CoverGirl Melted Caramel Flame (350) Flamed Out Shadow Pencil

CoverGirl Melted Caramel Flame (350) Flamed Out Shadow Pencil ($7.99 for 0.08 oz.) is subdued, subtly warm-toned medium-dark brown with a frosted bronze and gray shimmer. Disney Palace is slightly warmer. Disney Les Poissons is similar. Urban Decay Spotlight is cooler-toned. Urban Decay Juju is cooler-toned. Urban Decay Rehab is cooler-toned, darker. MAC Heavenly Bliss is similar but a powder product. Chanel Raffinement #3 is warmer. Bobbi Brown Heather Brown is a powder product. See comparison swatches.

Ashen Glow Flame (335) Flamed Out Shadow Pencil ($7.99 for 0.08 oz.) is dirty, green-ish pewter with gold sparkle. MAC Greenluxe #3 is lighter, powder. Chanel Moon River is a bit warmer. MAC Hazy Day is less shimmery, powder. MAC ANtique Diamond is more metallic. MAC Modern Pewter is darker, powder. Benefit Skinny Jeans is darker, less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

There’s a light cooling sensation when these hit the skin, which doesn’t last for long, but it definitely feels cool and almost a little wet. They both glided on fairly well, but they’re semi-sheer at best. I was able to build up somewhat; with Melted Caramel Flame to mostly opaque color, while Ashen Glow Flame wasn’t as creamy, so it tended to stick and set, which resulted in semi-opaque color that was a little chunky and uneven. I wore these two shades together, and I only had some trouble with Ashen Glow Flame, which had slightly creased and faded away after seven hours of wear and had significant fall out–the other shade seemed just fine after eight and a half hours (no primer). These will require sharpening, so if you prefer twist-up pencils, you’ll want to pass on these. They also seemed a bit smaller than other jumbo pencils, so they didn’t quite well into my sharpeners for jumbo pencils.

I think covergirl really needs to step up their eyeshadow game. In general, covergirl is usually a brand I skip over at the drugstore because everything they put out seems to be kind of a miss.

Ashen Glow looks so much like a product I would love but given that it’s disappointing I’ll pass. Christine, is Ashen Glow at all like UD’s Mushroom eye shadow pencil?

Their 3-in-1 foundation is very good. I actually prefer it over most of the higher-end foundations I’ve tried. It feels light-weight, but has very good staying power, keeps me from getting oily, and is great at concealing my redness and old acne marks.

This whole eye collection was disappointing for me. I only kept the red pencil #310. It’s a cool metallic red and is a good base for other red shadows and is very wearable but does fade after 5 hours and can stain your lid a tiny bit.

Glad I’m not alone on that, Jackie! I was sooo excited because everything looked so pretty on the display!

I wonder if there’s inter-batch variability, because I didn’t have a lot of issues with fallout or application with Ashen Glow Flame. (It was just such a cool color that I bought it without having read any reviews.) I did put it over Nars Pro-Prime though.

I’m glad yours was better! The two were so different from each other in terms of results/wear, so it’s entirely possible!
