Friday Ebay bargains- 88 color eye shadow palette review

ebay-88-warm-color-eye-shadow-review
Remember how a few weeks ago I wrote a blog post about some Ebay bargains that I actually purchased? Well, in that post I promised to make a separate review post on the 88 warm color eye shadow palette I ordered, since it was my first time ordering makeup from Ebay. And we all know how tricky cheap makeup, especially from China, can be!
The palette arrived at my post office in approximately three and a half weeks, which I think is the regular time for parcels to arrive from Ebay. The packaging arrived in a complete state- nothing was missing, nothing was broken and the eye shadows were in one place. Therefore, the logistics and arrival of this product have been successful, which actually is an important factor as sometimes items from Ebay arrive broken or with missing parts!

Atceries kā pirms pāris nedēļām es savā Ebay bargains: Nopirkts rakstā apsolīju uztaisīt acu ēnu paletes atsauksmju rakstu? Nu lūk šodien es esmu beidzot nobriedusi šim rakstam un uzrakstīšu savas domas par šo 88 silto toņu acu ēnu paleti. Šī bija pirmā reize, kad pasūtīju kosmētiku no Ebay un tā kā vēl joprojām daudzi baidās ( saprotamu iemeslu dēļ) pasūtīt kosmētiku no Ebay es nolēmu izveidot šo rakstu!
Acu ēnu palete ieradās manā pastā apmēram trīsarpus nedēļu laikā, kas, manuprāt, ir tradicionālais gaidīšanas laiks lietām no Ebay. Palete atnāca vienā gabalā, bez jebkādiem bojājumiem vai arī iztrūkstošām daļām, kā arī visas acu ēnas bija pilnībā kārtībā un nebija transportējot saplīsušas! Kāpēc es uzsveru tieši šo daļu? Tāpēc, ka ik pa laikam lietas, kuras atnāk no Ebay ir ieplīsušas- galu galā tāls ceļš tām mērojams!

If we are speaking of the palette's quality, I would say that it is medium. I'd say that it definitely exceeded my expectations as I was kind of preparing even for the worst. So far I have only used this palette three times ( you'll see one example makeup look at the end of this post), therefore, there are things about this palette that I am learning along the way. 
This is what I have learnt about the palette thus far:

* The durability is quite good- I wore the eye shadows for almost whole day and at the end of the day it seemed like it had creased just a little bit ( though, I did apply primer before the application of eye shadows!)
* Eye shadows that are in light colors are almost invisible and you have to reapply them multiple times till you see a good end result
* Eye shadows that are in darker color have really good pigmentation, especially the ones that have shimmer in them
* The easiest way to apply these shadows would be with fingers, because you can kind of rub them, though, they come off pretty good with brushes as well
* The color selection is very pretty- my favorite is the cranberry/copper tone eye shadow ( see in the  finger swatch picture)
* The consistency of the eye shadows varies on the color- the lighter ones are more firm, however the darker ones are a bit more powdery

Ja mēs runājām par paletes kvalitāti, tad es teiktu, ka tā ir viduvēja. Tā pavisam noteikti pārsniedza manas prognozes, jo, nezinu, pat kāpēc gaidīju to pašu ļaunāko! :D Esmu šo paleti lietojusi trīs reizes, kopš tā atnāca ( vienu "makeup look" redzēsi zemāk rakstā), līdz ar to ir šādas tādas lietas, kuras esmu uzzinājusi tās lietošanas laikā:

* Acu ēnu noturīgums ir salīdzinoši ilgs- es ar uzkrāsotām acīm nostaigāju gandrīz visu dienu ( apmēram 9 stundas) un vakarā ēnas bija salīdzinoši nedaudz iegrimušas plakstiņos ( protams, jāpiemin tas, ka pirms tam biju lietojusi acu ēnu bāzi)
* Acu ēnas gaišākajos toņos ir vieglākas un grūtāk klājās- vairākas reizes nācās paberzēt acu ēnu, lai iegūtu vajadzīgo krāsas spilgtumu
* Savukārt tumšākās krāsas klājās diezgan viegli un bija pat ļoti pigmentētas, it īpaši tās, kurās bija "šimeris"
* visvieglākais veids kā uzklāt šīs acu ēnas man bija vai nu ar pirkstiem vai ar aplikatoriem, lai gan diezgan labi tas izdevās arī ar otiņām
* Manuprāt, krāsu izvēle ir patiešām lieliska- mana mīļākā krāsa pavisam noteikti bija dzēveņu/vara tonis 
* Acu ēnu konsistence un sastāvs mainās attiecīgi no tā krāsas- gaišās krāsas bija stingras, savukārt, tumšākās krāsas bija birstošākas

 And here is a look using solely eye shadows from this palette / Un šeit ir mans meikaps izmantojot acu ēnas tikai no šīs paletes

As you can see I am totally spring/summer ready and chose really warm colors that remind me of summer sunset! / Kā jau vari redzēt esmu jau ļoti lielās pavasara/vasaras gaidās un izmantoju ļoti siltus toņus, kas man atgādināja vasaras saulrietu!

Haha, and please go easy on me- I am no makeup artist or expert- just an ethusiast! :)
Haha, neesiet bargi pret mani, jo neesmu vizāžiste vai makeup eksperte, tikai entuziaste! :)

I think that this palette  would make the perfect gift for a teenager just getting into makeup or for someone that wants to experiment before purchasing similar shades from more established or higher-end brands. Overall I am happy with this palette, I think that the price for it is fair- you can get it for $11 ( price + shipping). Let me know if you would be interested in seeing more makeup looks with this palette or just makeup looks in general!

Manuprāt, šī acu ēnu palete varētu būt lieliska dāvana tīnei, kura tikai tagad ir sākusi interesēties pat kosmētiku, vai arī kādai, kurai patīk eksperimentēt ar acu kosmētiku nepērkot dārgos zīmolu produktus. Kopumā es teiktu, ka esmu diezgan apmierināta ar šo paleti, kā arī uzskatu, ka cena ir godīga un atbilst tam ko tu vari saņemt- tikai 11 dolāri ( cena + piegāde)! Uzraksti komentāros, ja vēlētos redzēt vēl kādu "meikapa look" ar šo paleti, vai arī jebkādu citu izskatu ar skaistumkopšanas produktiem.

  2. I would be a bit worried about the safety, especially since it is eye make-up... I have read news about even official brands in China using very harsh chemicals banned by FDAs in other countries...

    1. I definitely understand where the concerns come from- I was pretty worried about ordering makeup from Ebay as well, I also stated that in blog post! Before using the palette, I checked all the ingredients that were given on the back and didn't find anything extremely harmful about them- well nothing more than in the makeup I use daily (Maybelline, L'oreal, Rimmel)!

  3. Oh wow, I love how you did your eyes here. I never would have thought to use an orangey bronze color but it looks perfect! This palette is great because it covers so many colors and shades. Good investment for sure!

  4. I love the makeup look you created! Your eyes are just so stunning, and the copper and gold tones just make them pop! I used to have this palette and other similar ones from Ebay. I believe they are the same as the BH and Coastal Scents palettes, just with their names stamped on. They're perfect for beginners as you said, and the colors are just so pretty!

  5. Un tu es pirmais cilvēks, kam acu krāsa līdzinās manējai! Kā dzintaru brūnais, kas mijas ar dīķa ūdens krāsu :) Un grims, ļoti labi tev piestāv!

  6. Wow! great review Maddie! I agree with you, cheap makeup can be tricky especially when they are made from China. i love the colors in your palette btw, the look gorgeous and anyone can create different looks using those eyeshadows but like what you said, it might be different from other makeups because of its medium quality. Btw you look sooo spring gorgeous on your makeup! dear,you are good! I love the combination of clors in your eyes. So fresh and sweet at the same time! :)

    love lots,
    Tin

  12. Skaisti uz actiņām Tev izskatās, skaists makeup! :) Piekrītu, ka tāda palete ir perfekta tīnei vai meitenei, kurai nav svarīgi, lai būtu zīmola kosmētika. :) Man arī ir tāda palete no Nyx visādos toņos, labi, ka tāda mājās ir. :)
