Covergirl Eyeshadow in Tapestry Taupe Review/Swatch

I picked this up when I was at Shoppers Drug Mart another day to return the Yes to Cucumber Facial Wipes (reviews coming soon). I had a $4 off coupon so I decided to pick this shadow up since I’ve heard many beauty gurus mention this in their videos.

According to Covergirl, these Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Shadows are “Simple, single shades with an advanced, stay-put formula. Mix and match them the way you want to create your own combos with matte, pearly or sparkly shades! They blend easily to let the natural beauty of your eyes come through.” I picked it up in Tapestry Taupe, since I am addicted to neutral shadows lately.

Tapestry Taupe is a very universal taupe colour that I think will look great on any skintone. It’s darker and more gold compared to Urban Decay’s Verve, less gold than Urban Decay’s Suspect, and lighter than MAC’s Satin Taupe.

I really enjoyed the formula, its very smooth. Pigmentation is pretty good, and can be built up. I wear this all over lid when I’m too lazy to do any blending before I rush out to class.

The thing that impressed me the most is the wear time. I looked into the mirror 8 hours after I put it on, no creasing whatsoever at all. Then at 14 hours… that’s when I see minimal creasing. I do wearing it over Urban Decay Primer Potion. But I wear that under any shadows, and even Urban Decay and MAC shadows start to crease after 8 hours. Such a great surprise from a drugstore product!

Overall I absolutely love this eye shadow, and I’m so glad I picked it up! If you are looking for an inexpensive, versatile taupe shadow, I hight suggest Tapestry Taupe! What’s your favourite drugstore eyeshadow?

    • Aww thanks! I think it’s just because it’s a very neutral color so blending it in isn’t that hard! I do put on shadows everyday tho… So I guess practice helps? :p

      I am absolutely in love with this color! Especially for how much it costed.. And how great the formula is! I got it for 1.99 + tax! Probably the cheapest make up item I own! Yet the quality is amazing!

    • I am so glad I decided to pick it up after passing by it so many times! It’s so affordable yet with great quality!

      Have you tried other eyeshadows from Covergirl? Are there any ones that you would recommend?

      Thanks fro dropping by and reading my blog! πŸ™‚

      • I like the champagne one and the mint green looking one, best for the clean look πŸ™‚ just the right amount of coolness and shimmer πŸ˜‰ the blush I keep in my essentials bag is also from cover girl πŸ™‚ rose for anywhere πŸ˜‰

    • Haha but then I buy them and I don’t use them….. Eyeshadow is one area i stick to neutral/natural… and I experiment with lip color… just opposite of you! πŸ˜›
