I was wondering what you guys thought about the Smashbox line? I have one eyeshadow so far. There's a bunch on ebay that seems to go for cheap and aren't bidding wars like mac.

Hey Liz! Is the one e/s you have the one i sent you? I really liked the texture of the e/s & it did last on my lids, it was just the colour that didn't work for me so that's why i swapped it. So IMO i like Smashbox e/s! I dont own anything else by Smashbox though so i cant comment on the rest of the line. I know a lot of people swear by their primer though

I have a few Smashbox pieces, mainly from QVC kits.

E/s - do have a nice texture, but i find them a bit too shimmery.

Cream eyeliners - were my fave, until i got the MAC fluidlines!

Primer - is really nice and keeps my makeup in place all day.

Mascara - is the best one i've tried so far.

Brushes - fab quality

Lipglosses - not keen on. Find them too sticky.

Um... that's all i can think of! Hope this helps!

What I've used of SB, I really like. I have e/s, cream e/s (love it-I use as a liner), glosses and l/s. I don't have alot but I definitely want more of their stuff. IMO, the glosses weren't sticky.

I have their Lip Brilliance palette in Sky Box. Sadly, I NEVER use it. The colors are nice but it's a super-messy palette; they are sticky and also have a tendency to end up on teeth. I have never tried any of their other products though.

Smashbox has really nice products. I have the lash primer and it works fine when I remember to use it
I know Tracey likes this line too so I am sure she'll add her opinions

I hear the primer is really great my aunt uses it and swears by it,she says qvc has great kits that they put together.I think the makers of smashbow are the grandsons of the maker of max factor,so they grew up learning about makeup.

the primer worked WONDERS for me, but dried out not even a week later!!! i read reviews and a lot of them said the same.

i'm waiting on a lipstick called nude in a swap, which i tried at sephora and fell in love!

i have the focal point mascara and it's a good, basic mascara, but it flakes a little.

Smashbox is an amazing line & highly underrated. Blush, e/s, l/s & l/g quality are much better than MAC, IMO. I've bought stuff from QVC & Sephora & couldn't be happier w/their line.

I like working with their eyeshadows and alot of their other eye products. I don't like the mascaras, but I do like the lash primer. The only thing about it is that I've heard it dries fast. I usually go through alot of primer though , so I never noticed that. I don't like the texture of any of the lip products...too tacky for me.

I don't think it's one of the better lines, but it is ok.

I have an eyeshadow trio and a lipgloss and I really like them. I do agree with Gail that it seems like the line is severely underrated. I think their shadows have a lot of pigment.

I have loads of SB and I have to say that I really like that line. I agree w/Gail that SB is highly underrated. Their shadows are terrific and I totally love the makeup brushes. I have a whole set of those and couldn't be happier. I dont particularly like the l/g, but that is the only thing in the line that I dont care for.

I got some smashbox lip glosses and shadows from a fabulous swapper. I haven't really used them much because they aren't my colors, but I think they are really good products and would love to try more of the line! The shadows go on so smoothly and are very highliy pigmented.

I have the cream eyeliner palette... it's AWESOME!!! Besides that, all I have is a sample of the primer, and it seems to work really nice! Give a great smooth finish. I know a lot of people that use their other products, and they love them!

Janelle, I've been eyeing that palette on the internet! I know I'd love it too.
Do you use all of them?
