FOTD - Featuring Covergirl's Tropical Fusion Quad

I saw this quad on (g)'s blog awhile back and had to have it! I picked up one for me and one for Miss B in BKK since we have been doing make-up swaps and some of the US drugstore brands are difficult to find in Thailand or they are really expensive. For CG? Really!? o_O I snagged these at Ulta for about $5. Well, I love bright colors for summer or evening and thought this quad would do great for a daytime look.

The colors swatched here are without a base and done dry. They are quite light and have a light powder texture. I was hoping these would have more pigmentation, but they didn't. I do not think I will be purchasing any other CG eyeshadows anytime soon. These do show up well with a primer and base used, which I did do below, but the flash slightly washed them out and they appear more muted than they really were.

Products used:

Silk Natural's Date Bait Finishing Powder - I hate using foundation when its hot!
Too Faced Sunny Bunny Bronzer

Urban Decay's Eyeshadow Primer Potion
MAC Pigment in Provence - all over lid

oooo, it's very pretty on you!!! i can't remember if i used cream bases underneath because, like your hand swatch looks, i wanted a bit more color payoff.

LOL. i was just gonna say, "hey, i have that quad!!!"
