Holds your Eyeshadow in place without the creasing!

This primer works well…no creasing and my eyelids didn’t look greasy after 5 hours of eyeshadow wear; however, toward the 7th hour my shadow didn’t seem as vibrant. But for the price you can’t complain. 4 stars because this blue shade does not show up well on caramel complexions….great as a shadow base for a blue or green eyeshadow look.

Long-lasting and slightly shimmery

Not only does the shadow last all day and all night, but you don’t have to use very much on your eye so the bottle does too. I really wish they would introduce more colors.

Double duty!

I really like this product because it can be used alone or with another eye shadow. When I am in a hurry, I just swipe it on my eyelids and am good to go!!

Awesome! Replaces pricey Clinique touchbase!

For me it is only a primer to even out skin tone and to make eyeshadow color more true. I used Clinique touch base in canvas for >10 years and then this product came out. As far as I can tell this is the only primer/base product out there without going to an expensive brand and I looked for years trying to cut costs of having to use Clinique. This product lasts alot longer too and doesn’t require you to use your fingers for application since it has a convenient wand. It does crease by the end of the day but is easily smeared out. I love it and will not go back to using Clinque touchbase again. Sorry Clinique. Hello Covergirl!!! I did also experience the burning feeling but did not associate it with this product until I read someone else’s review that mentioned a similar feeling.

Foam applicator fell off into Eye Shadow after 2 uses

As anyone who really knows me will attest, I’m pretty much a drag queen trapped in a business woman’s body; In private, I’m all about the silver and platinum make-up and nail polish and shoes. BLING IT ON BABIES!!!!!!There was a special banner selling this silver eye-shadow so I clicked and it bought it for me.Nifty, simple, Yay! Silver eyelid bling! I wore it once, nice and silvery, all was good in the universe.Second time I went to apply the shadow POW! the applicator sponge part fell into the shadow irretrievably broken, leaving me to use the hard plastic nub part to scoop out shadow and then slather it on with a finger as if I were Mimi from the Drew Carey show.Not cool Covergirl eye-shadow, not cool.Sure it wasn’t terribly expensive, but still, 7 dollars for one use makes it more expensive per oz. than most high-end perfumes.So feh on your shoddy sponge wand Covergirl.I’ll go back to not using your products in general.

Good Stuff!

I bought the beige color and love it for an under eyebrow brightner. It stays all day and looks great. I put it on with the want and smooth it with a shadow brush. I went back and bought the brown to accent. I would recommend this for all day wear.

Hands Down The Best Shadow OR Primer Ever

I cannot say enough about this product. I absolutely love it. I use it every single day both on its own and under other eye pigments. The product itself is the perfect primer, better than even high-end eye primers. It stays put and keeps your other products in place all day. Each color contains a subtle pigment with fine frost, so it gives contour and brightens up the eye with a gorgeous shimmer. If that’s not enough bling for you, it will really intensify the depth and bling factor of your other products. It gives frost or metallic eye shadows a polished surface to really shine. It makes your contour shades blend in beautifully and stay put. It gives your mattes a glow. I have oily skin, hooded lids, and fine lines. Shadowblast does not settle, crease, or smudge, even on me. If you’re middle-aged like I am, and you think you can’t wear frosted shadows any more, don’t be afraid to try this product. It’s affordable, super easy to apply, and looks gorgeous. I get compliments all the time on my "beautiful eyes". I’ve spent a fortune on all kinds of cosmetics, from drugstore brands to high-end and everything in between. This is hands down, one of the best products I’ve ever used. I don’t know what I’d do without it!

Not crazy about this

It went on fine and is nice and creamy but a little while after applying it…it started burning my eyelids so I can’t use it.

Burns. Creases.

I keep having moments of dabbling in the drugstore brand items looking for department store brand results. After all, cosmetics has turned into such a fiercely competitive business that has made everyone step up their game. There are some quality items in your neighborhood pharmacy that are doing their best to earn your loyalty.This product doesn’t cut it. Sorry I made the investment.Too sheer. It creases. And in my case, it makes my lids burn.Makeup has become far too evolved for a product like this to be acceptable.

I absolutely love this product! It works as a great base with some color and my eyeshadow goes on so well over it! One of my staple items now!

I absolutely love the portability, color selection, texture and easy application but these Shadowblasts burn my eyelids!!! But that still hasn’t stopped me from buying three more of them yesterday! So far I have the cream color, pink, brown and olive green colors.

I tried the pink one, it is amazing! 🙂

I’ve been looking for I something like this for several years now; the Avon eyeshadow I needed to replace had sadly been discontinued. I’ve searched hi and low for a nice thick frosty pink eyeshadow like this that comes with its own wand for easy application. In the meantime, I was stuck with other cream based shadows that weren’t the right shade, and not thick and bold enough to be noticeable. Luckily, I was on the lookout for an eyelash curler at Target, and there this eyeshadow was hanging right beside it. I couldn’t believe I may have found a great shadow at such a low price. I’m not going to admit how much I spent at Ulta and other stores trying to find this! I wore it for the first time today and it has excellent coverage, the color definitely noticeable, a frosty lighter shade of pink which contrasts nicely with green eyes like mine. I didn’t have any burning sensation as others mentioned, if you’re like me and don’t have a history of sensitive skin you’ll probably be just fine. The color did crease a little in the crease of my lid but not until I’d been wearing it for almost 10 hours. I was surprised to see on Amazon this is waterproof because nothing on the packaging says that this product is waterproof. You would think that they would advertise that if it was. I have not tested the waterproof capability yet, that’s a minor issue for me. I am in love with this product and will definitely stock up on it!
