Today I bring to you an amazing discovery which will take the hassle out from your whole eye makeup process. This product is a fantastic addition to every makeup kitty, doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or a pro. This review will be on the The Original Shadow Shields.
About The Product:
Being hailed as “The Best New Find of 2009” and as the “Red Carpet Secret Beauty Product,” Shadow Shields are the only product of its kind to truly eliminate messy “raccoon eyes” caused by applying eye makeup! While perfect for eye shadow fallout, Shadow Shields are also ideal for lash tinting, extensions and airbrush.
$10 for 30 count
My Experience with The Original Shadow Shields:
These shadow shields come in a pack of 30 which is good enough for 15 uses when used on both the eyes at a time. I sometimes find that if I have an eyeshadow that does not create a whole lot of fall out I can cut these shadow shields in half and just use them on my outer corners. The benefits of these shadow shields are that they help catch the fallout of eyeshadows, especially if you are using loose pigments, preventing your face makeup from getting messed up.
We all know the scotch tape trick that’s used to get a sharp, clean cat eye effect which is exactly what this product can do for you too. But the benefit here is that the adhesive of this product is not too tacky, hence does not tug on your delicate eye area like a scotch tape would. Also you can decide how much adhesive you need. The sticker behind is divided so you can peel just the outer corners, or the top part or the whole semicircle. The adhesive will still peel away some of your makeup so it is better to use this before applying your under eye concealer.
These shadow shields help me get a clean edge, no matter how messy I am with my blending. It also helps me get clean, sharp eyeliner and also helps my lower lash mascara not smudge while it is drying. How amazing is that! Whenever I use this, my eye makeup is guaranteed to look awesome. They are God sent when used to create smokey eyes. Also they are disposable, so no unhygienic mess.
Overall : A must-have. I highly recommend this product.
