Smokey Shadow Blast by Cover Girl

Tucked in the new Cover Girl display next to the fantastic Liquiline additions were these Smokey Shadow Blast. A new product to me and I'm always looking for something quick and easy and the color matches on these were great.

Liner side- L to R: Silver Sky, Onyx Smoke, Bronze Fire
Top to bottom: Bronze Fire, Onyx Smoke, Silver Sky.

Swatched L to R: Silver Sky, Onyx Smoke, Bronze Fire


Smudged swatches L to R: Silver Sky, Onyx Smoke, Bronze Fire

These are very creamy, so creamy in fact that the first time I used them one of the little nubbins broke when I opened it!
And it's a CLEAN break! Right off the base.


Here they are applied on the eye. Because they are creams I used a base on one eye and the other with none.
Bronze Fire applied to bare lid.


Silver Sky applied over mac Painterly Paint Pot

They both look overly shimmery and greasy, something I don't like at all. These apply very easily and are general easy to use.

Let's see how they hold up after an hour...



Bronze Fire that was applied on bare lid simply didn't hold up at all. What a mess.


Silver Sky applied over mac Painterly Paint Pot held up a little better but not by much.

Remember these were after a single hour!

Is it a Delight, just Decent or a Disaster? Disaster.

I purchased the Bronze Fire one several months back and utterly hate it. I've used it 3 times. What a waste of $7! So glad you did this post to show people what rubbish it is. :D

I did a review on these a few months ago, and hated them. Mine was gone about an hour even with Benefit's Stay Don't Stray primer as a base. Oh, and mine broke as well with the first use. Blech. No good.

I wanted to test them over Urban Decay Primer Potion but I don't have much left and didn't want to waste it lol. I can't believe they are still making and even advertising these.
