CoverGirl Eye Enhancers in 440, Shimmering Onyx
2.5 grams-Made in USA of imported parts-$3.39
This shadow is not a black. It is fairly misleading. It actually turns out to be a dark, dark gray with silver shimmer. This is not a pigmented shadow by any means.
The formula is okay, it’s not as buttery as other shadows I’ve tried from the same line, it’s just average. The pigmentation, however, is disappointing. This shadow looks amazing in the pan, but one you swatch it, you get a streaky gray with a lot of glittery fallout.
The packaging is average too. Nothing too great.
The above swatch is 4 passes of my finger in trying to get something to show up on my hand. And if you blend it out, the color disappears into practically nothing.
I got this for only $0.79.
Nobody wants a half-there gray shadow. I was expecting a black.
The Bottom Line
This was just…a disappointment. If it were more pigmented, I would have loved this a lot more. I tried using this for a smokey eye, and it barely looked like I did anything dark on my eyes at all. You can definitely pass on this shade.
