Queen Latifah is one of my favoritest people in the whole world. Like…I LOVE LOVE her. A lot. She is such a inspiration. Yes, I watch Living Single reruns every week. Yes, I have and love her jazz album. And yes I think U.N.I.T.Y. is STILL the jam.
For Superbowl XLIV, Queen rocked this look…
You can get these creamy shadow sticks for $9.99 where ever CoverGirl products are sold. Now the question is…do they work?
The Shadow Blast is supposed to help you achieve a colorful smoky eye by providing you with a lid and crease color. It fits right in your hand which makes for great on-the-go shadow touch-ups.
The concept is pretty simple. The light color (step 1) goes right on the lid and the darker color (step 2) goes in the crease and the lower lashline. It is illustrated beautiful on the packaging.
Step 1 of Purple Plume is a creamy pink that isn’t as scary as I thought it would be.
You will have to use a blending brush to blend the two colors together for a flawless look. I finished the look with a a highlight, liner and mascara and…
CREASING! Creasing makes me cry. Seriously. It is the worst thing that can ever happen to eye shadow application. I think I would like the Shadow Blast more if it stayed on the lids longer. I have heavy lids and without a base, I crease beyond belief. So I’m not sure if I like Shadow Blast by itself.
But for touching up looks on the go? Perfecto!
