I have this in Violet Frappe and Swiss Chocolate. While the packaging always breaks fast it is awfully cheap in price, so I can live with that. The Violet Frappe shade is the best purple shade for green eyes. I have tried other purples from Estee Lauder, Revlon and L'Oreal and this is still THE BEST. For a nice, neutral, but warm alternative the Swiss Chocolate shade is great for bringing out the green-blue shades in my eyes. I would recommend using a base to help decrease creasing thru out the day, but overall these are the best eye colors I have found.

The first eye shadow that stays on my lids flawlessly all day wothout loosing its luster and without starting to look dull. And I did not even wear a base! My Chanel and Dior shadows did NEVER manage this well( I sold them and now I wear Cover Girl shadows exclusively) Nor did Revlon wet/dry that everyone loved. But I have discovered that mostly those products that everybody seems to pretty much hate works so well for me. I am fair so I dont need that much color. There are some colors that are much worse and hopeless to work with but luckily I can read the product reviews here to avoid the bad apples. And these work so well when moistened. I can safely say its HG. And I have tried a lot!

Argh... the case CRACKED while in my purse, so then the cakes broke apart and got all over EVERYTHING! Bright side about its lack of staying power is that at least it came out of my carpet. One of the hinges on the lid is also broken. One of the sponges is coming off its tip, as well. So that's a 1 for packaging quality.I bought (on sale) the Ice Princess quad, which has a frosty lilac, light blue, medium blue-violet, and a dark blue-violet. I like that they give you a range of shades, from light to dark. It's true that none of them show up very much; the 2 darkest shades, the ones I actually try to use, usually end up as sheer tints. I usually layer a lot to build up richer colour, but it's still fairly sheer. It can be a nice effect; I would buy a single pan of a really dark or bright shade to get the sheerness, if I didn't know that the case would break on me.I would recommend using sponge applicators as opposed to brushes with these, just to get them to show up better. I used a gorgeous new brush, one I'd bought because I was so impressed with the way it picked up shadow, on the CG shadows and it barely did anything.

I am kind of obsessed with eye shadow, so I've bought a lot of them, but I always go back to Covergirl. So many colors! Great for matching outfits. The colors also stay on for a long time. I'm not a big fan of caking the color on. I just want a thin layer, so they're best for that. If you want heavy colors, you might want to look elsewhere.

Tacky and chalky. Not a very high quality powder and I didn't much care for the colors. Also, the glitter is too obvious and the powder cakes crack too easily. Yuk.

This is another Cover Girl product that you shouldn't waste money on, because not worth the pocket change. This product lacks proper pigmentation, and the blending is chalky. You really have to DIG into this stuff to get any color WHATSOEVER! There are better eyeshadows out there than this stuff, seriously! Just put this down and move on to something better...

Hmmm. I like these sometimes and other times hate them. There is a nice selection of colors, singles, trios, and quads. I have tried alot of them, but mostly the natural ones. Platina, a medium silver color, is my favorite. It seems to show up the best out of all of them.The pigment is not really all that good, like others said. It takes alot of this to show up. But it's $3, so you can't expect much. The packaging is really ugly and cheap looking as well. But when you want a cheap shadow this will do.

I left all of my good m/u at home going to work so this is one of five items I bought at CVS. I can't go to work without m/u! I use to use covergirl products in highschool. The packaging got really bad since I last used this line. I can definitely tell the quality difference between this and dept store m/u. You have to really, REALLY pack this e/s on to see color. Pigmentation is very weak. This is good for teens just starting out with makeup or people with limited funds. continued >>

What can I say? I despise CoverGirl. Of all the products of theirs that I have tried (and believe me, I've tried a lot..) the eyeshadows seem to be the worst. I put on "Pink Chiffon" one time, and when I looked in the mirror not 20 minutes later, it was GONE! Upon close inspection I noticed major creasing and that the only colorful bits left were dry, itchy little crumbs. The applicator irritated my eyelids and so did the shadow. A few weeks later I decided to give the brand another chance, with the "Cafe Au Lait" Trio. Again, it looked beautiful when I first put it on, but faded quickly, leaving only a few glaring shimmer specks. I suppose they mean it when they say "Eye Enhancers"...these shadows do sort of help to enhance your eyes subtly, but that fresh-faced preppy look really isn't for me. I'm into more dramatic, colorful shadows. Maybe CG would be fine for some people, but for me I need a whole lot more pigment and staying power, and the irritation just isn't worth it...why should I have to put up with crap from my cosmetics? ^__^ Plus, the cheap-looking package was kind of a turnoff, and it broke easily. Back to the drawing board!

These eye shadows are fun to use. There is always a great selection to choose from and the price is pretty cheap. Many times I find these on sale so I stock up. They really do last a long time and the packaging works well since they come in a little plastic case. ( Great for purse) I usually buy the purple/lilac shades since they blend really well with other eye shadows. So, I would definitly say I've had good luck with this product and will certainly buy again.
