7 Worst Eyeshadows
From smoky hot messes to glittery disasters -- our readers recommend keeping your brushes far away from this eye makeup
Why: Readers call this a "junk product," "a smoky mess" and "pretty useless." Ouch. "Utter disaster of a product," says one reader. "It is like trying to use a poorly-formulated grease crayon as eyeshadow. Primer does not help; nothing helps. Poor color payoff, poor application (I tried fingers, a brush, a sponge ... nothing could make it go on evenly), poor staying power (creases like nothing else!) and one end fell out when I opened the container (before I even tried to twist it up) … You would be better off grabbing a Crayola Crayon from your kid's crayon box and trying to use it!" Another reader says, "I can't fairly rate this product on its coverage or staying power because its application is nearly impossible. Part of the convenience of having a stick shadow is not having to pack any applicators or brushes in your purse, but that's the only chance in 'H-E-double-hockey-sticks' you have of getting a decent application with this one. Like someone else said, it's a big crayon. When I tried to carefully apply the darker color with the angled tip, the entire thing broke away from the base with only the tiniest amount of pressure … Sorry CoverGirl, but you really dropped the ball on this one."
