Animal eyes!

I was browsing online and saw these mineral cream applique eye shadows and I couldn’t help myself. Camo?! On my eyes?! My boyfriend would get the biggest kick out of that!

On Sunday, I slipped out one of the five appliques that come in the rectangular package of the product, called ColorOn EyeEnvy by ColorOn Professionals. (I chose the Exotic Kit but you can see from the link above that there are more conventional colors…but if you’ve been following my blog…you know that I love color and boldness!) Included in the kit is also setting gel powder, a brush to apply it, and instructions.

In order to transfer the eye shadow to your eyelid, you gently rub over the back of the applique on your eyelid. It's actually really easy!

After you put the applique to your eye and rub it on, you blend if needed. With the designs, they don’t recommend blending so I used powder eye shadow to fill in the gaps near the inner corner of my eye when I used this leopard print applique.

In the pic above you can see where I was a little off in my placement but overall, the product was easy to use and didn’t take long at all.

I could have written something up and posted this earlier in the week. But before doing that, I needed to use the product again. The day I applied the leopard print eye shadow, I was stricken with a stomach bug. So while I was impressed that the shadow withstood the test of tears while puking and curling my head (and eyeshadowed eyes) into my pillow when my stomach felt like it would never stop hurting (I NEVER want to relive that kind of illnes…blech!), you can understand why I wanted to go round two with this!

I used Urban Decay’s Primer Potion on my lids on the leopard print day. I did not when I used the zebra print:

Loved this! Many people thought I was super talented but I came clean: it was an applique! BUT. This time, it definitely creased in my creaseline. I didn’t use the primer, maybe I should have. But the whole three or four hours I had this on, my eyelids felt tacky and I was aware of the appliques on my eyes. I also felt very unnatural. While I love playing with color, I’m not usually THIS bold out in public!

But check out the link anyway. Keep in mind that yes, the appliques are $25 for the package, but you can reuse the appliques I believe up to two times per each so that’s up to 15 applications.
