Product Review: Too Faced Smoky Eye Shadow Collection

Product Review: Too Faced Smoky Eye Shadow Collection



I don't wear eyeshadow on the regular.  Call me lazy, but a little concealer, eye primer, eyeliner and mascara and that's my typical eye makeup look.  (of course my eyebrows are meticulously done…)  However, when I want to get my sexy swagger in full effect, I defer to the ever-popular smoky eye. 

There are a gazillion and one ways to achieve —just google it.  But for novices who want to learn how to create a traditional smoky eye using quality shadows with step-by-step instructions, Too Faced Smoky Eye Shadow Collection is the way to go.  I am already a fan of the Too Faced Shadow Collections—The Natural Eye Collection is well-used palette for brides.

So, I was in Las Vegas for the weekend (for work of course), but on my night out, I decided to rock a smoky eye.  And rock it I did—with my Too Faced Smoky Eye Shadow Collection. 

Here are the deets on Too Faced Smoky Eye Collection:

What It Is:
A smokey eye is the most requested makeup look by women seeking a smoldering, sexy style. We reintroduce this popular collection with a slimmer package and new, color-saturated formulas. Created for this deeply blendedtechnique, our wearable shades add a modern drama to all eye shapes.

This set contains:
– 3 x 0.07 oz Eye Shadows in Firefly (silvery taupe), White Lie (sugar white), In A Flash (silver shimmer)

More To Love:
Smokin’ Hot Effect: A collection of nine, complimentary shades are the perfect palette of wearable, smokey eye options for day to night, and every memorable moment in between. 

Fired-Up Formulas: Pigment-rich, high-performing shadows offer an essential range of hues and textures from velvety mattes to silky shimmers.

How-To Cards: Our signature, how-to lesson cards offer step-by-step application instructions for creating smokey eyes in minutes.

My results:

Let me count the ways I love the 

1.  Incredible quality eyeshadow.  Matte, shimmer and ultra shiny silver shadows that a pigment potent.  Honestly, a touch goes a very long way, even on brown skin.

2.  Long wearing.  I wore these shadows all night and they lasted. And lasted.  Pretty much because I didn't wash my face before I went to bed, but you get the point.

3.  LOTS of product.  Where on earth can you get nine shadows, all beautifully housed in one kit for $36?  That means you are paying budget prices for a quality product.  Love that.

4.  They blend like crazy.  I went a little nuts experimenting.  I mixed blue and purple, black and grey, silver and black (Long Live the Raiders) and on and on.  And as you can see, the results were quite gorgeous, if I must say so myself.

5.  Handy tutorial cards.  I didn't use them, but they are perfect for the novice or the aspiring makeup artist.
