Hell Yay! Eyeshadow To Buy

 

But chances are, you’ve heard of it.

Yes, it’s the Covergirl drugstore eyeshadow which I happened to pick recently at the Dollar store. I usually past by Covergirl eyeshadows but not this time. I was drawn first to the price and second the pretty colors. When can you get a Covergirl eye brightening eyeshadow palette for only $3.00, right!

I wear shadow almost everyday and I’ll usually opt for neutral tones but I also love to try different shades for a change. You could revisit the previous post by clicking the link here.

Anyways, let’s talk about this Covergirl Exact Eyelights Quad. So the shades I tried, green and blue are quite forgiving on my brown eyes. It’s designed to make your eye look good from day to night.

The bonus is I got an extra Covergirl regular size brush that comes with this eyeshadow. Just junk the sponge applicator in the trash and use your eyeshadow blending brush instead. I love the fact that this brush really works. YAY!

I only have this one shade to show you, which is Radiant Blues, and I enjoyed this quite a bit. Nice color selection in a small palette which I like on myself. I figured it’s sheer enough to let your natural blue eyes looks more popped.

Again, I’m no shadow expert, but I’d say that’s some pretty good colour payoff. And just look at that blue! So pretty. Color swatch without eye base or primer on bare arm. I picked these shadows directly from the pan when swatching. Note to remember, this picture couldn’t do it justice but if you like to get more intense colors with these shadows, try with eye primer on.

As for the feel, it’s smooth to touch with nice pigments on.

But what about how it actually wears?

So like I said, nothing groundbreaking here, just an easy-to-apply product that feels great and looks even better! If you’re looking for a drugstore or high street brand to test out some shadows, I’d say go for it quickly for this product seems to have been discontinued and replaced by the new shade (EYE ENHANCERS 4-KIT SHADOWS) and packaging. But never fear, the closest shade I found is the “Tropical Fusion” 4-kit shadows for blue eyes, babes.

What are your current favourite budget beauty products?

Thank you for taking the time to read. Hope to see you all again on the next one. In the meantime, stay BEAUTIFUL!
