Eye Shadow- One size fits all?

picture-5.pngThere is a company out there called ColorOn which has a product that they claim will give you instant professional eyeshadow application with a single process. The idea of having a “press on” eye shadow intrigued me to the point that I invested $30 and got myself a box.When my product arrived, I called my girlfriend up to come over and try it. She is a professional make up artist, I figured we would have some fun. So over cosmos, we played with the eye shadow. We started with clean lids and followed the directions to a “T”. I used the Everyday Neutrals since I figured, how bad could those colors be? My girlfriend thought this whole process was funny and from the start tried discouraging from conducting my little experiment, let alone invest $30 bucks.Being a bit hesitant about using this product to begin with, my friend applied the pink and chocolate combo to her lid using the lighter application method described. I followed her lead and did likewise. I placed the oval disc on my lash line and began patting the applicator gently with my finger, then began peeling it back. I blended it a bit, once it was on my lid.As soon as I removed the disc, my friend turned around to see me and we both broke out in hysterics (to the point of almost peeing ourselves). We looked like we were circus clown rejects. The shadow was all over our brows and covered our lashes. I do not think I have ever laughed so hard in my life.You can bet I was not laughing when I tried to get that stuff off my face. It was very, very difficult to remove. Here a seasoned makeup pro started freaking out. You can imagine how I felt then, the panic struck. We just could not get that stuff off our eyes! We left my house and went to hers where she had some ultra, heavy duty cosmetic wipes that she had left over from a soap opera she did makeup on.Finally, with clean lids, I realized…I should have listened to my friend at the get go and not let my intrigue get the best of me. But we did have a great laugh before the panic struck, despite the $30 investment!
