Review: Sally Girl Mini Baked Eye Shadows

I visited the Sally Beauty supply store recently to look for some cuticle oil and found some of these Sally Girl baked eyeshadows while standing in line at the checkout.

What is it?
"Sally Girl Mini Baked Eye Shadow lets you shine like a star with a collection of baked eye shadow colors.
  • Can be used wet or dry
  • Uniquely suited to play up any eye color
  • Can be used as eyeliners as well
Sally Girl Mini Baked Eye Shadow offers you so many combinations of color choices, the possibilities are endless and the results are fabulous." - Sally Beauty website

Retail price: $0.99 each

My Thoughts:
For 99 cents, these mini baked eyeshadows are a STEAL! There are 12 different colors available, I purchased 6 of them to try them out. The names/colors are not found on the eyeshadow; I went on the Sally Beauty website to match the SKU number with the corresponding colors for the purpose of this review. Each eyeshadow was individually wrapped. The circle dome-like cover makes it hard to stack the eyeshadow on top of each other. My 6 eyeshadows are sitting on my vanity table; it does take up some space.The packaging is decent for it to only costs 99 cents each. If you drop it, that's another story. I accidentally dropped one, and the eyeshadow cracked completely on the inside. You can always salvage it by turning it into eyeshadow powder by crushing it up, and transferring it to a container with a sifter.

From L to R: Light Pink, Dark Green, Shadow Rose, Gunmetal Gray, Gold, Dark Aqua

These are easy to apply, and come out looking smooth. Each of these eyeshadows have a slight shimmer to them, as do most baked eyeshadows. When applied dry, the colors are very soft and subtle with a hint of shimmer. The colors are also very buildable for a darker shade. When applied wet, the color is intensified and has a metallic shimmer look.

From L to R: Light Pink, Dark Green, Shadow Rose, Gunmetal Gray, Gold, Dark Aqua

Would I recommend it?
Yes! These are very affordable and versatile.
