Covergirl 'Country Woods' eyeshadow reviews

I bought this Covergirl quad a few months ago and have grown to like it. It is called Country Woods 215 and has four really nice colours.
The first colour is a soft brown, the second one is a sparkly champagne brown colour, the third a pale cream colour and the last one is a warm brown colour.

The colours definitely look great if you like nudes and browns. After using it for the first time I did find that they are not very pigmented so you really need to pack on the eyeshadow to get the colour you want. However what I found was if I used a NYX jumbo pencil in Milk as a base it makes the colours pop and they then do look pigmented.

All the colours are easy to use and blend well. I find that these eyeshadows don't crease which is good because normally most eyeshadows crease on me as I have oily lids. The staying power is not too bad on its own, it will give you a few hours of good use but I always use a primer on my eyes anyway so they stay on all day with a primer.

I have heard mixed reviews on this quad however after trying the eyeshadow base underneath I do like it for a everyday natural look. I like that they are compact and great for my handbag. They retail for $13.95aud.

Have you tried this quad or any other covergirl quad? Do you like them?

they look like great colours to work with & to have with you for travel (rather than having a huge palette to travel with) :)
