I saw the Maybelline Color Pearls shadow in the store many times before I finally bought it. It didn’t look that great in the package, but I finally decided to give it a shot. I was hoping for some directions, but there were none. I had chosen the Carbon Frost; I just swept the dark color on my lid and the light pearlized side everywhere else. It looked great and was so easy! I know I sound overly excited, but with my super fair complexion, if I go wrong with a smoky eye, it looks like I got into a brawl.
I decided to try out a new liner while I was at it – Rimmel Exaggerate Liner. It was a great heavy liner, super black, but definitely would have been too much for day. It is very wet, so be careful not to blink too much or it will smear all over. I loved the drama of it, and it was really thick so I didn’t have to worry about that awkward space that sometimes happens between the line and the edge of the lid.
