BEAUTY ON A BUDGET: 12-Color Eyeshadow Palette Under P200

by - Friday, April 01, 2016

We all love makeup. But if you're like me who's just starting out her eyeshadow stints then an affordable neutral palette is our safest bet. A great neutral palette is definitely a must-have - may you be a pro makeup artist or a beginner building her own makeup kit - a neutral palette can be used for an everyday 'no make up look' up to that edgy smokey eye makeup for evening cocktails.

I am extremely bothered by my blending skills so mixing eyeshadow colors is kind of overwhelming for me, and so anything neutral was always on the top of my list. I was exploring Landmark when I glanced upon this affordable L.A Colors 12 Color Eyeshadow Palette (P199).

The packaging is nothing fancy I almost left but after swatching them on the back of my hand, I knew I was getting more bang of the bucks I'm paying for, so I gave in. I, myself couldn't believe I could get a decent eyeshadow palette for only 199 pesos.

The L.A Colors 12 Color Eyeshadow Palette is a combination of matte and shimmers. They are pigmented enough considering the price tag and I saw minimal powdery fall out when I'm using it. I personally love the shimmery gold-beige shade (beside the shimmery brown one on the right), it reminded me of Naked Basics' Foxy, but shimmery.

What I like About L.A Colors 12 Color Eyeshadow Palette?

  • Pigmented, especially the shimmery ones
  • No need to use primer to make the colors pop, you get exactly what you see in the palette
  • Great color selection - can be used day and night - the black and metallic gray is perfect for smokey eye look while the earthy ones can be used for simple everyday look
  • Very affordable -  it's a steal for only P199 for a dozen of colors

What I Don't Like About L.A Colors 12 Color Eyeshadow Palette?
  • Most of the matte ones feel a little bit chalky
  • The applicator kind of feel flimsy and can be rendered completely useless if you want to achieve a well blended finish
  • plain and cheap packaging, who am I to complain considering the price, right?
