I am interrupting my regularly schedule reviews because you MUST know about this new product I tried. L’Oreal One Sweep Eye Shadow will change your life. Seriously.
I had seen it in magazines and in the stores but was very skeptical until I read on some blog (forgive me for having no idea where) that someone tried it and it worked. Back story- I am eye makeup application challenged. So I typically just throw on some liner and mascara and call it a day. Eye shadow seems too advanced for me so unless I am going somewhere really fancy I don’t wear it, And even if I am going somewhere fancy I am not sure it really looks all the good cause I do NOT know what I am doing.
Ok ladies, this is GENIUS. Apparently when you apply eye shadow you are supposed to use different colors to highlight and fill in the crease and what have you. This eye shadow consists of three different colors that you apply all at once with their special applicator. All the different colors go right where they should and you are done. I actually use a makeup brush to blend it a little but it is seriously that easy.
If I was a good blogger I would have some sort of pictures or video to show you what I mean, but I honestly did not plan this post and it is late and I am too tired for pictures and too tired looking for video. I just did want to wait another minute to tell you about this because I can now wear eye makeup and it does not look like it was applied by a drunken monkey. I am so crazy excited. Anywho, there is an explanation of things over on the L’Oreal website so why reinvent the wheel. (or you could probably Google your way to a blogger who actually takes the time to do such things- i.e.. not me)
Also for those of us that are challenged and overwhelmed by all of the color choices may I just say the good people of L’Oreal want to help us out too. The shadows are literally titled things like “natural for blue eyes” and “playful for green eyes”. Even “natural for ALL eyes”. You better believe I am going back for some playful colors. (FYI- it is on sale buy one get one half off at Meijer this week so you could get a natural and a playful and have an eye shadow party on your hands)
I am so thrilled with the way my eyes look and excited that a makeup product lived up to its promises. L’Oreal you have a new fan.
I bought this eye shadow with my own hard earned money and have been DYING for the last two days to tell you about it. Dear fine people of L’Oreal, if you would like me to be your blogger spokesperson (you know along with Eva Longoria and Beyoncé) I am totally on board. You can pay me in eye shadow. Have your people call my people.
