CoverGirl Turquoise Tempest Eyeshadow

CoverGirl Turquoise Tempest Eyeshadow

CoverGirl Turquoise Tempest Eye Enhancers Eyeshadow ($3.47 for 0.09 oz.) is a muted blue-teal with a semi-matte finish. It has a very subtle shimmer, but it’s hardly noticeable when worn. I found the color was rather like the color in the pan–both had a dusty quality to them–so it didn’t seem in-your-face bright. The color payoff was good initially, but it sheers out very easily, which means it doesn’t apply as well on the lid as it swatches.

It has a tendency to look faded even though it has just been applied if you make an attempt to blend it out on the lid.  The color didn’t fade much over eight hours though there was a bit of fall out, but it was difficult to get true-to-pan color on the lid from the get-go.  The texture was also a little powdery and didn’t always apply evenly.  I found the best results were achieved when you packed on the product and didn’t blend too much–just stick to the edges.

Inglot #372 is more of a true teal in comparison (less blue), while MAC Surf Baby has more green. Milani Teal the Truth is similar but has a very metallic finish.

C+
This is something that would be nice for someone who wants to experiment with brighter colors without breaking the bank, but for someone who loves their brights, this may be more of a disappointment.
