<strong>Hello lovely Luuuxers!</strong>
I have been obsessing over a lot of Sephora`s holiday sets lately! They`ve all been released so early, and there was no way I could wait until Christmas!! Number one on my holiday wish list was the <strong>Tarte Eye Catchers SmolderEYES and Skinny SmolderEYES Collector`s Set</strong>! I purchased this for $39, which is an excellent value considering that you are getting six high-quality, high-end products!
Included in this set are <strong>five SmolderEYES eyeliner/eyeshadow pencils and one Skinny SmolderEYES eyeliner</strong> The shades of SmolderEYES pencils include:
1. <strong>Ash Violet</strong> - a deep gray-purple
2. <strong>Rainforest Black</strong> - a blueish forest green (this color is SO unique!)
3. <strong>Champagne</strong> - self explanatory!
4. <strong>Gunmetal</strong> - A cool taupe/gray
5. <strong>Gold</strong> - A bronzey gold with a greenish tinge that is so hard to describe but SO beautiful on the eyes!
The Skinny SmolderEYES pencil is in <strong>Onyx</strong>, and it is a very rich black.
I`ve been playing around with these pencils for the past few days and I can honestly say this set is my favorite acquisition to my makeup collection in a long time! The neutral shades are stunning, and the green and purple colors are muted enough for daytime but really brighten up an otherwise normal look!
Each pencil comes with a smudger on the opposite side of the tip, and the set comes with a special pencil sharpener so you don`t have to worry about that! The point of the chubby pencils is still small enough that I can use them to line my upper lashline and lower waterline with no problem, but they are also big enough that I can use them as all-over shadows without it being a problem. They smudge really easily if you want them to, so you can create many versatile looks, but once these pencils set, they do NOT budge! Like their famous blushes that I like so much, these pencils have Amazonian Clay, so they balance out the skin and are very long-lasting.
<strong>Actually, to prove how well these stay on...after I swatched these shades on my hand in the above picture, I smudged them with my finger to try to rub them off...didn`t work. I washed my hands, twice. Didn`t come off. I did an entire sink of dishes. Didn`t come off. I even took a shower and there were still remnants of these pencils on my hands! (But don`t worry, they did come off really easily with makeup remover!)</strong>
Tarte is one of my favorite brands from Sephora, by far. If I had a thousand bucks, I would go crazy and buy all of their products! I like how the makeup has extra antioxidants and other good-for-you ingredients. I have very sensitive eyelids that experience itching when I use most eyeshadows, and so I`ve been interested in these liner/shadow pencils because they have Amazonian Clay and other natural ingredients that would probably be non-irritating!
So, to sum it all up: I. LOVE. THIS. SET. If you love these colors, I highly recommend running to your local Sephora to try them! This would also make a fantastic gift because these colors are universally flattering and would work with even the oiliest and most sensitive of eyelids and skin!
Next on my wishlist...the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush Collector`s Set!! I want it soooo badly!!
