The BornPrettyStore is an online shop that focuses on beauty products including makeup, nail polish and jewelry. They offer free worldwide shipping within 24 hours of placing the order and have amazing deals on their products. I opted for the 18 color eyeshadow makeup palette from the brand Car Mela. Most of the shades are earth-toned with some bright colors in the mix. All of the shades, except for the black shade, are shimmery. I am very impressed with the quality of the eyeshadows in this palette. They are very pigmented and feel very creamy and smooth. There are no major chunks of glitter in the eyeshadows that make it difficult to blend onto the eyelid. They blend very well together and although they may appear very similar in the palette, they are very distinct from each other. They remind me a bit of the Urban Decay eyeshadows, but at one-fifth of the price. You can find this eyeshadow palette here for $9.99. Although I do need to have another eyeshadow palette nearby with a couple of matte shades, you can create so many different and beautiful looks with this palette. I am very eager to try different palette and to add them in my collection.
These are two different looks that I decided to go for with this palette. The first is a very simple everyday look that is great for school or work. The second look is a bit more dramatic and can be used on nights out with friends or events.
For the first look I used the second shade from the top row all over my lid. Using the fourth shade from the top row, I applied it to the outer 1/3 of my lid and blended it in with the other shade. With the third shade from the top row, I made a "V" shape in the outer corner of my eyes and blended it with the other eyeshadows.
The second look was created the same way as the first, but with darker shades. On my entire lid I used the fourth shade from the last row. In the outer 1/3 of the lid I blended in the first shade of the last row. To make the outer "V" shape, I used the third shade from the last row. On my lower lash line I blended the first and fourth shade from the last row to bring the whole look together.
I highly recommend this palette because of the amazing quality of eyeshadows that you get for such a low price. I have also been provided with a 10% off coupon code for any purchase that you make on the BornPrettyStore website. Simply type in the code EZG10 to receive the discount.
