I’m finally getting around to posting this for those of you who are interested in makeup; more specifically, eyeshadow palettes! 🙂
As always, yes, I did do a video + a quickie tut, so your choice to either watch or read:
I’m having loads of fun doing these first impressions videos but I also need other ideas of what to film, so shoot me some suggestions. I don’t really want to do reviews on YT just because I will be doing those here on the blog. So rather than doing twice the work, I want to supplement my blog posts with videos, if you will.
Anyway, let me move on!
Laura Lee Los Angeles Party Animal Eyeshadow Palette
If you don’t know, I received this palette in my August Boxycharm. It retails for $19 USD. It’s small, compact and surprisingly it has a decent sized mirror. It has six bright, bold shades that compliment each other so you can create several looks.
I’ve only played with it once (see video above) and I have to say it’s a little bit of a letdown so far. I don’t know if my dry eyelids, eye primer, or powder I used to set the primer had any effect on how the eyeshadows performed, though it shouldn’t, but I’m trying to stay impartial. For all I know, it’s the batch.
But again, not impressed. I think the shades could have been a bit more pigmented being as bold as they are. I spent so much time trying to build up their pigment and I also had a bit of trouble blending Damage Control, Karaoke, and Hungover.
For this particular look, Karaoke was hard to build up because as I was blending out the edges, the shade itself seemed to fade the more I blended. Therefore I had to dip into /the pan again to build it up, repeatedly. Hungover was very hard to blend onto the blue shades for some reason and it was looking a bit muddy.
Overall, the formula feels a bit inconsistent throughout, the shades have some kickback and fallout, and as I’ve mentioned, they lack pigment. Nonetheless, I want to keep playing with it and try different methods to rule out products I’m using or confirm it’s the palette.
What looks would you like me to try with this palette?
Feel free to give me color suggestions! xx
