Too Faced Smoky Eye Shadow Palette

Following is a review of the Too Faced Smoky Eye Palette from one of our contest winners, Makeup by Remy.  Thank you so much for sharing Remy!

Today I'm gonna share my review on Two Faced Smokey Eyes palette. This palette is a dream come true for smokey eye lovers.


The palette is in a black printed case which looks really classy. It has three rows of shades from which you can get the perfect smokey eyes.  It also comes with a second compartment at the bottom which contains 2 eyeshadow brushes. Each brush has an applicator and an angled brush.


There are also three guide cards in the palette which guide you in creating the perfect smokey look by using each row.


The colors are so pigmented and I love how they show up on the eyes. Here's a close-up of the colors.

You can create a day look, a fashion look or a night look with this palette.  Here are the swatches from each row:

 Day smoke (Cream, Fawn and Bronze)

Fashion Smoke (Sugar Cookie, Wicked Green and Midnight)
 
 Classic Smoke (Black Suede, Silver and Black Spark)
 
 
These colors last for more then 12 hours.I'm saying 12 hours because I haven't worn them for more than that :) . I love the looks you can create with this palette. All in all, I'm utterly in love with this palette. Here's a look I created.  (From the Classic Smoke Row)

EOS - Evolution of Smooth



We were just recently introduced to the Evolution of Smooth products and have absolutely fallen in love with them!  The lip balms come in a regular stick version or the irresistibly cute egg shape that you cannot help but adore.  Although at first glance the oval shape of the egg makes it appear difficult to apply, we found that it was very easy to smooth onto the lips.  

EOS lip balms are 95% organic, 100% natural, and paraben and petrolatum free. These spherical balms also contain antioxidant-rich vitamin E, soothing shea butter and jojoba oil which keeps your lips moist, soft and sensationally smooth.  And even better, they smell SO good!  You will want to try all of the varieties available and now they also come in Lemon Drop which has SPF protection and Tangerine which is medicated.



EOS has now developed a Hand Lotion and a Body Lotion.  Our first trial of the Hand Lotion here at BB had us applying this amazing lotion all day long! As a result, we have ordered and are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Body Lotions and Shaving Creams, too!  Look for them to arrive later this week.
