New Product Alert: Tarte Lock & Roll

New Product Alert: Tarte Lock & Roll

Cool beans! This inventive Tarte Cosmetics Lock and Roll Eye Shadow Duo ($28) claims to be be crease-proof and smudge-proof. It houses both a cream side and a loose powder side and is part of Tarte's new Stain or Shine Summer 2007 Collection.

Here's how it works. Begin by applying the liquefied, vitamin E enhanced cream shadow to your lids. Wait about ten seconds for it to dry and then use the roller side to apply the shimmery loose powder shadow. This combination of ingredients ensure that the color binds to your eyes and stays put for hours on end.

So far there are two shades available: Patina (light green) and Bronze. The concept sounds really neat, and since I feel like we've been hearing a lot about smudge proof this and crease proof that lately, I am eager to test the waters. I only wish there were a couple more colors out to choose from. Have you tried this product? Any tricks I should know about?

I hope they make one in champagne - these colours are a bit too dark for me.

These look fun and I'm a fan of Tarte cosmetics. I'll wait until they have more colors. I hope they put out a purple shade and a more neutral color.

They need some more colors like purple. I have green eyes and I use purple about half in from my lashes up. and then darker green where the crease is then finish it with lighter green just below the brow. make sure you leave a little blank space between brow and light green so you don't look caked.

I have this and it is really easy to use. The rollerball applicator on the loose powder size keeps everything neat. I used the bronze one today and it has lasted 16 hours without creasing. Hope they come out with more colors!

Maximumblonde I think it has a roller top so it can't escape the top. Rollers are so easy to use, you just smudge the edges a little with your finger or a brush and you're good to go. This sounds awesome. It would take forever for the color to come off with two layers.

these sound fun to me, although agreeing with maximumblonde, it sounds like a mess waiting to happen

These look pretty...but anything "on the go" with loose powder just says "potential mess" to me.

I don't love that they are the exact same color (the cream and powder, I mean). i do get the concept of layering, but it seems annoyingly boring to apply the exaaact same shade of eyeshadow twice...and it's twenty eight bucks????

I just ordered from Sephora a couple days ago and I almost bought this but the shortage of colors stopped me.
