ColorOn Pro Instant Eyeshadow

I got the opportunity to try these cool instant eyeshadow appliqués, and give you the lowdown. The sets ColorOn Pro gave me were a smoky eye set and "Dreams", bold colors with eyeliners. The best thing about these appliqués is that they pack A LOT of color. The dreams colors didn't especially work for me, but I loved the smoky eyes. I have found it difficult to layer with regular eyeshadow to get a deep smoky eye. I end up with grey everywhere and no definition. Because I have a deep set eye, I applied a highlighter shadow  to my brow before adding the appliqué.


I would recommend watching the instructional video on the company website instead of just using the written instructions. If you miss a spot, you can blend it out, or just apply more with a corner of the appliqué. The color is so concentrated, you can use them 2-3 times per eye. You MUST apply the setting powder all over the design, or it will feel wet and sticky and could run.
I would buy these again - they would be great to take on vacation. Instead of hauling all your makeup and brushes, just take some instant eyeshadow! You can buy them online at www.coloronpro.com or locally at the ColorOn kiosk in the Fashion Show Mall.



A side note: ColorOn, eyeliner appliqués would be a great addition to your line!
