This is long overdue…but I wanted to share about one type of product I really like incorporating in to my daily routine.
The shadow pencil.
Specifically today it is about the CoverGirl Flamed Out Shadow Pencils that I have received through Beauty United over the last few months.
These pencils go on with slight cooling sensation, which is quite interesting for a shadow pencil. They have different finishes, so if you are looking in to a specific type, it is always good to do some research in googling. In any case, I have these three in my collection so far.
I always use a primer on my eyelid, as I have oily skin. I find that when applied over a primer, these wear quite well, lastly pretty much the day, fading slightly at the end. Which isn’t a huge deal by then. What is also great about them is that you can build upon the colour, even after a few hours later. So having one in your makeup bag could allow you to do small touch ups if you needed it.
One thing I wish they would do is print the names on the pencil. I can never remember numbers very well, so it makes things difficult.
I liked using Silver Flame as an all over eyelid colour. I apply it right from the pencil, and then blend out the edges usually with my finger (sometimes with a brush). I like using Crystal Flame as a brightener for the inner eye, or even as a highlight for the brow, if you needed the extra oomph for a special occasion.
