Eyeshadow Fail

Every Wednesday I try to write about a product I’ve been using lately that I either want to marry or burn in a fiery furnace (I thought the extremes might wake you up).

To give you a hint on how I feel about this weeks product…there will be no engagement pictures, rings or Pinterest-perfect bridesmaids.

I love love my Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow in Bad to the Bronze. In fact I wear it almost everyday. Sometimes alone, sometimes layered with other colors. It gives the perfect sheen and gets me out the door very quickly.

But its evil stepsister the Cream Gel Shadow in Tough as Taupe is not so perfect.

I’m currently in the honeymoon phase of a relationship with the color taupe (all these wedding references, what’s up with that?). Seriously though, I love it. So when I found a shadow in the same color, I thought…Yes please!

Unfortunately this color comes off more ashy gray than it does creamy taupe. #Fail. Maybe it will work with your skin color, but if you’re at all the pale white with peachy undertones kind-of-gal that I am, it’s a no go.

The one thing that has saved the color from being thrown in the fiery furnace (which I don’t actually have on hand, by the way) is that it looks good when paired with Bad to the Bronze. Really I can’t think of a color Bad to the Bronze can’t help with. So go get you some of that.
