Smokey eyes are one of my absolute favorite eye looks, but I tend to overdose on them. My idea of a perfect smokey eye means no pink showing in the waterlines, so I usually come away from application all red and watery and generally looking like I'm either high or hungover, or both. So that's always kind of a deterrent to doing a 'real' smokey eye. But sometimes...you just want a smokey eye, black waterline, red sensitivity and all.
I came out of the bathroom after putting this one on (yes, I frequently do just one eye) and my husband was like 'You have another color to put on, don't you? Or are you just going for...black?' *snort*
Anyway, here it is!

A couple more blurbs:
- Man, Ulta overhauled their single shadows and I gotta tell you, they're pretty awesome! I picked up 4 with my 20% off coupon. They're $7 each. That Milk Chocolate is a lovely smooth matte. You gotta check out the shadow display next time you go, it's pretty impressive.
- Shout out to the $3 Essence Black Mania mascara, what a surprisingly awesome mascara for so little money! I love it. It's got an awesome Maybelline Falsies-type spoon brush, and the formula is crazy black. It smears a bit on me but looks so hot applied I almost don't care. $3!
