Dug this one up in my drawer when I had my big clean-out, decided it was time for it to get some attention!
Maybelline Expert Wear in Emerald Smokes, $5.99 at Walgreens
I had hoped this would really bring out my green eyes. Did it?? Let's see!
Well.. I mean, the shadow is green.. but I think a purple would bring out the color more than just matching colors. Also, the green lends toward the yellow side, which just reminds me of an old bruise, haha!
The only qualm I have with these Maybelline quads is that the color pay-off just isn't as much as I expect.. every time!! Siiigh. And if there's any glitter than it's even more disappointing. But for a drugstore shadow they do hold their own! =)
Also, is it just me, or does 4 eyeshadows seem like a bit much to do a smoky eye? I normally do two (blend at the crease) or 3, max. Just seems odd to me. =\
The Stylish Smokes line comes in 4 quads: Amethyst, Neutral, Charcoal, and Emerald.
Think you might try these? How are you at doing the ol' Smoky Eye?? I'll show you my attempt at a major smoky eye tomorrow..
Until next time--
