Covergirl truNAKED Jewels Palette Swatches and Review

Thursday 12 January 2017
The fourth and latest addition to the Covergirl truNAKED eyeshadow palette line is the Covergirl truNAKED Jewels Palette. Covergirl has launched a ton of new products for Spring 2017. I feature them in a recent What's New at the Drugstore 2017 video on my YouTube Channel. 

This palette should be showing up in drugstores this month, be sure to keep an eye out on the end aisles, or a separate display - new items often don't have a home in the permanent display yet! 

The Covergirl truNaked Jewels Palette features 8 shades and lists having matte, shimmer and sparkle formulas that can be used wet or dry. It retails for anywhere in-between $12.99 and $14.99 CAD depending on where you track it down, be sure to always look out for a sale. Also surprising to see, world famous makeup artist Pat McGrath designed looks for this palette! I don't think she would put her name on just anything so that is a huge stamp of approval and speaks to the quality. 

I think that all the shades in this line are super creamy and smooth, there is a good bit of powder kick up, which I don't mind if the shadow performs. You may just want to do your eye makeup first if you plan on wearing the deeper shades. I don't think that there are any duds in this palette, every shade is gorgeous. It is also quiet versatile, you can go natural, smokey and use the colour for an interesting pop on the lower lash line. I do however think the palette lacks a mid-tone brown for a transition/crease shade. Personally this is not a palette I can use solely on it's own but I don't mind! I think if you are looking to try out these shades but don't want to spend the big bucks or skip quality, it's amazing. 

An amazing bonus in the palette is the gold shade, it doubles as a stunning highlight. There is no glitter, just an intense shimmer and reflect that looks amazing on the top of the cheekbones. Only issue is that it is wedged between the green and black, so be careful when picking up the colour on your brush. 

Overall, I think this palette is a huge win. It is so great to finally see the drugstore coming out with quality shadows. They still need to have that lightbulb moment about transition/crease shades but we are getting there! If you were debating this palette, shades or formula I'm incredibly impressed and highly recommend.
