I swear these eyeshadows are pretty much comparable to MAC. They are so pigmented and have that beautiful iridescent metallic sheen that MAC eyeshadows have. These are so much more worth its price (About one dollar per eyeshadow!). I was only able to buy 3 shades because the Sally stores I went to were almost sold out of all the colors. I'm going to have to wait patiently for them to restock. These are seriously a steal!!!

This review is for three of the colors: blue, green, and purple.
-Unfortunately, none of these have actual names or numbers on the back to identify them by, so we're just going by what is obvious.
These are baked shadows, which can be used wet or dry, without destroying the quality of the shadow.
First, these are very small shadows, I think the pan itself is maybe the size of a quarter...maybe a little smaller, but the domed top definitely makes up for that. So, really...these have more shadow in them than a regular pan of MAC shadow, and only for 0.99.
I found these up at the counter at Sally's next to all of the other 0.99 SallyGirl stuff. There were more colors to choose from, but these caught my eye more than the others did. I may pick up some more at some point.
I've only used these dry, so far, but they are surprisingly pigmented and long-lasting for 0.99 each -wow!! I'm able to pick up a decent amount of pigment on my brush with little effort and it spreads across my primed lids rather well. As it is a baked shadow, it's not a creamy feeling texture, but it's not overly powdery either.
The containers seem pretty sturdy. I carried one around in my little emergency bag in my purse for a couple of days and it was absolutely fine. The packaging was fine, as well as the shadow itself.
I haven't dropped any of these yet, so I don't know how they are in durability when it comes to that kind of stress.
Again, incredibly pigmented with bright, beautiful coloring. I'm shocked at how long these last with no fading and minimal creasing. I wear these 'at least' 10 hours at a stretch with no touch-ups or re-applying.
And here I've done wet/dry swatches on my bare arm:
I would definitely buy more of these and plan to pick up a back-up of the purple as well as some more colors from this line.

Oh my gosh. I absolutely love this eyeshadow. It is so amazing. I got 5 shades, and they are all amazing. It might look like there is not much procduct in the container, but there is a really good amount. I love baked eye shadows, in general. It makes a very pretty sheer color and a buildable amount. I plan on getting more soon.

Cheap little gems. Without primer, color pay off wasn't that great for me. But on top of a primer, great! Try it wet for the foiled look. I haven't tried all the colors (mostly because I couldn't rationalize ANOTHER blue or green!) but they are definitely worth the 99 cents (cheaper if you have a Beauty Club Card)

I don't use eye shadow very often, but I really wanted to try a soft, shimmery gold. This brand was recommended on the mu board, so I was happy to find Sally's did have the right shade of gold. It perfect and way better than just about any shade of gold from the drugstore, imo. Great find and for less than $1!

This eye shadow, in any of the colors, is beautiful used dry, but AMAZING when used wet. Best payoff of any shadow I think I've ever used, especially the teal and the dark purple colors.

This is the best product i ever bought from Sally Beauty Supply. I bought all the eyeshadow they had. Knowing me it's kinda hard trying to find the best color for my skin tone, thank god i found this b/c i was going to MAC and spend all my hard earned money on eyeshadow LOL. I hope they come out with more colors in the future.

Great Product! Found these at the checkout counter for 89 cents. They come in a tiny cute round compact and have a raised bubble shape like most baked eyeshadows. I purchased a light gold shade, smokey gray, lilac, purple, goldish pink, and teal. All of the colors apply smoothly and have a creamy texture. Amazing quality, if you're ever at Sally's, grab some!

I bought 'Gold' today and was pleasantly surprised that something so cheap could be such so good. I make most of my eye shadows, but I absolutely loved this color and am glad I bought it (for a mere $.89 with my card, at that!)
It's a very sheer shimmery gold. Not very yellow but more like the color of 12 carat gold. There are little flecks, almost as though the shadow wasn't milled down to a uniform grit, but I actually like it like that. It's not blatantly obvious like glitter, but it's still eye catching. I found that it made for a fantastic highlighter.
The only problem with this shadow is that it isn't very build-able. What you put on the first time is really all you get. Which is why I use it in places where I just need a slight sheen.
I'm going back tomorrow to grab more!
Edit: I went back and bought 'Bronze' and 'Light Pink'. The name are a little deceiving because 'Bronze' is more of a shimmery brown and the 'Light Pink' is more of a lilac. However, they are beautiful sheer shadows.

I picked one of these up on a whim while standing in line the other day. I got the Grey/Purple. I figured that for only 89 cents, if it didn't work I could just toss it. Holy Cow! This stuff rocks! The payoff is amazing, and it lasted all day long! Granted, I do use a primer on my lids, but this stuff really sticks to it. I had absolutely no creasing or fading, and it actually stayed vibrant. I couldn't believe it. Even more expensive shadows don't last as long as this. I'm not sure about just using it dry, because what I do is put a primer on my lids, wet my brush a little and pat the shadow on. Then I use another brush and pat on the shadow dry. I'm definitely stocking up on these!

When doing my usual Sally's run I saw these at the counter along with the regular connecting e/s (which I have 87626534 of). I've never tried baked eyeshadow before so I decided to pick one up and give it a shot. There's currently 12 shadows listed on the Sally's website ranging from silver to dark green. The selection was a bit picked over at the store so I grabbed Light Pink.
Light Pink is a ginormous misnomer. This is a light/medium shimmery purple with some pink mixed in. I used my ELF e/s brush to apply it and was pleased I could get a sheer wash or build it up for a more dramatic color. I can't quite put my finger on it, but there's something about the texture of it I love. When applied, it almost looks like I have a cream e/s on instead of a powder one. I'm also pleased the shade didn't enhance my panda bear punched in a bar fight under eye circles. I'll add more after I've been wearing it more and will definitely pick up the other shades and post pics.
For 89 cents at Sally's, so far so good!
Update - I couldn't resist, I went back to Sally's and grabbed more. :p Got Silver, Gunmetal Grey, Sage, Bronze, Dark Aqua, and Dark Green. They're swatched in that order L to R on my arm above and in the other pic. I also put Light Pink on there as well as the last one on the right. Also, I failed to mention earlier that the package doesn't have the name of the color on it, just a number. Here's the list of the color names and corresponding number for future shopping reference. :)
Light Pink - 388126
Shadow Rose - 388125
Bronze - 388124
Pearl White - 388123
Dark Aqua - 388129
Grey/Purple - 388128
Dark Purple - 388127
Gold - 388122
Sage - 388121
Dark Green - 388120
Silver - 388130
Gunmetal Grey - 388131
I'm taking all of them with me on vacation so when I get back I'll post more. :)
Update - This stuff is the bomb. If you wet them, the payoff is awesome! They stay put, too. I used Dark Green (a dark green/aqua color), Dark Aqua (true dark aqua), and Bronze (a true bronze) as liners and they all survived midnight fishing on a very, very windy beach. Buy them, buy the, buy them!
