Alright ladies, I am certifiably nail polish obsessed and I will admit it. Ever since I started getting into polish I've began to explore the world of color and makeup. One look that I've envied is the smoky eye. Its a pretty hot look but so far has been pretty elusive to this makeup newbie. Well, enter Cover Girl smoky shadow blast eyeshadows! Getting the look is supposed to be easy with these products:
I tried the "Natural" look with Shadow Blast duo in Bronze Fire, Line Exact liquid liner in Brown and Lash Blast volume mascara in Brown. These are the swatches of the lid color, crease color and liner, L to R:
I own plenty of gold/bronze type of eyeshadow, but I was still excited to try this smoky look.
I'm a brown girl, so this look was definitely "natural". The colors blended in right with my skin, especially the crease color. It gives me a nice every day look. I wore this combo on Friday and I found that the shadows definitely crease without a primer. I don't own any eyeshadow primer at the moment and this eyeshadow made me wish I did. I may not be a makeup expert, but I know that this eyeshadow creased faster than any other eyeshadow I own! I'm not a fan of volumizing mascara, I prefer lengthening mascaras but this one I like. I'm a Maybelline mascara girl, but this Lash Blast mascara has got me wanting to try the other Lash Blast products because the rich brown color payoff and the somewhat volume it gave to my not so thick lashes. The Line Exact liner? I'm in love, that liner definitely has staying power. All day long staying power and it still washes off easily with soap and water. Cover Girl may be on to something with their Blast mascaras and Line Exact liners. Stay tuned this week to see two more Smoky Shadow Blast looks...
