L'Oreal The One Sweep Eye Shadow 309 Playful for Green Eyes

It looks like an easy way to give your eyes a tri-color look! No blending required! But is it as easy as it seems?

L'Oreal The One Sweep Eye Shadow claims to "provide fool proof results every time". I do not 100% agree with that. On my first attempt I ended up getting this on my left eye REALLY well... the right eye it all smushed together looking less than glam. As with anything, this product will require practice.

Here are product pics, swatch pics, and eye pics. The eye pic ended up being my best attempt (I really wish I would have taken a pic of my first good eye attempt..ugh), though it still remains uneven and I would not go out in public like this.






The shades are gorgeous, they play well together... obviously I don't have green eyes but the shades suited me. I wasn't impressed with the pigment, or the application of this product. It could definately could stand to be better before given the description of "fool proof".

Maybe it's just the Playful Green Eyes that work like this? Musings of a Muse also did a review on this item and didn't have any luck with it either, but did with the Playful for All Eyes.

I'm usually impressed with L'Oreal, so I think I'll try this product again, perhaps with something darker that would show off more pigment and perhaps go on a bit smoother. I'll keep you updated ;)

You can go to L'Oreal's website for step-by-step instructions on how to use this product.

Prices vary. I picked up two (one to play with and one for the giveaway) when they were buy 1 get 1 half off at Rite-Aid. Look for coupons in your ads and specials at places like Ulta or your local Drugstores.

PS - if you have purchased this product, what were your experiences... and if you got it to work PLEASE share your tips!

EDIT - YouTube Review from emilynoel83 - really great review!! Thank you for pointing it out, TrailerHood Chic!!
