LA Colors 5 Color Metallic Eyeshadow Palette in Soiree, Ocean Breeze Review, Swatches Pictures

I picked up a couple of LA Colors 5 Pan Metallic Eyeshadow Palettes in the colors Soiree(pinks & purples) and Ocean Breeze(teals). I found these at Rue21 for $2.99. Also, be sure to check your dollar trees and other dollar stores for LA Color Palettes because some people often find them there. They can also be found for $3 on Cherry Culture.Com in a wide array of shade selections.

First off, I have to that the main reason I chose the soiree palette was because it had tons of shimmery glitter on top that were almost as sort of duochrome glitter. I swatched them and was very happy with the shimmer, until I realized that the glitter was overspray and the color underneath had none of the beautiful glitter in it. I was extremely disappointed since that was my entire reason for picking this palette. The colors are decently pigmented for the price, but the colors were quite similar after the glitter was gone. However, if you are a big fan of magentas and pink/purples, you may really like having slightly different variations of the shades.

Ocean breeze contains a shimmery white, two teals, one purple and a silver. The colors are again, decently pigmented for the price and I like this palette much more than the soiree palette. If you are looking for some inexpensive teals, this may be a good option for you.

Overall, I think these are okay palettes and very inexpensive. I was just really disappointed about the glitter overspray in Soiree. Also, the packaging was all scratched up and it was like that on every single palette in the store, so I thought that was a bit weird since they were new, sealed palettes from a store.

Have you tried any LA Colors Eyeshadows? What do you think of them?
