Smashbox has come up with a lot of value sets as part of their holiday 2010 wish collection. One such, is the Wish for the Perfect Pencils set. The set contains four colors of travel-size eye pencils.
- Onyx - Jet Black
- Orchid - Dark Purple
- 14k - Soft Metallic Gold
- Graphite - Metallic Grey
The pencils are quite small in size. They are pretty effortless to apply and the formula is quite creamy. However, they are not long lasting and smudge with ease. Smashbox claims they stay on for a good 8 hours, but I highly doubt that.
Here are a few swatches.The first picture is taken without flash and the next one with flash.
Top to Bottom : Onyx, 14k, Graphite and Orchid.
The colors are quite pigmented and well worth the $16 price tag.A great travel-friendly set for people who are on the go and a great gift option too! Would have been better if only they had better staying power *sigh*.
Graphite seems to be my favourite amongst the four shades.Available at Sephora and online at Smashbox.com
I am still not sure if I wanna get these.What about you?Do you plan to get this or any other holiday sets from Smashbox this year? Are you loving these shades? I'd love to know!
