Get Set for Eye Envy

Sephora and some other stores have a unique and dramatic eyeshadow. ColorOn's Professional Eye Envy is an applique that gives lids looks such as; natural, smoky, and leopard. Loseilevich, the line's creator, developed this all mineral shadow in her kitchen over the last ten years. The applique is pressed onto the eyelid or lightly brushed on and then peeled off, depending on the desired intensity. One can also mix and blend colors. There is a set of about eleven different colors with names like Odyssey, Tropics, Illusions, Flaunt, and Spread Your Wings. After applying this, dust with Get Set powder from the same brand. It retails for $25 and you might be the envy of your friends.

The Lengths Mascara will go to the Market: Great Expectations

Recently Sephora, department stores, and drugstores have gone to great lengths to come out with so many new brands of mascara. How does a girl decide which one to buy? Almost every cosmetic line has a new mascara out. Almay's Intense i-color has almost the same tactic as Cover Girl even the eye color enhancement colors have the same names; they both have Black Pearl for hazel eyes. I think consumers would like to believe mascaras have major differences , but some may concentrate on special features and stand out packaging. In the long run, mascara can darken, thicken , lengthen, curl, add color or highlights, be waterproof and non- clumpy. The market has become over saturated with varied tactics, but at the end of the day one can bat an eyelash at the influx of these styles.
