Review: CoverGirl Smokey Shadow Blast

The makeup goal for everyone woman is to create the perfect smokey eye. CoverGirl's newest additions to their Blast line is aimed towards this goal-to help women achieve a fast, easy, and seamless smokey eye in just two steps. After seeing the commercial and visuals for this new line, I wanted to try these products for myself to see if they were the answer to my smokey eye addiction.

Each end of the Shadow Blast is contoured to fit its purpose: the rounded end is for an all-over lid colour, and the pointed end is for adding definition into the crease and lashline. The ends are also labelled on the packaging to make it all the simpler for beginners (although the name of the product is not labelled, tsk tsk). You do not have to use them this way-you could just as easily use the all over shade as a definition shade and vice versa. Both ends can be used as eyeshadow bases for powder products, however, I would still use a primer underneath to extend the wear time and to minimize creasing.

The colours initially apply quite sheer and do require a few layers to build up the colour. Be sure to blend lightly or you will begin to loose the pigmentation of the shadows. They do blend quite well if you use a light hand, but I would advise just blending around the edges and not over the actual product (using your fingers works very well for this). They dry to a dewy finish that is prone to creasing so I would advise using a primer underneath.

Grade: B-
Okay for a fast and easy smokey eye, but you won't get a lot of wear time unless you use a primer or a base, and even then not the whole day. I have been using these as colour bases for other looks )as you would a MAC shadestick or NYX Jumbo Pencil).
