Hello lovelies, a stunningly sunshiny day today for us! been loving this kind of Autumn weather we have been having. Perfect for doing things outside without wearing too many layers! anyhow I am reviewing this little eye shadow quad from Cover girl. So I'm going to use this one more to step out of my comfort zone and will wear it tomorrow when I volunteer at the thrift shop which I've started doing in the last couple of weeks.
Covergirl Eye Enhancers Eye Shadow Kit 4 Colors #205 Tropical Fusion
I picked it up because I wanted try some bold and bright colors as I tend to go for the usual safe colors as well I feel safe wearing them such as browns, beige and so on. I haven't worn this much however I am surprised at how much pigment is in each color. I picked this up from Target for $3 when they were clearing out a huge lot of make up. I thought well for $3 why not?
Indeed why not? well I have used so far the orange, the teal and the blue just not the lime green even though it is rather pretty. Just not sure how well it will suit my skin tone maybe if I use it to enhance another look as a pop of color with other muted colors perhaps. The colors do seem to compliment each other however would you wear them all at once? probably not. But great for a colorful Spring or party look.
The swatches look so pretty! so vibrant however this eye shadow in particular is a tiny bit chalky but still easy to blend. I do like using it even though it does have a chalky issue.
It consists of four bright shimmery shades, because they are not as vibrant on the skin as in the packaging I do think it would wear well for day time use, especially if using a lid primer to begin with. The product does stay well on my lids however oily skin might have trouble.
My thoughts is that I'm glad I didn't pay full price but I'm not sorry I purchased the product. It's nice to have a variety of different colors but they do not par well with each other as a whole, individual colors look best on the lid or as a pop of color blended with a muted color.
Over all I give this product a 5 out of 10
What are you trying to get out of your comfort zone?
