I bought this cause why not. It’s not too expensive. With coupons and stuff, this cost me about $10. I think so. There is no brand. It’s just a plain plastic packaging with 28 shades. It ranges from shimmer to matte. This is a waste of money. Some shades are better than others. Some pigmentation is a bit patchy. Some pigmentation is alright. Some is quite good.
The first 3 rows are quite weak. Sure the colour get washed out by the camera, but it’s just so bleh. The shades all look similar. Sort of. The shadows themself are quite ok. It’s smooth to the touch, but it’s not fine. It doesn’t feel as nice. Row 1 shadow 4 is like very powdery.
The middle rows, the 4th and 5th are better. The colours are quite good. I mean they’re nicer than the first 3 rows. And it is quite nice to have a purple I guess. Even though it looks much lighter in the pan. Row 4, the second colour is my skin tone shade. Beside it, is the same except it’s glittery.
The last 2 rows are the most pigmented ones. I especially love the last row first shade. It’s a deep brown with a hint of purple. It actually look more purple here. But this one the pigmentation is superb. Below it, it’s also very pretty. I should depot all these shadows and choose the ones I like.
I think now there are a whole better shadows out there. So this is not a good buy. There are a lot of these 28 shadows pan that are better in quality. Some are branded and some is just an OEM. I feel most of them come from the same factory anyway. But ya, it’s still fun to play with makeup. I just wish I have little kids to play with these shadows. Cause I think this will be a great palette for them to play.
