Okay so while browsing around in Walmart, (which btw is my fav spot ever, LOL) I stumbled upon these FAB looking eye shadow thingy's<-------yes I said 'thingy's" LOL. I decided to try out a few. Me being the makeup junky that I am, I wanted to grab all 10 colors. I decided not to purchase them all, due to the fact of me not being sure they'd suit my fancy! Well guys,after trying them out for a good week or two, I was SOLD! BOMB.COM Ladies and gents! Some may say these are a dupe to the Mac Cosmetic paint pots, but I beg to differ. The formula is a bit more paste like. Out of all ten shades, tough as taupe was the only true matte shadow. The rest had a slight shimmer to them. I own each one, with the exception of "bad to the bronze" and "too cool". As I already own tons of bases in these tones. These are initially meant to be eye shadows. Meaning that they are meant to stand alone. The way the pigmentation pops and for the amount of time these colors last without creasing, they are indeed good enough to be worn alone. However I choose to use them as a base. The only con is that they dry extremely fast, so you have to work quick, which, that really isn't a downfall. Also, I was quite disappointed about the color pay off for the "Painted purple" tone. This color was soooooo sheer??! Bummerrrrrrrrr. Any who below, are a few photos and swatched! Be sure to check them out. I caught them on sale for BOGO. At a little over 5 bucks, these little gems are way worth it. Look out for a few tutorials using these bad babiesssssss!
To give you guys an idea of the color payoff, here's a photo of an exact dupe for my fav color in the bunch "Tenacious Teal"
