Pro 96 Eyeshadow Palette Review

So I bought this two shades  little pot or whatever for about $3 on ebay from tomjerry1984. I loved it because not only was it very pigmented it had the bonus of being very creamy in texture. So I fell in love with it and I decided I would buy again from that seller. This time I wanted a palette. But everyone was talking about the cheap 120 palette. At the time I wanted a Sephora Endless Color Blockbuster  and  it didn't have the colors I wanted so I was like let me take a shot at this just in case it's a bad buy. So far I'm impressed.  

Sorry for the crappy quality

Okay it's no mac and doesn't have a a black in this one. I am dark skin so I bought a beige liquid foundation for a dollar to use as a base. As far as I can tell while using the foundation it is very pigmented. Especially the dark colors of course. The brighter color must be masked on.  The size of the  colors however are about the size of a dime 

So  my verdict is;
Buy only if you don't wear make up daily
Never spend  more than $15 USD on it. It's is worth the wait I paid only $11 on mine.  Never spend $20 on it, if that's the case buy the 120 palette which most US sellers sell for $20.
My opinion was I just wanted to be cautious before going all out on the 120 palette. This was still a good buy in my opinion.  I personally can't wait for all the combos I'll make.

Be sure to watch out for my video review I will make when I have time.


  1. heeeeeeeeey! :-) I am loving your blog! you think this is like bh's pallette? or coastals...or profusion's?

    does it have a baby powder kinda smell. I bought this style pallette on ebay for my mom (not from your seller) christmas time for a LOT (last minute I know ...dumb) but I was a little sorry I didn't have one i didn't even own a palette that big...just a bunch of little ones. but I didn't want to buy 2 at that price at that time of the year. I am thinking of trying your seller at that price. I am on a TIGHT budget. I have even DIY'd my own eye primer. (tons of recipes on YT!) you posted this awhile ago. Are you still relatively happy with it? It should be ok as long as I use a primer right? thanks


  2. I changed how I make my primers now. I mix my beige foundation with a foundation of my own skin color and powder now my own my primer works even better. And yes I am still in love with my palette.
