~Swatches + Review~ tarte eye catchers 6-piece smolderEYES™ & skinny smolderEYES™ collector's set........

Hey Everyone!

I'm bringing you another yummy holiday set from tarte cosmetics. This is 

 tarte eye catchers 6-piece smolderEYES™ & skinny smolderEYES™ collector's set





 The eye catchers set comes with 5 smolderEyes pencils and 1 skinny smolderEYES pencil in onyx.
 I already own one smolderEYES pencil with NO NAME. It came in a kit **shrugs** lol! I used them as a base color under shadow, like one would use a shadow stick...
 (left to right) Champagne,Ash Violet, Rainforest Black,Gunmetal, Gold, and Onyx
I used Gold and Gunmetal out one day, on top of e.l.f's shadow base. The results were a long lasting color with a bit of creasing after five hours. Really! I just did that to check out the longevity without a shadow on top of the pencil.

Consensus:
LOVE THESE PENCILS!!! I don't own a zillion shadow sticks because I really thought I didn't need them. I understand why so many people use them but its not that serious for me. I only own two of the highly popular NYX pencils, Black Bean and White and I melted them down in a container and barely use them. I like the longevity and brilliance of color of the tarte pencils. The "smudger" sponge could be eliminated. I rather smooth the color on with a concealer brush or a synthetic flat brush.

The set is $39 compared to $25 for ONE smolderEYES pencil and $19 for ONE skinnyEYES pencil. I believe these are same full size pencils that they sell. Its like buy one get five free!! Get you a piece!
