CoverGirl Charcoal (335) Flamed Out Shadow Pot
CoverGirl Charcoal (335) Flamed Out Shadow Pot

CoverGirl Charcoal (335) Flamed Out Shadow Pot ($3.99 for 0.07 oz.) is a light-medium gray with a frosted sheen. It had good decent to good color payoff applied dry, and then it was smoother and more even when applied damp. Disney Midnight Hour is a touch lighter. MAC Frozen Blue is similar. Bobbi Brown Sterling is also similar. See comparison swatches.

Blazing Purple (340) Flamed Out Shadow Pot ($3.99 for 0.07 oz.) is a pinky lavender with a pearly finish. It’s slightly iridescent. It had good pigmentation both wet and dry, and this shade actually applies really smoothly and binds together well. I might say this is the best of the shades I’ve tried. L’Oreal With a Twist is purpler. Urban Decay Tainted is less shimmery. Guerlain Attrape-Coeur #4 is very similar. See comparison swatches.

Charcoal had a slightly grainy, powdery consistency, but applied wet, it did smooth out and apply better. I had minimal fall out with it as well, so that was a big plus since I’ve experienced much more noticeable fall out with several other shades. Blazing Purple, however, didn’t have that grainy texture, and it also didn’t have any fall out. Both shades lasted without fading or creasing for eight hours.

Blazing Purple didn't have that grainy texture I've come across with this formula generally, and it also didn't have any fall out.

5 thoughts on “CoverGirl Charcoal (335) & Blazing Purple (340) Flamed Out Shadow Pots Reviews, Photos, Swatches

  1. Neither of these shades are ones I would naturally go for, but I actually really like them!

  2. Blazing Purple reminds me of Urban Decay Asphyxia. I bought Asphyxia but ended up returning it because for $18, it’s not a color I would use a lot to justify the purchase. I think I’m going to pick up Blazing Purple to get my purple fix!

  3. Pretty! With decent grades to boot. There’s hope for these shadow pots after all.

  4. Liz

    I’m not a fan of the colors. However, they do look nice and pigmented for a DS product.

  5. I like that purple a lot. Unfortunately CoverGirl isn’t available here, most US drugstore brands are not.
