I hope you're not all freaked out about the volume of eye closeups on this blog lately. With that said...

I'm a big fan of Tarte Cosmetics, as they're one of the few companies that really give good product and good packaging. Both are important to me.

Creased, smudged eye makeup is the bane of my existence. (Actually, it is one of MANY banes of my existence, along with taking the garbage out and trying to get perfectly smooth legs that last longer than a day.) So when Tarte's PR maven, Candace, emailed me about their new summer collection, I knew I had to try the Lock & Roll Eyeshadow Duo.

Step 1: Brush a sheer wash of the Vitamin E-enriched cream shadow on lids-wait about 10 seconds for it to dry.

Step 2: Tap rollerball to actuate, roll the matching loose shadow directly on top-- the binding agents in the cream shadow will lock with the powder, creating a crease-free, budgeproof finish.

Plus, it's waterproof. This I had to try.

Candace sent me the product in a couple of different shades, but the first I tried was the lovely, pale olive green called Patina. It's a very wearable color, which I can't say for a lot of cream shadows. Better yet, it actually does what it's supposed to do, which is stay put on lids, all day and all night.

Even better, Lock & Roll comes in sets of two, so you get Patina bundled with Bronze, all for $28. Go buy some, and hopefully Tarte will introduce even more colors for this solid product. Thanks, Candace!
