Hey readers! Here today with a "fail" product...the Profusion Beauty Wallet: 25 "glossy" shadows.
What a total disappointment! Granted, at $2.99 for 25 shadows, I really shouldn't be surprised nor have expected much (but, then again, there are some great brands out there like essence and Wet n' Wild that put a lot of quality into their low price, okay, I digress...).
At first glance these Profusion Beauty Wallets really reminded me of the Coastal Scents Metal Mania Palettes that I have seen online. The shadows looked so massively metallic that I couldn't wait to try it out! I even picked up two hoping to toss one of them into my upcoming blog giveaway (stay tuned for that everyone...trying to get to 100 followers first!).
Well, ya'll, the shadows just aren't great. I immediately went home and started testing out some of those shades, only to discover that the "high shine" metallic finish was only a top coating on the shadows and that underneath was very powdery shadow without any metallic sheen that generally lacked pigmentation. Bleck! They blended out to look like "nothing". So, I didn't even do swatches for you readers, there just wouldn't be much to show.
So, needless to say, I am returned these palettes. Luckily, I purchased at Walgreeens, and they takes back almost everything. So, I had no trouble returning the palettes. The shadows just didn't show up metallic and that was why I purchased them. I had wanted a very metallic finish. Instead, I got powdery "blah".
Oh well! Just thought I would let you readers know! I was drawn in by the pretty pink wallet packaging (very "gifty") and the shiny/metallic looking shadows...but was disappointed. I mean, there are certainly MUCH better low priced cosmetics out there like Wet n Wild and essence that are inexpensive yet good quality.
Thanks for reading!
