I got really excited when I went into a large Target on a recent road trip. They had a huge makeup section and more Covergirl Queen Collection products than I’ve seen in the stores in my area. I picked up the Desert Bronze Quad and the Natural Hue Concealer in the shade Golden.
Desert Bronze Quad
I really like this quad. I think the shadows are so pretty and used all together are amazing. It’s rare to find a quad where I like all the colors. This is the best drugstore quad I’ve come across in a while color wise. All the shades work in harmony. Now when it comes to wear these do well with primer but there is a little more fallout than I like in the shadow shades. These colors are beautiful and bronzy not chalky but I found doing my eyes before the rest of my face was a must. I didn’t see any other quads that I wanted but I really hope to see more of these sets from Covergirl Queen soon. At around $7 these are great for the money!
I had very high hopes for Covergirl Queens Natural Hue Concealer. I picked up the shade Golden at Target for under $10 with my fingers crossed that it was something like my new favorite Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer. Wouldn’t it be great if I found an alternative to paying over $20 for concealer? These two products look similar and have similar packaging. But thats all they have in common.
Natural Hue is a much better fit for someone with very light concealing needs. I happen to have pits of darkness under my eyes. I can usually go with one coat of Estee Lauder concealer but with this I need a few layers to see a difference. The texture of Natural Hue is a lot thinner. It’s a very light formula and serious darkness/redness/veining are no match for it. I will say it doesn’t crease under the eyes which is fantastic but I wouldn’t repurchase. If you have less serious concealing needs it might be worth a try. But if you are trying to erase blemishes, under eye circles, or scaring skip it.
