Buy It: L'Oreal Studio Secrets Quad in Cobalt Smokes...

Thursday, September 09, 2010

I purchased L'Oreal Studio Secrets quad in Cobalt Smokes after seeing an Eva Longoria's L'Oreal Ad in Cobalt Smokes (CORRECTION: She's wearing Blackened Smokes. iFAIL). Her ad makes the quad look black smoky eye kit but it actually a dark blue smoky eye kit.
The colors are highly pigmented but not so pigmented you can't do a subtle look with it. You don't have to built so much to get intensity.

L'Oreal are you stepping you drugstore game up or what?

Guess that Milani/Wet N' Wild nipping at your heels was getting a bit much! Ha!
Here's my look....I did the grey blue color in the inner eye to the middle, then the navy satin color from the inner eye to outer....smoked it out in the corner with the black satin( it should have been a matte, would have gave a but more darkness)....and white highlighter( a bit on the crumbly side) under the crease. I used a taupe colored from the BH Cosmetics 120 3rd edition palette to blend.....
Not much work required.

Great quad for a beginner who wants a smokey eye/evening eye look in one palette at low cost or just to practice with.

To take it up a notch, liquid liner on the top lid would be great.:)
