Product Review: Covergirl Flamed Out 2-in-1 Gel Shadow + Liner

Today I’d like to share with you my thoughts on the newly released *Covergirl Flamed Out 2-in-1 Shadow Pencil;

What They Say:

"Get a dramatic eye look with this versatile pencil in six vivid colours. The 2-in-1 gel shadow and eyeliner pencil glides on smoothly with the definition of an eyeliner, or blend the creamy formula up and out for a smoky shadow that sets and lasts for hours. Available in six shades –Silver Flame (300), Crystal Flame (305), Ashen Glow Flame (335), Ginger Flame (340), Ice Flame (345) and Melted Caramel Flame (350)."

RRP: $9.95 (2.3g) – Available from Priceline, Supermarkets, Variety Stores and Selected Pharmacies

What I Say:
This new Flamed Out Eyeshadow Pencil from Covergirl was released the same time as the Covergirl Flamed Out Mascara (check out my review here).

I was lucky to trial the Eyeshadow Pencil in colour Melted Caramel Flame" (350), which is a gorgeous medium coloured chocolate brown, with a subtle metallic sheen – and preferring neutral shades, this colour is just perfect for me, and the type of shade I’d normally wear.

Before having, I had all the time in the world to spend in the bathroom getting ready, but this is no longer so – and most days I will skip the Eyeshadow, as I simply won’t have the time to do it properly anyway. And that’s where I love products such as this shadow stick which is so quickly and easy use.

The Flamed Out Shadow stick has a creamy formula, which is quick and easy to apply to the lids. Once applied it is a little ‘wet’ and you have to be quick to blend it out, as otherwise it will dry and set on your eyelids. The beauty of the shadow stick is that it is quite pigmented so you can apply it as just a wash of colour blending it out, or you can build up the colour for a more dramatic look or a smokey eye. I have also been using it on top of a more neutral Eyeshadow as the base, and it works perfectly for that too. And it works as a am eyeliner too. Brilliant!

L: The colour built up, R: The colour blended

It has a nice staying power, lasting all day without creasing, and as someone with very sensitive eyes, very importantly; it also doesn’t have any fallout to irritate my eyes.

What I Like:
  • Quick and easy to use
  • Blends well with no fallout
  • Pigmented, so it is easy to build up colour
  • Can be used as an eyeliner too
  • Great price

What I Don’t Like:
  • You have to be very quick blending it out before the eyeshadow dries and set

All in all, these shadow sticks are just so perfect for me right now not having a lot of time to do my makeup, as they make it quick and easy to apply Eyeshadow that there is actually a chance that I get to use Eyeshadow!! At just $9.95 each these are such a versatile bargain buy.

What do you think of these new Eyeshadow sticks from Covergirl? What type of eyeshadows do you prefer?


  1. I really like using this style of eye liner as I find its more forgiving and less scary than using liquid eyeliner!

    1. Definitely more forgiving, but it is also so quick and easy to use as an eyeshadow which I really like, as with a baby it's limited how much time I've got to do my makeup!
