Covergirl Trunaked Peach Punch Eyeshadow Palette ($9) is a peach scented eyeshadow palette that launched with the new Covergirl Peaches & Chocolate Collection for Summer 2018. This palette along with the Trunaked Chocoholic Eyeshadow Palette are both available exclusively at Walmart and Walmart.com.
I mentioned in a few past posts I’m a fan of the Trunaked Eyeshadow Palette formula so I was pretty happy to see Covergirl was extending the line with two more shades. This collection is an obvious spin on the Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette and more recent Peaches & Cream Collection.
When I originally posted about this collection it was a bit confusing. I mean how do peaches and chocolate come together!? But somehow the collection does work. It’s dominated by peaches shades with one really interesting rich chocolate palette thrown into the mix. It’s a cute collection and follows the current “scented makeup” trend that Too Faced started but the drugstore is very busy making all its own with scented options that have released from Maybelline, L’Oreal, and others!
I think at some point I’ll turn around and groan if someone does another scented makeup item but I haven’t quite reached that point yet and the idea is quite novel and cute. I like it and I’ve been bitten by the pokeman bug as I’ve been purchasing every single scented palette that launches lately.
Covergirl Peach Punch Trunaked Eyeshadow Palette is indeed scented like peaches however, the scent is fairly subtle but honestly, it’s a lot stronger than that of the original Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette which was a little weak in the fragrance department. The palette holds eight eyeshadow shades, a dual-ended applicator, and comes housed in Covergirl’s new start white packaging. The palette does have a cute peach cardboard slipcover.
In my prior review of the Chocoholic Eyeshadow Palette I mentioned how confusing the diagram and instructions on the back of the palette were. I also mentioned how I thought it odd the shades didn’t have names since prior TruNaked Palettes did have individual shade names. Stupidly I didn’t realize the back of the palette has a peel back which shed a bunch of light on the weird instructions that read CO1, L4, CR5. After peeling the label back I finally figured out what the hell they were referencing. There’s a large diagram of an eye with points where color should be placed as well as a legend that explains the odd numbers and letters that were being used. And finally they also include a list of the shade names. Thanks to one of my readers who told me about all this as I had no clue.

and the numbers after each letter references the shades in the palette!
This palette isn’t an exact dupe for Too Faced Sweet Peach but it sure as hell has some dupes and can easily recreate some looks from that palette! It contains five mattes and three shimmers all of which have a soft slurry hybrid formula that’s part cream, part powder. These are very soft and have a good deal of dusky kick up, much more than the Chocoholic Palette did but the fall out wasn’t too bad and the colors blended without too much of a mess. The shimmers had the most fall out and kicked up the most powder.
I was a bit disappointed in the mattes as they applied sheer and blended out into nothingness. I experienced the same with the Maybelline Lemonade Craze Eyeshadow Palette. There was a lot of building involved when I was using the mattes. I do wish they had more of the shimmer shades as those are the most intense, silkiest in texture, and had the best pigment.
I love this color range but I have to admit I wasn’t skilled enough to create a look using these shades paired together. The combo of peachy shades with darker chocolate-y shades was difficult to work with. I know some people that can pull off a peachy brown eye look flawlessly but I always feel like I blend the shades into pure mud. I did struggle a little but I don’t regret the purchase as I had a fun time using this palette regardless.
Covergirl TruNaked Peach Punch Eyeshadow Palette is really a fun pick! I do wish it was a little easier to use and that the mattes didn’t blend so poorly but I think I can bring together some looks using it and other shades from collection.
Where to buy
Covergirl Peach Punk TruNaked Eyeshadow Palette is a new palette available for Summer 2018 that contains 8 peach scented and inspired shades of eyeshadow thatâ€™s $9.99 and exclusively available at Walmart. The palette is visually very pretty but I struggled a little pairing up shades to create a look and was a little disappointed but how sheer the mattes applied and blended out.
