I love the color and shimmer of this liner, and the lasting power, but there are a couple of things that are problematic. First, the brush is a bit soft compared to other liquid liners, so it takes a bit more of an expert hand a patience, not good if you're in a hurry. Second, the shape of the bottle is round and wide at the bottom, so the product tends to pool to one side if the liner is on it's side, making it hard to load the brush as the container gets emptied. It looks adorable, but from a practical standpoint, I think there is too much product wasted because of the shape of the container. I also think the liner dries out more quickly because the container seems to hold a lot of air. I said I'd purchase again, just because of the color but the bottle might be a deal breaker next time.
This is a gorgeous color, although I wish it was just a little bit darker because it tends to blend into my eyeshadow sometimes depending on the look I'm doing. That said, I do have problems controlling the brush - probably just because I'm still not that great with liquid liner, having mostly used gel or pencil until now. Hopefully I get the hang of this soon! I probably won't buy this again though, because it *is* quite expensive, and like I said, I'm still having problems with the brush, so I don't get nearly as much use as I could be getting out of it.
It's soooo hot where I live, not humid so much, but baking heat that makes you sweat, where you get roasted to a turn. Anyhow, this stuff does NOT MOVE! Amazing really. I do not wear mascara for that will melt off my lashes and I not like waterproof mascara, so I just use Smog on my lids, eyeliner, and I love it. I guess for my coloring and eye shape (and lucky with a thick swatch of long lashes) I don't need anything else and the metallic hint of this liner does just enough to call attention to my eyes and I look fully made up.
I love it and plan on purchasing other colors. I am a high school teacher and am subjected to the harsh criticism of my students on a daily basis. The girls always want to know my products, they love them and I do not feel over made up trying to look like something I am not, YOUNG....hahaha...it's great stuff. Try it!
I like this color for my hazel eyes. The gold sparkles in it compliment their color. I don't feel it made them pop, but still nice however.
Sometimes I put the liner on to get the cat-eye look, with the liner winged out on the sides. But the liner in the crease of my eyelid rubs off. The glitter does seem to fall a bit onto my face after the liner dries. The liner is also not waterproof, which sucks.
But besides that, it lasts all day for me without flaking off (unless I've layered the liner too much trying to fix mistakes). And works pretty good on my slightly oily lids. No smudging.
This is a quality liquid liner. Beautiful color, long wearing. Just not too sure about the packaging, wondering if I'll be able to get all the product out.
I've already purchased 2 of these liners in Perversion and Ecstasy and was very happy with the results of those two, so I decided to buy Smog. It's a beautiful olive color but when it dries it turns into more of a brown liner. Very happy with the product! It will look great with UD's matte shadow in Naked :) p.s. it dries super quickly!
I adore everything about this liquid liner. The color is unique and really flattering, the brush offers a lot of precision, and the formula is pretty long-lasting. There's nothing more that I can say about this other than it's a HG for me.
I scored this @ Sephora for $8 so I had to get it...the color is kind of a deep olive with a hint of gold in it....it's dark but not too dark..it's a really pretty color...I like the bottle and the brush...very soft and the formula is easy to apply...
Hmmm smog is an olive green liquid eyeliner. I would say its quite shimmery, a little olive green, a little brown, bronze. Hard to describe but its nice. If i were to compare this to UD 24/7 eyeliner in stash, I would say smog is more intense cos its a liquid liner, more brown or bronze. Hate the packaging which looks as if I am gonna have lots of wastage at the bottom of the pot. Hate the set up of the brush cos it looks yucky to swipe excess liner at the side of the pot and also hate the brush. I managed to solve this problem by using my regular angled liner brush (swipe my angled liner brush against the provided UD liner brush for application) Bcos of this I am gonna deduct 1 lippie else its 5 :) I will still repurchase although the packaging sucks. Love the colour
I have been in love with this liner for some time. The color is wonderful, it works so well with a variety of looks. I have very pale skin and blue eyes and this is a great color for me, but I'd say it would also be equally fabulous on green eyes and brown eyes because of the golden shimmer. Many brands of liquid liner have crappy brushes, but this one is nice and stiff and it's the perfect width. I love this liner and I want the whole set.
