The only drugstore eyeshadow that I will use.

I usually stay away from drugstore beauty products but last week as I was nosing around CVS while waiting for a prescription to be filled I saw that Loreal's HIP cosmetic line was buy one get one free. Since I am not one to pass up a sale I picked up 2 of the eyeshadow duos. There weren't many colors left but I managed to find 2 that I liked.

The color set 'Playful' was something that I usually wouldn't buy, when it comes to eye shadows I always buy crazy colors. I am glad I got this one though because since I bought it I have been wearing it almost everyday.

The Claim (from Loreal):

- Made up of a micro-fine formula that allows for even, true color deposit.

- Compact includes an applicator and mirror so shadows can be applied and touched up on the go.

- Rich color paired with wearable neutrals so anyone can get the look.

- More color and More fun.

The Reality:

- The color goes on like expensive products. Goes on smooth and has nice color saturation.

- There is not a lot of product in the container so it will run out faster than expensive brands.

- The neutral shades that come in the duo are perfectly acceptable for everyday wear.

- The applicator that comes with the eyeshadow sucks. Don't use it, unless you are like 12 years old.

- More color, more fun? Yes, eyeshadow is pretty darn fun and eyes are making a comeback in the beauty world this spring so get those peepers ready.

That purple color looks fierce! I'm always a little scared of drugstore brands.. but I'll give this one a try!

L'Oreal creates some of my favorite drugstore products, and these shadows are on top of the list. Highly pigmented, long-lasting and crease-resistant, HiP eyeshadows should be in every makeup collection!
