I bought this on a whim when I was taking my cousin to Ulta to help her pick out some new makeup, since I have that store memorized. And since i was in a makeup store, I had to get something(s). :)
This was during the time where i decided I'm going to start wearing eyeshadow, because I never really wore it before. I had heard some great reviews on CoverGirl shadows, especially this one. And for all the raving about this product, it fell a little short to me.
They were not as pigmented as i expected. It is buildable, but even then, its still a sheer, very shimmery color.The darkest color is the most pigmented, because its dark and it is a nice orangey/brown, I kinda like it.
My favorite out of the three is the lightest shade. A nice, light, lemony shade that is perfect in the corner of my eyes or as a highlighter.
The absolute worst (to me) is the medium shade, which looks like a beautiful copper but turned out to look just plain orange on me. Its ugly, hands down. Also, it feels gritty compared to the others.
Pros: good highlight color, good dark all over lid color. 2 out of 3 feel soft.
Cons: awful flimsy packaging. Awful medium color. gritty medium color. bad applicators.
Bottom line is I will only repurchase this if i cannot find the shades in this kit that i like on their own. I might try the other colors that are offered but I'm not sure.
