REVIEW: Cover Girl Eyeshadow Quad in "Pure Romance"

Hey Guys!
I hope you are having a good weekend. Here is a quick review on the Cover Girl Eyeshadow Quad in "Pure Romance" I picked up a few weeks ago. In my opinion, the eyeshadows in this quad are not to my standard for quality. The colours ARE soft to the touch and blend fairly easily, but with this said, they are VERY sheer. The quad is nice for a slight pop of colour for during the day that is not too dramatic. I probably wouldn't purchase this quad again because the shadows do not last as long as I would like and aren't overly pigmented. If you have a good base (i.e., Urban Decay Primer Potion or Too Faced Shadow Insurance) than you shouldn't have too much of a problem with longevity. I also bought one of the Wet N' Wild Color Icon Trios which is in the same colour family as this which I still need to test out. I already feel like the quality is going to surpass this one. Have you tried any of the Cover Girl Quads? What are your thoughts?

I used the lightest colour as a highlight, the second lightest on my lid, the next colour in my crease and the darkest colour in my outer 'V' to deepen the crease.

  1. I have given up on CoverGirl. I have hated very product I have tried, and the shadows just plain suck.

  5. I don't really like covergirl. I heard terrible things about their shadows and esp. lipsticks, so I'm not even gonna bother simply considering buying their stuff.

    You look gorgeous btw : D

  6. Hey Cheryl, I really like this look, everything you try looks good on you.
    Personally, im not a fan of the CG quads those with 4 colors. I think theyre chalky, idk. I only use 2 of the CG trios, the quads with three colors. I love the 110 Shimmering Sands and the 125 Dance Party. From the 110 trio I only use the light pinkish color and the dark brown and from the 125 quad i only use the lavender-purple color in the middle, the other two are not as pigmented. But all of the 110 quad colors (Shimmering Sands) are pigmented and beautiful!! You should try these! :)

  7. I just recently purchased the one for Brown Eyes that they sell. And well I can't say I really like it. The colors were really light as well and they were so hard to blend. I usually am not into Cover Girl except for their mascaras! Great review!

  11. Those colors look lovely! I shall have to try this one. Being vampire pale, I love Covergirl for their sheer colors. Everything else is too overpowering on me.
