Let's start with, what is a smudge pot?
A gel eyeliner and shadow combo that is soft and pliable. An alternative to eyeliner.
Why I'm blogging about them?
They take the prize for achieving sexy eyes, and I think every woman should carry one in her make-up bag!
Late last week I put the princess peach in her Baby Bjorn, grabbed Mr. Energy by the hand and we headed downtown in search of a little mommy gratification and a smudge pot (actually, the smudge pot was only one among a many other items I was in search of.) So naturally I headed here first...
And I tried on just about every smudge pot produced, by every line Sephora carries, in I don't remember how many different shades.
Many of the pots I tried on would be great to wear on a night out on the town but I was looking for something a little more versatile. Something I can wear on the playground that screams, "That momma has got it going on" well maybe not all that but I definitely want to look pulled together and not like I spent a whole lot of time putting my face on either.
So here is a quick recap on what I tried:
Jet set waterproof liner.
Kind of like bare minerals, in that you have to add a little water to the tip of your brush and then apply. Too thick, not what I was looking for, remember I said smudge pot!
Definitely a smudge pot. Creamer. Came in the shade I was searching for but with much too much shimmer for daytime wear.
Stila Smudge Pot.
but not what I was looking for either. I'm extremely particular might I add, and I could not find a shade that pleased me quite enough.
Until I tried this one...
Sephora Collection Waterproof.
by Sephora, go figure. It was by far my favorite! Also, the cheaper of the bunch but not the reason I bought it. It was extremely pliable, came in a shade I loved, and it looked great on. Btw, "shout out" to Mr. Energy who was such a sport and followed me around the store with the make-up remover bottle and cotton pads. I love that kid!
I didn't buy it in cafe or black (remember I said kiddies, playground, daytime) Can you guess what shade?
And, if you don't already own one, or two, I suggest you go out and find your fav!
