I recently was in the Dollar Tree with my daughters and noticed a couple of eye shadows that caught my eye. They both looked nice and pigmented and I thought for the price they were worth a shot. I fully expected them to be sheer and not blend well but bought them anyway.
L.A. Colors Purple and Teal Mineral Eyeshadow
Swatched you can see just how important a base is. The top of the swatches are over NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk and the bottom of the swatch is bare skin. The purple was almost sheer on bare skin but the teal had a decent opacity over bare skin.

I only did one eye and I did it pretty quickly because I did not expect much from this eyeshadow. The purple was not all that great but the teal like seriously blew my mind! This look was done using only the 2 L.A. Colors eyeshadow. My shape is a bit nuts but I wanted to showcase how gorgeous and opaque this teal is!
I was so excited about this teal that I wanted to see if it passed the "Husband" test ( my husband has an extremely good eye at identifying good quality eye shadows and pigments when they are applied). For this look I did apply some Inglot #388 ( bluish/purple) to the crease.
Sadly, this did not pass the "Husband " test. When I asked him what company he thought it was he said he did not know but it did not look that quality or smooth. Poo on him. I think for $1 it is a HUGE beauty steal! The purple is passable but the Teal is great.
Do you own any L.A. Colors products?
If so what do you think of them?
Any other pressed colors I must try??
Thanks for reading,
