If you’re totally over lugging everything and the kitchen sink around in your purse (and that includes your bloated makeup bag), can I just say I feel your pain? Here’s what I had in my over-the-shoulder boulder holder today (cat not included)…
Do you carry enough eyeliner/eyeshadow in your purse to adorn a platoon of sassy drag queens? If so, then it’s time for a makeup intervention.
Streamline that makeup bag with Hard Candy’s newest edition to their permanent line, the $6 Hot Smudge Cream Eyeliner/Smudge Shadow Duos for spring/summer 2010 (available at Wal-Mart).
Six bucks gets ya two creamy colors that work as both eyeliners and eyeshadows, along with a dual-ended brush for lining and smudging. And get this: the brush actually works! I usually throw out (or set aside) the brushes that accompany products because 9/10 times they aren’t great, but this one lays down precise lines with ease.
With six fun and edgy color combos to choose from, each Hot Smudge comes calling in a skinny, sleek case perfect for tucking into teeny makeup bags.
If you’re new to cream eyeshadows, you’re in for a treat. Hot Smudge’s soft, malleable texture offers a lot of control — it’s more forgiving than liquid liner, so you can take your time smudging and lining. This flexibility allows for lots of different looks, too, from sharp lines to smoked-out drama.
Some cream liners disappear faster than my youth (I’m talking to you, Urban Decay Ink for Eyes!), but Hot Smudge does a pretty good job staying put.
I’ve been wearing Stunt Double, which comes with a shimmery purple and blackish brown, for the past few days.
The colors don’t stick around for squat along my waterline, but if I remember to pop a primer on my lids, they hang onto the lash line for a good six-to-eight hours (minimal fading). NOTE: a little bit of product migrates into my crease, but if your lids aren’t as oily as mine, it shouldn’t be a problem. Despite a couple minor quibbles, I think Hot Smudge’s $6 price makes it totally right. Makeup and Beauty Blog: A
