Bargain Makeup: L. A. Colors @ The Dollar Tree


These palettes can be found at your local dollar store if you're lucky. Of course I'm a neutral color lover but they also had a purple 6-color palette and a bright colored 6-color palette which I did not pick up but the purple one was pretty. I think there was also a brighter pink palette. I bought the 12-color palettes a couple months or so ago and I don't see them there anymore. =(

PROS
Cheap ($1)
Lots of colors
Well-pigmented
Nice shimmer and satin finishes

CONS
Hard to find
Slightly powdery
12-color palettes have a strong hotel bar soap odor

SWATCHES & PICS

Nice neutrals

Pretty cream beige highlight, awesome orange and pink raspberry color. However, the yellow is not very pigmented. I had to build that color up to get it to pop. Maybe a black base would help.

Pretty blues with a stark white, awesome teal and the grays have a blue undertone

Browns with oranges and orange undertones
Browns and pinks with pink and plum undertones
6-color palettes in natural light (NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in Cottage Cheese used as a base under all swatches)
6-color palettes with flash
12-color palettes in natural light
12-color palettes with flash
OVERALL GRADE: 4 out of 5 stars (6-color palettes)
3.5 out of 5 stars (12-color palettes)
