For spring, Cover Girl has put out a new line of glossy balms that look like all those chubby sticks everyone’s coming out with. These truly are balms – they don’t give you a lot of color, just a hint of it with a lot of gloss. I bought two and will be reviewing them as I slowly get back into the swing of things.
Cover Girl’s Eye Enhancer in Smoke Alarm ($5.49, Ulta) is the fourth review I’ve done for the 2012 new summer lineup of eyeshadow palettes. Previous reviews included Major Distraction and Prom Queen, which lacked pigmentation, and Prima Donna, which was quite pigmented and easy to work with. The line overall is inconsistent, but there are some gems in the bunch, and Smoke Alarm is one of them. It features three rich grayish shades.
Cover Girl’s Eye Enhancer in Prom Queen ($5.49, Ulta) is part of a new lineup for summer 2012. Like another one from this line which I reviewed earlier, Major Distraction, Prom Queen is overall a little frustrating to work with (on the other hand, the Prima Donna quad is surprisingly good). That said, this palette contains an astonishingly pretty and unusual green shade.
Cover Girl’s Eye Enhancer in Prima Donna ($5.49, Ulta) was released just in time for summer 2012. As with older Cover Girl palettes, this collection varies in quality. I’ve already reviewed Major Distraction, which I found overall lacking in pigmentation. This palette, a mix of lightly shimmery gold, bronze, pink and charcoal gray, is much better.
Cover Girl’s Eye Enhancer in Major Distraction ($4.99, Ulta) is one of their new eyeshadow palette offerings for summer 2012. It’s an interesting combo of pink, brown and teal, with a mix of finishes.
