There seems to be a million different products out on the market that are supposed to be tailored to your eye color so that you *pop* which, in my opinion is the worst make-up term ever. Making your eyes *pop* is about as obnoxious as you telling everyone you are a pretty pale princess. We need a new term for a color that makes your eyes bright.
Anyway, almost all the mass-market lines have these “tailored” eye shadows and mascaras. The latest contender is L’Oreal Double Extend Eye Illuminator. It has special sparkly top coat that is supposed to enhance your eye color and make your lashes longer. Oh no, that is not all…see the topcoat brush is one of those medieval torture device brushes that is supposed to DOUBLY impress you with its impressiveness.
Double Extend is an OK mascara; I would never use it alone. I do use a coat of the mascara and powder sparkles on top of my Maybelline Falsies and it looks really good. I even like the powdery top coat because when I look up all day it’s like I live in a magical snow pixie land (I have issues). What I just do not understand is why they picked an auburn brown color to enhance brown eyes?
Did I miss the day in art class about the complementary colors? Wouldn’t a steel grey or navy blue color do a much better job of enhancing brown eyes? Am I missing something?
Anyway, I suggest to get the same effect grab some of your favorite sparkly mineral make-up and have at it. This product is just blah …like brown eyes when you try to enhance them with brown.
