Good for a natural look. By natural i mean VERY natural. It defines and can highlight but good for just adding definition to your eyes. I wouldn't buy it again only because I have so many neutrals. They are good, though.
Can I just say how much I LOVE THIS! These shadows are NOT matte. They have a little shimmer in them, but it looks matte enough when you swatch it. They stay put all day, and this is great for someone who just wants to contour their eyes. I just wish they had a little mirror so it's good for traveling!
Country woods is a verry nice eye shadow palette,that contains:a pale satin brown-bronze,a pale bronze,a pale satin nude,a pale matte caramel. It goes really well on the application,it last fairly long. For a more softer look! Love it!
I absolutely love this palette, it's such a great palette to take on the go for weekend trips or to just use everyday. Its also very versatile, I like to use the color "Mink" all over the lid as a quick eye opening/enhancing shade for a time pinch moment or for just a effortless everyday shade and sometimes i'd use the shade "coffee" in the crease as a nice transition color. For a nigh-time look i'd apply the darkest shade "Mocha" all over the lid with "Mink" in the center and "coffee" as a transition color again. I don't care too much for the highlight color since it's a pretty basic beige. I love using Wet n Wild's Brulee
I love this palette and "Mink" has become my all time HG eyeshadow out there and for the price compared to HE products you can't beat it. The packaging can be better as every purchase of CG quads the lid always breaks off.
This is my go-to eye shadow! The colors blend so well with my skin and look very natural. The color also lasts all day without having to be touched up. No complaints here!
I love the 2nd color (the shimmery peach champagne) but it looks very simliar to the 1st and 4th color. The 3rd white color is very chalky. Lasting power is alright with a primer, there are better eyeshadows for the price and I'm not sure why covergirl put out a quad with such similar colors!
It's no Shimmering Sands, but it's a nice nude eye palette for us thrifty shoppers nonetheless. My favorite shadow is the one second from left - it's very shimmery and looks nice alone, so it's good for those days when you don't really want to spend too much time on your face. The highlight color doesn't do much for me, as I have a penchant for obnoxiously sparkly browbones, but it's decent enough. The two remaining colors, presumably the crease colors, are nice as well, but a little too similar for my taste. I plan on using it up just so I get my four bucks worth, but I don't think I'll buy it again, just because there's other stuff I like better.
Incidentally, "Country Woods" is abbreviated as "CNT WDS" on the barcode, which means that I will forever refer to this as the Cunt Woods palette. It makes me laugh every time.
this is good for a natural eye
but for me its nothing special
the colors are great color payoff and i do use them here and there
but i just seem not to reach for this palette as much
will not buy again but its a good palette :)
I loveee this!! So pretty whenever your in the mood to wear a really natural looking eye but it still looks put together and polished. I think it looks really great with brown eyes, it seems like it brings a twinkle to the eyes and you just can't look away. I use either coffee or mink (coffee if I want a more natural look/mink if I want a little more sheen) on the lid and mocha as the crease color and of course barely beige as the highlight. Barely beige is such an awesome highlight on the inner corners and brow bone, it doesn't matter how much I apply, it always looks natural. I really really recommend this quad. The color payoff is beautiful and I have already repurchased this and I will do it again.
I got this product as a gift for this last Christmas, as I had wanted a tri or quad of some neutral colors. I tried out the colors shortly after receiving it, & I absolutely love it. The colors are all really pretty, & quite pigmented, so they stay on for most of the day without fading (I don't use real primer, I just use lipgloss... I know, I'm cheap). The first color is like a "hot chocolate with milk in it" color-- it's a light brown, & it goes well with medium-colored skin tone. The second color is my favorite. It's a little bit darker than the first, but it's sparkly. It adds a little "pop" to your eyes. It's good to wear with a bright colored shirt, or when you want the main focus to be your outfit. The third is a really fair color, which I don't use much, just because it clashes with my skin tone. I do use it on the inner corners occasionally to blend two or three of them together. & the last color is a little more of the firewood color. I use it on my crease to add more depth to the look. Overall, I absolutely love this product, & I will definitely buy it again. continued >>
