Hot Mama Tip: Easy Eyes

When I first heard of this next product, I was skeptical, yet intrigued. Applying eye shadow, especially tricky effects like a smokey eye, can be difficult. It usually takes a lot of practice, and thus a lot of time and product to achieve the right look.

So, a makeup artist perfected (in her kitchen, no less!) a mineral eye makeup that you can apply to your eyes in one shot with a plastic sheet. The whole thing, from lashes to brows, is done for you instantly. Well, ok, maybe there is a bit of fussing with the placement and then the primer, but most of the work is done for you.

I read the reviews on this product, which were for the most part very positive. The eye shadow itself was long-lasting and everyone said they got lots of complements. The only drawback I can see would be if they didn’t fit your eye shape correctly. I’d be more into trying one if they weren’t five bucks a pop.

But, they also seem like a nice time-saver for all those holiday parties. Would you be willing to chance it?

It’s a Merry Christmas Throwdown in ol’ Bethlehem. You know how it works: captions in the comments, rants get bonus points if sufficiently amusing:
