Covergirl Intense Shadow Blast Eyeshadow in Extreme Green

CoverGirl Intense Shadow Blast (released two year ago) is a range of overpriced cream shadow/primer in the dullest, most uninteresting color palette imaginable. I saw the green on on clearance 75% off at Target so I just grabbed it, thinking it would make a nice early spring toy. 
 The cream shadow comes in a cheap sponge applicator (that looks like it will break apart after the fifth use) and has a thin, watery consistency. Extreme Green is a golden sage green that becomes much lighter/mintier as it's blended out. This is one of the product that start losing its intensity as soon as it's blended and doesn't build up much so I guess the "Intense" and "Blast" are kind of a joke.

 Extreme (not) Green allover the lid, the thin layer of shadow stays on reasonably well but on my hooded lid, the pigment just migrate to my lash line and creates a bright eyeliner effect. I suppose on people with actual fold, this could crease. (Oh, I accidentally chopped a few of my lashes with a bad curler so I...cut the rest off with scissors to make things even...)
I do like it as a no-brainer allover the lid shade, it's brightening and I think (or maybe I am just hallucinating) the color can make my eyes brighter, less black and more brown? Overall: If all the intense shadow blast are sheer/watery like this (Makeup Alleys tells me yes), this would just be a huge rip-off at 8 dollars. Since I paid a little over 2 bucks for it, I guess it's still usable.
