Holy Grail Eye Pencil: Smashbox Cream Eyeliner

Hi lovelies!

After a few weeks of being MIA due to exams and then a much needed vacay, today I’m sharing my holy grail eyeliner pencil for a neutral/everyday look. I’ve literally had this pencil for 5 years. I probably shouldn’t still own it….but as you can see, this stub has lasted me forever! I don’t use a lot, because with bottom liner I feel that less is more. This is my holy-grail, no-fail, bottom-lashes eyeliner for when I want extra definition around my eyes. I’m not really one to use an eyeliner pencil on my top lashes- if you’ve read my blog before, you’ll know I’m a strict liquid-cat-eye or nothing type of girl.


Remember those days when we used to put the blackest of black eyeliners under our eyes and not much else? Well I do! I basically started switching to brown under the eyes in lieu of all black all the time for a more subtle look. I started noticing that a lot of Victoria’s Secret models makeup would be really soft and barely-there under the eyes, so I’ve since been using only the tiniest stroke of this liner about halfway across my lash line and I really prefer it now.

This pencil is in the colour Midnight Brown, and Smashbox has obviously updated it’s line over the years, so I’m not sure if this exact shade is still sold, but I do recommend trying their liners. Although I love the Urban Decay eyeliner pencils, I find their product runs out quicker than this one does. It has been 5 freaking years after all.

Do you have a holy grail neutral liner I need to try?
