Sassy and Showy

Recently, a family friend asked for drugstore brand eye shadow recommendations.  She wanted to a teal or turquoise look for a wedding she will be attending in mid-summer.  I instructed her to check out the L’Oreal HiP Duos in Sassy and Showy.  I love the teal shimmery side of Showy and the greyish-taupe side of Sassy.  While the HiP duos tend to be pigmented I recommend  using a colored eye shadow base (MAC Delft paint pot or L’Oreal HiP Color Truth Cream Eyeliner in Teal)

In the FOTD below, I used:


  • Makeup For Ever HD Primer #6
  • Estee Lauder Double Wear in Truffle/Rich Ginger
  • Natural MSF – Dark


  • MAC Matte Gel
  • MAC Delft Paint Pot
  • L’Oreal HiP Duo – Showy (Teal side)
  • L’Oreal HiP Duo – Sassy (Gray-Taupe side)
  • MAC Black Tied e/s
  • L’Oreal HiP Duo – Adventurous (Tan side)
  • L’Oreal HiP Color Truth Cream Eyeliner -Black
  • Barry M Kohl Pencil – Black
  • Max Factor 2000 Calorie Extreme Lash

I think the Showy (lid color) is similar to MAC Shimmermoss, Talent Pool and Too Faced Nepture.  Plus, the other side of the duo is a matte navy blue, definitely works well together.

Keep It Glossy,
