    October 9, 2011 Kelly Baum

    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…
