I don't go into Sally Beauty Supply often. I will stop in maybe once a month but I almost never buy anything. This last time however, I did end up buying 3 of the Sally Girl Connecting Eyeshadows. Initially I had my eye on the Revlon Shadowlinks, but read some poor reviews. These reviews said that the Sally Girl shadows were of better quality, so I wanted to give them a shot. Plus, they were only $.99. YES! You know I love a good beauty steal! I chose three colors, Beige, Rich Mocha, and Gun Metal.
Beige is just that, a matte beige color. This color would be best described as medium flesh toned.
Rich Mocha is a medium brown with micro glitter. I don't notice the glitter much when it is on my eye.
Gun Metal is the strangest name. It is a satin white, but beautiful highlight color.
The quality of these eyeshadows are good. I noticed that they do need several swipes of the brush to attain the pigmentation I desire. These are a little bit harder than a Wet N Wild eyeshadow, and there is some fallout with the shadows. These are not the quality of The Balm's matte eyeshadows in the Meet Matte Nude palette.
You are probably asking yourself if I like them. The answer is yes! Even though the quality isn't as creamy as other shadows, the staying power is really great! I love that the beige color is the same color of my eyelid, and that the rich mocha has just enough definition to go into my crease. Together, these shadows create a simple, mostly matte, neutral eye.
I also love how you can pick and choose from over 48 different colors and create your own connecting compact like I did!
Have you tried these eyeshadows? I'd love to hear your thoughts! Leave me a comment and let me know!
