GENERAL DESCRIPTION Metallic medium aqua eyeshadow with very strong green tones.
PACKAGINGCover Girl eyeshadow singles come in a rectangle pan with a clear cover that snaps shut. They also come with a sponge applicator that really helps with packing color on. I have not had problems with CG eyeshadow packaging at all.
COLOR The number one reason I bought this eyeshadow. Like I said, it is a vibrant metallic aqua shade that is on the green side. Most definitely one of the more unique shades in the drugstore. I do not reach for it very often because of it is very dramatic shade. I took a half point off because it is not the most versatile shade in the world, especially on my golden complexion. It takes a little bit more effort to make it work.
TEXTURE I took another half point off because I wish that the texture is a little bit softer. It takes a harder hand to achieve a solid application of color. Otherwise, I get a sheer wash of color that does not look right with my strong peach and yellow undertones.
STAYING POWER This creases on my oily lids but I never take a point off for that. I have found no eyeshadow that does not crease without a base.
OVERALL Fantastic shade. Dirt cheap price. I would repurchase but I doubt that I will finish it in my lifetime! continued >>
OMG! I'm usually a neutral only girl but I received this as an extra and tried it out using a very soft fluff brush for application. That way I'd get the sheerest wash, because this stuff is AQUA and shimmery. Used it on the outer 2/3 of my eyes, blending a pale nude from the inner 3rd out and putting a slightly dark line on the outter V of my lashes and it is so pretty! Plus this stuff is DIRT CHEAP - would definitely purchase again. The only down side is the glue on CG e/s is so stubborn so it takes some effort to depot for my TM planner, but well worth it.
I love this color and texture, so I bought 2! The packaging on these Cover Girl shadows is cute, but they do no good, because they always break! So, aside from that, I love this shadow and everything about it!
This is decent shadow, but is it ever AQUA!
Do not even consider this product unless you want a very shiny, colorful, blatantly green design.
I only used mine a couple of times before I dropped it and it shattered. I'm not going to bother to buy another, as I just used a tiny dab for an accent, anyhow.
Those who like blue-green eyeshadow will love it, though, especially at this price.It applies smoothly and wears well.
this e/s is very pigmented, staying power is long, the color is fantastic (emerald green, shimmering and kind of metallic).
I really love this product.
This color is WOW! I wasn't expecting it to look so great. I wanted to try a torquoise color without buying something too expesive and this was way worth the 3 bucks. I loved the shimmer which makes it very wearable. Also, it goes on quite sheer at first which can be worn everyday, but layered wet it really brightens the eye. Very mermaid-looking. Would highly recommend.
This is a lovely aqua-green color with lots of gold shimmer. I think the gold shimmer can account for it working on alot people. It always reminds me of a mermaids tail :)
For a drugstore e/s, I think this has a pretty nice, soft texture. Its soft, but not too powdery. The pigment is good, but it doesnt have the best saying power when dry. When its wet, it stays on just as well as any MAC e/s. Good color to have for $3. continued >>
Pretty BRIGHT turqouise. May not work on everyone. Highly pigmented.
After reading the reviews here, I thought I'd give this color a try. I thought it went on pretty unsmooth-- as do most Cover Girl eyeshadows (as I've noticed).
I gave it 3 stars because although I didn't care for the quality of the product, it still IS a pretty color. It just doesn't look right on me. My eyes are a bluish-gray (dark) and it just blended with my eye color.
I'll be taking it back to the store tomorrow.
I really like this color, so it's a shame I can't wear it. About 30 minutes after applying it as eyeliner, my eyes started itching, felt super dry and turned REALLY red. So red that my green eyes looked a freaky shade of aqua. This is really strange since I have no problem wearing Peach Melba. I won't buy this one again.
