I tried out an Eyes By Design Kit sent to me by the Home Shopping Network. The Kit I tried, the Discovery Set, included a mini palette of four eye shadow shades formulated for blue eyes (there are also kits for green, brown, and hazel eyes), mascara, an eye cream, and a primer.
The items turned out to be of great quality. The eye shadow shades were perfectly suited for blues eyes, and the shadow wore very well, with no creasing and good color payoff. The primer was one of the better eye primers I have tried, and the eye cream is a nice thick cream appropriate for night wear.
What I liked best, however, was the mascara. Eyes By Design Volumizing Mascara does a great job of both thickening and lengthening, without a clump in sight. Indeed, I even got sloppy and did not wipe the brush before applying (this really is a no-no) on several occasions and still did not get clumps. That is pretty impressive!
An Eyes By Design kit is featured in episode two of HSN’s series Faces of Beautiful You. In that episode, Nicki and Hallie marvel at Smith’s speedy preparation time for her big interview at a luxury spa. To see the kit in action take a look at the series!
