120 Eyeshadow Palette

About a week and a half ago I bought some makeup on Ebay. One of the items I bought was a 120 eyeshadow palette... I floated around youtube and looked at some reviews before I bought this thing... and after seeing the color payoff, I decided to get it (that and it was retail therapy for tornado sirens)...

The one I got is 'Manly' brand... from Meidu Cosmetics Factory... there's another one exactly like this that's Beauties Factory brand... they even have the same image on the palette compact, just different words.

I loooove eyeshadow, especially in bright crazy colors... this seemed perfect to have a little of everything... 120 eyeshadows in bright colors for 20 bucks... 

It's made up of two removable palettes, one stacked on top of the other.. to get it like the picture above, you'd take one out and place it in the top part of the compact.  When I received mine, I had two damaged eyeshadows... the gold orange in the bottom left corner, and the blue one four colors above it... but only the tops came off (they're slightly domed) and it wasn't damaged enough for me to make a fuss about.  I purchased insurance because some reviews on youtube had a lot of badly broken ones, and a lot of ebay sellers won't replace them without insurance...

These eyeshadows are very pigmented... there are some metallic ones, shimmer ones, and matte ones... the more matte they are, the harder the eyeshadow.  When I say this, I mean like when I rub on the metallic ones with my finger, a generous amount comes off vs. the matte ones...  

I haven't messed with every color, but I would say about 90% are true to color as far as payoff goes... some darker ones and some of the matte ones seem to require a little more product to get a solid pigment... but I haven't tried it with a primer yet, so maybe that opinion will change. I will still say that even the not so great ones have way better pigment than most drugstore brands I've tried...

I ordered this on a Thursday and received it 10 days later on a Saturday shipped internationally... I got this far earlier than I expected.  Each eyeshadow is about the size of a penny.  The Saturday that I got it, I had tested out a number of them all over my hands and arms... I looked like I got into a paint fight with a kindergarten class... and lost.

My only dislike of this product was that there wasn't a red eyeshadow... there's a close one but it's more of a shimmery pink tone. I was looking forward to having a red or two, but I still love this palette... for 20 bucks I would say it's an awesome deal to have... especially for those who only do up their makeup on special occasions but don't feel like shelling out 20 bucks PER eyeshdadow that they won't hardly use...  I haven't used any 'wet' though, so I don't know how well these things handle moisture... dunno if they'll crust over or what... but I've not had that happen with any eyeshadow other than a covergirl one I had once...

I might also recommend this to people with daughters who have slumber parties that include *makeovers* lol.. keep them outta mommy's pricey stuff, and if it gets ruined, no big deal (possily a big mess if it's destroyed on carpet though lol)

Seems there's speculation of there being lead in these eyeshadows since they're from china, but they're lead-free... the ingredients are listed, and what makes the shimmery/metallic ones shine is the Pearl Lustre Pigment, which I've done my research on and it's non-toxic... There's a better chance of having lead in your red lipstick (*cough* loreal, covergirl, dior *cough*)

This thing also puts a large amount of makeup in a small collected place... rather than having 120 different eyeshadow pots rolling around, this thing is neat and orderly...

All and all my hand is covered in eyeshadow again... I love this thing... I will put a rainbow on my eyessssss :)

$20!!! That is a steal. The colors looks so rich. I'm a neutral girl when it comes to eye shadows, but for $20 I wouldn't mind NOT playing it safe for a while.

Re: 120 Eyeshadow Palette

Ooooh, I want to play dress up. I do want to try something I read in a mag recently. It's "the new look this season". You line your eyes with a thick line of a bold color (like red) then you line over that with a thinner line of black so that the color peeks through just a bit. It looked great in the mag. I would have to go to one of your events to rock that look though. It doesn't work for my ordinary lifestyle.

Wooooooooooow   Must have! 

I'm not big on color because I would consider myself a "hardly use or on occassion" person with bright palettes.  And I too won't spend lots of my monies on something I don't use often.  I have a few four quads that I love though. But that is a bright eyeshadow bible there. I have to show this to my cousin she loves loves loves pretending she's rainbow brite every now and then!
