There are just a few eyeshadow brands from the drugstore that I really love enough to buy, and the last thing I expected was to be blown away by the quality of this one! COVERGIRL recently released three new 8-pan eyeshadow palettes, and I’m going to guess they were inspired by the Urban Decay NAKED palettes, because the display at my drugstore said “shades like a leading $50 eyeshadow palette.” With a name like TruNaked, and colors that look similar to some of the shades in the NAKED palettes, it’s a fact that’s kind of hard to ignore.
But those are some mighty claims, considering one UD NAKED palette is sold every 6 seconds. Talk about being popular! So now, we have three COVERGIRL TruNaked palettes to choose from; the Nudes, the Goldens, and the Roses. Today I have the Roses to show you — and I can’t deny that the shades look similar to many of those in the UD NAKED3 palette. At first, I didn’t think these would hold up, but I was wrong. Very wrong.
Please know I’m not claiming these are exact dupes, but I’ll be darned if they aren’t pretty close to several of the UD NAKED3 shades! The quality of these totally caught me off-guard. They don’t feel like other COVERGIRL eyeshadows I own. In fact, whatever formula they’ve used here should be what they use in all of their shadow singles and palettes going forward. Fingers crossed!
