A Smoky Eye How-to Featuring COVERGIRL’s Bombshell Collection


COVERGIRL recently launched their Bombshell collection, which features new cream eyeshadows, mascara, and liquid eyeliner. They asked me to create a tutorial featuring some of the new products, so here’s what I came up with: a sultry, smoky eye that can be paired with a softer pink lip or a more intense, fuchsia-hued lip–depending on just how bold you want to go.

Beginning January 5th through January 25th, all COVERGIRL products will be buy one, get one 50% off at ULTA Beauty.  Plus, we’re giving away products from the COVERGIRL Bombshell collection with a $100 ULTA Beauty gift card!   COVERGIRL will be hosting a Twitter Party on January 6th at 9PM EST, so be sure to check that out!

CoverGirl Gold Flame (330) & Ice Flame (345) Flamed Out Shadow Pencils

CoverGirl Gold Flame (330) Flamed Out Shadow Pencil ($7.99 for 0.08 oz.) is a warm, yellow gold with a pearly sheen. It’s not too frosted, but it’s more shimmery than a satin finish. It had fairly good color payoff in a single stroke and was buildable to mostly opaque color; it did need some light blending (with a finger tip or a fluffy brush) to even out some of the color on the lid, but overall it was nice. It wore well for seven and a half hours and was lightly creased after eight hours of wear. CoverGirl Melted Gold is similar but a powder. Disney Triton is similar, slightly warmer, powder. Chanel Cool Gold is darker. Sephora French Riviera is lighter, powder. MAC Goldmine is warmer. Giorgio Armani #1 Spring 2012 #3 is similar. Chanel Pearl River #3 is similar. OCC Acacia is cooler-toned. bareMinerals Remix is similar. Make Up For Ever #10 is similar but a powder. See comparison swatches.
