I was recently given the opportunity to try L’Oreal Paris’ One Sweep Eye Shadow and Double Extend Eye Illuminator Mascara as a Bzz Agent.  

I have to say, I can’t say enough about the One Sweep Eye Shadow.  The uniqueness of the applicator makes layering the different colors of eye shadows extremely simple.  It truly is one sweep of the applicator on the shadow color pad and then one sweep to the lids. I found there to be no problem of the applicator not fitting on my lids.  The applicator’s design was a comfortable fit in hand, and to the eye, when applying.

The Double Extend Eye Illuminator Mascara was very easy to use as well.  The mascara applicator is double ended…another unique design.  One end supplies the under coat mascara and the other end supplies the top coat mascara.  The first step is to apply the darker end you see in the picture.  I did not have very good luck with my lashes not clumping together with the first step.  The second step is to apply the lighter color you see on the bottom.  This seemed to go on easy; however, my lashes were still clumpy.  Once my daughter saw my eyes all done she said, “Mom, you’ve got glitter all around your eyes.” Followed by, “I don’t like your eyes mom.”  I was really bummed she didn’t like my eyes, but she was being honest and honesty is always the best policy.  I haven’t given up on the Eye Illuminator Mascara, I see myself using the bottom coat more often, and saving the top coat for special occasions, especially at night.
