So in the less-than-a-week since I purchased it, I have absolutely fallen in love with CG's single eye shadow in Tapestry Taupe. I've worn it on my lid every day, and I'm finally convinced that CG has actually reformulated in the last decade and this is not the powdery crap I used in middle school. So I did exactly what I said I'd do in my haul - I went back out and purchased the single shadow in Champagne and the trio in Shimmering Sands. I haven't had a chance to use them yet, but I'm so excited to use them in a look tomorrow. I can totally see myself going away for a weekend at CDBP's and just tossing the trio in my makeup bag - even simpler than the Naked palette! At $3.15 and $4.50 a pop, I'm really not too worried about not liking these (even though based on the swatches I'm sure I will).
The only thing I'm not wild about with this product is the packaging. Not only is it super light weight and cheap feeling, but I hate the room that is taken up by the
incredibly pointless and stupid sponge-tipped applicator. Who actually uses those? Am I the only one annoyed by them?
