She happens to also be creative director of Giorgio Armani Beauty, Dolce & Gabbana and Covergirl, yes Easy, Breezy, Covergirl!
This makes my BEAUTY BALLER ON A BUDGET heart happy!
I started to pay more attention to this drugstore staple when I discovered the woman behind this:
A two-step cream stick to give you an easy smoky eye. This one is called Bronze Fire. I picked it because you can never go wrong with a great basic champagne/bronze brown duo.
|(NC 42 skin)|
Apply warm champagne shimmer to lid up to brow bone - I used a synthetic brush (MAC #252) to blend after I applied the stick directly to my skin.
Apply this bronzey brown to upper/bottom lash lines and also to your crease - taking the same synthetic brush I blended this into my crease. It worked surprisingly well - it was a wash of color. I took my MAC #219 pencil brush and smudged my bottom lash line.
|(This is right before I blended with the #252 brush into my crease/outer V)|
Again, I bought this because I knew Pat's association to the brand, therefore I had to see what she can bring to the budget conscious customer.
Now, because the color I chose is relatively safe - it didn't really wow me but I am glad I tried it. I love how how this shade duo stick looks on Drew Barrymore but then again maybe I am just admiring fine Photoshop work?
And just like Gwen Stefani pushing L'Oreal lipstick to me - I gladly opened my wallet to try it out.
Will I run out and buy more colors? It pains me to say this but this is a FAIL for me - the champagne base color didn't even last a full three hours even on top of my fail proof primer (TFSI). I will keep this for weekends at the playground with my daughter. Also once the pointed tip of the liner/crease Step 2 sides wears down I won't be able to use it line my bottom lash line. I guess I could just use it as an easy weekend lid color.
More to come on that color.
I purchased this at my local Walgreen's drugstore that was offering a Buy One, get the Second 50% special.
