I'm not sure where to put this review, I just bought both eye kits from Alexis Vogel through QVC and am very impressed.
One eye kit came with an instructional booklet showing how to get the natural, career, cat and smoky eye look (very easy to do with these instructions) and a new, updated, better shammy tool and a really great quality dual-ended brush that makes application a breeze. And a nice carrier with a magnet closing thing to carry all of it in which is very classy looking.
The other kit I ordered had the dual brown/black cake eyeliner, dual eyelining pencil with wakeup (flesh toned color) and eye popper (black) for lining inside the eyes and a chubbier pencil with a really neat shimmery coppery brown (very natural looking) and a black (but soft black) end for lining outside the eyes.
There was also a dual eyeshadow, one a brownish coppery shade that brought out the blue in my eyes, one a mauvey/slate sort of shade that brought out the green in my eyes. Also there was a terrific mascara included and a nice carrying case for these items.
I can't believe what good quality these cosmetics are. I swear I don't want to bother buying eyeshadows anywhere else now. Very beautiful highly pigmented, totally wearable colors that will flatter everyone.
The pencils were sooo incredibly pigmented and stayed on all day. I used to have problems with the inner eyelid rimming, the pencil would wear off, but this stuff stays put. And the black is such an intense black it makes my eyes pop like no other pencil I've ever tried. The wakeup is equally pigmented and stays on like magic.
Same with the cake eyeliner - incredibly pigmented. Makes other cake eyeliners look like faint washes of color.
Wow. I can't say enough good about these kits.
And AV makeup can look VERY natural - have a photo of closeup of my eyes. One photo is from last year, with the "heavy" smoky look, false eyelashes, lots of black. That is the look that most are familiar with with AV. But this recent photo closeup of my eyes, shows that you can get a very very natural look as well.
So don't be afraid of this makeup because you think you have to look like a Playboy bunny - you don't have to wear it that way! It's just really well-pigmented makeup, that's all.
when you apply it it doesn't show that"sexy sparkle" it looks so crappy and messy. if you want what alexis claimed this product can give you, get MAC's black tied-very beautiful it's black and has silver sparkles but when u apply it it isn't too shiny,it's just right verrry nice and sexy,many celebs use this as well !
perfect cat eyes! you can use any black though but this one is great!
I love this also it has a very sexy look. And nice drama at night very sexy!
This is a dark black eyeshadow, with shimmer in it. Great for a dramatic evening look. This did not come in the Light Kit, but was separate in the Nightime kit. Did not smudge on me at all, very long lasting.
