gel liners that are just as long lasting but are still creamy and smooth. If you read my blog you know Stila Smudge Pots are my FAVORITE gel liners but they don't have a teal Smudge Pot, therefore I ordered the Jet Set.
Stila can you Pretty Please make a teal Smudge Pot. :D
If I was going to rate this on a scale from 1 to 10, 10 being the best, I would give it a 7.
I'll keep this one and make it work.
Have you tried Jet Set? Do you like it? Was it as drying for you as it was for me? Let me know in the comments.
