Eye Shadow that Lasts!

Hello Beauty Junkies-
It has been a while since I have written as I have been in search of a good, reasonably priced eye shadow. I finally found one on the Revlon rack at Walgreen's.
It is called ColorStay Mineral Eye Shadow. It comes in a bunch of different color combos, but I bought Tiger's Eye. It is a domed circle divided into three colors so that you can mix them all together or apply each separately. It doesn't come with a sponge applicator which is fine by me, because those usually stink anyway. And then they get all yucky and germy after using every day. I prefer just to apply with my finger or maybe you are good with brushes. The color does last a long time and because it is made with minerals, it is supposed to be better for your delicate eyelid skin. It was about $8.99 so it is definitely worth a try!

  1. woo hoo! great timing! Walgreens had a B1G1 so I didn't REALLY have to make a decision. I did buy a new brush. 5.99 for a bamboo brush---much better than the $$$$$$$$$$$ brushes I bought from Bobbie Brown. Love this shadow for everyday! thanks for the suggestion. Have you tried the "Jane" gel eyliner yet? One of my total faves.
