Review:Maybelline Stylish Smokes in Emerald Smokes...

Thursday, October 22, 2009

Finally, I picked up one of the Maybelline Stylish Smokes. I got Emerald Smokes. Why did it take so long? I have no history with Maybelline Eye Shadows. I own none. And I wasn't getting caught up in another smoky eye "kit". I heard these urban tales and myths of the Stylish Smokes being "highly pigmented" and "MAC dupes" after much debating and a little Amazon Associates money coming my way, I picked it up. There.:)

I did this look this morning. It comes with a face chart but I didn't follow it.**Kanye shrug**
Okay, I don't get the "highly pigmented" part. I was building color out of control to get this intensity! I was seriously baffled at this claim. I admit its a pretty green smoky look, but I got shadows that can do this. I do like that golden brown 'lid' color though...that's original.
Eh, I don't think I want another one of the quads but I'll hold on to this one.:)

***Is there a reason why this isn't listed on Maybelline's website?***

NOTD:Wet N' Wild Rock Solid in Mystic Quartz....

Today I'm wearing Wet N' Wild Rock Solid in Mystic Quartz. When I first saw the color in the bottle I was thought it was gorgeous. But this look is THREE coats and I can still see my nail underneath. Total Balloon Boy Hoax of a nail polish. Then I remembered that in the past I have owned a Rock Solid, some holiday LE color, that had the same THREE coat problem and that's why I never owned anymore of these.

***Wet N'Wild, you can discontinue these Rock Solid, now and expand the Craze polishes to more colors...Love, Jamesy:)***
