Back when I went to pick up the Electrified duo, L'Oreal products were buy one get one half off at Ulta. Another duo that caught my eye was Sassy 208. I picked that one up as my halfer, but I'm not sure it's as much of a love as Electrified....

What the L’Oreal Website has to say about HiP Studio Secrets Professional Metallic Duos:

Discover the secret for bold, metallic color with a luminous finish. HiP Studio Secrets Professional Metallic Duos are expertly coordinated to create an edgy, shimmery look. The rich, super-blendable color glides on evenly for hours of captivating, crease-resistant wear.

Sassy is a stunning duo of taupe and a deep smoky teal.


The pigment of the taupe side of Sassy is FABULOUS, but the smoky teal side is just okay. The teal didn't show up well in my crease, but when worn on the lid it was decent.

Both shades were soft and smooth, and wore nicely on the eye (even though the taupe ate the teal when I applied it in the crease lol).

To get the EOTD look below, you’ll need to do the following – apply a layer of L’Oreal Bronzed Taupe 24hr Infallible Eye Shadow to the lid using your pointer finger (this will serve as your base). Taking a firm brush (I used the MAC 239) I patted 2 layers of the Taupe side all over the lid and into the crease. Using a firm pencil brush (I used the MAC 219) deposit the Smoky Teal side into the crease. Picking up some more color on the pencil brush pat the shade into the outer V. Picking up a blending brush (I used the MAC 226) get a bit more of the Smoky Teal color and blend the eye. To highlight the eye I took a fluffy brush (any will do) and applied Le Metier de Beaute True Color Eye Shadow in Naked.

The top eye liner is MAC Siahi Fluidline, and a bit of Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Liner in Stray Dog on the outer lower lash line. The mascara used for this look was 2 coats of MAC Plush Lash.

L’Oreal HIP Metallic Shadows retail for $7.99 each (this is the MSRP price, pricing will vary based on the retailer) and are available at drugstores as well as Ulta. I got mine at Ulta during a buy one get one half off deal, so be sure to check your local ads for deals!
