Review: LB Sparkling Rich Shadow

First off, let me just say that applying makeup isn’t really my area of expertise. Thanks to the makeup tutorials on Youtube, I’ve learned a lot. I like to put on a little makeup when I’m in the mood. Also with a spot of makeup, I can disguise some minor imperfections. And when it comes to buying cosmetics, I don’t really fritter so much money away on expensive ones. Lucky me, I found this pretty but budget-friendly eye shadow palette sitting around the cosme rack in Don Quijote.

This was released last September of 2019. I purchased this sometime in November, probably. Keep reading if you want to know if it’s worth buying or not.
