I like a lot of things about this eye shadow. I was concerned that it would be too yellow/gold for me - and it is a little, but not near as much as I thought it would be. I also tried the Pink Chiffon, which is definitely lighter, a little more frosty, but it has a pink/white undertone that is more suited to my skin coloring. I wish they made a color in between the two.
This is a great color to know about. Now, I prefer other shadows for quality. But if you ever lose your stuff on a plane, don't want to travel with it, worry about it breaking in your bag on the go...pick this up! It is a nice little staple and so cheap, if anything happens to it...who cares! If I ever found myself out of town and shadowless...I would be grabbing this up fast! And I do keep it in my bag at all times because it is so neutral. A soft gold champagne color that can go on light or more pigmented depending on how you apply it. I am MAC NW20 and think it is great. It can look soft and beige with a light touch or more pigmented, whiter with a heavier hand. As for wear and durablility...I prefer MAC shadows. But this is one of those drugstore finds you need to know about
My mother had this laying around and used it one day, it was too light for her so she gave it to me.
I can see why this stuff is so cheap, it's awful.
I loved the color at first, it smoothed on nicely and looked pretty good with my eyeliner and mascara. (I strive for a sort of 1960s look. Light eyeshadow, dark liner and lashes.)
After a hour or so, I checked my makeup and, yet again. The shadow had settled into my crease.
So no, this is NOT my HG!
this one rocks. not at all frosty or creasy on moist lids. it's the color that i love. it is a pale yellow-gold that makes my medium toned blue eyes lighter and brighter. i know it would look great for any coloring but i think it's a must for blue eyes and fair skin. it's kinda natural looking but vibrant and sexy all at once. i always call the CO hotline before i buy shades cuz they know there stuff..just describe your coloring and they pick em out.
I use this eyeshadow as a highlighter on my eyes and it looks so nice!! It doesn't last that long on my oily lids but I still like it. However, I won't repurchase because theres so much eyeshadow in this product!! yay!
I think covergirl did stop making this e/s for a while becuase i couldn't find it either...but I've bought this again & again, started wearing it b/c of my mama even! The one thing we agreed on when it came to makeup...can make it a day or night look.
Don't know why I haven't reviewed this product yet, as I have been using it for almost 10 years! I've tried others, but always come back to this one - definitely HG highlighter for me, especially underneath the lid and brow bone and inner corners .. love it!!
This is my HG highlighter! Love the color! I always use this on my brow bone and the inner corner of my eyes. It gives the prettiest glow. I don't use the applicator that it comes with because it'll deposit too much product making me look frosty. So I use a brush and a light hand to apply. The staying power is excellent and the price is really reasonable. This goes well with CG's Mink and Tapestry Taupe.
IN LOVE. This is the third one I've gone through. I was dissappointed when i couldn't find it and thought it was discontinued, until one random day i saw it! I love it. I goes with every other shadow I have, blends flawlessly, is good for multiple effects in day and night, has a simple, classic, no thrills, prctical yet classy container, and stays all day.
PS. When I was searching for a replacement, I didn't find one. I tried 4. None matched up.
Buy again? Forever.
Nothing like it. Use it almost everyday.. looks stunning.
Good lasting power too! Worth the $6 && DEF would repurchase.
