LA Colors Metallic Eye Shadow Devious, Desert Dune & Wildflower Review

LA Colors Cosmetics is one of the imported yet inexpensive makeup brands I have encountered from the U.S. The product was imported by Sprint Asia Beauty here in the Philippines. I love this brand because they offer a lot of shades of eye and lip makeup that you can hoard as many palette and shade as you want.

What I think of it?

  • I love all three color palettes, color combinations are adventurous and playful.
  • Pigmentation is really nice. Β 
  • Works on wet or dry application.
  • Because the colors are metallic it is a bit shimmery but the shimmer is tolerable
  • There’s a tendency for the color to crease or transfer but if you use the right eye shadow primer the color will stay put and will last longer.

Do I recommend this?

I highly recommend the LA Colors Metallic Eye Shadow palettes. At Php169.00 per palette you can already play with a lot of color option for your adventurous makeup explorations.

If you are new to the world of makeup, I suggest you explore on the cheaper brands first before buying the expensive ones. It will be a lot easier to experiment with inexpensive brands and you can be generous with the color application. You can practice a lot of look or techniques with the cheaper makeup brands first. You can invest on the expensive makeup brands later when you become a master and decide to enroll in a makeup class to get that certificate that will earn you the makeup artist title.

How about you? Β Have you tried LA Colors before? Β What is your favorite makeup item from them?

I will be creating an FOTD with one of the palette soon! I think I’d like to use Wildflower! Stay tuned!

Stay gorgeous everyone!

    I had been wanting to get a pttleae for some time, I do makeup for people every once in a while and I wanted something that was small and compact but still offered a good variety of colors. I just got the 120 color 2nd edition a few days ago had have been toying around with it. First of all it was shipped very well and nothing at all was broken inside, I was shocked. It looks good and the design is functional. There are some good colors and the shimmers work well but first and for most you HAVE to use a eyeshadow primer with it! If you don’t the colors look cheap and lifeless. So far I haven’t gotten any of the mattes to blend at all. But the metallic and shimmer colors have been working very well. So if you can live without the mattes I would say just get BH cosmetics 88 shimmer pttleae because the mattes definitely a fail.

    I have the dessert dune palette! πŸ˜€ Love it to bits though I haven’t used it in quite a while. Anyway, these palettes are really impressive especially for their price! ^^ And I definitely agree that with cheaper eyeshadows, we can be really generous with application.. πŸ™‚

    I bought one eye shadow before. I really like LA Colors because they’re inexpensive yet effective. Not like the other brands na “humuhulas” agad because they’re cheap. πŸ™‚
