Beauty Buzzles & Babblings

Beautiful Eyeshadows for the Budgeted Diva

Good evening my Beauty Buzzlers & Babblettes!

So I am guilty as a makeup artist and as a woman in going into stores looking for the next awesome product to use.  And in my field, some of these products can become very pricey especially when looking for a quality product that delivers as promised. And no I do not always want to spend the equivalent of what may end up being the cost of an arm & a leg on products......in some cases.  However, on my last visit to Dollar Tree, yes you read right, Dollar Tree, I looked down & noticed this really cute eyeshadow palette.  It came packaged in this cute little black book-like cover with 12 colors in it.  I picked it up & started to analyze it before I decided to buy it.  I figured it's only $1 that I'm spending so what the heck?  Ladies, ladies, ladies, that $1.06 investment blew my socks off!! I came home to try it out & when I tell you pigment galore?? Geez! I couldn't believe what a gem I found! It was L.A. Colors Little Black Book of Eyeshadows.  Back a few years ago when I first purchased a pallette I admit I wasn't too thrilled with what I got.  The colors were a bit muted & it just faired kind of ashy on my skin tone.  But Beauty 21 Cosmetics maker of L.A. Colors reformulated some things apparently & delivered a set of shadows that can easily stand up to some of my pricier name brand shadows.  There are 3 palletes to choose from: Natural (has all of your neutral tones i.e. corals, bronzes, beiges, tans & browns), Glam ( pinks, purples & greens) & last, Smokey (all the colors to create the classic black smokey eye, purples & blues).  The packaging comes with a guide to help you create some fantastic looks on your own.  I currently own Natural & Glam.  They blend very well due to the almost creamy feel of the powders (due to fine milling of the powder) & the shimmer is not overpowering.  

If you are a budgeted diva but want the look of the luxury lines, this can be one of your go to products.  I absolutely love it! Now that the holiday season is upon us, why not surprise the makeup lover in your life with all 3 of the palettes.  They are packaged really cute & they are small enough to fit in your purse, cosmetic bag or your makeup box.  

You can visit the L.A. Colors website to get a preview of this amazing product!

Sweet, I'll be picking some up today! I hate buying pallets because it's hard trying to get some quality colors for my complexion. I'll be broke trying to buy MAC, Nars, and Naked all the time, so I'm hoping this works!!
