Based off of swatches, I had high hopes for the Smashbox Limitless Eye Liner… but it just wasn’t a love for me. And, based off of the reviews I read, I’m pretty much alone with my feelings.
What Sephora says about Smashbox Limitless Eye Liner:
What it is:
A waterproof, long-wearing eye pencil that provides bold color that won’t smudge or budge for up to eight hours.
What it does:
This waterproof, long-wearing eye pencil provides bold color that won’t smudge or budge for up to eight hours. The creamy, easy-to-apply formula contains vitamin E and jojoba oil to moisturize and protect. The cap houses a unique built-in sharpener—so you’ll always have the most precise application.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
I chose the shade Indigo Ink (matte dark blue) because I have some weird obsession with navy liners, I see one and I need to buy it. It swatched beautifully in store and immediately went in my “yes” pile.
The color is pretty much the only pro I have with this liner. I thought it was really dry and skipped when I was applying to my upper lid. It’s waterproof so it set fast. Too fast to even smudge and try to make it look a little presentable. It looks okay in the pic below because of the angle, but to wear this liner in public I had to swipe shimmery shadow over-top … like a makeup magician. It lines well on the waterline but doesn’t last more than an hour there (which is normal, it’s hard to get a liner to stay all day there).
The second time I tried to use this pencil I thought maybe it was just dry because it needed sharpened and refreshed but I was wrong. Conveniently, this liner also comes with a pencil sharpener on the end. It is small and hard to turn and also does not sharpen the pencil for crap. It actually kind of ruined it.
