Olay Total Effects Eye Brightening CC Cream Review & Swatches

Olay Total Effects Eye Brightening CC Cream1

I think Olay Total Effects Eye Brightening CC Cream actually used to be Olay Total Effects Eye Transforming Cream but don’t quote me there as I never tried the original. It looks like they just added CC Cream into the name.

Although this has correcting benefits I think CC Cream is misleading in the name as it contains no color, doesn’t act as a concealer, etc…color correcting or CC Cream would relate to something with tint or something that has a color adapting shade. Olay Total Effects Eye Brightening CC Cream does not have such a tint. So it can be both misleading and confusing to consumers. Of course, more appealing as well, “Oh CC Cream for eyes, have to try that!” A more accurate product would be Covergirl + Olay Eye Rehab as at least this does act as a skincare and concealer in one.

However…let’s check Olay Total Effects Eye Brightening CC Cream and see what the scoop is!

Covergirl Bombshell Shineshadow Review & Swatches

Covergirl Bombshell Shineshadow

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.
