CoverGirl Flamed Out Shadow Pots (Lime Light, Turquoise Glow, Sapphire Flare) Review, Photos, Swatches

CoverGirl Lime Light (310) Flamed Out Shadow Pot Eyeshadow
CoverGirl Lime Light (310) Flamed Out Shadow Pot Eyeshadow

CoverGirl Lime Light (310) Flamed Out Shadow Pot Eyeshadow ($4.99 for 0.07 oz.) is a brightened, chartreuse green with a frosted, metallic finish and slight sparkle. AVEDA Lemongrass is lighter, cooler. AVEDA Papyrus is less shimmery. Dior Peacock #1 is lighter. Make Up For Ever #304 is brighter. MAC Lucky Green is darker. MAC Juxt is more muted. Inglot #412 is darker. See comparison swatches.

Turquose Glow (325) Flamed Out Shadow Pot Eyeshadow ($4.99 for 0.07 oz.) is a cool-toned, aqua with subtle green tones and a metallic, sparkling finish. Make Up For Ever #53 is a cream product and lighter. MAC Lucky in Love is very similar. See comparison swatches.

CoverGirl Sapphire Flare (315) Flamed Out Shadow Pot Eyeshadow ($4.99 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium-dark, brightened blue with silver sparkle. Urban Decay Radium is slightly darker. NYX Kiss in Casablanca is darker. Make Up For Ever #167 is brighter. MAC Freshwater is slightly brighter. Inglot #426 is slightly bolder. See comparison swatches.

This is a new formula that I found at my local Walgreens this past weekend. I haven’t spotted it available online, but CoverGirl does list it on their website. Interesting enough, the pots themselves didn’t have any names on them (just numbers), and heads up–there were no safety seals on these at all. The formula is supposed to have “vivid color,” be “blendable,” and have a “glittery and sparkly effect.”

All three were slightly powdery and would apply better with flat, firm brushes or sponge-tip applicators rather than fluffy brushes, which will just exacerbate the powdery surface. I used them wet, though, because they seemed to have the kind of texture that would respond well to a damp brush, and it seemed to minimize some of the powderiness. There’s a noticeable grit to the texture if you blended the color against your skin; like the powder isn’t finely-milled enough.

Aside from the texture, good color payoff was possible.  I had a noticeable amount of fading after six and a half hours of wear, which continued for the next few hours I wore them for.  Over a sticky primer, the results were better, and I was able to see the wear extend to eight hours without fading.  Depending on what primers and potions you already have, you may be able to make these work.  Lime Light was the best-performer, as it was barely faded after eight hours.  Turquoise Glow had the most powdery texture of the three, and it was noticeably grittier, too.  There was some sparkle fall out after eight hours, too, but it was less concerning compared to the fading.

Thanks for the swatches and review! I’m pretty sure these are new additions to the permanent line rather than a LE formula. Have you tried the shadow sticks? They last amazing on me and have this cooling sensation, very interesting and I think you’d enjoy them!

Agreed. I’d rather order from meow/fyrinnae/etc for UNDER 8.99 and get a fantastic product that I may have to wait for, or spend more on a Canadian brand, than support the evil empire (Walmart and P&G) for a less than stellar product. (I’m in the GTA, btw).

I have seen these for the past month in our Walmart (Canada) and have passed them over, partly due to packaging and I never have great experiences with CG eyeshadows. The only items I use from CG that I feel are worth it are Lashblast and 2 cheekers (one is now discontinued). The shadows always leave me wanting.

Can you please inform me about this discontinued Cheekers colour? I love cheekers and would like to hunt this particular colour down. I’m crazy like that lol! TIA 🙂

I’m pretty sure it’s called Golden Pink. Emily at Beauty Broadcast had recommended it and since then it has disappeared from the shelves. I’ve had it for about 2 years i think….huh, okay, it appears to be on the CG website now! I’m sure it wasn’t around for a while, so maybe it was proving to be a bad call to disc. it? Sorry for the let down on a good blush hunt!

I have immense dislike for CoverGirl eyeshadows. The pigmentation and wear never impressed me, and they always feel so gritty when I’m applying them to my eyelids. My friend uses CoverGirl a lot though, so I gave all my stuff to her.

It’s nice to see the drugstore come out with some fun colors, but I’m not sure these are a great value since you can get an inglot shadow for $6.

I was recently in walmart and saw 315 on the shelf. I was just drawn to it and had one of those “I HAVE TO HAVE THIS RIGHT NOW!” moments. I’m a sucker for a bright blue eyeshadow. I found application best with a brush similar to a concealer brush, and I used Color Tattoo in Tenacious Teal as a base. It was very vibrant and I LOVED it. It’s a go to thing for me now if I want a bright eyeshadow for the day.
