You’d have to agree when I say that 2015 was the year of “The Nudes”. It seems every drugstore brand released their versions of the famous Urban Decay Naked Palettes. Some were good and some were so-so. As we near the end of 2015, Covergirl has just released 3 new permanent 8 pan eye shadow palettes and takes it a notch higher, by boldly claiming that there shades are “like a leading $50 eye shadow palette”. Say what??? Well they say you should save the best for last and that’s exactly what happened here! The year is almost over and Covergirl rolls out the best eye shadow palettes of the year!
These shadows are all VERY pigmented and each one is buttery soft. There is a nice mix of mattes, shimmers and satins and not a single one is dry or chalky. When applied the shadows blend out beautifully, and I don’t even need to use a primer with these shadows! But because they are so soft and buttery, you only need to swipe your brush over the product once, as you will pick up all the product you need. Over swiping will cause fallout. I know with my other pans from Maybelline, L’Oreal and Revlon I need a few swipes of product….but not with these shadows!
I like that Covergirl named all the individual shades, and they are listed on the back of the packaging. The palettes each contain a beautiful selection of colours. Let’s take a closer look:
Gorgeous palettes with superb shadows that are so buttery soft and pigmented. These palettes are AMAZING and I highly recommend them. Such a wonderful surprise! Well done Covergirl. Now available at Shopper’s Drugmart, and Rexall in Canada for $14.99. In the US, at Bed Bath & Beyond for $9.99.
