Eyeshadow: Save or Splurge? Why?
Mimi: Truth be told, I’ve never found affordable eyeshadows that worked. When I started wearing makeup (like 13 years ago) I bought the Urban Decay Naked palette and some MAC singles and I’ve never regretted it.
If you noticed, in my posts, I pretty much never use affordable eyeshadows, if I do I generally don’t like the look because, and that’s the main problem I have with them, all the shadows blend together and tend to look like a muddy mess.
Here you can see two different looks, the expensive one, you can see different tones in each section and they blend together (but you can still see I used a colour in the crease, one colour on the centre, one on the inner corner and one on the outer corner). In the affordable one, I did the same thing but you can see two colours max because after blending, the colours merged together. It’s so frustrating!
Julia: Expensive, because the cheap ones I’ve tried have almost always been dry.
For example, the NYX ones, which, by the way, aren’t even that cheap do that. As Mimi said, Essence ones are not dry but when I blend them I no longer different colours, they all become the same.
When I buy expensive ones, it can happen that some are bad, but with inexpensive ones it always happens.
