I got this a couple years back, so I don't remember the color name. It was a golden/beige color on one side and dark purple on the other. The color combination was nice when it's blended. One of the tips broke off and I had to use a q-tip to put it on though. I'm not one for cream shadows because they tend to crease on me, no matter what I do. But anyhow, it's nice for a few hours of wear but no longer. And the darker color is quite dark for anything other than a night out. But if you want a convenient shadow for those nights out then it's worth a try. I won't repurchase this, I prefer powder shadows. But that's just my own personal taste.

The colors are really gorgeous in the tube.
The colors also compliment themselves nicely.
It's cheap.

It is just a greasy mess.
It does not look good upon application. You can't build it up or work with it at all.
It doesn't stay on for an hour or two.
It makes your eyelids feel greasy and gross.

It was an interesting idea, but overall was not a good product.
I purchased the grey/purple one and ran into a few problems.
The colors fell a tad short for my taste.
Also it didn't stay on the eyes properly for very long, got very smudgey.
Mine unfortunately also broke very quickly, only after a few uses the crayon type bits just completely snapped off. So I did end up throwing it out.

I would reconsider this product if all the above issues were fixed. For now though, I would not buy again nor recommend it to anyone.

I got the purple combination a while back, used it once and stashed it in my drawer. It goes on pretty nicely, but creases within minutes - and its blendability is awful. Somewhere in between a powder shadow (which is easy to blend with a brush) and a cream shadow (which is easy to blend with fingers), this is an impractical product.

It's a greasy, frosty, creasy, mess! CG what were you smoking when you came up with this?
I got the bronze duo and returned it the next day. If you some day see this for a dollar don't waste your buck.

This product..... oooh this product. It's a big no no. I got this in the bronze color and i must say the colors are gorgeous! The one side is a sandy light shimmery color and the darker side is a cute copper. I'm a sucker for the nude like colors. I put this on right after i got it, came back to the mirror literally 10 mins later and BAM huge crease. The formula is creamy and nice but really? how can it crease that quickly? And it was a littler pricier. I would not reccommend this to anyone at all.

Honestly, I don't think this stuff is that bad. The color is nice, and it lasts for a while. I have had issues with it creasing, but if you put a little translucent powder in the crease of your eyelid over the makeup, it helps a lot. On my brown ShadowBlast the darker side popped out, but I just put it back in, and I'm a little more careful with it. Overall, I like this product. I think it looks pretty good, and there aren't too many problems with it.

I don't really have anything bad to say about this product. I have the pink/brown combo as well as the silver/grey combo. The pink & brown is my favorite for everyday use. I use my eyeshadows more as accents so the full-blown smoky look never really mattered to me. Having said that, it might be important to note that I use these as separate colors and not together. I don't like a heavily made up look and these colors are perfect for the natural look that I prefer.

I've read a lot about these breaking and /or creasing. I haven't had trouble with either. The product goes on smoothly and I don't have problems with it being too heavy, greasy, or sticky. I also apply them as they are without any sort of eye shadow base or anything. My recommendation would be to use this product with a light touch and an even hand. You can always layer more color if you prefer a more dramatic look. Besides, you don't want to pull the delicate skin around your eyes as much as possible. Also, for those desiring the smoky look that this product was intended for - don't forget to blend!

Overall, a more than satisfactory product (at least for me).
