Eye Shadow...The Easy Way!

logo_coloron"Why do girls wear makeup?"

My husband asked my that question when we first started dating. He was 18. I was 16. He told me that girls looked much better without the "paint." For the most part, I agreed.

I wore very little make-up then. And I still wear very little - although I'm finding that a touch of lipstick, a twirl of mascara, and a hint of tinted moisturizer can do wonders for my appearance now that I'm getting "older."

coloron professional instant eye shadowThat said, there are occasions when I enjoy "going glam" for an evening. Only one problem: I am not a make-up artist and things like eye shadow confuse me. So I have two options - I can call my sister Kathryn (a beauty queen and aspiring cosmetologist) OR I can use a ColorOn Professional Instant Eye Shadow kit.

"These are single-use, hygienic, hypoallergenic applicators that require no makeup skills, no brushes or secondary applicators. Imagine an eye shadow that is waterproof, crease-proof, and long-wearing that transfers to the eyelid with just a touch."

Did you catch the part about "no makeup skills?" These applicators just scream my name. I tried them and I have to say they ARE super easy (just stick the applicator on the lid, pull it off, do a little touch-up blending, and add a little powder...) and the results are quite nice. You can make your look as dramatic or as "natural" as you like with just a little blending.

The kits, which include five pairs of appliques, retail for $25 at sephora.com.

  1. Wow!!! I've never heard of this! I love eyeshadow! I know how to put it on (I learned at a counter) but this seems so easy and fun! The colors are awesome. Smoky is screaming my name! : )

  2. That's just way cool. haha! I'd love to try a few of those things. I'm lazy when it comes to eyes. I curl lashes and apply mascara most of the time, but if I'm really good, I'll do a one color swoosh. :-)

  3. I know I don't apply my makeup the "right way" because I don't spend the time on myself. This is a great way to do it fast. Thanks so much!


  4. I love this concept of applying eyeshadow.I
    don't do this well at all.Please enter me and
    thanks for the giveaway

  5. I am so excited about this product. Putting eyeshadow on is so frustrating. I'm clueless as to what looks good and what shade goes where. It couldn't be easier with this product.

  6. Oh wow that looks so cool! Im really not so good at putting on eye shadow, it always ends up crooked! Or I have way too much or not enough on either side!

  7. Oh, I could soooo use this. I didn't know such a thing existed. I've NEVER been able to put on eye-shadow correctly. I don't know why I have such issues with it, as I see so many people put theirs on perfectly!

  8. I love makeup but hubby doesn't care if I wear it or not. It makes me feel better when I have it on, so I wear it.

  9. OMGosh these look so great! I don't wear makeup often either, I do have an old standby routine that looks good but it's not very 'glam' and sometimes you just want glam!

  10. I confess that I have had the same eyeshadow for about 3 years. It's been used twice... well, maybe three times. I would love to try something new that would be easier to apply and not give me that "playing with mommy's make up" look.

  11. I am quite clueless when it comes to good eyeshadow application ~ I would love to win one of these! I usually just put some on my lids and some on the crease and the top and go. Yikes.

  12. I rarely have a good "eye" for putting on shadow - it's either too much or not enough. This would help out a lot!

  13. I love to try new things. The technique of applying eyeshadow is one of the hardest for me, this would be great to use.

  14. I am very much interested in this concept. I am completely inept at putting on eyeshadow and achieving this kind of professional result.

  15. This is a great invention. Why did they not come up with this sooner? With double the effort, me putting on eyeshadow only winds up looking half as good as this product, so I would love to try this.

  16. I feel naked with out makeup although I don't wear much - like so many other woman, I find it really hard to apply it right, or even find the right color. I wanted to be a make-up artist but I'm glad I went with a different field. I would either never have succeeded...or I would have learned how to do it correctly. I guess I'll just never know.

  17. What fun!~I like the precious metals or the flaunt~the exotic cracks me up. I never can get the "look" that they have in the pictures so I appreciate all the help!

  18. This looks so neat. What a great idea for when you're in a hurry, but want to look like you took a lot of time. I like that it can be as dramatic or faint as you like.

  19. I'm a mess when it comes to makeup application. This gives me hope that one day I might actually look put together!

  20. I just saw these at Sephora yesterday and it piqued my interest. I love playing around with make-up! My sister-in-law is a professional make-up artist and has taught me a few things, otherwise I would have no clue.

    My husband loves it when I have no make-up on, with my hair in a pony tail. It is a great reason not to do my hair:)

  21. I am technically challenged when it comes to applying more than one thing to my eyes. This kit looks like a lot of fun and I'd love to try it. It would give me an excuse to ask my husband to take me out somewhere, lol.

  22. My aunt was just complaining that she wanted to learn how to do a smoky eye! I heard about these, and would love to get some to give to her.

  23. Hmmm, that looks interesting. I also wear very little makeup and know next to nothing about applying it properly.

  24. Now that eyeshadow looks incredible! :) I'm so excited about this because I can never get mine to blend when I go out on the town (which is very infrequently) these days! :) Thanks so much!

  25. I wear makeup almost everyday. I feel naked without it. I would like to see a picture of you with the makeup on to see how it really works? This is a great giveaway. Thanks!

  26. Another makeup challenged person! I would love to try this product. I have had a makeover once and loved the way she did my eyes, but I have never been able to do the same for myself. I would love to have these for the occasional night out. The tropic is beautiful. Thanks for another great giveaway.

  27. Wow! I love makeup but I have yet to master putting it on. I blame it on having only brothers growing up and no sisters to teach me!

  28. I am make-up challenged too. I once had a friend give me a beautiful makeover. All my girlfriends were oohing and ahhing but when I went home, my husband didn't even notice!

  29. Ooh, that's exciting! I know a little bit about application, but I wear eye shadow so infrequently that I have very few shades to choose from (it's not worth it to spend money on something I wear once or twice a year). I'd love to try these. By the way, my hubby is the same way; he wonders why I bother with even the ONE thing I put on, mascara. Which I don't leave the house without...
