My name is LaJune,
and i’m addicted to EYESHADOW
Okay, so it’s not so much an addiction but a STRONG appreciation for eye makeup. Problem is I’m cheap and my money isn’t as long as i’d like so i cant go to Sephora or Ulta and but all the Urban Decay or Too Faced palettes my heart desires. Lucky for me i’m not stuck on labels.
So, I was searching Youtube one day to see if anyone found any good cosmetic grade glitter real cheap and GIRRRRRRLLLLLLLLLLLLL, When I say I hit the JACKPOT!!!!!! I came across a lot of videos for a site called Super Glitters also known as Glitter my World or Bulk Glitters. All of the glitters range between$1 and $1.25 for individual sizes. The only problem I had, which I don’t consider a problem, is that opening them is kind of messy because they are OVERFILLED. For $1-$1.25 I definitely appreciate them being filled to the brim. I bought 10 glitters(marked G) but only pressed 4 so far. They mix super easy and Shipping was really fast. I don’t remember how much shipping cost but it was no more than $5. They only take so many orders a day so if you do want to order some make sure you go to the site as early as possible.
Being the youtube watcher that I am
(I watch youtube more than regular TV, don’t judge me :-D)
I said, Hey if I can find glitter that cheap I wonder what other makeup I can find? So I continued to watch videos and I hit the jackpot. I found 2 sites with individual shadows for $3-$6 that are actually really good quality:
Morphe (marked “m”):
I used to always hear about their brushes and palettes to where I didn’t even know they sold single shadows but yes, they have single shadows. At $2.29 each it’s a steal. I only got 6 of the shadows because I wan’t sure how i’d like them. The do have decent pigment but if you want your shadow to really pop just use water or some a fix+ type of product to wet your brush.
Coastal Scents (marked “cs”):
I LOOOOOOOOOVVVE me a good sale and when I got word they had single shadows for only .99¢ (normally $1.98 each) I ran for my life and bought 15 of them. I was so Pleasantly surprised on how good these shadows were.
I went to see XSCAPE on July 3rd and my eye makeup came through like a champ. They blended like butter . I don’t know if their just that good or have I finally mastered eyeshadow but either way I’m happy. Even at their regular price they’re impressive.
Colourpop (marked “cp”):
Not so Recently Colourpop added pressed powder shadows to their site. Normally they are only $5 but many times you can find them on the site for $4. Because i’ve bought so much eyeshadow lately I ony bought 3 of these. The ones I got has decent pigmentation. They’re not as impressive as the Super Shock Shadows but when you put them together it makes for the perfect pair of “how am I gonna get this off my face” eyeshadows.
Anastasia Beverly Hills (marked a):
Okay so these aren’t the most inexpensive at $12 each but I went to Ulta and they had a bowl of them 50% off. Of course I missed most of the good colors but I was able to find some good neutrals to add to my collection :-). Moral of the story? It’s always on sale somewhere.
I have been wanting to try some of the Karity Eyeshadows but I need to first find somewhere to put them (makeup hoarders anonymous is that you?). If anyone has tried them please leave a comment below. Were they worth the money? How was the shipping and Customer Service?
What are some other inexpensive eyeshadows you like?
Let me know in the comments below
