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!
