Revlon Colorstay Smoky Shadow Stick~Flare

I bought this product and I had it in my mind that I was going to hate it.  I have heard so many bad things about Cover Girl's version (that I have never tried), so I expected this to be bad.  But then again, since Revlon waited a bit to release these, I assumed that they had learned from Cover Girl's mistake.  At first swatch, I did not think this was going to be that good since it did not seem that pigmented.  But once the shadow stick was applied on my eyes and was softened up a bit, the pigment was much better.   I picked out Flare, which has a lavender on one end and a plum shade on the other.  The combo made a really pretty and simple smoky eye.  However, there are a few things I do not like about the colors: the lavender looks really frosty and the plum has small pieces of glitter.  You don't notice the glitter when it is applied, but the lavender still looks frosty.  It was not too bold.  I expected this to begin creasing soon after application, but it did not.  In fact, I did not notice any creasing throughout the day.  The staying power was okay.  It did fade some after about 5 or 6 hours hours, but that could be the result of the weather (99 degrees and 90% humidity).  I did get home around 10:30, and it was still in good shape.  The shadows are really smooth and can be applied with no tugging.  I did find blending to be a bit of a pain, but that could be an operator error since I always use powder shadows.  I like this product, but I can't say that I love it.  I got this for $7.69 at Target.  I'm sorry that I cannot compare it to the CoverGirl version, but I did not want to waste the money.  If anyone has tried the Almay version, I would like to hear your thoughts.
