How I use Tarte Lock & Roll Eye Shadow Duos...

Tuesday, May 19, 2009

Before I got received my EyeQuatic Set with the three Lock & Roll...I had one..Slate...that I could never get to work right...

So, I was playing around with my new ones and thought, "Maybe if I apply with a brush and not the applicator itself...?"

Because Tarte tell you this: apply the cream side first with the brush and then roll( it has a roller ball) the other end( loose color) on top after 10 seconds or until dry for all day wear...

This is what I do:

-apply the cream shadow where you want it on the eye from the original applicator brush included. DO NOT LET IT DRY. Immediately take a brush afte putting where you want it, one with a rounded tip( I used a cheap synthetic brush) and blend the color, getting rid of the harsh lines it creates when dry. Because after the color dries, it won't move. You want to blend the lines and press color down on lid and even the color out.

-then roll the loose color onto the back of you hand or a tissue to get the color out, take a clean brush( not the one you used for the cream shadow application) and pat the color in...

-Voila!! that's it! Check out my examples...

This is Slate( on the lid) with two colors of pink from my Santee palettes...

This is Tanzanite(on the lid) with two colors of purple from Santee palettes....

This is Turquoise( on the lid) and Citrine( on the brown bone) with a brown from a Wet N'Wild palette...
I love them...they last ALL DAY and are gorgeous and a must have once you figure out how to use them...:)

Review: Tarte EyeQuatic Waterproof Summer Essentials Set...

My whole view on this summer changed when Tarte EyeQuatic Waterproof Summer Essentials Set arrived on my doorstep!!!

Let me tell you what you get in the set first:

"Along with a mod-chic headscarf, this set includes 3 mermaid-inspired lock & roll creaseless cream & powder shadow duos and a deluxe lights, camera, splashes! waterproof mascara."

lock & roll shade descriptions:


-The scarf is HUGE...big enough to use as a headscarf, a belt, and sarong, etc! I saw my mother eye-balling it as soon as a took it out of the package. She ain't getting it. Because I'm rocking it!( pics soon)

-The three lock & roll eye shadows are true to color and pigment. There is a special way of using them...and I will expound on the next post...You will want all colors when I show you how I've rocked them and use them. The turquoise is FIRE!

-Lights, Camera, Splashes! Waterproof Mascara is my favorite waterproof mascara. SO, completely slept on. It's super black, separates lashes, adds a bit of volume and TONS of length.

-The color in the lock & roll e/s doesn't bulge...All day wear.( I had it on from 11:00 am-9:00pm creasing.)


If you don't buy any makeup this summer...get this kit...its has great essential, its fun, you will love it. Ya'll know I've never raved like this on any product...BUY IT!!
