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..
