Review: Smashbox Girls on Film Cream Eye Liner in Sepia

Girls on Film Colour Collection launched recently as part of Smashbox cosmetics new season colour collection. To read more about the new Girls on Film Colour Collection click here.

I was given the opportunity to trial the Girls on Film Cream Eye Liner Travel Brush Set in Sepia and I have to say, the formulation of the cream liner has really impressed me.

I've used cream liners in the past and after trying Smashbox's cream liner, I am amazed about the lasting power of this liner. Sepia is a beautiful brown shade with miniscule gold pearl shimmers. These gold pearl shimmers look VERY subtle and only noticeable upon close inspection. This liner is VERY pigmented and glides on incredibly smooth, so these  are great qualities in this cream liner.. Being a cream liner, it did take a few minutes to completely dry. You could create different levels of intensity with this cream liner, you could create gentle smudge the liner and achieve a soft focus look or apply a heavy hand to define and make your eyes look bold. I found that the cream liner is easy to apply and the intensity of the shade is buildable. 

The travel size Smashbox eyeliner brush included in this set is approximately 14.5 cm long. The full size Smashbox Cream Eyeliner brush No. 9 has white bristles. The travel sized cream eyeliner brush works very well and is not flimsy or scratchy at all. It's important that you should apply a 'stamping' motion rather than sweep the brush, that way you would avoid scratching the delicate eye area and enable a smooth application. I really love the fact that the bristles are packed tight and allows a precise application. You could use this brush to apply the cream eye liner in many ways. Here are a few swatches of Girls on Film Cream Eye Liner in Sepia using the eyeliner brush.

Ingredients List
Smashbox Cream Liner in Sepia has already replaced my regular MAC Blacktrack gel liner for a day time look as the Sepia shade provides a softer tone, yet still has the characteristics of defining the eyes.

I would definitely consider trying this limited edition Smashbox Cream Eye Liner with Travel sized brush from the Girls on Film Colour Collection as it offers precision and definition to the eyes with the use of the great quality Smashbox cream eye liner brush.

Girls on Film Cream Eye Liner Travel Brush Set is available in Blacklight (black with blue pearl) and Sepia (midnight brown with gold pearl) at a price of A$39.95 ea.

Smashbox Girls on Film Colour Collection is available exclusively at KIT cosmetics and Mecca Maxima stores in Australia.
