It is time for a new post about a Born Pretty Store product! I really love lip products, but I figured I should give a different product a try too, so I went for this glittery eyeshadow trio palette. It came in three pretty looking colors that will suit any skin tone: black, gold and silver. A great combination for party looks!
The eyeshadow palette comes in a golden and black box. The golden area has a different pattern, which makes the package stand out. When you open the package, the palette itself looks kind of boring. It is a simple plastic palette with a see-through top and golden bottom. Besides the three eyeshadows, the palette also contains a double-sided sponge applicator. I tend to not like the sponge applicators that come with packages, so I did not even bother giving it a try (just so you know). I always opt for my own brushes, especially when the products are a more inexpensive (though there are times where I have been pleasantly surprised).
I think the three eyeshadows look very pretty and the amount of sparkle in it seems incredible. On the left you have the black shade, which has golden sparkles in it. The glitters divide nicely with the black eyeshadow after swatching it. The middle shade is golden-brown with even more golden glitters in it. This is probably my favorite shade out of the three, because it is the most wearable one on my skin tone. The sparkles are distributed less evenly than in the black eyeshadow, but the shade and the glitters in the golden eyeshadow are way more intense, so I do not mind. On the right we have the silver eyeshadow with golden-ish (they look golden!) glitters and a metallic sheen. It is very cool and vibrant on my skin tone.
This was the first swatch and swipe, and I must say that they look nicely pigmented. But after having used it several times, the intensity of both the shade and the glitter has decreased slightly. The golden and silver shade remain the most intense, and the black eyeshadow is the softest of them all. This is not necessarily a bad thing, because a really intense black shade can be intimidating. However, such a soft one will work nicely for a smokey eye! All and all, I am pretty impressed with the pigmentation, because I expect bad/little pigmentation (on my skin tone) when it comes to eyeshadows from budget brands (which is why I usually do not try out the eyeshadows)!
On Born Pretty Store the eyeshadows are described as waterproof in the title, this is definitely not the case. However, they do remain on my eyes throughout the day with a primer underneath. Especially when applied heavily. On the picture above I used the golden eyeshadow on my lower lash line, the soft smokey black in my outer-V (you can see it properly on my right eye) and I used the silver eyeshadow in my inner-V. The eyeshadows are very easy to apply, but because of all the small sparkles and glitters in there.. you can imagine that it does have a bit of fallout. I think the trio palette is a fun palette to play with for daily looks (yes, you can do daily looks with it) and party looks when you are still a makeup beginner and are still finding your feet, or you just do not want to spend a load of money on eyeshadow! I will surely be wearing the golden-brown eyeshadow a lot and I like that it is a nice budget version for "Half-Baked" (but less intense and more glittery - and also way cheaper). You can buy this glittery eyeshadow trio palette for $2.99, which is less than a dollar per shade. What do you think? Worth it?! Born Pretty Store is offering a 10% discount coupon on products without a current discount and free shipping worldwide, so you can try their products yourself!

Because the pigmentation is not bad at all and the longevity on my eyes was surprisingly reasonable, I am pretty satisfied with the trio eyeshadow palette! What must eyeshadows of budget brands offer for you to be happy with it? Would you find this one appealing enough? Tell me what you think!
