cover girl eye enhancer in dynamite drama

Product Name: Cover Girl Eye Enhancers Quad
Shade: Dynamite Drama #223

These eye shadows are super affordable, I think their around $6 CAD at drugstores but out of the 4 colors  they hold, only two of them actually show up.

The maroon color is the most pigmented, looks almost brown but does have that red undertone. Personally I don’t like that because red around the eyes can make the eyes look irritated and I have cool toned pale skin so it shows up too bright on me. The gold is very pretty but is very, very sheer. Its nice to use as a color to dust over another shade to add gold sparks to it because it wont change the color of the other shadow but it does not show up on its own very well.
The white is the second most pigmented color, I like using it as a highlight because it doesn’t come on too strong. If you look at the photos the white really reflected the flash, not just because of its color but it has nice shimmer too.
The green is the least pigmented in the quad, it looks like such a nice color in the quad but it doesn’t come out. I’ve tried layering it but it still just comes out as a tiny hint of color. You could try applying it wet or with primer, that might intensify the color.

Great review! It's a shame that not all the eyeshadows aren't pigmented. The colors are so pretty! I think Covergirl isn't as consistent with the pigmentation of their quads, because I've heard so many good things about the shimmering sands quad!~Emily

Wow these look like really lovely colours and versatile too since they can be used as highlighters! I've never really worn eyeshadow properly and they sort of scare me away =P
