Hello gorgeous ladies,
Let me introduce a close dupe of the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette – The Covergirl TruNaked Eye Shadow in “Roses.” Isn’t that a pretty name for an eyeshadow palette that makes you forget your monthly budget for makeup and grab it no matter what?? This is exactly what happened with me.
Look great, naked with TruNaked eye shadow palettes. Universally flattering, neutral eyeshadow shades that are made to be blended together – there’s a n*de for every occasion. Intensely pigmented shades in a range of color and textures – from neutral to smokey and shimmer to matte.
My Experience with Covergirl TruNaked Roses Eyeshadow Palette:
I have to admit that, out of all the three newly-launched eyeshadow palettes by Covergirl, this one is my most favourite and I have been reaching for it more than the other two. Although some people might not find it wearable on an every day basis, but since I lean more towards the plum-purple side for makeup, this is my absolute favourite!
Packaging: This eyeshadow palette comes in quite a sturdy body which has a clear top so that the eyeshadows are visible. It has the name of the product written on it in a beautiful duochrome-y rose gold color. It also comes with an applicator which is by no means flimsy or useless. In fact, it works great for eyebrow highlighting.
Colour: The theme going on in the palette is “rosy-plum neutrals.” This palette contains 8 gorgeous shades with a rose undertone to them. This palette is supposed to be a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette. Refer to the images for shade names and colours.
Pigmentation: The pigmentation of these shadows is bang on! No wonder Covergirl claims it to be a dupe of the popular 50-dollar eyeshadow palette – we know what that is!! All the shades in this palette provide awesome pigmentation.
Texture: The texture of these shadows is very creamy and soft and is by no means chalky or streaky. These shadows blend like a dream. I could not believe how creamy soft these eyeshadows from the drugstore are.
Longevity: The lasting power of these shadows is amazing. I have worn these with and without eye primer and setting spray. It obviously lasts better and shows up better on the eyelids with a primer and setting spray, but even without that, it performs well.
Quality: The overall quality of this Covergirl TruNaked Eyeshadow palette is mind blowing!

Would I Recommend/Repurchase Covergirl TruNaked Roses Eyeshadow Palette?
