Tried this in Berries and Cream. One of the shades--the medium mauve shade--is extremely glittery, and by the end of the day, the glitter had migrated to my cheeks and temples. The other colours didn't want to stay put either, and creased like crazy. The texture is nice, but I don't like the garish glitter or the poor staying power.
I'm a fan of neautral eyeshadows, so I bought this in a brownish quad. While the colors were nice, it'd be nicer if they actually STAYED ON! Don't get me wrong, the glitter stays forever (About an eternity TOO long...), but no color. When I tried to use one of the beige colors, I had to lterally scrape the shadow to get any on the applicator, and the, I couldn't get anu of the actual color to stay; I had to coat my eyes in powder! Please avoid this product. Cover Girl disappointed me this time.
Has Cover Girl never heard of matte shadows? Tried the Champagne and Tapestry Taupe singles. It doesn't matter if you choose a light or dark color; EVERYTHING is pearlized! Tried the Coffee Shop trio and even the darkest shade is pearlized! Who wants shimmer in the crease? A little shimmer on the lid can be nice, but worn all over makes you look like an exotic lizard when the sun hits your face. If you want to look cheap and weird, it's just perfect. Mardi Gras in the daytime anyone?
I bought this in French Vanilla because I just wanted to brighten up my lids a little on my light yellowy Asian Skin. I didn't want to look like I was actually wearing eyeshadow. It's a nice vanilla color with little shimmer. It enhanced my eyes just a little and I didn't look like I was wearing eye makeup. The packaging is cheap because, well, the product was cheap, about $3 at Walgreens. Unfortunately, about 2 weeks of wearing this irritated my contact lens and my eyes became itchy and red. So watch out for that. Otherwise, it's okay. I think this will last me for eternity, so I don't think I will need to repurchase.
I love covergirl eye enhancers. They arent very expesive, there is a wide range of beautiful colors. My favorite is creme D' mint I have sorta blue, green, grey eyes they are hard to explain, anyways the color looks ok when you first get it on it looks good but the less you put on the better it looks. It just really is a beautiful color. I apply it with my fingers. I also have golden sunrise I enjoy that too.
If you are only looking for a little shimmer, get this one. They don't work for defining or creating drama, but they do open your eyes (try the whitey and the golden ones) and give an overall glow. For a more dramatic look, use Revlon shadows.
I just received the "Dance Party" Trio in a swap and wow, this is such a great product! There's three shadows, Pink Chiffon, Plum Satin, and Confetti Shimmer. Pink Chiffon is a gorgeous iridescent pink that looks great on the browbone, and Plum Satin is dark purle with silver shimmer. The best out of this trio is Confetti Shimmer, it's a gorgeous rosey mauve with TONS of gold microglitter. These eyeshadows really pop when applied wet.
I have this in snow blossom and I love it! Definitely recommended. I have a Guerlain eye shadow that was probably about four times as expensive and the packaging on the Cover Girl isn't as nice and it also doesn't last as long, but it's equally pretty and goes on very smoothly!
I have a trio of these. Crapy package (what do you expect, it's CG), but the shadows themselves are actually not bad. Very smooth and shimmery, and stay amazingly well. Take 2 lipsticks off because they are hard to blend sometimes. Will not buy again. continued >>
I have this in the four color Urban Basics one. It includes dusk which is a light gray, evening shadow which is a taupe, metro sparkle a shimmery mauve/beige, and streetlight which is a bone/whitish color. These go on and last well. Streetlight is a good shade for the brow bone, while evening shadow and dusk work well for the lower lid. Also metro sparkle works well on the brow bone. I think these shades would look good on most everyone. They are very versatile. I just wish CG would come out with new style packaging.
