There was a display containing a bunch of these Absolute! brand “Perfect Ten Colors” eye shadow palettes. I think there were only two varieties but both contained very similar shades. If I remember correctly, the only difference was one contained a bright yellow and perhaps one more blue/green shade and the other palette had a bit more brown in it.
Even though it’s winter, I’m currently obsessed with bright colors so I had to scoop one up, especially since it was only $2.49. I’m not sure what the other palette is called but the palette I bought with the brighter colors is appropriately called “Rainbow” and contains 10 eye shadows along with a sponge-tip applicator.
I expected the colors to be much more sheer compared to the Nicka K but I was pleasantly surprised. Although the texture of the shadows isn’t as buttery smooth, the color payoff is still really great as you’ll be able to tell from the swatches.
The Rainbow palette probably isn’t the best palette for work or a professional environment but if you’re looking for an inexpensive palette with some fun, pigmented colors, do give it a try.
[oops, I didn’t realize that when I took the photos that I cut off the left- and right-most shades. You can still see them a little bit but I’ll try to update with better pics soon.]
Here’s a sampling of the shades in the Rainbow palette:
