Covershoot Cosmetics Goodies*

See my Covershoot Cosmetics review of their range

So I managed to get my hands on some goodies from Covershoot Cosmetics, they're a newbie company so I was excited to try them all out! CC sent me quite a mixture of their range so I had so many different products to try out. All the bright colours excited me when I opened the box and there's nothing I like more than a good contour palette either!

First off is the two mini eyeshadow palettes, they're such the perfect sizes for travelling with or popping into your handbag. My favourite of the two is definitely the blue smokey eye palette! It reminds me of a few shades in the Urban Decay Smokey Palette, especially the dark blue shade. It's really quite pigmented too, more than I expected. It does have a little bit of fall out but most budget shadows do. The multicoloured palette scared me a little when I saw it, but after seeing Jades look she created with it I was excited! I've been mostly using this to underline my eyes for a pop of colour but I'll definitely get use out of it for Halloween! The shades are quite chalky but still pigmented, they work so much better over a eyeshadow primer too.

These were my two favourite palettes, they're the ones I will get the most use out of on a daily basis. At first I was a little dubious at the size of the eyebrow palette as it's huge compared to any of my other ones, but once I used it I realised how good it was. The brown is a little too red tinged for my brows so I mix the brown and black together to get the perfect shade for me. The only thing I didn't like about this palette was the brushes, they're just too plastic and don't work at all.

The contour palette goes so well with my skin tone (pale and ghostly ha), the highlight isn't too light that it makes me look like a clown and the browns don't make my face muddy. The creams are really easy to blend with my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush and my Beauty Blender, some can be so claggy and hard to blend. I'm not entirely sure on the difference between 'bronze' and 'contour' but I just mix between them to get the shade and look I want.

Bottom Row (L-R) - Eyebrow Palette and Contour Palette

And lastly is the Twist Pot, I love this little handy thing. Seeing as I wear acrylics I really struggle to get polish off without making the acrylics sticky, this clears off all the polish with two or three twists. I did try and use this on my toes, as much as it was awkward, it did work quite well! 

All in all I do love this newbie budget brand and going to love using these all up.
