“ Brand: QVS / Type: Make-up Smudger / Suitable for: Eye „
I purchased the QVS eye smudger from my local Superdrug store towards the end of last year. It cost me approximately £6-£7.00 and is made by a company called QVS, whom make a lot of make up accessories including different brushes, and things such as eye-lash curlers. I haven't seen this brand in boots, and have only seen it in Superdrug. I purchased the eye smudger because I wanted to create Smokey looking eyes. I'm not brilliant with creating lots of different effects using make up and I wanted something easy to use. I have previously used different eye-shadows and applicators in order to achieve Smokey eyes but none of them really give the effect I want. I wanted a Smokey eye look; how-ever I didn't want anything too heavy and dark around my eyes. I thought the eye smudger would be great to use with a black eye-liner pencil, and then I could smudge the eye-liner a little to create more of a Smokey look around my eyes.
The smudger comes in a plastic pouch which you can use to store the smudger. The smudger itself is approximately 10cm long so it has a nice length to it in order to make it easier to hold and use the product. The smudger is a dark grey/silver colour and has a metal silver bit on the end which holds the beige coloured sponge.The sponge end is rounded but does have a slight point on the end as well. I lined my eyes using a soft black eye-liner pencil. I then used the smudger to blend the eye-liner a little and make the lines less harsh looking. The smudger was easy to use and smudged the eye-liner around my eyes easily creating a Smokey look around my eyes. The sponge on the smudger is very soft but is also firm, so it doesn't fall out the holder. The smudger can be used with eye-liner and even eye-shadow to help create different looks. I have only ever used the smudger with eye-liner as I don't like my eye's looking too dark.
You can also wet the eye smudger before using it. This helps to create a darker and different look when using eye-liner and eye-shadow. I don't often use the eye smudger wet as I prefer using it dry. I regularly wash the smudger using a facial wash. I then leave it to air-dry before I use it again. If you wash the smudger regularly (like you should with all make up brushes), this keeps it in good condition and helps to make the product last longer. The product also becomes quite clean again and you will be surprised how much black comes off the sponge after using it to smudge your eye-liner.eye-shadow.
I love this product as it gives my eyes a different look, rather than just lining my eyes with eye-liner I can make it look a bit different. Ever since buying the smudger I haven't stopped using it when applying my make-up as I loved the look it creates, and it's quick and easy to use. I would highly recommend this product to others. I give it 5 out of 5 stars as its long lasting and helps to create different looks.
