Review & Swatchfest: CoverGirl Eye Shadow Quad in Tropical Fusion


CoverGirl Eye Shadow Quad in Tropical Fusion

CoverGirl's Eye Shadow Quad in Tropical Fusion is one of the few all-color eyeshadow quads I've seen in the drugstore. I purchased it on a recommendation from listeners who suggested I look into cheaper alternatives than the Sigma Resort Palette if I just wanted the colorful side of the palette. For a quad in the $5, I thought it was worth checking out to be able to recommend it to those looking for a (much) cheaper alternative. 

Tropical Fusion contains a satin cobalt blue, satin turquoise, satin peach, and satin chartreuse. It was nice to see that none of these are overwhelmingly shimmery or glittery - a tactic often used to mask poor powder quality among drugstore shadows. Still, I wouldn't say these offer fantastic pigmentation, but they are smooth and all but the cobalt are evenly pigmented. The cobalt is buildable, but comes off as s lightly splotchy at first. Those looking for ultra-pigmented brights might be unsatisfied with this. Luckily, the staying power is good, especially when worn over a primer, so those wanting a fun, colorful addition to their makeup for the summer might enjoy this. 

Overall, the $5 price tag is definitely worth it for those wanting an affordable, accessible way to add a trendy pop of color to your makeup, but I wouldn't recommend it as an alternative to those wanting the vibrant shades in the Resort Palette. Another alternative are palettes like those from BH Cosmetics. They recently came out with California inspired palettes that contain a manageable amount of eyeshadows (for those that are intimidated by the large number in the 88 or 120 palettes, or just feel like they don't need that many shadows) and some face products for as low as $9.
