“A new trick in your beauty arsenal, Butter London’s Glazen Eye Gloss is a breakthrough eye shadow that delivers a wet look shine, without being wet. This playful, pudding-like texture applies like a gel, but dries like a powder and lasts all day”
I am not going to lie these were very strange to me when I first opened them. I thought “an eye shadow that jiggles? Whatttt?” But the moment I swatched them I gasped! I absolutely love metallic shades for the eyes. I prefer just one swipe of a pretty shimmer that is going to give me a glamorous look without the hassle of spending a ton of time on my eyes.
When you dip your finger in (I just felt more comfortable using my fingers) its a strange consistency but its fun! I just started to pat on my eye and watched this Glazen Eye Gloss work its magic. It applies like a gel and dries like a powder so it takes a bit to get use to. I have tried this without a eye shadow primer since it states its crease resistant but like all eye shadows it creased on me and works best in my opinion with an eye shadow primer. They were a bit hard to blend with my finger but again it takes a bit to get use to working with this texture.
Would I recommend these? Absolutely! If you are into shimmer and or metallic eye looks you need at lease one.

After watching a ton of YouTube videos and reading Blog/Instagram posts, I decided I should do the 20 facts about me tag. I absolutely loved learning about all of you so I hope you enjoy this! Lets just jump right in……
My name is Vanessa not beautyproductsaremycardio – lol!
I grew up in Elmwood Park a suburb right outside of Chicago and the home of the best Italian Beef the Chicago area has to offer but if you ask my Husband he will tell you I am bias. Whatever!
My Husband and I met in Children’s Theater class at Northeastern Illinois University 12 years ago.
I am mostly Italian and my husband is Palestinian. We have two kids. Our daughter is 3 and our son is 10 months
My Bachelors and Masters Degree are both in Communications and I studied Flamenco Dance as my minor.
My passion for dance started at the age of 9. I have studied Jazz, Tap, Ballet, Modern, Belly Dancing and Flamenco
I was allowed to wear makeup off the stage at the age of 12. My mom took me to the drugstore the summer going into Jr. High. We bought mainly Cover Girl. To this day if I open a Cover Girl blush the smell instantly brings me back to that moment.
For my 16th Birthday I was introduced to MAC by receiving a black MAC makeup bag filled with blush, eyeliner, lipliner and lipglass. Our relationship is now almost 20 years strong!
Blush is my ultimate beauty weakness. I believe this obsession started because as a dancer my mom would tell me I need more blush for the stage….like ALL THE TIME. So I started to experiment with blush and the rest is history (picture evidence below HA)
I worked in Disney World for a college internship and it changed me forever. If you are in college you MUST look into this program. I worked Retail in Magic Kingdom.
Family is EVERYTHING!!!!
Audrey Hepburn is my style icon.
I started my blog 7 months ago, 2 days after returning to my full time job from being on Maternity Leave. It was something I had been thinking about for over a year and all of a sudden it all came together and Beauty Products Are My Cardio was born.
I am an Academic Advisor by day and taught Public Speaking for 5 years at a Community College here in Chicago.
I drink coffee…however 95% of the time its decaf. I just truly love the taste. Tall Decaf Non Fat No Whip Mocha.
Next to blush chocolate is my other weakness.
I HEART Pasta. Nothing beats my dads cooking … well except my grandparents 🙂
I am trying to get better at eating cleaner and working out #momlife
Black and Purple are my favorite colors
I absolutely love interacting with each of you everyday!
Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure! I tag all of you 🙂
