I totally forgot about these! (Just saw it while perusing reviews). Haha. I guess that says something too- how crappy and forgetable they are/were! My take on this is pretty much the same as Haley P. However, I got this a few years ago: before I used Beautylish, was just starting to get more into makeup, and before I knew about the importance of setting creme products with powders to lock down the product and increase the color intensity. So, I could have set this with some translucent powder or e.s. that matched the color combo of the duo shadow stick, but unfortunately I didn't. I too, was seduced with Drew Barrymore's MU in the commercials for this product, when it was launched, and waited awhile to get it. I love bronze on my eyes, and thought the citrus/lime punch would add a cute pop to the bronze eye look. All I know is that with a primer under- pretty sure my UDPP, this creased in a few hours. I remember seeing the creases in the bathroom mirror at my community college. After that, I had no qualms with ditching it. And looking back, I'm sure it could have performed better with some powder over, but it still would have been a hassle- there are creme shadows, even from the drugstore, that would perform way better- even without powder to set it. (I'm looking at you, Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo!). Plus, I always have so many products to use more of or still need to use :P that I don't need something sitting around that I most likely won't use. I don't recall if one of the shadow sticks broke, but judging by the negative reviews, my product probably would have at some point, anyway. I did like the product design and the rounded nub on one side, for all over shading on the lid/ brown bone, etc., and the pointed end on the other side- for crease work and precise eye lining. As cool as this seemed, the product just didn't hold up. I think this even turned me off of Cover Girl for awhile too!
Hate Hate Hate.
I was very excited to get my hands on this! Then when i first used it, THE STICK BROKE AND FELL OFF!! I hate it alot. i managed to 'fix' it and i tried using it and after about wearing it for 30 minutes, it already started creasing. Dont buy this, no matter how beautiful the colors are.
I was actually looking forward to using this product! I loved the concept and how easy it seemed. But as soon as I swatched it on my hand to observe the color I regreted buying it. It was a waste of money. The color isn't pigmented. It smears easy and doesn't last long. It's almost TOO creamy. I was very disappointed.
Wasted my money!
The second that I opened this to play with it, the silver fell out immediately. I intend on returning it, but I figured since it was unusable and not resell-able, I'd play with it. The colors aren't bold at all. I was very disappointed. The color combos are great, but again, it doesn't last at all.
I regret buying this!
I wore this to one of my dance competitions for smokey eyes. After my performance, I began to noticed lines on my lids and I blended it out to make it not noticeable. I'm very disappointed in CG. I really love them, but not this product. I may use the white side as a base, but sadly, I think one of the dancers that used this and didn't twisted down the product, closed the cap, and broke, I was kinda pissed off about that.. wasted my money on that, and also how crappy the product was.
do not buy!
This comes out creasing already, lol. Its horrible! Im not joking, like blink and you have creases everywhere. On top of this it is very greasy and melts. I hate to have to even give this one star.
I was pretty bummed out about this. not at all impressed.
The color was beautiful on me, went on nice and everything. but you have to apply lightly, because the thingy would snap off. Step 2 popped out already. I even used primer under it, even though it's a cream thing, but it still creased horribly. Maybe I have oily lids, but they should have done way better than this. I'm dissapointed in covergirl because I want to use this product but I hate looking like I rubbed my eye
i'm giving it 2 because, well, it's a great concept. i heard Mary Kay has some. Imma try those instead lol
NOT IMPRESSED :(
When this first came out I was super excited because it looked like something I would usually love...NOT.. first off you had to apply it soo lightly or the stick would just snap off, plus the pigmentation sucked, (especially the smoke color). It didn't go on evenly at all and the first time i tried it, it creased about a hour later.. if that. Horrible product :(
