Review: ~~Shadow Shields~~



Hey Girls today i am gonna do review on an amzing product called shadow shields..these are just amazing...lemme introduce them with u then will share my own experience in the end :)

be fearless. be flawless. be smudge free :)

Shadow Shields:

Ever try to achieve that Red Carpet Smoky Eye, only to end up looking more like a raccoon than a fox? Well, look no further! Shadow Shields are the answer to flawless eye makeup application every time!
Before makeup application, apply these disposable, self-adhesive shields under your eyes to catch falling pigment, eliminating that all too familiar ‘raccoon eye’ side effect experienced during eyeshadow application. When you’re done; remove, toss and voila — you’re left with clean, smudge-free under eyes!
Major time savers, these lightweight shields are a convenient alternative to the usual powder-under-the-eye trick. With Shadow Shields, messes will be a thing of the past!

“If you love a quick, smudge-free smoky eye… then Shadow Shields are for you!” – Tia Dantzler, Makeup Artist to Jennifer Hudson & Pres. Barack Obama.






Creator:


Michelle Villanueva
Creative and bright, Michelle Villanueva is a makeup artist, mother and creator of makeup’s newest must-have tool, Shadow Shields! She oversees the operations, strategic direction, execution of sales, distribution, marketing and advertising initiatives for the company. This busy ingenue developed Shadow Shields to help save time and mess!
“Whether it was trying to get myself ready with twin boys running around, or making sure that my client was on time, I knew that I had to create something that would help every woman, every makeup artist save that extra 10-15 minutes it was taking to touch up the mess of eyeshadow fallout!,” says Villanueva.
Michelle has worked as a freelance makeup artist in Southern California since 2003, specializing in fashion and corporate photo shoots, as well as bridal and special event makeup. She holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree from California State University, Long Beach.

Helpful Tips:

  • Remove only top corners to apply. If more adhesion is needed, remove entire top strip.
  • Application of shield doesn’t have to be directly on lash line- it can be applied under the bulge of the eye or wherever most comfortable.
  • When applying shield, allow backing to crease-it will form a small lip, helping to catch the fallout!
Price:

$9.99 30 shields

My Experience:
. I have a lot of  loose pigments which have fallout but only on application, in part, probably due to my own application deficiencies. (I'm not great with some dry pigment products). These shields deal with it perfectly. Initially, I just allowed for the pigment to fall on my cheeks, but it was too time consuming trying to clean up without making a streaky mess on the rest of my face, as they clung and didn't brush off easily. These shields work perfectly in situations like that, and are even better for those of you who use loose glitter and have problems with fallout. Additionally, they're ideal for people who have end up with mascara under their eyes, as the stray mascara would go on the shields and not on the skin. They have three different adhesive strips in the back so you can use them each more than once! I'm addicted to the smoky eye look, so this is great for all the dark shadows These are excellent.

~~Review Liz Earle Deep Cleansing Mask~~

Hi beauties i am gonna review Liz Earle Deep cleansing mask....i have been using this from last week i used it twice..n i am becoming a fan of this mask..its just amazing :)







About this product:Problem: oily, combination and problem-prone skin.

Solution: this highly concentrated clay and manuka honey mask helps draw out impurities and excess oil to leave skin balanced, calm and clear.

Smooth over face and neck as an all over face treatment, or to target specific problem areas.

Naturally active ingredients include green clay to draw out impurities, soothing manuka honey and propolis and rose-scented geranium to help tone and balance.

How to Use:Apply after cleansing skin, smooth a generous layer of the mask over face and neck, avoiding eyes, lips and hairline. Leave on for 5 – 10 minutes.

Wipe away residue with thoroughly rinsed sponges. Splash face with cool water. Use as often as needed: either as an all over face treatment, or to target specific blemishes or problem areas.

For best results follow with Instant Boost Skin Tonic and Skin Repair Moisturiser.

Ingredients:The ingredients in this product are:
Aloe barbadensis (aloe vera) leaf juice, Kaolin, Mel (honey), Montmorillonite, Glycerin, Glyceryl stearate, Propolis wax, Hectorite, Alcohol denat., Pelargonium graveolens (geranium) oil, Decyl glucoside, Ethylhexylglycerin, Geraniol, Citronellol, Linalool, Xanthan gum, Lactic acid, Polyaminopropyl biguanide, Phenoxyethanol, Benzoic acid, Dehydroacetic acid.

Packaging:This face mask comes with two sponges for wiping the mask off  in a lovely zip up bag just like the Cleanse and Polish Starter Kit.

My Verdict:The mask smells so nice..i used tiny amount to cover my whole face and left it on for 10 minutes,then i used one of the sponges, soaked in water to wipe it all away. It’s a clay based mask so it does dry to a hard texture.I love these sponges. They make removing the face mask so much easier and it literally takes a few seconds.my skin looked a lot brighter and more even toned after using this mask.

Thnks for readimg
