Creases like crazy!
No matter if you use a primer or apply powder over this you'll end up with creases within 30 minutes. I also wonder how they expect you to keep the darker shade sharp and not worn out. The colors are also not as pigmented as the packaging shows or wants you to believe. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS. I wouldn't wish this product on anyone. It's going straight to the trashcan.
i was hopeful
i feel like ive written so many reviews i hope u guys arent sick of be but this never sets and it falls in my crease. my sister(also on beautylish ) bought one and both broke on the first use. i do like how easy it is to use and the colors. the formula needs to be changed tho
Hate it so much.
If I could give this product lower than one star I would. It's so greasy, and it creases like no tomorrow. It is not as pigmented as advertised. In order to make this product work it would require more that just the product itself. So this isn't "making the smoky eye easy." It would be a lot easier to just do a smoky eye with regular shadows than to buy all of the products it would take to make this work. I wasted $7.50 on it at Walmart for a product only worth maybe $1. This product made me swear off of trying anything else from CoverGirl again, because every product I've owned by them is very poor in quality.
I bought this item in "Citrus Flair" a year ago- before I saw all the reviews on how bad it creased. At that time I did not know about setting all creamy liquid products with a powder. I was so confused as to why it would crease even when I applied an eye shadow primer. I stopped using it for quite some time because I was fed up with it's staying power. It was very disappointing because the colors were gorgeous!
So what do I use this product for now? I use it as a base. After applying a primer I will apply a small amount of the green or copper and blend it out. Over that I use shadow and I find that there is very little creasing after an eight hour work day (although other cream products I use provide zero creasing). Whats unfortunate is that this product is advertised to be used alone. Drew Barrymore is shown applying this and having the perfect smoky eye all night...I would never recommend that. Not only with this product but with any cream shadows. I'm sure that I am not alone being someone who picked this up thinking it would be a one-step product with amazing results. It's quite shocking that they have been advertising it the same way for over a year now considering all the bad reviews this product gets.
Would I repurchase this product? Yes, if I found it on clearance because for around $6 it is not worth it. Because of the false advertising and disappointment with this product I have also shied away from all other products in the ShadowBlast line.
Overall I would give this product 2.5 out of 5 stars. It's not a totally unusable product, but in no way can you use it for what it's intended for.
I was so excited for these when they first came out so I had to get one. When I used it like it directed on the packaging it looked like a mess. The colors blended together too much not "defining" any part of the eye like a smokey eye does. Not to mention it creases like crazy, My purple side broke within the first few days of working with it, so that was another let down. The only thing I have found the Smokey Shadow Blast good for is to use it as a color base before eye shadow.
What a let down
I was really excited to try these out after seeing them in the new set up for covergirl. I bought Purple Plume and Bronze Fire and both we greasy and creased way too quickly. Not to mention that one of the color sticks fell out of the tube within the first week I had it, (I'd only used it once or twice max). Definantly NOT worth the money.
Don't stay long, but still
What can I say? I got them creasing after a short period of time. I own three colors and they all do it. However, I love the colors and they're also easy to use. Not perfect for a hot summer day, but I like them anyway.
Not worth it.
I bought this immediately after I started seeing magazine ads for it. I love the smokey eye look and really wanted to give this a shot.
Yes, it looks nice at the very beginning. But doesn't last very long at all. After a few hours I noticed that it started to collect in the crease of my eye.
