The Best Dollar You'll Spend This Year

Alright guys, I know I'm way late to the party on these. Way late. I don't care, these are so awesome I have to talk about them. If you live near a Walgreens, drop everything and go now! Tucked away is a hidden treasure: Twinkle Twinkle 5 color eyeshadow palettes from Profusion for one dollar each. One dollar!

I know, I know, the price is impressive, but if they suck, it's still a dollar wasted. Guess what? They're awesome! There are four to choose from but I only picked up three, as the fourth one had colours I would never wear. The amount of product is really quite impressive. They all come with a double ended sponge applicator. Behind where that brush sits is a long skinny mirror. It's a little awkward but better than nothing! Anyway, let's talk about them!
None of these palettes have names, nor do the shades. They are numbered, though! The first, 01, is a lovely collection of smoky purples. Since the shades don't have names, I'll just talk about them from left to right. The first shade is a really pretty shimmery ivory. It's pearlescent and somewhat sheer, but does build up if you want it to. The second shade is a gorgeous steely lilac that has a pink duochrome finish to it. This shade alone is worth the dollar you'd pay for the whole palette! Third in is a deep shimmery plum. Fourth is a really beautiful shimmery indigo/blurple, and fifth is a wonderful shimmery black. All of these are super soft, really nicely pigmented, and blend really well!
Up next is 02, which is a collection of shimmery nudes. Again, we'll go left to right. First is a really pretty cream highlighter shade, which is quite next. Second is a beige champagne colour, which is really really sheer and doesn't build very well. Kind of disappointing but it could make a nice base. Third is a warm light brown, which is extremely powdery and crumbly. The shade and pigmentation are nice, though. Fourth is a medium brown, and fifth is a really pretty maroon/burgundy colour. This is also really powdery and not so well behaved, but the shade is so pretty it's worth the work! These shadows are all very soft and all nice and pigmented, aside from shade number two. You might have a million and one nude shades, but this palette is definitely worth your dollar!
Last up is 03, a collection of shimmery earthy tones. Shade one is a really pretty rose gold colour. Shade two is a deep olive green that almost looks brown! Shade three is a bright green with a beautiful golden micro glitter. Shade four is a hunter green, and shade five is a shimmery black! As usual, these are all very soft, nicely pigmented, and blend well!

So these are all really awesome! The colours and finishes are beautiful. Some of the shimmers are so shimmery that they're almost metallic! While these are great on their own, they do even better over primer! I have to say that 01 and 03 are my favourites. If you're looking for beauty on a budget for yourself or for a great stocking stuffer, you can't go wrong with these!
