Because Smashbox bestowed numbers upon the pans of powder eyeshadow and cream liner in their new limited edition Click You’re It kit, following the included tutorial card for the “Golden Smolder” look this afternoon was a little like painting by numbers.
But not exactly. It was like a weird class combining math and art…and I’ve always kinda struggled with one of those disciplines, LOL!
Click You’re It is part of Smashbox’s new Snappy Holidays collection
I got a little carried away with the olive green eyeshadow, No. 15 in the palette, so my version of the look turned out more green than gold. I like the outcome, but it definitely didn’t go exactly as I’d planned.
Since the shadows in the palette aren’t highly pigmented — I’d give ’em about a six on a scale of one to 10, with 10 being “amazingly pigmented” — I ended up having to do quite a bit of layering. And it was a good thing that I had some makeup wipes nearby, too, as I experienced some wicked fallout with the green shadow.

I dig this look, but I don’t know how often I’ll have the patience to swipe these shadows into submission… Maybe I’ll give ’em another try in a few days.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. As far as Tuesdays go, this one wasn’t bad. I hope yours went well. I was hoping to go to the movies tonight because to see Puss in Boots (hey, what can I say? — I’m a cat lady!), but El Hub got caught in traffic on the way home.
What did you have for din-din? Can I offer you a mini Snickers for dessert?
Seriously, I really need to get rid of these things before I devour them all!
