Almay Eyeshadow Palettes & FOTD

First time ever trying Almay eyeshadows because I haven’t found a place that allows you to swatch them. So I was always reluctant but I just got two because I actually wanted to try them for the longest time.

Intense i-color

Powder Eyeshadow

Trio for Browns 021 (purples)

3.6g/0.13 Oz

Trio for Brown Eyes

I have to say one thing, I love the fact it is a clear top so I can see the colours without having to open the palette.  Each of these palettes also comes with a sponge applicator even though I don’t use them; it’ll come in handy when travelling.  The size of them is good as well as they’re not bulky so when travelling they don’t take up too much space.  The packaging is good quality and not the soft cheap plastic so it doesn’t break just from opening and closing them too much.

with Flash

The pigmentation is great and they’re soft and smooth so it glides on great when applied.  The colours are also good and great for creating a simple look with them on days you’re rushing and have little time to do your makeup.

Intense i-color

Light Interplay Technology

Powder Shadow

Trio for Hazels 033

4.8g/0.16 Oz

Trio for Hazel Eyes
I have no idea why this one has more products and the price is the same, and the highlight in this colour is huge compared to the purple one.  This palette however includes instructions on how the eyeshadows should be used.  Handy for beginners who are looking for how to apply eyeshadows on themselves.  Just like the previous one it is the same size packaging and comes with a sponge applicator as well.  The other different from this palette is that the packaging/case is completely clear but the quality of the plastic is just as good as the purple one.  This palette also contains one matte eyeshadow which is the black one and the purple one didn’t have a matte eyeshadow at all.
With Flash

The pigmentation is just as great and it easy to apply and easy to blend as well.  Even though it was made for hazel eyes I hope I can find a way to work it one my brown eyes.

Have anyone else tried Almay Eyeshadows?

Used my new Almay purple eye palette to create a look and thought I share it on my blog. It didn’t really turn out as well as I had wanted it to so I’ll have to attempt another time with this palette and hopefully then it’ll be better.

The camera washes out the colours, it was more intense than this :p

Need to reset camera settings, it's fading the colours too much!
