Covergirl Jewels TruNaked Eyeshadow Palette ($12.99) is a new, permanent jewel-toned eyeshadow palette that launched for Spring 2017 and will be added to the permanent selection of Covergirl TruNaked Eyeshadow Palettes.
The Covergirl Trunaked Eyeshadow Palettes launched for Spring 2016 and includes a range of other Trunaked offerings such as Covergirl TruBlend Blush. They aren’t for everyone but I absolutely loved the original eyeshadow palettes. They quite remind me of Japanese eyeshadow palettes like KATE Crystallise Quartz Eyeshadow, KATE Jewelry Mode Eyes, Visee Eyeshadow Palettes, or even the Too Faced Back to Sexy Eyeshadow Palette that launched a few year’s ago.
This is one of the “daring” shade selections in the Trunaked Palette range as the other shades available are either nudes, golds, or rose shades which are a little more tamer. This particular palette contains some pretty jewels like blue and purple. There are four get the look guides located in the back of the palette that were created by Pat Mcgrath.
The palette comes housed in a slim-like plastic compact that has a dual-sided sponge applicator for application and the shades include:
- Green Amber
These are great shadows but not everyone will love them. If you already love Japanese eyeshadows you’ll be right at home with them. They have a soft, creamy texture that’s quite like the Maybelline Eye Studio Plush Silk Eyeshadow Quads from years ago. The hybrid formula feels part powder, part cream, with a soft, silky consistency. The buttery, silky formula blends easily on my lids with a soft sparkle finish. I always recommend using a sponge tipped eyeshadow applicator for application as it makes it easier to pack color onto your lid as a regular brush sometimes makes it difficult to pick color up and blend it out.
I was happy that Covergirl extended the shade selections of the Trunaked Eyeshadow Palettes. I hope they do so with more shades in the future as I’m quite a fan of these palettes and think they are well worth checking out if you enjoy Japanese style eyeshadow palettes.
