CoverGirl’s Exact Eyelights Brightening Eye Shadow collection is color coordinated to bring out the color of your eye’s and defines them. There’s one for blue, green, hazel and brown eye’s witch is the one that I bought for myself. You get four different shades of shadow and a double tipped sponge applicator along with a soft bristle brush for easy application. On the back of the packaging they shows you where you should places each shade of shadow for best results. This is also on the shadow container, but it’s printed pretty small. This was the first time I’ve tried Exact Eyelights Brightening Eye Shadow and I wasn’t to sure if I’d care for the colors. How ever I was and still am very happy with the ease of application and the way the colors bought out all the different shades in my brown eyes. I also liked the fact that they included a nice brush along with the shadow. You can’t beat it for the price and the look if gives your eye’s.

Just recently a friend of mine gave me this product in 'Radiant Blues' and I was so blown away. I really wasn't sure what to expect, It had been a while since I've last tried Covergirl's eyeshadows. All I can say is that the company has definitely been stepping it up. All the olors are so vibrant and shimmery and the combination of them all really create a very alluring evening look. My favourite color of them all is the highlight (shade #2) which really goes well against my dark skin and makes my eyes pop. I don't even have blue eyes and the palette works perfectly for me! I really encourage everyone to try out this series. The only con to this product for me is that the darkest shade really requires some layering but with the help of a good primer, you'll really enjoy this product as a whole.

Did not like this product at all. Maybe I'm just applying it wrong but I feel the colors don't go together well at all, it's hard to blend them so it looks good, and I just get too much of the 80's vibe wearing these colors. I think these kits are made for people that maybe aren't as experienced when it comes to doing makeup and to help them have a professional look but I don't get that at all with this stuff. Better luck next time Covergirl!

I am having a love affair with this eye shadow palette right now. I have brown eyes and chose the corresponding palette. In my experience eye shadows in general are kind of a flavour of the month (slash week, slash day ha ha) but this one is different. The colours are so neutral and versatile I have kept it in my everyday make-up bag (as opposed to my going out/crazier colours make-up bag). I have been using it practically everyday! Never before have I had such loyalty to one eye shadow, day in and day out.

The four colours included in the palette are a slate gray, a lighter gray, a neutral beige and a coppery colour. I am in love with all four. The browns are great for day, the greys are great for smoking it up for night and they all blend together beautifully. The only thing I feel like it could use is a darker brown to do a brown smoky eye. I have been using another dark brown eye shadow to achieve this book, but obviously it would be ideal if this colour was just included in one handy little palette.

The texture of the shadow itself is very smooth, and long lasting. The colour easily lasts all day, which is a bit of a feat with my slightly oily eyelids.
It also comes with a small shadow brush (as in a real make up brush, in addition to one of the pitiful little sponge things that usually come with eye shadows). I am very pleased with this as well because it makes application easier than using the cheapie sponge one, and I can save the brush to be used exclusively for that palette.

These eyeshadow palettes (like other products in the Eyelights line) come in four colours: hazel, green, blue and brown eyes.

Overall a huge thumbs up. I am so impressed with this make-up – it was a very pleasant surprise!
