tarte smolderEYES Amazonian clay waterproof liner collection Holiday 2011


tarte really hit it out of the ballpark with their holiday collections this year.  Instead of simply offering a couple of limited edition colors, they offered some seriously excellent value sets.
The smolderEYES collection features six chubby liner/shadow pencils in a long-lasting formula for $39, breaking down to $6.50 each.  That's drugstore territory for price.  The formula is smooth, creamy, and highly pigmented and while it doesn't quite make it through to 12 hours, it comes pretty close.  By the end of that time it's mostly there, just worn away in a couple of spots.  Not bad!
It even comes with a sharpener, a very nice touch.


Golden beige, moss, and smoke I apply directly either as a thick liner or as shadow.  The darker three (violet, espresso, and silver black) I apply with a liner brush for a thinner line.
