I absolutely LOVED the brilliant color on the platinum one I bought first. Then I applied it and it kind of felt like putting nail polish on your eyelids because of how terribly it dries. I find it VERY difficult to remove with any of my make-up removing products. Oh and the application wand is really blunt. I cannot get into the inner corners (tear duct area) of my eyes without it smudging everywhere else!!! I thought I could put up with it anyways then later it literally started to burn and my lids started peeling. I wont be purchasing any other colors. The Maybelline Color Tattoo cream eyeshadow works way better and doesn't crease at all like this one did. 'Already built in with primer' my ass! Damn you Drew Barrymore.

LOVE THIS. I use the light beigey color and the silvery one. They make a great base for adding other colors in the crease. No fading or creasing by day's end. I need to stock up.

What can I say Ladies..this morning as usual hubby and I went to do some grocery shopping,and I picked up these beauties(the light beige one,and the brown one).Now,I have oily eyelids and they get even more oily as the day progresses.I put the light beige one on about 1 today(Saturday)and here it is..almost 11:30pm at night and this primer-eyeshadow,its STILL THERE!!Im impressed!!!!I didnt put anything else on my lids..nothing,nada...just this covergirl light beige.I cleaned,I cooked,vacummed,...just saying:)

Update!I have kept this stuff on my eyelids all night,and its just after 8 am in the morning,and I still see the sparkles,but the best thing..the primer itself is still there!!!!!!Today I think I will use this brown one and put some powder eyeshadow on,and see how it goes:)With a clean face of course!Im going to buy more of these!

I have been tempted to buy primer to use with my powder shadows, but I'm glad I bought this product (which combines primer + color) instead. It goes on quickly, is easily blendable with a finger, and you can do a sheer application or layer on the color more heavily. I have both the "extreme green" and "platinum pop." Despite the name, the green is pretty subtle if you want it to be. The silvery light blue of "platinum pop" appeals to me less, but I'll still wear it. If Cover Girl adds a plum shade, I'd buy it in a minute! This stays put and looks good for a long time; there is minor creasing, but that can be smoothed out with a finger or Q-tip.

Eye shadow has either always disappeared or has caused creases, grrr...I saw this reviewed and with the primer in the formula, I loved it, only tried #800 which is a frosty whitish color, which is my go to color, will def try others, very satisfied and stays on, no creases, if you make a mistake, wipe immediately as it dries quick ;)

I don't like this product. It smudged and didn't stay on. It looks so cute in the bottle but its impossible to put on. It comes out blotchy. Don't get this.

I bought this today. I was intrigued knowing that this is a shadow and primer combo. I have Beige Blaze. I love the shade in the tube; shimmery ivory. I have a mocha complexion and this shade really shows well against my skin, but the consistency is a bit lacking. It does go on streaky and kind of sheer. I still like it and I would like to try the Extreme Green shade, as well. This retails for $11.99cdn. I bought with 40% off plus a $2 coupon, so I only paid $5.19 before taxes. Not bad.

I got this in Beige Blaze and I am not liking it very much. I will have to see if with more attempts I can get better as using it but as of now, I will not repurchase it. I am no spring chicken and my eye lids are not great - not smooth and they show all imperfections. Anything too shiny really enhances how they are not nice and this product in this color is very shiny. I was hoping for something I could at least use under shadow but it still shines out from below. Maybe the other colors would have been better as this is almost a nude on me or maybe my eyelids are just too old for this stuff.

This product works excellently. Even though I wouldn't use them on their own, the colours are all gorgeous. I prefer to use this product as a primer, because I originally bought it because the store I went to didn't have L'oreal Decrease (I've never been able to wear eyeshadows without them creasing) and I'm so glad I chose this instead. They really work to make sure that my shadow doesn't crease until I take it off. And I tested some of this on my arm before hopping in the shower - there was still a nice shimmer of color when I got out, I had to use some makeup remover. It has great staying power, especially for the price. My only complaints are that the tube is small, and I wish they had a purple color.

i really like this product but not as a stand alone eyeshadow product. i bought this in the lightest color intending to use it as an eyeshadow primer. as a stand alone shadow i feel like its hard to really build the color. but as a primer it works great. in fact i think it may be slightly easier to work with than ud primer potion (which imo feels a little too tacky and sticky for my own preferences). as a primer it intensifies my eyeshadows and prevents them from budging until i take them off. also the price is much better than a lot of the other eyeshadow primers out there! and i also think the large sponge cushion like applicator is kind of novel =)
