Great color. Applies fairly well. It does have the tendency to crumble as I work it in to my lids. Once it dries, it's set, you cannot blend it or move it. That's what is so great about it - it is very waterproof.

I love these shadow liners! Having read the reviews, when I got mine (I bought it on eBay), I opened the jar, wiped off the top layer of liner with a wedge sponge, sprtized it with some Evian from a can, and recapped it tightly. When I used it a day or two later, I had no problems with texture--I use these as regular liner and apply them with my BE angled brush to get a soft look--the product was creamy and applied smoothly, no flaking or clumping. The color is, as others have written, is not special, but it is a bright, warm, shimmery bronze that lights up my blue eyes. These also wear all day on me without smudging. I'm a huge fan of these and will probably buy every shade they make, which is rare for me.

My review is for the Warm Fig color (which isn't listed), so I'll talk about product & not color...
I love this liner with brush!! I got it in QVC kit & haven't experienced any drying out. I thought this would look too overdone for the more natural look I wear most days. It just makes me look naturally great. I love love love how my eyes look wearing this!
I don't have a lot of experience with brushes & this brush makes it so easy!
Btw: reviews of this same product- listed under Eye Shadow are much higher. FYI

Very disapointed with this product! I was so excited as i love the concept of shadow liner and yes it does give you that beautiful smolder that lasts all day. the problem? Many problems....First- it dried out after just 2 uses! and yes i closed the jar very tightly and wipped the brush before each "dip" to make sure that i didn't get any powder/shaodw into it (as that would dry it out as well). I was so careful with this product and there is no way that it should've dried out after using it twice but this also happened to me with their jet set liner too! next, it flakes horribly! I had chunks of flakes that fell into my eye and it was very painful being that this has a drier consistancey. Another thing is that while you don't see any glitter chunks in the jar- there is TINY glitter particles in this product and as you blink throughout the day- pieces will keep falling into your eye and on your face leaving brown dots all over that are very hard to remove. I am searching for a substitute because all the other shadow liner that i have tried are not dense enough and don't have the great pigment that these smashbox shadow liners have. Mabey i will try another color but i read on here that the fan club color did the exact same thing so mabey it really is the formula and not the color.

I agree with all of the other reviews, except that the color is not unique. I like how it is harder/thicker/drier than other cream shadows b/c it makes it easier to use as a liner.....BUT makes it hard to use as a shadow. Be warned, this one is hard to use as a shadow!

I too bought this on qvc ...but returned. The qvc system is not allowing any reviews on the product which to me is very deceiving....have notified qvc numerous occasions with no apparant fix in sight. I would not recommend this item at all. It smudges all over the eye in a matter of a few hours or so....and it looks like you are wearing eye shadow, not liner. Also the product was drying up within about 10 days. There are better things on the market IMHO to get this effect. Plus if something is waterproof why should it smear? (I did try wearing with a good eye primer as well, same results, fyi)

i love this eyeliner! the color is great. sometimes i use it by itself with a deep black mascara and i have gotten compliments on my eyes.. i bought if from QVC and it came with a great brush that you can make thick lines with. this stuff really stays on also. will definately purchase it in the future.

I don't think that you can buy this anywhere except QVC and some on ebay at this time...just fyi. I was looking for other shades, and they have "fan club", which I believe was released in the UK, because I found it on the QVC-UK website. Apparantly, they also had it on QVC for "today's special value" in a kit. They should be coming out soon with fan club by itself on QVC I think. They did say that this product would be available in stores in July, but who knows whats going on because july is almost over and you can only get the hollywood shade. ANYWAY, I love this stuff. Hollywood is a beautiful, bronzey brown that creates a very soft, smokey eye. I like to use it over a thin line of black eyeliner, because I normally don't like to go without black, but that's just me. The bronze is a little bit lighter than I thought, though. For gals with a little darker skin, it may not have quite the definition you want, but it looks great with black eyeliner under. I have medium skin and I'm tan right now and I love it. The brush (#30) that comes with the set disperses the color perfectly. Mind you, its purpose is not for creating a thin line. It creates a thicker, smudgier look which l am loving. It's like shadow and liner fused into one. If I tried to smudge out a line with normal eyeshadow and liner, it would take me longer and it probably wouldn't have the staying power that this has. It stays where you put it all day. It has the look of a "soft smolder", which I think is beautiful. It looks effortless, and with this product, it actually is! I have definitely had hit and miss luck with smashbox, but I love this. I actually bought the fan club shade on ebay a few days ago and I'm excited to try that too! *****UPDATE***** I still love the brush I got with this, but not so much the shadow liner, and for one reason: I have used maybe like 6 times total, and it is soooo dried out. Like the product has separated from the sides in the jar. It's kind of lame because the jar has been shut tight most of the time I've owned it because like I said, I haven't used it a ton. I wouldn't rebuy it for this reason, and I think you can do the same thing with fluidlines. And there is almost twice the product in a fluidline. It's a beautiful color, but not un-dupe-able. I don't regret the brush though.
