Swatches: L.A. Colors 3 Color Eyeshadows

Hello, my Pretties!

I finally got around to taking some photos of the swatches to the L.A. Colors 3 Color Eyeshadow trios that I picked up in my Dollar Tree and Target Haul which you can see HERE.

I picked up these four trios at my local Dollar Tree. I had been dying to try these. I only got one of each that they had but there are so many more that I need to look for. I need the whole collection!

So now here come the swatches!

I did my swatches a little differently this time around. I did the swatches on my forearm as usual but this time I divided the swatches into three parts. Top third, I placed the eyeshadow over ELF Eyelid Primer. Middle third, I placed the eyeshadow over my bare skin...no primer, no base. Lower third, I placed the eyeshadow over NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk.

I think this is a good way to see the way the eyeshadows will look depending on what kind of base you use if you use any at all.

I must admit that I took the idea of using a primer and a base in my swatches, instead of just swatching on bare skin, from my fellow beauty Amber of Lipgloss and Flipflops. I thought, this is such a brilliant idea! Check out her blog, you'll love it.

This is the specific blog post where I stole this idea from:

FIRST IMPRESSIONS:
I love the Southern Belle and Shooting Star trios the most because they are bright colors and I love me some bright shades of shadow! But I do feel that these two trios are so much alike. For me, the purple is very similar in both trios and the greenish shade is almost identical. The only colors I feel are different are the pink in Shooting Star and the blue in Southern Belle.

As for the Grassy Knoll trio, it's eh. The colors are nicely pigmented but I'm not too keen on green. I bought it because I want the whole collection...I'm anal like that. But whatever, I think the colors are nice and I might like them once I wear them...but I don't think I'd wear all three green shades at once. Too much green!

And the Moon Rock trio rocks! I love it. I think it can make a really nice and dramatic eye. Period.

Well, that's all I have for now. I cannot wait to try these out on my face! I will try and use one of them tomorrow so that I can show you what it looks like on. I'm so excited!

Luv & Luk,
