Love BRIGHT neon eyeshadows? Get in here quick!
You know if I’m posting a dupe it has to be something special or really good. I’m just not a girl that hunts dupes; I just like what I like and most dupes aren’t actually dupes… more like “close enoughs”. But I always talk about how WOC are always on top of beauty trends. Maybe it has something to do with spending an estimated $7.5 billion annually on beauty products, shelling out 80% more on cosmetics and twice as much on skin care as their non-Black counterparts. It’s one of those things we’re the pulse of. Once again we were years ahead of the neon eyeshadow trend that’s coming back this summer. I’m not saying we’re due any type of credit, just that we’re always early to the party.
Original 2013 post:
When Blac Chyna posted this Pro 28-Color Eyeshadow Palette on Instagram, I had to have it! I’ve seen countless palettes but hadn’t come across this particular one. I’m hooked on bright color for the summer and I needed each and every one of these colors. The only issue was that it was $40. As if! This is a non-branded palette, which means it isn’t customized to that particular brand and can easily be found on eBay. Sure enough I found the same one with the same colors and pattern on eBay for around $8.00. These are all swatched using my fingers on dry skin. Out of 28 colors I only had major issues with the third shade of blue and the neon yellow was just horrible. Although these are really good as stand alone colors, with the help of a primer you can slow down traffic. Use over a white base and pat the colors in with a shadow brush and you’ll stop traffic ;-).
