ok i take it back, the duo cream shadow liners are not the dumbest thing smashbox has come out with, these are.

first the colors have almost no pigment, secondly the delivery system makes it impossible to use most normal sized brushes and finally many of them appear to be broken. you can spin the grate and only get the outer color out.

could i really be the first one to review this product?! here goes! this "anti-aging" eyeshadow duo is based on the Smashbox Halo Hydrating Powder design/packaging and has two complimentary hydrating mineral shadows -a larger, paler lid color and a smaller, darker crease color- in one circular package with a grinder that shaves off the product when you turn the packaging so everytime you use it, you get freshly shaved loose eyeshadow with the ease of having it pressed for tidiness. i first saw these shadows on QVC and was very interested in the duo called Soft Peach and Cocoa but was not so hyped on the $36 pricetag. however, when i was browsing at Nordstrom's recently with my girlfriend i tried on the shadow (Soft Peach and Cocoa) and fell REALLY in love. the colors, both matte, are a pale peach (shocking! LOL) and a dark brown and they have a really lovely, finely milled and easily blendable texture. i'm not an expert at shadow application like a lot of you aspiring Van Gogh girls on here and it was a snap for me to apply, blend and achieve a really beautiful look with this product. the Soft Peach and Cocoa duo i tried is just *THE PERFECT* everyday, throw-it-on-no-matter-what-you're-wearing and run out the door colors that would be flattering on any skintone and eye color and even though the price is outrageous, i have to have it!!! now for the downside: i don't know if it was just the duo i tried but i had a hell of a time turning the packaging to grind off the pigment and when i finally managed to get some ground, there was ten times too much of the lid color and not enough of the crease color. it was a huge hassle and does kind of put me off of spending so much money on an eyeshadow duo that i will end up wasting tons of due to the faulty packaging. in theory the packaging idea of turning the product and shaving off a fresh application each time is genius but in your actual hands it was nearly impossible! maybe i had a faulty tester or i was doing it wrong, but i'm fearing that since i fell so hard for the wearable, neutral colors i will soon be wrestling that little black package on a daily basis :D definitely test out this product at the Smashbox counter near you and see if it's something you'll want to wrestle with too!
