Almay

Shadow Squad Eyeshadow Holographic + Limited Edition Palette!

$6.99 ea.*

*retail pricing @ Ulta or Walgreens + snag the Limited Edition palette for only .01!

I ended up getting a really good deal when it was all said and done, as Walgreens is currently offering up each Limited Edition Holographics Shadow Squad eye shadow quads @ $6.50 ea. If you purchased 2 at a time, Walgreens offers these Almay shadow quads at buy-one-get-one @ 50% off; plus, you can pick up the Limited Edition Almay palette that will hold up to 3 shadow quads for only an additional cent! My grand total was just under $20 for 3 of the shadow quads and the limited edition palette.

As you can see from the picture above, the palette is actually fairly unique with a pretty colorful ink blot-like design and it features an easy-to-use magnetic closure that does a decent job of staying shut and keeping your fav 3 Almay shadow quads always nearby! The palette also allows for portability making it great for trips and on-the-go gals :) I absolutely love the shades featured in each of my quad shadow picks, as you can also see from the labeled pics seen above: Pegasus [greens], Surreal [punchy purples], & Fairy Tale [sparkly super light pastels]. Each quad shadow features 4 super pretty shades [matte, metallic, satin, & glitter] that can be worn as a single, unique shadow or each shade can be worn alone, in combination, or layered to create a variety of truly beautiful eye looks!

I was most surprised by the Surreal shadow limited edition shadow quad from the holographic Almay collection and it truly is a stand-out shade that looks fabulous all on its own or great layered with other shades. For a drugstore brand, I was most impressed with the quality of the shadows as they do not crease and also put out fairly good color. They could be a bit less dry, but they blend well and offer up a few really unique shades that I haven't really come across for eye shadows- especially at this price.

One of the biggest pulls for me besides the price on this one, was the fact that I could customize my palette and snag one for just a cent more with my purchase, making it an even more attractive offer that was end- something I couldn't resist ;) If the shades I picked don't fit your style, there are 2 additional shadow quads in this particular Almay holographic limited edition collection: Pixie Kiss [pinks] & Illusionist [coral/oranges]. There are also 12 other shades that are featured in Almay's original shadow quad collection that range from neutrals to whites!
