Beauty on a budget: L.A Colors single shadows

Okay so as I’ve said before, I’m always on the lookout for budget friendly products that wow me. In today’s post I’ll be talking about a product I stumbled across recently at Dollar General, L.A Colors matte single eyeshadows, and L.A Colors babyPOP! eyeshadows. Unfortunately I cannot find a link to purchase these products online, but as I stated above they are available at Dollar General. I found mine on a small endcap near the cosmetics. Probably my favorite part about these shadows is they are 2/$1.00. Yep, that’s 50ยข for an eyeshadow single. I couldn’t believe my eyes, so naturally I grabbed almost all of them. 

Now, keep in mind in my product reviews I will never judge an extremely inexpensive product the same way I would a high end product. I rate all products based on how they perform for the price. So anyway, that being said let’s get into it!


For 50ยข I personally think these matte shades make some awesome crease and transition shadows. They aren’t insanely pigmented, but they are pigmented enough to be great for more natural nude looks. I find myself using them quite often, and actually love the colors they have available. Swatches below:


The babyPOP shadows are also pretty awesome for being 50ยข. They’re nicely pigmented and make some really pretty metallic shadows, and apply nicely when packed onto the lid with a finger or flat brush. They also have surprisingly decent staying power as long as they are worn with a primer.

The only shade I didn’t really love was wine shimmer. Out of all the shades I own, I really like brownie and golden and reach for them the most often. Dollar General also carries two white shimmer shades and a purple shade in this shadow, I just didn’t purchase those. 

Overall if you’re looking for some cheap singles to build your collection, or start your collection for the price these are worth trying.
