What’s the secret to the Smashbox Waterproof Limitless Liquid Liner Pen’s ($22) water repelling powers? Could it be the seasoning perhaps?
Unless I missed the makeup challenge on Top Chef this season, the inclusion of sea salt in the formula must have been a Smashbox idea. Does it help the product work? I’m not sure, but I do see that the company’s Limitless Eye Liner and their bestselling Jet Set Waterproof Eye Liner are 100% sea salt-free.
Even if the spice is purely cosmetic (weird!), this bad boy repels water and sweat like a champ. The other day I drew the Black shade along my upper lash line before hopping on the treadmill, and roughly one bucket of perspiration later, it still looked good with nary a smudge.
“Create looks from softly subtle to gorgeously glam with this long wearing liquid liner pen. Unlike other liners, the precision tip pen provides smooth and controlled application every time.”
Fans of MAC’s Penultimate Liner might like the firm felt tip, which is stiff to the touch, but I have a hard time drawing clean, crisp lines with it. I prefer the more flexible tip of liners like LORAC Front of the Liner Pro.
If you’re a fan of liquid liners with a stiff felt tip, and you need heavy duty waterproofing power, Smashbox Limitless Liquid Liner might be your next eyeliner crush. Oh, I almost forgot — it’s also cruelty-free.
