Bombshell Shineshadows by Covergirl Review*

Hi Guys,

So today I wanted to review a new product to hit Australian stores and that’s the Bombshell Shineshadows by Covergirl*. I got my hands on six colours and the colours I have are:

  • 300 Ice Queen
  • 305 Colour Me Money
  • 310 Platinum Club
  • 315 Gold Goddess
  • 320 Ooh La Lilac
  • 325 Copper Fling


(How beautiful do they look swatched!!)

These metallic pigments provide the perfect base under your eye shadow and contain reflective pigments making them perfect for a dramatic night time look. The shineshaows are creamy with a moose-like texture and are buildable so pigmentation can be built up as desired. The shadow doesn’t has a wet finish so layers/other eyeshadows can be added with ease as there is no need to allow time for the product to dry. I texted using a number of eye shadows on top of the shineshadow and they applied beautifully. Another great thing about this product is it doesn’t get creasy, only fading slightly with around 7 hours of use.


I am pretty happy with the colour selection as I feel there is a colour in the range that everyone would use however I would have liked there to be a darker brown but in terms of base colours they have really hit the nail on the head there. I would compare these to the Maybelline colour tattoos in texture and creaminess but the best thing about them being in a tube and not a pot is that these will have a longer shelf life as they do not dry up like the colour tattoos do.


I definitely recommend adding one of these babies to your collection as they make the perfect base. These retail at $11.95 at Priceline and if we are talking getting the bang for your buck, $11.95 is very reasonable for a base eye shadow! My favourite colour is copper fling (perfect for blue eyes!).

Have any of you guys tried Covergirl’s Shineshadows yet?

Until next time..




  1. These look pretty good! I’m not a big fan of the maybelline color tattoos. But the packaging of these is awesome.
