REVIEW: L.A. Colors 5 Color Metallic Eyeshadow

So a friend and I were at Family Dollar yesterday shopping for ingredients for home-made makeup brush cleaner. (I will post how to make it soon!) and while looking for that stuff I stumbled upon L.A. Colors 5 Color Metallic Eyeshadow. At first I was like "Nah, dollar store eyeshadow???". But it was so sparkly and cute I figured I'd give it a try. And plus, it was only $1.60. This morning I used it and loved it. I created a light, blended Day-Time look. For what I paid for it it was pretty good quality and the pigmentation was decent. I even applied it with the sponge tip applicators it came with and those weren't bad either. I did however, blend them with a little smudge brush. Pretty colors, nice sparkles, fab price. Definitely a bargain buy. Strange though, the palette I got which is named "Darling" (BES431) now, and I am not 100% sure, but appears to called "Unforgettable" (EP 24) on the website. Believe me though, the "two" differently named palettes look identical. Also, check out your local Family Dollar. :] Thanks for reading!
