Affordable Eye Shadow Palettes: Maybelline, Max Factor, L’Oreal and Revolution

I am sorry for the lack of updates but I have been very busy with work and one project I am currently involved in. But since I have decided to sort out my makeup, I’ve wanted to post about some of the affordable eye shadow palettes that I am passing onto my friends (three of them, one I am keeping for myself).

I am also giving away like 30 lipsticks which makes me kind of proud. I should really  give away a lot more, but I could never bring myself to parting with my precious. Think Gollum from The Lord Of The Rings, ahem.

But here are the palettes.

And they are Max Factor, Maybelline, L’Oreal and Makeup Revolution.

I do love navy blue liner  so I’ve decided to experiment with these eye shadows, too.I’ve tried several makeup looks  with this shade already and… I was very impressed actually. Both with the shade and the quality. This is such a pretty colour, you can pair it with so many products and styles.

As for the quality, it is

L’Oreal Chrome Intense Eye Shadows in Cacao Mania. Review and Swatches

I’ve been wanting L’Oreal Infallible Color eye shadows ever since I first heard of them but after this post at Modesty Brown I had to go and buy them. For some reason they were not available at that time so I had to get something else.

What?! I was determined to waste spend some money. This is why I’ve got this yellow lip gloss, Chrome Intense Eye Shadows in Cacao Mania and the most gorgeous blacked red nail polish that I will show you later.

I don’t even remember when I got anything from L’Oreal for the last time so I thought I would try some products.

I have heard some good things about these eye shadows before and since I was really impressed with the swatches I did in store, I’ve chosen shade #184 in Cacao Mania.

I have to say that
