{glossies made me do it} covergirl trunaked eyeshadow palette in roses

Last month for my first Glossies Made Me Do It post, I focused on food by making Candy-Cane Dipped Oreos; but for February I'm back to beauty. For those of you who don't remember, Glossies Made Me Do It is a monthly feature I partake in with Lauren of Shooting Stars Mag and Ashley of Happy. Pretty. Sweet. wherein each one of us selects something {a recipe, a book, a hairstyle...} from a monthly magazine {glossy}, and try it for ourselves {made me do it}. Find out what glossies made me do for February; and visit both Lauren and Ashley today to see what glossies made them do!

I mysteriously began receiving Better Homes & Gardens magazine a few months back; and while I typically don't pay much mind to it, when the February 2017 issue arrived in my mailbox bearing Red Velvet Heart Cookies on the cover, I so had to peek inside - and that is where I stumbled upon the Editor's Picks piece entitled Coming Up Roses {page 16}, which led me to the CoverGirl TruNaked Eyeshadow Palette in ROSES.

I've been curious about CoverGirl's TruNaked Palettes since they first hit drugstore shelves last year, but given a lackluster experience with Maybelline's The Blushed Nudes Palette, I've been leery to try them out. For Glossies Made Me Do It, however, I figured I'd take one for the team and give it a shot, and OMG am I glad I did!

A supposed dupe of Urban Decay's iconic Naked3 Palette, CoverGirl TruNaked Eyeshadow Palette in ROSES is a truly impressive drugstore offering. Though it offers half the shades of the UD Naked3; each one is buttery-soft and smooth, and packs incredible pigmentation. Additionally, the eight shades included within this neutral, rose-toned palette are a fantastic mix of matte and shimmers, with a great selection of transition and crease shades, so you can create a multitude of eye looks without having to reach for other palettes {always such a pain when you have to do that, right?}.

Shades {from wrist to elbow}: Mousse, Almond, Champagne, Baby, Rose Gold, Copper Rose, Dusk, and Mauvergine. My personal favorite shades are Rose Gold and Champagne, with Almond acting as a brilliant highlight shade for the browbone, and the three darkest shades {Dusk, Mauvergine, and Mousse} working as beautiful crease colors.

With an eyeshadow primer, the majority of these shades last for upwards of 10 hours, with just the slightest hint of fading - a factor that I find waaay impressive for an under $10 drugstore palette. I would highly highly recommend this one for you ladies who either have blue or green eyes or adore mauve-based neutrals. I think I may have to try out another TruNaked Palette in the future - perhaps the Goldens collection!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this series hahah, I think I went mad over it last month too? But such a fun idea and a great way to discover new things! That palette looks amazing and 10 hours with a primer under 10$ sounds too good though? Love the color range too. So pretty! Have a lovely weeend babe! Xx
