I have been eyeing this ALMAY PURE BLENDS product for a while now. So when I went to TARGET to buys some ELF products, I picked this Almay eyeshadows instead. I didn't buy it because of the packaging at all or because I see it everywhere from Magazine to drugstores. What caught my eyes in this product was what it said in the packaging. As you can see from the first photo it said on the front packaging that this product is 98.2% natural and Hypoallergenic. The product info in the back of the packaging made me want to buy it even more!
- natural, beautiful color eyeshadow
- blend of antioxidants with lotus, orchid and acai
- PARABEN FREE; TALC FREE
- eco-friendly package made with 58% recycled material
- ophthalmologist tested
After I read that is PARABEN FREE, I bought it! I was so excited when I got home I couldn't wait to swatched it and use it. My excitement ended after I started swatching. The pigmentation of this eyeshadow is terrible. I had a hard time swatching because the colors won't show up on my skin so I decided to try it on my eyes. I even tried using two base together (UDPP and NYX JUMBO PENCIL ) but I still don't like it. I was so disappointed! I want to return this crap at Target and buy my ELF lipgloss!
