Covergirl | Smoky ShadowBlast Eye Color x Purple Plume | Review

What is it ? : It's a smoky eye tool plus makeup artist all in one shadow stick. Available in six perfectly coordinated shade duos with uniquely designed ends, Smoky ShadowBlast lets you create a traditional or colorful smoky eye in two easy steps. The new, double-ended stick features expertly coordinate shades and two precision applicator tips - one for base, one for liner/crease - so you can easily apply, smudge and blend shadow to a smoky perfection.

Step 1: Sweep the rounded end of the shadow stick over entire lid
The rounded tip helps you to easily apply the base color to your lid smoothly and evenly.

Step 2: Use the angled end along lash line and crease for bold definition
The contoured top gives you more control, so you can define the crease and lashline with expert perfection.

The Final Look
I blended the colors together with a blending brush to smooth out the harshness in the crease line.

Glow: The two in one shadow effect is truly a great idea! It makes it that much easier to create a smoky look without having to search for a complimenting color! I also love that it's compact and can be taken with me on the go.

Glare: Well like most creamy based shadows I always seem to experience creasing and this one was no different! I do have extremely oily skin & lids so I know I should've used an eyeshadow base but in this case I didn't. I have a couple other shades to try out so I'll definitely try it with a base and keep you all posted!

Would I Recommend It? It's definitely worth a try!

Overall Glam:  I love the design and the coordinating shades. I can't wait to review the other colors I have as well. I think it's really a cute & simple process! Ideal for someone who doesn't want to spend a long time applying makeup!

Suggested Retail Price is $7.49. Covegirl Smoky ShadowBlast is currently available at various retailers nationwide. For more information or to find a location near you, visit www.covergirl.com .

  1. I absolutely love this product. I have all of the colors. What I like the most is that they are easy to throw in a makeup bag for applying on the go! Often, Walgreens or CVS will run BOGO on this brand, so look out for it!

  2. Ohh!! Thanks for the heads up the BOGO deals I will definitely look out for them so I can get a few more colors lol !

    I agree they're really cute and ideal for travel!
