I’ll let you in on a not-so discreet secret…if I had to name the number one request women e-mail me and ask me about, it would be budget beauty. Even as a beauty addict myself, I enjoy a great bargain and a good find. In the past, I purchased L.A. Colors palettes from the dollar store and Cherry Culture, and I have always been pleasantly surprised at the pigmentation and wear their eyeshadows have. On a recent online shopping haul at Cherry Culture, I purchased these two L.A. Colors 4-Color Baked Eyeshadow Palettes, all with space-themed names. These palettes are brand new, and contain four baked shades that can be worn wet or dry. To see full swatches and the surprising color payoff of these palettes,
When eyeshadows are “baked,” you may be wondering what the purpose of a baked eyeshadow is. Baked eyeshadows are typically best for wet/dry application, and they have superb staying power on your eyelids.
Neptune contains four jewel-toned eyeshadow shades: a fuchsia pink that contains a purple/blue flash, a grape violet, a sky blue, and a metallic gold. I knew I had to have this palette when I was looking at the ones available – jewel tones are so hot right now in everything from fashion to nail polish to cosmetics. These four shades remind me of birth stone colors, or colors you would see on a statement necklace. The colors are rich and pigmented, and have the perfect amount of shimmer to them.
L.A. Colors 4-Color Baked Eyeshadow Palettes are available in fifteen different color combination’s. I had such a hard time choosing which ones I wanted, because they all looked beautiful. Since I am currently in a blue-green eyeshadow phase, I went with “Asteroid.”
Asteroid consists of four sea colored shades: a seafoam green, a Midori lime green, a golden teal green, and a forest green. All four shades in this palette have a gorgeous synergy that allows you to create a sea-inspired look. Just as with “Neptune,” these shades have gorgeous pigmentation and shimmer to them, making them look much more high-end than they really are.
L.A. Colors 4-Color Baked Eyeshadow Palettes are available in fifteen different color combination’s, from bronzes and golds, to grays and blacks, and even some brights like pinks and purples. Here is the real kicker, though. These eyeshadow palettes retail for only $3 each. If that is not a beauty bargain, I don’t know what is!
You can find L.A. Colors products at Dollar General stores, or by using the Store Locator Tool. You can also browse and purchase these palettes online at Cherry Culture, which is where I purchased mine from. Simply click the photograph and link below:
