Review of Cover Girl Eye Enhancers - Champagne by Christinaann5
wOW! i think the CG shadows are really actually great. i know with some of their shadows, they tend to be a tad off but i find some really amazing shadows esp the singles. and Champagne does not dissapoint. Its a great multipurpose shadow that can do so much- its def a must have for me. I wish CG would QUIT TESTING ON ANIMALS!!! or id def repurchase this. other than that fact id go buy it again since i love using this!
CG is widely available in most drugstores like CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens as well as major stores like Walmart & Target. The availability & price will vary depending on your location as well as sales/discounts/coupons. The single shadows will cost you around $2-3 which is pretty fair price, def even better when you get a good sale & Champagne is def a multi-tasker so its well worth it!
The CG Singles are a great formula. The shadow is soft, pigmented, smooth, no fillers or chunks, soft but no fall out, very pigmented & easy to apply & blend. very nice shadows. I love this shadow for the performance. Champagne is just that, a nice champagne shadow, it may have the slightest almost undetectable golden undertone to it but nothing major since i have cool tones- This will work for any skin tone or undertone. Its very pretty. Its a nice basic champagne. It can be used for brow highlight, inner tear duct (which i love using this for that) also as a sheer wash all over for a slight shimmer. its a great shadow for the lid for old hollywood glamour look. the shadow is great for opening up your eye. i put it on & bam- i look much more awake & put together. This also can be used as a face highlighter. its great for that, just use a very fluffy brush or fan brush & brush along cheekbones, its beautiful, much more easier to work with than say Elf Gotta Glow but still both beautiful. This is def a must have if you havent got a stand alone power house shadow. I love it- CG got the formula right on this one. The staying power is also pretty great. I dont have oily lids also i always use a primer. so this stays on for hours. at least 6 hrs. use a primer & even a cream base to increase staying power esp with drugstore shadows, it helps significantly!
CG singles come in the standard hard plastic rectangular compact that snaps shut or open. The backing is dark blue shiny with a sticker with logo/shade name/info. The front lid is see thru so that you can see which shadow is inside. The pan of shadow is about the size of my pinky but wider. Its a great amount of shadow. The pan runs pretty deep. the shadow will last awhile. ive used mine a lot & still havent hit pan but ive made a dip. There also is a ridge/slot to hold the double ended foam applicator so if needed, its there. its not the best foam applicator but it works in a pinch. its not the sturdiest packaging but none of mine have cracked or broke thus far. This would be great to slip into your makeup bag since it can do so many things.
Overall, Champagne is def a must have for me. Its a great multi purpose shadow that can do alot for makeup lovers. i love playing around with this shadow. Its great for highlighting and opening up the eyes. Def one of the smoothest single shadows i own from CG so give it a try!
