L'Oreal One Sweep Eyeshadow - Is it?

Hey Chicas!

I'm sure we have all seen the wonderful displays at the the drugstore of this new and wonderful eye palette that will make your makeup routine super easy!  Ummm...about that.  Well I'm talking about L'Oreal One Sweep Eyeshadow in Natural.  This one has mostly all matte shades, and there is another color palette that had similar colors but with shimmer, and that's probably that one that I should have gotten, and not let the "cosmetician" (please like a teenager has any training, let along the topic) talk me into it...damn!

So at Shoppers it is totally overpriced $13.....too expensive.  Wal Mart is about $9 so better, but still a little pricey for the amount of eyeshadow you get.

Couldn't find the pics I a video still will have to do!

The shadow is pretty soft....not really pigmented, need about 3 sweeps to get the color.  Blends well, and is easy to maintain and do in a rush.  The applicator is a sponge, and flat.....your eyes are not...duh, but think about it.  Think about the size of the applicator and the size of space on your lid.  Do you have a smaller eye...if yes, then this is the perfect option for you.  My lid is a little larger and the eye shadow doesn't fall exactly where it should, but still totally workable.  The staying power is decent, don't expect to go 15 hours in it though, it will get you through work.

So to get this look, watch the video below....

Products Used:
Estee Lauder Artist Eye Pencil - Soft Smudge Brown
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil - Cottage Cheese
L'Oreal One Sweep Eye Shadow - Natural
L'Oreal Double Extend Mascara
Maybelline Dream Smooth Blush- Peach Satin
Natural Beauty Inspired by Carmindy Ultra Smoothing Lip Tint - Pomegranate

So the bottom's not prefect, but I think if you have smaller eyes (aka space) this will work well for you....but I so suggest looking for one that has some shimmer!

Hope this helps you guys!
