Smokin’ Dogs!

With all these rainy days recently and winter right around the corner, it’s time to perfect the smoky eye look to bring out the dramatic in these colder and darker days.  Now, one can’t do this without the right eye shadow, and I have found a wonderful new product line that will help you create bold eyes easily. 

Bare Escentuals has recently launched Buxom Stay-There Eyeshadow, a line of 10 shimmery shadows that are so incredibly vibrant with wonderful, saturated color that merely applying this eye shadow will already brighten your dreary or upcoming darker days.  Unlike other eye shadows where the color in the palette doesn’t pop like it does in the cavity, rest assured that you will get the pigment intensity you want with this formula.  Its plush and vivid color has such a lightweight, spongy texture so it’s in your control whether you dial up the color or tone it down.  Plus, it’s waterproof so it will stay put on your eyelid like it should!

Moreover (and actually my favorite reason and the reason why I bought this eye shadow in the first place), each shade is named after a dog breed.  So many cosmetic companies align themselves with a charity these days, but Bare Escentuals is making a $20,000 charitable contribution to Canine Companions for Independence – a non-profit organization that enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing highly trained assistance dogs.  As mom to my dog Buster, this cause absolutely resonates with me!  So it’s a win-win: give back to a canine charity and receive gorgeous eyes!

Here are the 10 shades.  Ahem… Yorkie is missing!  We’ll need to let Bare Escentuals know!  Of course, to get the perfect smoky eye look, I’d combine Black Lab and Pug and add a little Chihuahua for pizazz.  Available exclusively at Sephora for $17.00.

Golden Retriever – vibrant copper red
