Sally Girl eyeshadows review and swatches

I recently picked up a few of the Sally girl eyeshadows from Sallys Beauty supply and I want to share them with you guys.

Each little .04oz shadow is sold individually and can be turned into a personalized palette by connecting the shadows together on the sides. These are a great way to play with color and not break the bank because they only cost 99cents a piece (94 cents if you have a Sally's Beauty Supply card)!!! There is an array of colors to choose from, so of course it took me forever to pick the ones I liked the most.The finishes of these are more of a satin or shimmer and I did notice a few matte ones but didn't purchase any as I wasn't digging the colors of them at that moment. I picked up 4 shades...

I am really happy with these shadows. They feel very silky when I swatched them, not chalky in the least bit and they seem to go on easy with my makeup brushes.I have used all 4 of them for eye looks in the past few days and they all have really great pigmentation and with a base, last all day and have not creased. I did notice once I put my brush into the color sky that there was a little bit of dust action but it still applied to my lids wonderfully. Champagne is a great all around highlight color and chocolate I am loving to warm up any dark smokey eye looks I have done lately. Blue Marine I feel is a unique color, it has little flecks of gold in it (something I haven't seen to much with blue shadows). All around I am really happy with these colors Ive picked out. I'm definitely going to be buying more:)

I purchased 2 more shadows...

The photos below are two Sally girl Baked Eyeshadows. These are more of a mineralized shadow. These are also 99 cents?( 94 cents with Sally's card). These shadows are in tiny packages but have .05oz of product in the pan. I think the ball form hides the amount of product since these are bigger than the regular sally girl shadows by a teeny bit.
These don't have names anywhere on them...odd. :/ So I'll call them dark purple and olive gold.:)

Dark Purple
Olive Gold




These shadows are a little harder to work with. You really need to rub on the product to get a good swatch. I have not used the dark purple shade yet so I cannot tell you how that one is when applied to the eyes but the olive gold one is very pretty on. It is a little bit of a pain since you have to rub the brush into it a bunch of times so there will be enough of it to go onto your eye. If used with Fix + or any mixing medium this olive gold shade turns into a vibrant metallic eye that I like quite a bit. I have been using this one alot. All in all the mineralized shadows are ok, If worn wet they last all day and give that metallic finish, if worn normal they arent anything special. I will probably buy 1 or 2 more because they are so cheap. I also noticed they had tiny little blushes and bronzers that I might pick up when I buy more eyeshadows. :)

HAVE YOU TRIED THE SALLY GIRL SHADOWS?

  3. I haven't seen these at Sally's before! I'm glad you reviewed them! The regular shadows look great, and I think that the base underneath really makes them pop for sure! I always have a hard time with baked eyeshadows from any line as well - it is just so hard to work with a product that has been BAKED into a hard rock! LOL ;) I also tend to use them wet like you said, but for some reason I don't ever reach for my baked collections because of the extra step required to use them (just what I have found with myself). These are so darn cute and itty-bitty though...kinda hard to resist...
    LOVE this review & love the price on all of these - great shadows for the price especially! :D

    1. They are usually located right on or by the checkout counter. You can easily walk past them and not notice.
      I don't understand why baked products are so hard to work with but they are always lovely if you take the time to put them on.
