CoverGirl TruNaked Nudes and Goldens Eyeshadow Palettes

I got my hands on the CoverGirl TruNaked Nudes and Goldens eyeshadows palettes before they were released here because I couldn’t wait. Actually, I didn’t have a good experience with an affordable/drugstore eyeshadow. It was a quad of neutrals that looked muddy on me and would darken over hours of wear. I didn’t like it. But I hate not using makeup or putting makeup to waste, so I just used the dark shades for my eyebrows. Since then, my eyeshadows of choice were from high-end brands. But the postive reviews on the CoverGirl TruNaked palettes got me intrigued and their swatches were promising.

CoverGirl only had three TruNaked palettes at the time–Nudes, Goldens, and Roses. I would have gotten Roses too, but I wasn’t into pinks. Read on further for a review per palette. 🙂

Cheek Polish

The only Addiction item I have (at the moment as I want to get more in the future) is the Cheek Polish in 09 Sensually.

At some point that night, I ended up in Chanel, swatching their Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colour, boy oh boy, I fell in love with one particular shade: 154 Experimente.

Canmake Mermaid Skin Gel UV SPF50+ PA++++

I have a couple of Biore sunscreens that I loved, but they eventually irritated my skin. It’s disappointing because they worked so well under makeup and kept my face matte for nearly eight hours. So I had to do another research and discovered through another oily-skin girl the Canmake Mermaid Skin Gel UV SPF50+ PA++++. 🙂

Anyway, in Canmake’s website, the gel sunscreen is described as so:
