First up is the palette called Major Metals
“Hyper-reflective metallic shades: Spoil your lids with fit-for-a-queen coppers, royal maroons and brilliant bronzes. These shadows have a creamy powder formula that glides on a molten metallic finish in one swipe.”
I really love the shimmers in this palette. THey are really pigmented and sparkle like crazy!

And here are the swatches!
Now unfortunately, Major Metals is the only Covershot palette that I own, so I had to do swatches of the other Covershot palettes at my local Sephora store.
OK next is also another all-glitter palette, Bold Glitter.
Now I regret not getting this palette. The shimmers are even prettier than Major Metals! The swatches with indoor lighting doesn’t show off its beauty much, but in real life its amazing!
Bold Glitter (daring & vibrant glitter): A colorful range of saturated shades with an insanely sparkly finish. Layer them over mattes or rock them solo—these shadows are designed to shine!
And closeup photos!
Swatches of the first half! The glitters are quite chunky, as you can see from the swatches below, but they sparkle like crazy.
The artificial light don’t do them justice at all. They are so pretty.
And the second half
The last palette for this post is Prism
This palette gives a dreamy vibe, but hidden with a bit of smokey.
Prism (planetary pastels): These creamy, pastel powders create a spectrum of one-swipe holographic looks. The palette includes 2 duo-chrome shade transformers to give any shadow a game-changing sparkly finish.
