Review- Smashbox Jet Set Palette

Adorn eyes with four opulent shades of budge-proof metallic liner. This best-selling waterproof formula is housed in a mirrored airtight compact with a mini arced liner brush for flawless application. Includes 3 new shades and our best-selling deep black shade. Our innovative gel-based liner stays blendable for 60 seconds then dries to a smudge-proof, budge-proof finish that lasts all day. JET SET is perfect for lining the inner rim of the eye or as a stay-put traditional liner. A must-have for smoky eyes. $48

Smashbox is contemporaries with some of the most popular companies around--MAC, Makeup Forever and the like. They have added a real awareness to the consumer makeup market to what the pros use and swear by. This integrity elevates the whole consciousness of makeup, IMO. I think it's because of their ethos that the products they manufacture are of such a high quality. The Jet Set palette is filled with four rich gel eyeliners in one easy to store (not to mention gorgeous!) case. In keeping with their Fall '09 line inspired by the Showtime series The Tudors, there are two stately traditional colors in black and chocolate brown and two ostentatious metallics in gold and bronze. The set comes with an angled brush which makes the application artful yet foolproof. I rushed through my first use of the gold color and ran out of the door without any powder set yet the color stayed just fine. The second time I pulled this kit out, I blended the chocolate and the bronze by layering them on top of each other. Three total strangers told me my eyes were a pretty color that day. I'm just saying. The thing about gel formulated eyeliners is that the technology allows for a smooth application followed by the liner drying on its own once applied. This is great for when you want a precise line that lasts and lasts and color-wise looks stunning. Que rico! Now where's Jonathan Rhys Meyers?
