Woohoo! It has been a really long time since I hauled anything but hair products... so it was really awesome that I had a chance to pick up some makeup. :)

The shadows are just about the size of MAC shadows... maybe a tad bit bigger and cost just $12.00 each. The 5 eyeshadow palette was $8.50 and comes with little sticky magnets so you can easily transfer your single shadows into the palette.
You can see the pictures for swatches and I also have a video below. :)
The eye shadows are extremely pigmented... as you will see pictured below.
The colors are vibrant and are quite soft to the touch.
I haven't tried any looks with these yet, but I can only imagine how pigmented they are
and how easy they are to blend.
I tried to get a range of colors that I could use... and a mix of textures and finishes
so that I can get a feel of these shadows and do a good review on them.
Once I try them out a little more... I will be sure to do a formal review.
The picture below is backwards... sorry about that -
I totally wasn't paying attention when I swatched them on my fingers.
