LA Colors Sweet 16 color eyeshadow palette | Is this the best affordable eyeshadow palette?

I have recently started digging into eyeshadow palettes! Why? Because I’ve started learning the ‘art’ of eye makeup now. Better late than never! And after being dissatisfied with Maybelline The Blushed Nudes palette, I decided to go for LA Colors Sweet 16 color eyeshadow palette, a more affordable option (to try out).

Price: The palette is for Rs. 675. You can always get it at a much lesser value during sales which are very frequent at Nykaa!

Variants: There are 4 variants available. Seductive, Brave, Playful & Charming. I got Seductive.

Shadows: I absolutely adore the shades! They range from nice peachy browns to deep browns, deep greys, olive & 4 shimmers. This palette is very versatile as you can create office looks, party or smokey ones straight from this palette!

Pigmentation and staying power: To my surprise, the shades are super pigmented. They are very creamy to touch and blend in very beautifully. The deeper shades aren’t patchy and build up seamlessly when layered. These don’t need any primer beneath and also don’t crease in the long run. The shimmers layer up so well that I never used Duraline to enhance their pigments! They stay all day long without fading or smudging.

Tip: Use your fingers to apply shimmers.

My verdict on LA Colors Sweet 16 color eyeshadow palette:

Needless to say, I am in love with this palette! This is amazing not just for beginners but for everyone, firstly because it is so affordable and secondly, the quality you get is amazing! I am so addicted, I usually apply the peachy shades over my entire eyelids for daily office wear. There’s also a banana powder which can be used to highlight under the eyebrows.

The only con according to me is that it doesn’t come with a brush or mirror but I really can’t complain about them at this price!
