Cover Girl Smoky Shadow Blast [review]
by pemora

As I've said before, I love me some eye make-up. Oh yes, I do not care if I look like the Latina-version of Homey D. Clown, I will wear eye make-up forever and ever. Since I am pretty obsessed with Cover Girl's clear mascara, I thought I would give this new product a try.

That's not entirely true - I was convinced by Drew Barrymore, CG's spokesperson. Who doesn't want to look like Drew?

I bought Silver Sky a combo with a silver base and a dark purple liner. The color looks great in the package and is pretty consistent with the color make-up that I normally wear. I have very mixed feelings about this thing. It looks great on initially, but it takes a lot of steps to get it to stay put. First of all, I had to rub the tip (be easy) with my thumb to take off the waxy covering. Next, I needed an eyeshadow base or it would not stay on at all. Then, it never ever lasts past my morning coffee.

However, the liner end is hot fire. I loved the darker color, the easy application and ability to blend. 

Oh! The base part of my tube broke off. BROKE! I can't believe I almost forgot that tidbit.

In summary - skip it. Go for one of Cover Girl's eyeshadow palettes and just call it a day.

Sorry, Drew.

  1. That's good to know. I loved an almay smokey eye duo...that is until I had to sharpen it. It kept breaking off and the wood splintered every single time. I tried buying another, thinking it was just that one, but it was the same story.
