There are a lot of hidden gems at the drugstore but I’ve always had a hard time finding a really good eyeshadow palette on a budget. That is until I found the new Covergirl TruNaked Eyeshadow Palettes. Today I have the TruNaked Roses to share with you and despite liking the other ones the colour selection on this one was my favourite.
First, the formula on these eyeshadows is smooth and buttery and swatches beautifully. I found most drugstore palettes to feature stiff formulas and always had a hard time getting the colours to show up and blend but that is not the case with this palette. I did find the formula to differ from shade to shade, some of the mattes will kick up more product when touched with a brush while the shimmery shades go on creamy, the darker colors while beautiful work better smoked out, they can blend out beautifully and they won’t pack that much punch that beginners won’t be able to use them.
The shade range is stunning, and all colour tend to run cool and feature, as you’ve probably guessed, rose and red based shades which happen to be my go to shades for fall and winter. The shade range features neutrals, mattes, shimmers and darker, deeper reds which makes this palette versatile and easy to use. One work days it’s sort of a one stop shop for me, I use one of the light shades as an all over base,one of the medium matte shades in the crease for some definition and if I have time I’ll take one of the darker shades in my outer corner and smoke it out with a blending brush.
Overall, this palette is great and for the price you pay you get a lot of product and a nice variety of shades. The formula is one of the best at the drugstore in my opinion, the formula is great, the shade ranges across the board for all the TruNaked palettes are spot on and the packaging is simple and compact making it ideal for travel.
