Being a straight dude who frequents Mervyn’s, El Hub almost never notices my eye makeup, so I was shocked and delighted when he noticed mine the other day and said he liked CoverGirl’s Intense ShadowBlast Eyeshadow in Blue Bomb ($9).
One of six shades in CoverGirl’s new Intense ShadowBlast Eyeshadow line, Blue Bomb, like the other colors in the line, is billed as waterproof with a built-in primer.
I’m a big supporter of products that save me steps throughout my day, in part because they give me more time to lust after Vampire Eric.
CoverGirl describes these shadows as “intensely beautiful,” which kinda sets ‘em up for something quite dramatic, right?
Drum roll please…
PROOT! Well, I wasn’t expecting to have to apply two or three layers or do so much patting and blending to achieve luscious, rich color, but I did. Beyond that, I think the fluffy texture, which feels almost whipped to me, also makes Blue Bomb a little difficult to control.
And how about creases? Yep, it’s got those too, creasing and fading about half way through the day.
I love this particular color but don’t like the time it takes to layer and blend. Coupled with limited wear time, that doesn’t make Blue Bomb a favorite of mine.
