L.A. Colors Wine & Roses metallic eyeshadow palette

Oh boy! When you procrastinate on swatching and reviewing and finally decide to do it, it never ends! Lesson learned here.

L.A. Colors Wine & Roses eyeshadow palette





This palette includes 5 eyeshadows raging from a shimmery white with pink duo-chrome and gold shimmer to burgundy and purple. They have a metallic finish. The white shade comes off a bit grainy due to the gold shimmer, but its manageable and didn't had trouble to apply it. The rest are very soft and easy to blend .
The swatches where made dry, without primer. As you can see, they have a very good pigmentation; I found it super impressive to be honest.
On lasting power I experienced some slight fading with the 1st and 4th shade when used only over primer. When used over a color base fading issue was solved.  Haven't had creasing issues.
The compact is very simple and plain.  I like the fact that it has a clear cap so you can easily see the colors. Size wise its medium length and slim. While doing my makeup I drop everything! So far none of the eyeshadows have cracked, which leads me to believe that a "cheap looking packaging" -like some people have complained about- not necessarily mean it is.



L.A. Colors palettes can be found in the US in most Dollar Tree, Dollar General and similar stores. I got mine for $1 each.  In Puerto Rico I've seen them in Ahorro Express, Pitusa and small pharmacies, but they are hard to find which is a shame because I want them all!
