Covergirl Trunaked Eyeshadow Palette are a new 8 pan eyeshadow palette available in three shade selections that launched with the Covergirl Spring 2016 Collection.
If you recall we got a few Covergirl Eyeshadow Palettes for Spring 2015 which I reviewed and absolutely loved as they have a slurry formula that quite reminds me of eyeshadows from Japan that you can get from brands like KATE, Visee, etc…!
One of the more recent brands to embrace this style eyeshadow was Too Faced when they launched their The Return of Sexy Eyeshadow Palette for Fall 2012. If you have this particular palette and love it you’re bound to adore the Covergirl Trunaked Eyeshadow Palette. If you hate this palette, well, you’re likely not going to enjoy Covergirl’s formula. I personally love the texture, consistency, and formula of Japanese Eyeshadows as they have a creamy powder consistency that’s an absolutely joy to apply plus they look amazing on eyes.
Let’s tale a look!
Covergirl Trunaked Eyeshadow Palette are a permanent part of Covergirl’s Collection come Spring 2016 and each will $11.49 with a range of eight eyeshadows. They come housed in a slim-line plastic case with a dual-sided sponge applicator for application on eyes.
Covergirl’s Eye Shadow Quads are available in six shade selections and contain four shades each. I personally have two of these quads and I can see a few shades that looks similar to the one’s available in the Trunaked Palettes.
These are wonderful but not everyone will like them or agree with me on that. They have a soft, creamy texture that blend very easily and apply beautifully on lids. Although they do have some minor fall out during application. The consistency of the shadows is very soft, even softer than the formula of the quads, and almost has a hybrid-like feel that’s part cream, part powder. If you loved the Quads, you’ll love these Palettes. The buttery consistency of the shades is simply amazing, ’nuff said. The palettes each contain a mix of shimmery sparkly eyeshadows as well as mattes. There is absolutely no difference between the two finishes in regards to formula. They both have an incredible texture! I would suggest using the sponge applicator they come with to apply though as I always find it difficult to blend slurry eyeshadows like this with regular makeup brushes. It’s best to apply using the sponge eyeshadow applicator as you can pack color on way easier.
According to the packaging these are “shades like a leading $50 eyeshadow palette” which I guess is a nod at Urban Decay Naked but honestly, I think it’s like comparing apples and oranges as these are nothing like what Urban Decay offers.
None the less these still have a beautiful consistency and I absolutely loved them! Covergirl even took the time to list and name each shade in the back of the compact!

Covergirl Roses Truenaked Eyeshadow Palette Shades:
- Rose Gold

All in all the Covergirl Trunaked Eyeshadow Palette are incredible but as I said above you’re either going to love or hate this type of formula. Personally it was a love for me and I can’t wait to find the other shade selection at my drugstore.
