CoverGirl Shadow Pot Review

CoverGirl's consistent quality makes it one of the most trusted cheap drugstore makeup there is. Of all CoverGirl's products, I like its eye shadow the best. There are always a variety of colors to choose from, and they rarely flake. 

CoverGirl's eye shadow pots have been selling since 2013. They are small and dainty. I had to try it out. Read on to find out how my CoverGirl Eye Shadow Pot performed.


CoverGirl Eye Shadow Pot Review


(Price: $3.99)

Quality and Performance (4 points total. 40% weight.)

  • Great job! The eye shadow pot never drifted, flaked or broke apart.
  • The eye shadow has consistent texture, and applied evenly and easily.
  • Excellent quality; fantastic performance.
+4 points

Pigmentation (3 points total. 30% weight.)

  • The pot isn't richly pigmented, but color is soft and build-able.
  • The color I bought is named "330." It's a rustic, taupe-y color, with just the right sheen.
  • For day time look, just one swipe works. But you can also add more for night.
  • Personally speaking, the pot's pigmentation is just right.
+3 points

Lasting Power (2 points total. 20% weight.)

  • Shadow has excellent lasting power as well. Up to a few hours
+2 points
 

Packaging (1 point total. 10% weight)

  • The round, little pot looks cute, but twist top isn't the easiest to use.
  • I also feel that there isn't enough product in there.
  • It also would have been nice if the pot came with an applicator.

Re-Purchase?


Yes.

Despite the fact that I needed a makeup brush to apply this eyeshadow, I still liked the product. It was a pleasure to use, and I would be happy to re-purchase it. 

Just one sweep and you're good to go.

Slowly build up color for the night.

Thanks for reading!


The CoverGirl Eyeshadow Pot was a pleasure to try.


I hope you found this review helpful.

Introducing Dave's New York


Thank you for stopping by Cheap Makeup Reviews again. Today's post is sponsored by Dave's New York

Here's what Dave's New York has to say:

It is surprising for most to think that railroad workers need a specific type of clothing.  I am sure the image you have in your head is an old black and white photograph from the 1920’s with 10 to 15 men wearing big coats and caps.  However, Carhartt clothing is making railroad workers attire relevant again.  Founded by Hamilton Carhartt, Carhartt Clothing was created for railroad workers over 120 years ago in Dearborn Michigan.  They are a family owned work wear and outerwear premium manufacturer.  Carhartt is a favorite of construction workers and farmers around the globe and recently introduced a women’s line.  Their clothing is suitable for work or for play, the entire line is comfortable, extremely durable and rugged under most conditions, affordable, fits well and looks great.  Items include gloves, plants, insulated plants, socks, coveralls, bibs, sweatshirts and coats.

Veet Gel Cream Hair Remover Review

The Veet Hair Remover I picked up is for legs and body. Areas include arms, bikini and underarms. It's made with sensitive formula, which means it contains aloe vera. It claims to restore hydration, and work within 5 minutes.

I've never tried Veet before, but haven't the time to shave every day. So a cream gel removal that rids of hair for a few days sounded like a bright idea.

Veet Fast Acting Gel Cream Hair Remover Review


(Price: $6)

 

Quality and Performance (4 points total. 40% weight.)

  • Excellent quality and performance!
  • I was skeptical, but am a fan now.
  • The cream lathered on, and started working right away. Hair on my arms weakened and crumpled within seconds.
  • To avoid irritation, I decided to leave it on for only five minutes.
  • I wiped the cream off with a wet cloth, and hair rubbed off like magic.
  • Afterwards, skin was soft, smooth and hairless.
