Instant Eye Shadow Sheet


What's that music I'm hearing?

Holly E. Thomas reviewed this new Avon product in today's Washington Post as follows:

    Avon Instant Eye Shadow Sheets

    As an eye shadow hoarder, I've got a collection that would make even Roy G. Biv jealous. I know the secret to a great smoky eye is to blend — and blend, and blend some more. And I have a veritable arsenal of brushes, from teensy to fluffy to slanted to spongy. So I approached Avon's mapped-out, rub-on eye shadow papers with a bit of skepticism. After all, I'm a beauty tester. Shouldn't my abilities be more advanced than color-by-number?

    I pressed the paper sheet over my eyes, rubbed with my fingertips and peeked in the mirror, and — surprise! — it worked. Well, one disclaimer: At first I looked like a scary clown. But after a few seconds of blending the soft pink, dove gray and plum shades with my index finger, I had a simple, flattering look that was perfect for work.

    It's not rocket science, that's for sure. But for your morning routine, why should it be?


14 sheets in any of 8 colors: $9.
