CoverGirl has added a new set of shades to their existing Eye Enhancers 4-Kit Shadows collection. One of the newest quads, CoverGirl Eye Enhancers 4-Kit Shadows in Sugar Coated, isn't even listed on CoverGirl's website yet, but it is available in stores.

CoverGirl Eye Enhancers 4-Kit Eye Shadows in Sugar Coated includes an interesting collection of shades: dark forest green, dusty purple, turquoise, and golden peach. I think each of these sheer, shimmery shadows look great individually or as part of other looks -- the forest green in particular is lovely! However, I found it difficult to use all four colors together in a flattering eye look.

The pigmentation is pretty good, and the sheer formula works well for the green, purple and peach shades. I wish that the turquoise had stronger pigmentation so that the bright color seen in the pan would show up more when applied. 

The golden peach is too dark to be used as a true highlighter, at least on my fair skin. I think the palette would create better-coordinated looks if CoverGirl had swapped out one of the four colors for a light highlight shade.

Here's my clumsy attempt to use all four shades from CoverGirl Eye Enhancers 4-Kit Eye Shadows in Sugar Coated. I applied the peach shade from lashline to browbone, then blended the dusty purple into the crease. I brushed the muted forest green onto my eyelid and lined my lower lashline with the turquoise shadow.

I was hoping for a muted mermaid look, but the result is a bit more "grunge mermaid!" I used Too Faced Shadow Insurance Eye Shadow Primer, but perhaps the colors would have shown up better if I used a white/cream base as well. 

What do you think of CoverGirl Eye Enhancers 4-Kit Eye Shadows in Sugar Coated? Do you have any ideas of how to combine the shadows for a fab eye look?
