It was like 30 degrees out today, so I decided to stay in and experiment with some makeup. As I’ve said before, I really don’t wear that much, but I do like playing up my eyes occasionally. So today I decided to try and experiment with the smokey eye a la Kim Kardashian and Rani Mukherjee. Well, it didn’t work. Those makeup tutorial girls on youtube make it seem like it’s a cakewalk, but for people like me who are new to makeup, the result isn’t pretty. It looked like somebody punched me in the eye. Not cool.
So until I become a smokey eye pro I was thinking of getting my hands on CoverGirl’s Smoky Shadow Blast. This shadow stick promises sultry smokey eyes in just 2 easy, breezy steps. Use the rounded end over the entire lid and the angled end along lash line and crease and you’re done.
Before buying the product though, I decided to watch a couple of reviews on YouTube. The makeup gurus say that apparently this product creases like crazy if you don’t use a primer and the tip of the angled end is thick and hard to use. From the videos that I’ve seen, I do feel that the end result isn’t as bold as I would like it to be. That’s too bad because Drew Barrymore’s eyes look fantastic in the commercial and print ad.
Anyways, I’m still in two minds about buying this because I do feel that it might work as a good base for eye shadows and make it easier for me to do a smokey eye. The colors are really pretty too. I like the onyx smoke, purple plume and the citrus flair. At $8.50, the price isn’t too bad either.
