I was actually able to achieve a smokey eye with this product. I must say I also liked the colors. The colors although look bright are somewhat toned down. They are not overpowering. This does stay on for a while but it does crease without any primer on under it. Like I said maybe there are tricks to not creasing, but I don't know them. I really enjoy wearing this product and it is easy to carry around. You don't need to worry about a brush. Just apply and go. Carry it around like a tube of lipstick.

I received this product, in silver sky, free from [...]. The blunt end, lid to brow bone, is silver and the pointed end, liner and crease, is a dark plum. This product did not live up to the hype.

It is not very heavily pigmented, so it is difficult to accumulate enough color. I had to press too hard to apply the color, so I was afraid that I would either break the stick or end up with wrinkles because of tugging on my eyelids. I applied both step 1 and step 2, and the colors blended nicely and complemented each other, but about an hour later, it started to crease. When I used only step 1, the shadow on my lid creased again. I never have a problem with powder shadows creasing. Using primer may help, but I am not interested in adding another step. I expect the shadow to perform well by itself. I would buy it if the formula were improved, since it is a great concept with nice color duos.

I bought this because it looked good in the ad. Application is fairly easy, but it does not last. I don't think it even lasted an hour, and that was with a high quality primer.

I have very busy days and do not have time to reapply makeup.

I'm a BzzAgent and I received a free sample to this product to try and review. I have to admit that it is not my favorite eyeshadow. Though the shadow glided on very smoothly and was easy to apply, I did not like the color at all. My husband said that it made me look like I had grass stains on my eyelids! Even if I were given a different color to review, I don't think that I would like this shadow. The color faded very quickly (I noticed a difference within two hours) and it is easily smeared. I would probably only recommend this eyeshadow if you had a short, nighttime event to go to.

Comments about CoverGirl Smoky Shadow Blast Shadow Stick, Citrus Flair 820, 1 ea:

I'm a BzzAgent so I received this product for free & was very excited to try it out. I'm a big fan of the smoky eye and loved the idea of the orange & green color combo. However, when I started applying the product I instantly saw that it was not at all bright like I prefer and the creamy consistency immediately started to crease in my eyelid. I wanted to give it a chance so I tried adding a bit more for an intense color, but it just make it more & more goopy looking.

I'm disappointed because I usually love CoverGirl products. Oh well. On to the next!

      Like Jackie, I received this product from bzzagent but did not like this product AT ALL. it smudges, the color is very unpigmented and I could not achieve a smoky eye look even after following instructions and watching the instructional video.
      I was very excited about the colors but they were very bland.
      All and all, I would not recommend this product.

      Comments about CoverGirl Smoky Shadow Blast Shadow Stick, Citrus Flair 820, 1 ea:

      I was really excited to receive my free trial of this item as a BuzzAgent, but I'm a little disappointed. I guess I chose the wrong color for my skin tone (fair, freckled, green eyes) but I can't think whom these colors would look good on! The green is kind of a pastel-y florescent Easter egg color -- not flattering -- and the red is too russet-y and make me look like I've been crying. Not the effect I was going for. But the idea of combining two colors for a perfect smokey eye is a great one and the application was easy. Even with the off colors, I could tell that with the RIGHT colors this would be a product I'd use whenever I wanted an easy eye.

      The copper color is a little to orange and the green color is like a mint color so it doesn't look good on my skin. It seems like both the colors clash when used together. It's very easy to apply and the shimmer looks nice. great product, but the colors need adjusting. I might try a different color instead.

      I received this as a test product & had high hopes. The directions were easy to understand and its nice that it is easily portable in your purse. The colors were vivid and blended well.

      The problems were in applying it to the eye. As in the commercial, it looks so easy to just "draw" it onto your eyelid. Its not that easy. The eye shadow is sort of creamy and I found it hard to make it stick to the eyelid. It was heavier in some parts than others but if you try to blend it with your finger or a brush, it just wipes off.

      The step two part was slightly easier to apply, I think because it was smaller than step one. But after applying the second color, I couldnt see any seperation between the two colors.

      I won't be buying or recommending this. Unfortunately.
