Review Overview

Jet Set Waterproof Eye Liner is yet another gel eyeliner whose price tag isn’t warranted given its blatant, late-to-the-game-yet-with-nothing-new-to-add similarities to several less-expensive options. This is waterproof, comes in a range of classic and trendy colors (of which Teal is not recommended), and wears beautifully. We couldn’t fault anyone for using this eyeliner, but we'd be sure to tell them they spent too much money!

Note: like most long-wearing gel liners, this one has a tendency to dry out unless you replace the cap tightly after each and every use. Forgetting to do this even once can make this eyeliner unusable.

Brand Overview

Smashbox At-A-Glance

Strengths: A unique Anti-Shine product that is a must-try if you have very oily skin; mostly excellent foundations with a neutral range of shades; improved powder eyeshadows and lip color products; well-constructed makeup brushes.

Weaknesses: A few products that are better in concept than execution.

Perhaps one of the most interesting things about Smashbox is that its name refers to the early, accordion-style cameras and that Smashbox is first and foremost a Hollywood-based photography studio. The company's creators, Dean and Davis Factor, have their heritage in makeup—their great-grandfather was the legendary makeup artist Max Factor. The makeup, which debuted in 1996, began as a collection of trendy and fashion-forward colors coupled with a pleasingly neutral palette of foundations, concealers, and powders. Nowadays, there are exceptional options to choose from, but also some color products that fall short due to too sheer formulas or other issues noted in their respective reviews.

Where Smashbox has lived up to their Hollywood makeup pedigree is with a few standout formulas, including impressive lip products as well as excellent foundations, BB and CC cream options. Of course, the brand is also well-known for their range of makeup primers—whether that’s a necessary step is up for debate—but nevertheless they do offer a few products in this category that are worth considering.
