L.A. Girl Mega Pearl Shine anybody?

I've been meaning to do a review on these eye shadows, but never had the time to do it =/

I think a lot of you are more familiar with LA colors, but I think this is a sister branch or the same company with differently named products.

here's the bunch I bought like a month ago from cherry culture
I had a discount, so each shade was under 3 dollars.

(click to enlarge :)

kamikaze, crystal cocktail, purple hooter , Strawberry Daiquiri
mint julep, sangria, pina colata, lemon drop
mimosa, blue passion, hurricane, pink tutu
silver fizz, bellini tini, frozen rose, avalanche

so that was the family picture (with flash)

and here are individual swatches (w/ flash & w/o flash - natural lighting while raining outside), click to enlarge :)

(L -> R): Bellini Tini, Mimosa, lemon drop, Pina Colata

Silver Fizz & Avalanche

my verdict

overall quality ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆
packaging ★ ★ ☆☆☆
price ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

I think this is very similar to the miss rose palette I did a review on
it is soft and I guess more on the wet e/s type and it is very sparkly

when applied to skin it is flaky and at the same time cakey (if that makes sense..)
you have to smear it out several times to make it look smooth. When applied to eyelids, it's more on the cakier side.
But aside of that, it is hella cheap, and the colors are vibrant. Once you get used to using them, smudging out the colors won't be a big deal.
also, they are the same size as the MAC shadows, so if you like shrinking everything into compact stuff like me, you could depot these and put them in any palette (elf, coastal scents, mac.. you name it)

the shell of the packaging is very flimsy so be careful when dropping it

----------- (etc.) -------------

oh, and here's a picture of my missing baby =/
I think I took a picture of her and then put it back into the MAC bag and threw her away while I was moving...
If anyone sees her, please tell her to come home to mommy
