My Experience with One Sweep Eyeshadow:
I was really happy to get this palette as there was no need of brushes or searching for eye tute for applying 3 shades in one go seriously! The moment I reached home I started experimenting with it. I just read all the instructions and tried my hands on eye shadow finally.. Just for good definition I applied Loreal foundation around the eye area and then swept some eye shadow applicator on left & right eyes one by one as per the given instructions and all set! Its really easy-peasy to sweep it over the eyes. And we get 3 shades in just one sweep over eyes yay!My palette contains all 3 shimmering shades, first one is light peach tending to skin color, then golden, and lastly Purple.
They have silky smooth texture and glide smoothly over eyes. I loved to observe their 6 hours staying power even on my oily skin. I must say the quality of eye shadow is really good as it didn’t cause irritation or any itching on my eyes, I was worried a little as its my only second chance of applying eye shadow since the day of my wedding. But Thankfully I didn’t experience any kind of problem while wearing them for more than 6 hours. One more thing which I noticed was that the colors look dark and pigmented on palette but on the eyes they are not as dark, you end up soft dramatic eyes. Initially it may be troublesome to get all 3 shades successfully on eyes in one go as it is standard size applicator and if your hands shake then you get no second chance to correct your mistake. But practice makes perfect, that’s how I finally achieve my playful look.It may not be perfect but it would still fetch comliments from my hubby and others. Nobody was able to judge if its just one sweep magic for a fresher to eyemakeup like me.. 😛
Lets sum up pros & cons:
Pros of One sweep Eyeshadow-Playful Brown Eyes :
• Unique applicator applies 3 shades in one sweep.
• Packaging comes with mirror & applicator.
• Soft & pigmented eye colors which smooth on eyes gracefully.
• It’s really easy to wear this eye shadow as per application instructions.
• Quality of eye shadow is too good, didn’t cause irritation on skin.
• Long staying power, up to 6 hours in my case.
• Its great choice for any skin type.
• No need of separate brush or other eye shadows to get 3 shades.
• It’s a wonderful choice for beginners in eye makeup.
Cons of One sweep Eyeshadow-Playful Brown Eyes :
• Colors on one single palette are limited, you have to compromise with the shades.
Right now I can hardly think of any con honestly. I have totally fallen for this eye shadow and going to grab my two other shades namely Natural Brown eyes & Playful All Eyes for more looks in an easy way.. I think I will try all shades of brown eyes till I get bored. I highly recommend them to every beginner especially who loves to wear eye shadow but don’t know how to wear them correctly! Though I did not achieve a professional look but still I am happy with what I did!
