I am going to be totally honest. I am not very big into wearing makeup. Stop gasping for a second and let me explain. I wore makeup when I was younger but could never get it to look as good as other women/girls that I had seen. Even now, I see ladies with awesome, and I mean awesome makeup.
Well I bought a lot of makeup and wasn't sure what colors to buy, how to apply it and could never get it to look right. I would look in the mirror after just applying my base, eyeliner, eyeshadow and blush. The base was not the right color for my skin tone, the eyeliner made me look like I had racoon eyes, the eyeshadow would be all up in the crease of my eye and the blush? Well I am sure you can imagine.{if not, picture bozo the clown}
After I had my son, I got a little lazy busy. So I didn't ever wear anything other than mascara. Until I heard about COVERGIRLS SMOKY SHADOWBLAST collection!
You pick your color, if yor not sure, you can get COLORMATCHED based on your complexion. They come in 6 different colors: Onyx Smoke, Silver Sky, Purple Plume, Bronze Fire, Citrus Flair and Tempest Blue.
Now when I first revceived the COVERGIRL SMOKY SHADOWBLAST I would have been absolutely left in the dark on how to apply it and would have probably looked like a street walker. Luckily for me and the rest of the world COVERGIRL put directions on the back of the product on how to use/apply the SHADOWBLAST!
It is double ended with a rounded tip which is to apply the "lighter" color from your brow line to your eyelash line, and the tapered end is in a "darker" color and is applied to the lash line and in the crease of your upper lid.

The awesome thing about the SHADOWBLAST is that you can do a more subtle daytime look and a more dramatic night-time look.
I didn't do the dramatic night-time look, just a subtle daytime;}

COVERGIRL also has SHINEBLAST Lipgloss to match your perfect shade or SHADOWBLAST!
The color that I received in the SHADOWBLAST & SHINEBLAST is the Purlple Plume.

Have you used SHADOWBLAST & SHINEBLAST? If not would you like to and in what colors would you choose? Do you have any tips or tricks that you could share with me about how you apply?
I'll share one with you that I just learnd. Apply a powder to your eyelids before and/or after your apply your eyeshadow and your eyeshadow will stay put!
Here is a video that shows you how to use the products together.
