This Spring, my friends at CoverGirl sent me one of their newest product lines, The Bombshell Collection. After having a few weeks to try and test it all, I've made space to add the most outstanding performers to both my personal and professional kits. I was most impressed with the quality of the Bombshell Shineshadow. Cosmetic junkies and makeup artists both commonly complain that high priced "pro" brands may be able to make a decent long-wearing cream shadow that photographs well, but many of them dry up into sparkly dust shortly after the first usage. These metallic cream shadows are packaged in a squeezable tube! I have been using them for two months now, and they still have the same smooth texture that they did when I first opened them. The shadow's finish when worn alone is a metallic shimmer, but I also like to smoke out the look by smudging a darker matte shadow on top of it.
Copper Fling Bombshell Shineshadow has been my summer go-to neutral. I road tested it myself while attending an outdoor art festival on a HOT day. One drop of primer under this shadow, and it did not crease during 12 hours of dancing and sweating in the July heat. Some of the luxury or department store brand crease-resistant cream eye shadows can cost upwards of 25 dollars. (That's a lot of money for a product that I may or may not get through before it completely dries up.) For that same cost you can go to the corner drug store and get four of these. The price can not be beat! CoverGirl Bombshell Shineshadows are about 6 bucks at Target and CVS, so there is no guilt in purchasing a handful of them.
