Review and FOTD: L.A. Colors Metallic Eyeshadow Palette Soiree | Productrater Sigma Holiday Sigmax Brush Set Giveaway!

In this post I going to review L.A. Colors Metallic Eyeshadow Palette in Soiree. The palette comes in sleek thin plastic case with transparent lid. The applicator that comes with the palette is okay as long as you don't wash it. I tried to wash it, and the sponges come off.

The palette eyeshadow is finishes obviously shimmery metallic. Top layer of the eyeshadow are much more shimmery, so for this review, I removed the top layer using cotton pad. So the swatches below made from the eyeshadow lower layer.

The colors in this palette are grey, light blue, pink, blue and purple.

Without flash. The colors in this palette are very vibrant, only one swipe needed to reach the swatches intensity.

With flash, here you can see, even after the eyeshadow top layer removed, it's still shimmery(metallic)

The price are obviously a big plus, it's a good value since the eyeshadow are very pigmented. However, I noticed that these eyeshadow doesn't blend well. IMO, it works better alone. As comparison, E.L.F. Brightening Eye Color, like Luxe, Ivy, Blue Moon and many others blends better.

I think it doesn't blend well because the formulation is somewhat chalky. This palette need good eyeshadow primer to work. Overall, this product is decent.

I used four out five color in the palette today.

Grey in the inner corner, pink in the middle and purple in the outer corner blended into crease. Blue lined under eye.

Products that I used today, Skin79 Hot Pink BB cream, E.L.F. Studio Cream Eyeliner in Black, E.L.F. Essential Clarifying Pressed Powder in Honey, Maybelline Great Lash Waterproof in Very Black, E.L.F. Essential Blusher in Flushed, L.A. Colors Metallic Eyeshadow Palette in Soiree. E.L.F. Essential Lipstick in Posh, Nivea Lip Care Rose Velvet, E.L.F. Mineral Eyeshadow Primer (not in picture).

Lately I couldn't be bothered to cover my under eye circle. It doesn't look so bad in the picture above. I guess the BB cream does slightly conceal imperfections.
Sorry for the annoying smug face, but this picture shows the blusher, eyeshadow and lipstick color better.
