ALMAY intense i-color trios for HAZEL eyes, in # 403 and # 33

Hi everyone! I was at Shoppers  Drugmart and happened to see that the Almay eyeshadows were almost half price. I paid $6.99 each! they are usually $12.49! I picked out these two palettes because they both can work pretty well with my eyecolour ( which changes from brown naturally to green via contact lenses). In my opinion these colours can be flattering to other eye colours, and the best part is they are affordable. The pigmentation is good, at best great, but I cannot say " excellent" or "superb". While they are eyecatching and sparkley, they fail to swatch as pigmented as they look. Used with a base, the colour pay off is ALOT better. I think these are great for people who are new to makeup as the colours can be built upon AND they have instructions on the back of the palette on how to place each eyeshadow to help create the look. Here are some picures of the products, and what they look like on the eyes. Thanks so much for stopping by ! xoxoxox Maraya ~

This one is # 033 , look at how the green shade(top) POPS! The centre shade is a deep dark charcoal gray and the lightest colour is actually a white gold sheen.

This palette ( #403) consists of a pale silver ( top) heather tinted silver (centre) and a gunmetal silver ( bottom)

These pictures are using # 033
