Hey gorgeous beauties, the festive season has just knocked in and this calls for a lot of work and preparations to be done before we hit into the celebration mood. So have you all taken up the house cleaning parade or are still planning over from where to start. Well I have divided the cleaning job for each Sunday and this is it, my vacuum cleaner is my savior here and only 3 shifts of Sundays will get my job done.
I know I know… I am not supposed to talk about house cleaning in this post and let us now get talking about the product to be reviewed today.
Today I shall review the covergirl eye enhancers 4 kit shadows in SMOKEY NUDES.
This quad was a part of the new Covergirl Katy Perry Bombshell Collection launched earlier this year and was a limited edition.

Net Wt: 5.5 gm ( 0.19 Oz )
Packaging: Unlike the usual dark blue pallets of the quads, this palette came in a white pallet and has a transparent lid. I guess the white packaging is for the limited edition quads only. The quad is cute and compact and easily sneaks in your bag.
Texture: Though these are powder eye shadows but they are not very powdery. These are soft and smooth and blend without much efforts. All the shades in the quad have micro shimmers and yet the texture of these is not gritty or chunky.
Shades: Beginning from left to right, the first shade is a shimmery highlighting shade, the second shade is a taupe color with some hints of mauve, the third shade is gray – silver color which too has beautiful shimmers and the fourth shade is a brown shade with plum undertones.
Pigmentation: The shades need multiple swipes to get opaque coverage but this does not signify that they extremely sheer shades. These shades have a little less than mediocre color pay off and the fourth shade has the best color pay off among all the four shades.
Applicator: A dual end sponge applicator comes with this quad. The applicator provided is of absolutely no use and wears off in just one use.
My Take: I really liked the colors in this quad and the fourth shade is my favorite among the four shades of this quad.
Since they are smokey nudes, I was not expecting dense pigments; also my earlier experience with the CG quad influenced my expectations. But this quad proved to be a better bid. All the shades will show up perfectly only with a good base. The last fourth shade was nicely pigmented and did not take in many efforts to build the color and I really wish that the other three shades too had a better color pay off.
But since the shades did not have any fall out, so building the color did not bother me much. All the colors blend easily and stay for long with a proper base underneath without creasing or fading.
What I Like About Covergirl Eye Enhancers 4 Kit Shadows Smokey Nudes:
- Cute and Compact packaging.
- Soft and smooth texture.
- The shimmers are not gritty.
- Blends easily.
- No fallouts.
- Stays for long with a proper base.
- The colors are good and go well with the name, perfect for smokey looks.
- Good value for price.
What I Like Don’t About Covergirl Eye Enhancers 4 Kit Shadows Smokey Nudes:
- I wish the color pay off was a little better.
- Limited edition so availability is a big issue.
- Sponge applicator is absolutely of no use.
Will I Recommend: This is a nice quad and beginners will like it. Experts may not like it much and should give this quad a pass.
