The truth is, I don’t have any high end make up products in my stash yet and that’s mainly because I’m still studying and I don’t want to ask money from my parents just to buy an expensive make up. Buying high end make ups is not really my priority because I like discovering affordable products that actually works. Of course, I’ve always wanted to try them out and experience them because I’ve heard a lot of good things about high end make ups but since I still cannot afford them, I gotta work with what I have. *wink* For days, I’ve been trying to come up ideas on what to blog and then I randomly came up with the idea of hunting for cheap make up products that works and share my thoughts about it on my blog! I always disliked the fact that I can hardly find reviews about majority of cheap drugstore products online and reading/watching reviews online before buying is a MUST for me! Of course, I will be a hundred and one percent honest with the products that I am going to share. Don’t worry, I will never recommend a shitty product! But also keep in mind that we have different tastes and opinion so the product that worked for me may not work for you.
So to start off my Cheap Makeup Finds series, I am going to talk about a $1 eyeshadow quad! It’s from the brand KleanColor. I’ve noticed that this brand is not that known in the beauty world and I got so curious about them because they have hella cheap products!
So when my aunt hoarded some drugstore products from the USA, I was literally more excited than her! I didn’t really care what brand, I just wanted make ups! *squeals* She ordered about 300 pieces of make up because she wanted to try them out and also sell them. Of course, we will not be able to cop them at $1 here because it’s not locally available.
The Kleancolor Quad Matte eyeshadow palettes feature versatile shades that can be worn alone or together in an array of different combinations. Four vivid, matte shades that will be all you need to elevate your eye game.
COLORS AND FINISH
This particular quad is named Lark. It comes with four matte eyeshadows; a light skin toned color, brownish orange, orange and a deep brown. I honestly love the colors because I have everything I need in one look and I’m really digging the color peach lately so that’s a plus!
a little disclaimer: I am not good at describing colors. Please forgive me!
The packaging is really basic and simple. The top lid is transparent so you can easily spot the colors right away. It comes with a double-ended sponge applicators and nope, it doesn’t have a mirror. It’s travel friendly because it’s really small, it can surely fit your daily makeup bag. The ingredients, shade name and a bunch of other information are listed at the back.
As you can see on the photo above, you can use them up to 24 months after opening them. That’s a long time for $1!
WHERE CAN YOU GET THEM AND THE PRICE
You can get them through their website, www.kleancolor.com or if you want to cop them locally, I’ve seen a lot of shops that sells Kleancolor products on Shopee. We got them for $1 from their website but if you’re buying them here, expect the price to be a little higher. It ranges from P120-P150.
TEXTURE & PIGMENTATION
It’s in between creamy and powdery but it’s leaning more on the creamy side. I didn’t get any fall outs or the powder texture when I swatched them on my arms (using my fingers). However, it got powdery when I used a brush. Make sure to tap the brush a little bit before applying it on your eyelids to prevent a lot of fall outs. What I love about this quad is it applies smoothly on my eyes despite the fall outs.
I am impressed with the pigmentation because I got a decent amount of color in one swipe (using my fingers) but it requires more effort using the brush so keep that in mind. But come on, for a PHP100/$1, it’s actually a pretty good deal! Also, I find that the eyeshadow got more pigmented when I used a primer.
As I’ve said above, it comes with a double-ended sponge applicator. I honestly never really used it since I have other brushes on my stash. So I can’t say much about it.
For a dollar, this eyeshadow quad is really good. I like the colors and I really didn’t expect that it would be pigmented considering its price. I’ve learned my lesson, don’t judge the product by its price. LOL! It’s smooth, pigmented enough, it has all the colors I need in one look and it’s travel friendly!
