So pretty and colorful! The packaging was designed in collaboration with the artist Yago Hortal, a young, breakthrough painter from Barcelona.
Today I'll tell you more about Art.Love.Color Lashes*, the set on the left. I know the one on the right looks very intriguing but it does contain a lot of gorgeous eyeshadows and blushes and I need some time to take good pictures of the shades to do their beauty justice.
The set for the lashes contains a full size Full Exposure Mascara, a large sample size Smashbox Limitless Eye Liner (0.8g) and a large sample size Photo Finish Hydrating Under Eye Primer (5ml).

Smashbox Master Class Palette on my lids
The Smashbox Limitless Eye Liner in Onyx is a deep black eyeliner. It is very soft and glides on beautifully. I don't have oily lids but this eyeliner does transfer to my upper lid during the day even if I'm wearing a primer. It's sad because it's so easy to apply, the colour is a perfect black and you can create a softer smudged look with it if you want.
The last product in the set is the Photo Finish Hydrating Under Eye Primer, a primer to make your concealer stay in place during the day. This product promises quite a lot: It's hydrating, reduces dark circles and puffiness, it's soothing, adds radiance and brightness and it fights wrinkles and fine lines. Well, I'm happy if it reduces the appearance of dark circles and hydrates my under eye area. Instead of going through a check list of all the mentioned benefits I'll just tell you what it does in my opinion. The product is transparent but as soon as I applied it, my under eye area looked illuminated and brighter. It felt like it added some hydration to my skin but not enough to skip eye cream if your skin is as dry as mine during winter. My concealer blended in as seamlessly as usual but my dark circles were less visible. Especially on pictures, which is the strength of Smashbox Cosmetics anyway. I couldn't notice any difference in the lasting power of my concealer but it always stays on the whole day, so there's nothing to improve. All in all this is a lovely product, I never felt the need of an under eye primer but now that I have this one I'll sure use it often.
The holiday collection is available from mid October at Marionnaud.
What do you think of this collection? Especially of the colorful packaging?
Have a great day!
