Bobbi Brown Smoking Hot

Bobbi Brown dedicated a little collection to smokey eyes. I think it’s one of my favourite eye looks. I just smoke the heck out of my pencil liners. It’s great when I’m in a rush because I can be messy and I’d still look on trend. LOL! For this Smoking Hot collection, Bobbi Brown introduces Smokey Eye Mascara and Smokey Eye Kajal Liners. “This season’s smokey eye is all about mega lashes and richly pigmented liner”  – Bobbi Brown

 

Bobbi Brown Smoking Hot

The Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara (RM105) volumizes and separates my lashes. It doesn’t do much in lengthening and the one sent to me is not waterproof. There was a bit of a learning curve because the brush is larger than the one I’m using which is tapered. Once I’ve gotten used to it, it works great. I find that the formula clumps a little, so I used the trick that Wayne Goss shared the other day. I use a tissue to wipe the wand before applying on my curled lashes. WORKS GREAT! No clumping and there was still enough product to coat my lashes beautifully.

The Smokey Eye Kajal Liners (RM90) come with a sharpener and when one end is the pencil, the other end is a sponge smudger. The smudger works when you use it gently. If you use your Hulk strength, you might rub off the product. The kajal liners aren’t as soft and creamy as others I’ve tried. The good news is that they don’t break easily, but the bad news is they don’t glide on like butter. Win some lose some. I don’t really have a problem with pencil liners smudging on me, so I can’t exactly tell you if these will. They last the whole 8 hours on me and I haven’t worn longer than that.

I have created a look using these 3 products. I use Jade on my upper and lower lash lines, and Noir on my waterline. Then, I applied 3 coats of the Smokey Eye Mascara to show you that the formula doesn’t clump.

I love the green because it’s a darker mysterious shade. What can I say? I love darker shades 🙂 What do you think? Have you tried this mascara or the kajal liners?

  • Jade is actually such a beautiful color! I love the simple look you’ve created 🙂

    • Thanks Monika. I love Jade too… I don’t have a green like that in my stash 🙂

  • Ha ha! Hulk strength! I used to have a Rimmel liner with a sponge on one end and I LOVED it! Need to try this technique again for sho. Loving the smoky look on you as always!

    • Thanks Kristen. Now I’m wondering how I’m going to clean that sponge tip… just wiping it with tissue?

      • Ting

        I have been wondering how to do that as well… just wash with soap and tissue dry perhaps?

        • I just tried cleaning it. I sprayed some brush cleaner on a piece of cloth and wipe the sponge on it. I didn’t use tissue because it kept ripping apart. That, or just a makeup wipe. Worked great 🙂

  • Ting

    The liners really enhances your eye shapes. I love! 😀

    • Aaw, thank you Ting 🙂 This is such an easy look to wear too!

  • Ooooh, that look is SEXY, Lily! I hope your husband noticed! LOL!

    • LOL! No, I did this in the morning when he was at work and I washed it off right after I took the pics and went back to become a mommy. Hahahaha!

  • Liz

    So pretty! I noticed that the BB long-wear liners actually have amazing staying power. You’re so lucky that liners don’t run on you. 🙂

    • Yes, I definitely consider myself lucky. These liners do have great staying power though 🙂

  • Thats a gorgeous eye look!

    • Thanks Parita!

  • LOVE!! I love liner looks like this, especially when I’m out and about for a long time. Shadows crease so easily on me, but liners seem to stay put. GO FIGURE. 🙂

    • LOL good thing liners stay on you then. Shadows crease on me too! NARS smudge proof primer is awesome though.

  • I’m so glad to hear these work well for you! The liner doesn’t last on me at all, which is sad as I do like Jade!

    • Sorry to hear that, Sunny. I think Jade would look good on you too!

  • That is smoking HAWT! I loooove the blackened complex Jade but no buttery glide = not for me 🙁

    • I think this will look awesome with those Charlotte Tilbury pencil liners you featured! I really want to try them so waiting for the availability of international shipping.

  • liyeun

    Wow. I never thought of trying their khol eyeliners…it is about time I shud, thanks alot! However, I just dont get why liners tend to smudge on me? I have to rub off every two hours. -.-“

    • Have you tried powdering your eyes before lining then setting with powder again? I know it’s a lot of trouble but I find liners stay much better like that.

      • liyeun

        Oh I have never tried that! I shall try that tip, thank you so much! ^^
        Btw, do you have tips to avoid mascara from smudging too? Even though I curl my lashes before that, most waterproof mascaras I use tend to leave marks on my lower eye area near my cheeks. Why does that happen? Im so clueless, dont know what went went wrong.

        • Hey Liyuen, Do you tear or do your eyes water? It happens when we blink. Maybe that area is a little oily so throughout the day, there might be smudges. I sometimes experience this too, when I’m out in town instead of staying in the office. Have you tried smudge proof mascaras instead of waterproof ones? Mascaras don’t smudge on me often, but I realise that when I use smudge proof mascaras, I don’t get those dark smudges under my eyes. I like the one by Estee Lauder. Maybe you should try that?

          • liyeun

            I tried most mascaras from Estee too, but to no avail. I shall keep on trying others cos I cannot live without mascaras. Errr, there are smudge proof mascaras too? *gulp* goodness, I need to learn more about mascaras now! Hahaha….. thanks alot, Lily! You have been great help!

            • You’re welcome Liyuen. I hope I did help!

  • I would definitely pass on those liners because I would probably end up with raccoon eyes in no time but the mascara is interesting. 🙂

    • Raccoon eyes? LOL! Maybe you can try pressing eye shadow on top of the liner. I find that this tecnique helps my liners stay put much longer 🙂

  • What a gorgeous look Lily! I have to confess I have never put on on eyeliner on my waterline (gasp!) because I’m scared to…

    • You should try it Sofia! Black liner on waterline is super sexy 😛

  • i like the colors on you! and the overall look! good to know about the liners – i prefer creamy, so i think i can skip these since i already have enough liners 🙂

    • I wouldn’t say they’re not creamy at all… just not as buttery as some I’ve tried 🙂
