This review is for 2 of CoverGirl’s new Bombshell Shineshadows, which are shimmery cream shadows, available in 6 shades. This review is for Ooh La Lilac and Gold Goddess. You can also see the review for Ice Queen, Color Me Money, and Platinum Club here.
These eye shadows come in small squeeze tubes made of plastic that have twist-off caps.
Ooh La Lilac is a silvered-taupe purple. Gold Goddess is a soft, yellowed-gold. Both of these shades have a low-level metallic finish.
The formula for these shadows is creamy, soft, and glides across the lids. Blending is a little unusual due to the formula, but perfectly workable.
I particularly love these 2 shades–more than the other 4 shades I reviewed. They are both wearable and glamorous and can be used either day or night.
I was surprised that these shadows did not crease badly. There was very thin creasing after the first 3 hours of wear, but the creasing did not get worse through the first 5 hours of wear. And there was no visible difference in creasing between wearing these over a primer and over a bare lid.
Ease of Use: 9/10
These are simple enough to apply onto the lid. You can apply them with your finger or a flat, synthetic brush. The color layers effectively. These don’t work as well in the crease compared to powder eye shadows, but can work by adding thin layers and blending with a dense/semi-dense crease brush.
For $8.99, you get 0.18 fl oz (5.32 ml) of product.
