Rural Glamour: Practicing The "Smokey/Smoky" Eye...

Wednesday, July 29, 2009

Here's my attempt at a "Smokey/Smoky" eye. Honestly, I've only did a Smokey eye maybe twice in my makeup life. Like "where am I going to wear all the black eye shadow"?? Well, I did this look... for church!!Lol!

I decided, after watch endless You Tube videos and blogs, that the best smokey eyes are matte. It looks better and blends better...I totally AGREE!


I used Black Radiance Eye Shadow Pencil in Black as a lid base. Then I went over that pencil with a black e/s from an old Sephora palette. Then I took NYX e/s in White and blended up into the brow bone. I use a a MAC Fluidline in Black to line the top and bottom of the eye. Then topped it all off with mascara.:)

Review: Wet N' Wild Speed Gloss in Manic...

Remember when I won Wet N' Wild Speed Gloss in Manic in the WnW/Promo Gift Bag?


Here's a quick review on it!!

Pros-
-I love the color.Its not as mauve on me as it looks in the tube. But its pretty.
-The formula is super light and not sticky at all.
-I like smell of it. Smells like spearmint(its infused with peppermint). Reminds me of Doublemint Gum.lol!



Cons:
-It claims to be a "energizing lip shine". "Shine" yes. "Energizing" no. It tingles when applied. So is that the effect of energy I was waiting on? They could have skipped that.
Overall...Its a nice gloss. But I won't buy it. I think with gloss, a company has to stand out as far as the product and price and not the gimmick.

Backtrack: Wet N' Wild Idol Eyes Eye Shadow Pencil in Electro...

Remember my review on Wet N' Wild Idol Eyes Creme Eye Shadow Pencil....*sigh*....Well, even though they crease I still needed to use Electro( the blue one...)



Of course I did the same as I did with Envy( the green one) I used it as a base with a similiar color on top. At the advice of Kia of Yummy411, I based my lid with my primer as well.


I love them....regardless( yes, it still creased a bit after 5 hrs). I plan on getting the other colors, still:)LOL!
