smashbox 24K Golden Effect Top Coat Mascara

Smasbox 24K Golden Effect Top Coat Mascara is the perfect solution if golden lashes are what you seek this Season!

This mascara top coat gives lashes a bit of shimmering sparkle and shimmer! It quite reminds me of Bare Escentuals Luminous Lashes which I’ve reviewed in a previous post. I’m hopeful this version from Smashbox will successfully create a beautiful shimmer to my eyes as the Bare Escentuals version takes a bit of work and simplicity rules!

Looks rather promising! At the moment it’s only available at QVC so use item number A82594 to nab yourself one at $19 USD.

I imagine we’ll see it from Smashbox soon or maybe for the Holiday Collection?

Love this?

Want it?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Hi Izzy, this reminds me of a Japanese brand which is similar. Can’t remember the name though. The applicator is a comba nd comes in silver and gold.

    gracie 🙂

    Hi there!

    The Smashbox topcoat looks like a lot of fun! You have to be the biggest lemming generator for me. =D

    I’m glad to hear you are well.

    I am on the mend, thanks for asking. I’m past the worst of it. Now if only it’d cool down. It’s a bit hot and sticky here. How is it in your part of the world?

    I might have to give the Lavshuca cream foundation a try. If you like powder foundations, the Lavshuca one is good. Of course you might like a different one better.

    I wasn’t a huge fan of the Lavshuca fall colors. They were a bit blah. I liked the PU-1 and SV-1 but that was it. With the tight economy, the J companies are playing it safe.

    Lucky you to have received most of your haul! Mine got hung up in customs so I’ll get my haul tomorrow and I think possibly Thurs else Fri.

    I’m looking forward to hearing about your hauls and what you think of them!

    I liked the Lancome Piha post. I was a bit worried after Gucci Westman left that it was going to get blah again. The Piha set looks very promising. I called Bloomies and got my name on the list. =D Thanks for that tip!

    We’re not used to the crazy drivers here, yet. I hope they don’t get too common place. It’s going to be bad around Labor Day when the RNC rolls into town. I am not looking forward to that. There will be lots of delegates and possibly even more protestors.

    The MD singles are nice. I like the palettes but yes they are incredibly spendy. With all my travel, I’d lose too many singles so I go with the palette. That way I can take more colors too…

    Have you looked at the Sephora by OPI collection? I’ve picked up a couple of colors. It looks fun. Sephora also has the Givenchy nailpolish too. If you like near blacks, I recommend nabbing it before it sells out. I think it’s online only.

    Thanks for not minding any ramblings. Here’s one for you – I would have rather stayed at work all day rather than have had to go to the Dentist. Eek! Dentist scary. Actually it went very well and quickly although now half my face is numb and my jaw is sore. I have also discovered how hard it is to drink anything after two novacaine injections. Thank goodness for straws.

    Hope you have a good day!

    hey muse i love your site! i remember a post you had awhile ago that gave a link to a website where you could try on hairstyles & makeup for free. i tried looking but i couldn't find it. i'm in desperate need of a new haircut =} do you remember this post?

  • Askmewhats

    that is a very very very cute and Expensive looking packaging!!! So cute!

  • rocketqueen

    Yes yes yes! Rocketqueen wants! Am getting this for Xmas if not sooner!

  • the Muse

    Hi there gracie

    Oh yes I have them. I know exactly the ones you mean. They are by sana 🙂 Good stuff!

  • the Muse

    hi there betsy!

    Agreed 😉 Teehee I try I try 😉 LOL!

    You got the Classic Rock collection last you so you prob have the lumnious eyes that came with it. Did you like it?

    Did you have a flu or something else?!

    It’s actually getting cooler here. This morning it was downright frigid outside at 60 degrees! So we are seeing signs of fall a bit early!

    It sounds good. I normally use Sofina but since they are doing away with raycious, cut my heart out why dontcha, I’ll have to find something else!

    Me either. Vast disappoinment same with the noble on colors. sigh!

    I see many companies that are playing it safe this year including BBW.

    Yak customs stinks 😛 The rest of mine still has to be purchased…the CD stuff and some COD. Aside from that I got my JS, got my lavshuca, got my visee. And that’s about it I believe.

    Hope you got it today by some chance 🙂

    I’m trying to pump out fall items as quick as possible but sometimes I wish I had more than one face hehe!

    Thanks! Glad you enjoyed the Piha post!

    I must admit I agree with you on this. Lancome has sure come a long way hasn’t it?!

    I never paid much attention to lancome until they funked it up with the mystery game and have contentiously kept up with these quirky fun collections as of late.

    You’re most welcome. And hey if it fails to work at least we each have one of 500 right? Makes us special lol!

    Sounds like a nightmare but I’m used too it. For instance no one stops for stops signs here you can imagine the fun stuff we get up to daily with traffic 🙂

    The palettes are a much better deal as well but I somehow feel like it’s such an posh purchase. I really want one though 🙂

    Yes and it’s gorgeous. I don’t normally pay as much attention to my nails as I should but I must say it’s a gorgeous collection. At the moment I’m particularly in love with Cult of Cherry Illegal Purple. Gorgeous!

    I love rambling..ramble on! We never have time to talk it seems this is ideal.

    Yak dentist! I’ve never had work done but just going for a cleaning is a chore 🙁 I’m in pain for hours after. yak!

    Poor thing 🙁 I hope you’re feeling better today!

    Have a great day!
    Big Hugs!
