I haven't bought eyeshadow that wasn't high end in years, I succumbed to LA Color's 12 color eyeshadow palette in Nude at the dollar store out of curiosity. Let's start with the pros: it's a dollar. The colors are neutral. It has some pigment. And here's the cons: the pigment is poor for many of the colors, they hardly apply despite looking dark in the pan. Some of the colors barely differentiate from one another. Tons of fallout. When layered they become mixed and muddy. All the colors, except two, have tons of shimmer and apply quite frosty. Would I repurchase: no, next time I'll use my dollar for a bag of saladitos.

For a dollar, these really are impressive. They aren't high end by any means but they perform just as well as many of the top brands in my collection. When swatched/applied right next to similar colors from other brands, I can't tell a difference.Obviously these need a primer, can be a bit chalky and random colors don't apply as well. But the bright colors apply true to pan, blend well, and do what you want them to. The metallic are beautiful and worth grabbing just for how shimmery they are. I wouldn't count on these lasting ten hours but they more than work for a night out or when I want to play with color.

I have one of these in the color "Flaunt" and it's a very bright pink. I've never been a fan of wearing highly pigmented lipglosses like this because they bleed outside the lip line badly. And sadly, this did just that. It was hard to manage this because I had to check it constantly to make sure it looked fine, and I shouldn't have to do that. The gloss felt nice on the lips and provided some moisture since it has shea butter in it. I would like to try other shades that aren't as bright as Flaunt.

This is a great powder. My skin looks better both after and during every time I use it. I love the ingredients, especially the squalane. I've never broken out because of this. The powder is tinted, but it has hardly any coverage, so I like to set my under eye concealer with it, just for a little tiny bit more of a brightening effect, and it works very well. It has never creased on me. I don't bother using a brush with this because it doesn't pick up enough product, I just use the little sponge applicator that comes included. I don't think this is very good for oil control or mattifying, but it'll do the job to set your concealers in place while letting your skin glow through naturally. I tend to get flaky and sometimes crusty (hey man, it happens to the best of us) but this never emphasizes any dryness. In fact, it smooths it all out, and you can't even see the powder collecting on any roughness. I hit pan on these compacts pretty quickly, but they're only a couple bucks at the dollar store. I wish the mirror inside was a little bigger.
