L.A. Colors 12 Color Eyeshadow Palette ReviewI’ve been wanting to try these little L.A. Colors 12 Color Eyeshadow Palette’s out for awhile. They’re only $1 but I’m always hesitant to buy products from this brand. Anything I’ve ever bought from them has been a disappointment. Though, with drugstore brands upping their quality control, I thought I’d give L.A. Colors another try.

This is the L.A. Colors 12 Color Eyeshadow Palette in 74195 – Brown Buzz. I’m not sure why it’s named that since it’s mostly green shades. The net weight is 0.28 oz or 8 grams of product.

The packaging is fairly nice. Of course, it’s cheap plastic but not nearly as cheap as the Sweet & Shimmer quads I reviewed a few days ago.

L.A. Colors 12 Color Eyeshadow Palette ReviewAll of the eyeshadows are shimmers except the black/grey at the far right. I’ve swatched these out so you can see the quality.

L.A. Colors 12 Color Eyeshadow Palette ReviewI had an issue with all of the shadows. Each one is either powdery, chalky, or both. They are all fairly sheer, of course some more sheer than others. Fall out was another issue but the final straw was staying power. None of the shades adhere to the skin. A gust of wind would blow the product right off my arm. Once again, a very poor product from L.A. Colors.

My questions for them is: Why doesn’t your products ever improve? If Wet n’ Wild can do it, why can’t you?
