Covergirl Bombshell Shineshadow Review & Swatches
I’m slightly shocked I love Covergirl Bombshell Shineshadow ($5.99 at Drugstores). I’m typically very disappointed by Covergirl offerings! They have some great products but sometimes the formulas just don’t pan out well for me.
Covergirl Bombshell Shineshadow launched earlier this Spring in six shades. These new cream shadows offer color, shimmer, and come housed in a tiny tube.
Are they great?
Yeah, I’d like to think they are.
Covergirl Bombshell Shineshadow contain reflective pigments which give them a very nice shimmery finish that isn’t too overdone or disco ball-ish. Each shade comes in a tiny tube which you can squeeze the shadow out onto fingers or the back of your hand for application with a brush.
Color Me Green and Platinum Club
The shadow formula offers the option of a sheer wash of color or easily builds for more impact. It has a fine metallic finish with a dewy look that never feels heavy or sticky. The texture is creamy and applies very easily with the aid of a brush or simply with your finger. I find application with my finger is the easiest method for these! I just squeeze a small amount onto my finger, apply on my lid, and blend gently. They do have a good deal of shimmer but also a nice wash of color as well. They set in a matter of a few seconds but still give plenty of time to work with them and build as needed. I find two applications gives nice opaque color on lids from the two colors I tried out.
I didn’t have a single issue with the shadow creasing but you’ll see that color fades a little bit at around hour seven. This was of course, on drier eyes, unsure how the texture will do oily lids.
Count me surprised as the formula, wear, and ease of use on these new Covergirl Bombshell Shineshadow. Only thing they are missing here is variety as six shades is a little sparse for those wanting a wider selection of colors.
