I had picked up 2 of these at Dollar Tree around Xmas 2013, & I just came across them again recently when I was shopping my own stash & going thru stuff. These were a buck a piece. They would have made gr8 stocking stuffers!! There are 15 little e/s in a cardboard compact w a binder to keep the top on. They colors are quite vivid (I got Natural) like browns/beige/orange which are colors I adore. This is very good for throwing into ur bag or traveling coz it's so teeny tiny. I regret not buying more of these as backups. They are exactly the perfect colors (on me!), good quality esp w an eyeshadow primer (like WnW Fergie or LA Colors makes a good 1, also u can do NYX JEP in Milk), & price wow I mean how can they even turn a profit on this for a buck?? It's just so darned cute. There is a little bit of fallout, but but not that bad, I can overlook it for a dollar. This isn't MAC or UD, but it's still good!! This would be gr8 for putting in a gym bag/overnite bag/travel, to throw in ur purse, for a young lady starting out her makeup collection, or any1 on a beauty budget or wants to treat themselves for a little something (no need to feel guilty for spending a dollar; this is a dollar well-spent!), & as I mentioned a stocking stuffer/secret Santa at work thing. You can make so many different looks w these e/s, it's crazy insane that this is so good of quality & long lasting on me (I have VERY OILY SKIN/eyelids!). I regret not getting any other colors or any more than 2 (okay. I can be a hoarder!!). These are lovely. <3
Holy fallout. I love the copper penny eyeshadow. I wish I were able to find it elsewhere in the LA Colors collection. This is a useful neutrals collection but the packaging not great and the fallout is the deal breaker. I would only buy this again if I were able to find it at Dollar Tree, forgot my eye shadows and there were no other LA Colors shadows there. Otherwise, I will not purchase this again.
I have the natural and the smoky editions of this product. I found the smoky one to be gritty and not very useful. However, I really like the natural edition and I actually bought a back up. The fifteen colors range from cream to beiges to light browns to gold to coppers and burnt orange. I think the coppery ones are the most flattering. The colors are pigmented and last along time, as a previous reviewer noted. The first time I used this I just stuffed it in my purse as I was running out the door, but I was presently surprised with the result of a hasty application. One problem with the packaging is that the elastic band holding it together broke easily so I keep it closed with a rubber band. I recommend this for times when you want to take along weightless makeup or not carry a bag that looks stuffed..
$1 for 15 decently pigmented eyeshadows is awesome in my opinion. I think some of the colors are more pigmented than others, which is fine because again, not much loss on these shadows. I won't wear them that often, but I do think this is worth it just to play around with eyeshadow looks.
Found this at Dollar Tree and thought it was a nice idea. It's a small compact that had 15 shimmery shades in it. I got the one called "Natural." While the shimmer is nice, I find that the colors don't go on as pigmented as they look, which is a shame. Plus there is a lot of fall out, making it pretty messy. The duel-end applicator isn't of great quality either. I'll still use it, but I don't recommend it and I won't buy it again. At least it was only a buck... classic example of you get what you pay for.
Edit: The one saving grace of this product is the lasting power of the shadows. I've been wearing them all day and they haven't faded that much. I am pleasantly surprised.
