If you havent tried any of the new trios from LA Colors, i suggests you run, not walk to the stores! I am obsessed with them all and only wish LA Colors continue to make such amazing shadows!!! Orchid is beautiful and heres my thoughts..
~~~~~~~~~~~ PRICE & AVAILABILITY ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The LA Colors 3 Color Shadow trios are available at most Dollar Trees, Dollar General and Family Dollar. The availability of shades will vary depending on your location and what they are carrying. The price will vary slightly as well. I can find these for $1 at dollar tree and $1.50 at other stores. Either way, DIRT CHEAP but dont let the price fool you, these are wonderful!
~~~~~~~~ SHADE & FORMULA & PERFORMANCE ~~~~~~
The LA Colors 3 color trios are an amazing soft, super pigmented and creamy shadows. They arent exactly like the new Loreal infalliable shadows but pretty similar. They are pressed well, butter smooth, apply so nicely and blend well. The top layer i find has an metallic overlay but ends up being more matte with a slight shimmer. The finish ends up being more on the satin side. The trio comes with 3 amazing shadows that coordinate together but i love to add different finishes esp mattes into my looks for more day time appropriate looks. These colors in this trio are very soft and pretty. They are super pigmented and smooth with minimal fallout. I do see very little loose powder after dipping my brush but i expect much more with such a cheap trio but its actually not too bad. Whats super nice about these trios is the pigmentation & the feel of the shadows. They almost feel wet or like a foiled shadow. This makes it super easy to apply. The three shadows from left to right are:
1st shadow: a soft pastel pink very nice for the lid area
2nd shadow: a true soft gold
3rd shadow: a dark chocolate bronze brown
All three are nice for day to day wear as well as add a darker color to the outer v for a nite time look. I love this trio & reach for it often. They wear quite a while without fading or creasing. Use a primer (i love to use the LA Colors Concealer for an eye primer & its amazing) and these will wear for around 7 hrs before i see a little fading. Not too bad for a $1 trio. I have collected all i can find and reach for these often & Orchid is a nice trio of basic colors that anyone can enjoy!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ PACKAGING ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The LA Colors 3 Color Trios come in the standard hard plastic rectangular compact. The lid is see through with the LA Colors logo and the back is black with sticker with shade name and ingredients/info. The compact snaps open/shut easily. These arent super flimsy where they will crack or break easily like some drugstore compacts. They are slim enough to fit into bags for travel. Inside is 3 circular pans, bigger than 28mm which means you get a whole bunch of shadow which is awesome. The shadows have a flower pressed into the top. The flower will disappear with use. The trios arent so pretty but they work and they hold the product safely. They include a double ended foam tip applicator for those who may need it. I do use brushes but ive had instances where ive needed one. I love that you get a good size deep pan of shadow.
Overall, if you havent tried any of the newer trios from LA Colors, i highly suggests giving them a try. These are great additions to any makeup collection. I love these and they are so soft and smooth and wear great. I love the pigmentation. I love pairing these with different color cream bases to bring out different undertones. So great! i love my LA COLORS! they are affordable and CRUELTY FREE MAKEUP!

I love this triple combo of eye shadows, there is a pretty pink I use for brow and inner side of the lid, a bronze color for the corner/outside of the eye and a goldish hued shadow I like for highlighting and on the center lid. It wears great, and applies really nicely. I only picked this palette up, but for $1 at Dollar Tree you can't go wrong! The only complaint I have is it is kind of difficult open, I know they need to make it stay shut, but it is pretty hard to open without breaking a thumb nail. Overall I seriously give this palette a 5! If I see another color combo I like I will not hesitate to grab it!
