FOTD Friday: L’Oreal HIP’s Sculpted eyeshadow duo

Hi fam!

Soooo, a reader asked me about L’Oreal HIP’s eyeshadow duo in Sculpted. That would be this baby here.

Gorgeous, uh? She wanted to know how to make it into a wearable work-safe look. I didn’t think it was possible only because this is one of L’O HIP’s “metallic” duos….but after playing around a bit, I think you can roll up in a meeting with this duo and not get the side eye.

First…here are some swatches.

I would describe the color to the left as a silver based pink. Even when packed on, it doesn’t seem to be too intimidating. However, the darker color, which I would describe as as a chalky black with pink shimmer, can be a little scary if you don’t take your time.

To make sure I don’t overdo it with darker colors on the crease, I have a little method. I do a dot!

That little dot of shadow, when blended across the crease, will be more than enough. Windshield wiper motion time, chicks!

And has anyone tried Urban Decay’s liner in 1999?

Loves it! I lined the inner half of my waterline with this. On to the look!

… about a blush overload. I kinda love it though. What do y’all think?


So yeah…although it’s a “metallic” duo, Sculpted is pretty wearable. Application is everything. Adding some more of that chalky black can turn it into a bangin’ night eye.

Holla! Does anyone have this duo? Want it? Hate it?

I love you, wonderful people. Have fantastic weekend!

Stay beautiful,

    I went crazy on a HiP BOGO sale at walgreens a few months ago and I have almost every color – except for some of the newer ones. This is one of my fav. next to wicked

    I have this one and it's one of my faves. It makes a great smoky eye. I haven't tried it for daywear though. Check out mspurplekisses81 on youtube for tuts on hip duos. That girl is BAD! She should be a rep for L'Oreal because she works these duos like nobodies business. She can make the brightest duos wearable for everyday. She has a tut for almost all of them, and if she doesn't have one you want to see send her a request and she'll hook you up. I'm telling ya'll, she's the best. My YT name is staceface75 so if you stop by her channel let her know that I sent you her way with rave reviews! :-)

    That's a lovely duo. You look gorgeous!

  • Phyllis Bourne

    I love the way the HIP duos look on you, but I just haven't got the hang of applying them.

    And there's no such thing as blush overload. The more, the better.

  • FlyHoney

    a girl after my own heart! i agree, less is def more with shadows like that. i usually pack at least one hip duo with me when i go out of town. gotta luv it!

  • Product Junkie Diva

    Another cute look B.
    Good job and have a great weekend.\

  • Kizzy

    The blush is pretty!

  • Jazz

    i love L'OREL's HIP cosmetic line! They put some bold colors together, BUT when put on they are Fantabulouse and they arent expensive at all!

  • Cel

    "Windshield wiper motion"? You crack me up! BTW, I wanted to let you know that I gave you a Kreativ Blogger Award 😉 Check out all the detes here:

    Keep doing your thing!


  • Carmen Y

    I love "sculpted" on you! Funny thing, I wore it to work today. Your application is nice…Thanks for the post :-)

  • Beautifully.Conjured.Up

    This one is the best thus far…I'm loving the colors!!

  • GS

    I SO want that duo… so bad HIP is not sold here… but it´s a very pretty combination

  • Mama Mish Mash

    I have this duo and Sassy(a teal and taupe one) and never wear them because I couldn't just "throw" them on and go…After seeing you work your magic with this duo…I think I was just applying the shades a little too heavy handed…I'll have to give them another try.

  • Phyrra

    I love the way you toned down the metallics for the eye look. Nice!

  • qdavis2004

    The black with the purple glitter in this duo is a really good dupe for those of you who didn't get a chance to pick up MAC's young punk e/s from the style black collection. And the one thing that this black has over young punk is that you don't have all the fallout from the glitter in young punk.

    Thank you, my darlings!

  • Pumps and Gloss

    Hey Brittles, I love this look on you. I do have it and I love it. Def easy to apply.
