STEAL: Jewel Eyeshadows from Daiso Japan

Hi fellas! I'm back with another STEAL! I have 4 mini palettes to show you. These were sent to me by my aunt who lives in Japan, she bought these at Daiso (it's like Dollar Stores in US). I've heard that these are also available in Saizen, though I haven't seen one during my last visit at their Robinson's Ermita store.

  
 These are the sets I used to play with while I was still trying to learn eyeshadow techniques. They're cheap but they won't fail you. Great for everyday use or for starters.All these palettes come with a white and cream shimmery shades. I provided swatches below to show you how pigmented these colors are, with or without primer.  

 See, it's the same with or without primer. You can only tell by application, with primer, the eyeshadow glides easily and color was achieved by just a single stroke. On the other hand, applying this without primer, you need to brush the color twice to get the same result. :)

If you are a beginner, you don't need to jump into the high end bandwagon right away. You can start with local brands or cheaper brands that are high in quality. After all, its how you carry it. People can't tell what makeup brand you're using, unless the logo is written all over your face *LOL*. It is wise to try out samples or testers, or to buy dupes like these little wonders I have. :)
