Product: CoverGirl Ascension Eye Shadow Palette
Claims: Eye Shadow Palette | 12 Shadows | Walmart Exclusive | Intensely Pigmented | Cruelty Free
Size: 6.4 grams or 0.22 oz.
Shades: 12 shadows
Okay can we just go back for a moment to the claims… Do you see that? Number three there? I about flipped my shit when I was scrolling down the beauty aisle at my local Walmart and I saw that the CoverGirl Ascension Eye Shadow Palette was a Walmart EXCLUSIVE! WTF?! Hold the phone! I NEVER, in all my days expected to see name brand beauty product be a Walmart exclusive but here we are with COVERGIRL sporting not 1 (sorry that’s all I have for you at the moment though) but FOUR of these palettes. Once you get over your shock, feel free to scroll down for more information (not that you can get much from a Walmart listing *rolls eyes*).

CoverGirl Ascension Eye Shadow Palette Review
Once I got over my shock at CoverGirl having FOUR palettes exclusive to Walmart, I got down to narrowing down which one I would get. Ultimately, I settled on the Ascension Palette (duh, right?!) which was a mistake in the photography department. White palette and white backdrop just do NOT mix. However, out of the four it was the one that I would actually get some use out of since the other three each contained a blue shadows. When I opened it up I was HORRIFIED. WHY must companies keep doing this thing where some of the pans are regular, some are big, and some are small all in one palette?! It drives me bananas and makes me want to return the dang thing…
If I’m 100% honest, I would have returned this palette if I had purchased it from Ulta or Sephora. Not because of the layout of the pans, that was just a bonus Jonas. No, these shadows are NOT intensely pigmented nor are they rich in color. The whole bottom row barely shows up on my skin and when it comes to blending they just blend to nothing, or mix together and look muddy.
Final Thoughts on the CoverGirl Ascension Palette
Personally, I wish I hadn’t purchased this palette. It does not make me want to purchase any other CoverGirl palettes. I don’t think YOU should purchase this palette. The ONLY thing I got from this palette is that I’m probably never going to be on CoverGirl’s PR list. The next several posts are also palettes so let’s hope it goes better…
