*BLOGMAS 17th* SMASHBOX *HAUL* Kohl Eyeliners, Eyeshadow Trio & Shadow Eyeliners.

Smashbox Cosmetics Haul Waterproof kohl eyeliner and eyeshadow trio
I was Christmas shopping with my bff last week and although I actually managed to buy a few presents (I only have a few more to go until I'm completely done) I also managed to buy something for myself;)
I couldn't pass the Smashbox counter without having a look, and having a look will probably result in me buying something.
Since I've been over the moon satisfied with my Smokebox eyeshadow palette I was thinking about getting another one. The Softbox is the same just with neutrals and I had my eyes on that one.
Even though I have a lot of neutrals I am willing to throw them away (wouldn't actually do this) for the sake of some new ones from Smashbox because I just love their eyeshadows!

I went a little crazy on the eye liners, I simply don't own too many colored eyeliners and I decided to get better at using them. I wear a lot of neutral shadows and I figured it could be fun to spice it up with some colored liners :)

The Softbox is about $50, and the Trio is about $35 - which is $15 difference.
The Softbox has six shadows, it's a nice sized compact with a huge mirror and a double brush.
SO I was thinking no way am I gonna pay $35 for 3 shadows in a tiny compact without even a mirror. I'd rather pay $15 extra for the big palette.

BUT THEN my eyes landed on the trio with the green color, and I was instantly in love.
Not necessarily in love, rather obsessed I am willing to admit.
My world stopped and I couldn't imagine my life without it.

I was simply thinking I need this. I'll come back for the Softbox later.

Then I had my eyes on some eyeliners.
I think the "Always Sharp Kohl Liners" are new, and what really upset me was that their collection wasn't complete. They were missing like to two must-have colors. Black and a beautiful purple!
And it wasn't like they were sold out, they simply haven't got them. I don't know why, and all the posters were showing those two colors and they were missing from their showcase box on the counter. I've also been to several Smashbox counters and it was the same everywhere..Hmm..

I simply chose the nude eyeliner because it's a must have, and my Rimmel Scandal Eyes is almost gone. I also like the idea of always sharp. There's nothing more painful putting liner on your water line with an eye pencil with rough edges! 

Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner in the color Penny Lane:

This is a beautiful color and since they green was too green and the blu was too dark, and they didn't have the purple - I choose this which is a nice brown with some shimmer in it:) Nice for your water line as it's less harsh than a black :)

Smashbox Waterproof Shadow Liner in the color Lapis:

I was determined to get more from the Always Sharp Kohl Liner collection, but since they didn't have either black or purple and the blue was too dark and the green wasn't a nice green for me - I suddenly saw this collection at the bottom of the counter.

This blue was such a nice color and it's a lot more bright and perfect for when you want a hint of color :)

Smashbox Waterproof Shadow Liner in the color Shimmering Ivy:

I couldn't let this green go as it goes perfectly with the eyeshadow that I bought! :)

This time I've actually been so effective that I did all the swatches and everything at the same time so I have swatches and review posts on all products ready right away! 
I won't post them all on the same day though as that's gonna get a bit boring, but new posts are ready to go for the rest of this week :)
I've just done regular swatches, but I might try to do some makeup looks using them also :)

Are you a eye liner kind of gal?
