As most of you know (well those who know me anyway) I am a HUGE fan of all things makeup. Â In the last year I did the unthinkable and cleaned out my makeup bags. Â I got rid of over 300 pieces of makeup. Â What can I say I have an addiction to things that are pretty. Â Well never fear I was left with hundreds of items still so I definitely am not in a real need of needing any items. Â However want and need are two totally different things.
I WANTED Cover Girl Smoky Eye Kit in Natural, yes I did and thanks to Collective Bias and Cover Girl I was able to get that. Â I was sent a Walmart Gift Card to purchase the kit with and I went right to purchasing, after all a girl with money to spend on make up is like a kid in a candy store (or for me at least). Â All we had to do is Whrrl our stories from purchase to use and then do a video tutorial using the kit, if we so wanted.
Now you know me and video go hand in hand so who was I to even think about passing up the video part of this experiment. Â I think secretly they all hoped I would want to be involved since I am such a ham. Â Hey who better to do a Cover Girl demonstration than the fun girl who dances around without a second thought. Â Though much to your disappointment I am sure, I did not dance while doing my tutorial. Â Liquid liner and myself do not mix well when I am standing still so add dancing into the mix and it’s a sure fire way to end myself up in the ER having an eye replacement. Â Wouldn’t be pretty and we are going for pretty with this kit people! Â Or HOT I like hot better so we are going for Hot!
Moving on. Â The first part of the experiment was simply to whrrl our purchases from either one of the participating Walmarts (the ones that actually carried the Cover Girl Smoky Eye Kits) or from Walmart.com. Â Now I had to do mine online because none of the stores around me had the kits. Â So without further ado, I take you to my purchase story:
Now I know you are all drooling over the Natural Kit that I selected because well it’s HOT, however there are two others. One that is a blue based Smoky Eye called Bold. The other is the “traditional” Smoky Eye look, a charcoal color called Glamourous. Now I think they are both absolutely gorgeous, but me being a bit worried I might mess something up I went the safe route. Sorry if you are looking for daring this time you are going to be disappointed. I was chicken plain and simple but the Natural kit is gorgeous too.
Now once my kit arrived I dove right in as if it were a cool pool on a sweltering day. In the package are 3 items, the dual eye color stick, liquid eyeliner (kill me now) and the mascara. I can’t really put into words my experience so I have two things for you to see it through. If you want a click glance at the process click through my whrrl story. However if you are looking for a laugh and want to watch me fumble my way through liquid liner watch the video tutorial…BEWARE though I do not offer refunds of the 9.5 minutes of your life you will spend laughing at me:
My Video Tutorial of Smoky Eyes:
It makes creating a Smoky Eye Look pretty much elementary. You can choose how drastic you make the Smokiness on yourself. Cover Girl Smoky Eye Kits are a perfect all in one for you, pick one (or all 3 up, which I will eventually do) at Walmart.com (or a Walmart near you if they carry them, not all of them do though). Now maybe next time I will go a little more drastic with my Smokiness and if I do you will be the first to see.
*I was supplied a gift card to purchase the kit with. There was no monetary compensation for this post. Opinions on the kit are that of myself and are not influenced by the reception of the gift card to purchase the kit with. Thank you to Collective Bias and Cover Girl for allowing me to have this opportunity.
