Swatches and (quick) Review: Barbie Loves Stila Smudge Pots



Barbie loves Stila and I can definitely see why! These are the first Smudge Pots I've tried and I think they're wonderful. Great color payoff and GREAT staying power. These Smudge Pots are classified as eyeliners more so than bases but can be used as both. As a base, these are much like MAC Paintpots, but as eyeliners they are better than MAC Fluidline as they do not budge. I've actually applied them on my hand and tried rubbing them away...using my hand, nothing happened...using a washcloth and water, still nothing happened. I actually had to use my makeup remover to get them to come off.

PROS:
Gorgeous colors
Pigmented
Smooth and easy to apply
Outstanding lasting power
Packaging...it's adorable! Barbie's eye blinks (it's a hologram)

CONS:
Though I personally don't have any cons of this product, I have heard some people say that they flake on them.

  8. They are definitely gorgeous! Rai...have you tried ordering them from online? I know when I bought them at Ulta, there was only 1 of each color left.

    As for building the colors, I didn't have to build up the black at all. But the other 2, I did two layers.
