LA Colors - Creamy Glitter Eyeshadow Palette in Surfer Girl

It was long, long time ago when I purchased this product. I think I got it from Nonpareil Boutique (but am not sure). My memory is long gone...


This is what Nonpareil Boutique says about LA Colors Creamy Glitter Eyeshadow Palette:
''Step out of your shell with LA Colors Creamy Glitter Eyeshadow Palette! Applies so smooth and stays all night long, LA Colors Creamy Glitter Eyeshadow Palette is perfect for nighttime look! Each palette comes with 6 creamy glitter eye shadows and a dual-sided applicator.''
It sounds good, right? And the colors... Here are the color drops:


I can't say that I fully agree with the description of this product:

1) Applies so smooth... NOT! I tried many different eye shadows - creamy, metallic, pressed, loose... but nothing was so hard to apply as these. There's an applicator in the package with sponge on one end and wonky brush on another. It's totally useless. The best way to apply these shadows is with fingers. But then there is another problem. The glitter tends to stick to the finger instead to an eyelid.

2) Stays all night long... NOT! Come on. We all know that creamy eyeshadows are the losers in this category. This isn't gonna last for too long, definitely not for a whole night.

I tried to do my best at the swatching and these colors actually look nice, don't they? But the application, it's horrible. You get glitter everywhere but where you want it. Fingertips aren't the most precise ''tool''.


I tried to do a look with these, but I failed miserably. I'll try again and hopefully the outcome will be good enough for me to share it.

If you're interested in this product, you can get it HERE. It's really cheap (1.50 USD), so there isn't a lot to loose.

Let me know if you've already tried this product. Did/do you like it? Are you interested in buying it?

Thanks for looking!

  2. great review hun! i am scared of creamy shadows and your experience with these makes me even more cautious, but maybe i'll just have to start out with a brand that is a bit more high end. too bad, cuz these colors are nice!

  3. It's rare that I buy a cream eyeshadow, since I know with my oily lids it will last 15 minutes before it all slides into the crease and then off my eyelid. Revlon Beyond Natural cream to powder palette is the last one that tricked me into buying it. I thought well if it dries into a powder then maybe it will actually stay put. No, there is no powder, it stays a cream and heads straight for the crease before sliding off my lids, just like every other cream shadow!

  4. I've not tried any yet, but creme shadows might last longer with some Urban Decay Shadow Primer. That stuff is serious! It makes even the cheapest shadow stay on until you take it off.

  6. I love to use these products as eyeshadow BASE. Do not use a lot though because it WILL crease. Use a small amount on a small, stiff brush and spread it out well...enough to provide a real thin surface for a powder eyeshadow to stick to. Happy experimenting! :D

  7. I've never tried LA Colors makeup products, but their nail polishes are surprisingly well made. I have 6 or 7 of them and I love them all. Nice pigmentation, easy application and opacity and the colors (for the most part) are original. :) You should check them out. :)
