Eye Shadow's

Here is an indepth look at the eyeshadows I bought.
First is a Maybelline trio in Chocolate Mousse. The colors are not very pigmented, and are very neutral. They can make a good smokey eye if you really put some effort into it. The lightest would be the all over lid color, then the middle would be the crease, and the last in the outer corner, blend it all together and you have a smokey eye.
Here is the pigmentation of the Maybelline trio in Chocolate Mousse, The colors are lightest on the right and darkest on the left. The color in the middle you can't really see because of my skin pigmentation and on my eye it doesn't really show up either, I find the colors easily blendable.
A 1.99 palette at and that is why i decided to pick this one up, I had no hopes for them being very pigmented since I'm usually only into neutral eyes and usually don't use color, this would be for when I wanted that pop of color. It comes with 12 shadows. It is a Jasmine La Belle cosmetics brand.
The Jasmine La Belle cosmetics 12 shadow palatte comes with two pinks, two blues, a purple, a purple-ish brown, a brownish blue, a green, two light browns and two grey-ish colors. I find the color pay off just o.k for eyeshadow but great for 1.99.
Here's the swatches, following in the order of the palette. The dark pink, the two blues, and the dark grey color in the bottom corner, I found were the most pigmented colors, the others I had to work at to get to show up on my skin.
Next is a Covergirl trip in Shimmering sands, if you think you're seeing double, you're not. These colors are almost exactly the same as the Maybelline in Chocolate mousse, and I didn't realize that from the Ulta website. These colors have more shimmer in them though. I find that the color in the middle doesn't really show up if you put it on top of the lightest color, I can't seem to find it if it's been placed on top. The darkest color has no problem with pigmentation though.
Swatches from the above trio. The darkest color on the left has the highest color pay off, and the lightest follows suit next, I only have problems with the middle color in which I had to layer on top of to get to show up this well on my skin.
Next is a Maybelline eyestudio quad in Copper chic, these colors are super shimmery and as you can kind of tell have quite a bit of fall-out.
They are highly pigmented colors and I think they have the highest color pay off out of the entire lot that I bought. I personally love the middle two colors the most. When I bought this quad I thought that it would be much larger, but the quad is only about 2 1/2 - 3 inches wide. The colors are all shimmery colors, no matte which sometimes bothers me.
From the swatches above I think they all have great color pay off, as these are just one swipe swatches. I used the white for the all over lid color, and the 3rd for the crease and then the last for the outer corner, and that's the look I usually wear. But I have also used the white for a inner corner and brow bone highlight and then the other colors as the main look and I found that this white color to be just a tad bit too shimmery for my inner corner highlight.
