Love it: Smashbox Love Me Paint Pen Eye Liner


The Spring 2013 collection from Smashbox Cosmetics certainly got my attention, and as an absolute freak for liquid eyeliner I got very excited about one of its star products (pictured).
The small-but-perfectly formed offering collection - called Love Me - is a collaboration with artist Curtis Kulig and thus very reminiscent of his style of street art, whilst still staying totally true to Smashbox. Needless to say, it is also very, very cool. The collection consists of two eye shadow palettes that have Love Me inserts that lift up, a blush, two lipsticks, two lipglosses and the oversized liquid eyeliner that I fell in love with on sight.
Based on Kulig’s signature paint pen, it is a liquid liner with a beautifully matte finish, which makes it a must for creating edgier, statement-making eye looks. Despite its size it is seriously easy to use; and the fact that it is densely pigmented means that it is quick to apply too - one swipe over each lid and you’re well on your way to some high drama of the sultry variety.
For a fine line use just the tip of the pen, or for a thicker line, lay the pen on its side and gently glide along the lashline. The more pressure applied, the thicker the line you will achieve. Too easy!
Now I’m dying to try the collection’s beautiful, warm pink lipstick known as Tempt Me, which I reckon would be the perfect match for a geometric eye. Love it.
