These are the two latest palettes from LA Girl, VIP Desert Dream and Main Stage Desert Dream.
(what’s a PRE-PS? I’m not a color expert) The Main Stage palette has a nice colorful color story with some pastel and darker jewel tones. The VIP palette has warm, neutral tones which are more my style.
Of the three mattes I used for this look, thr yellow and rust were pigmented and easy to blend. The dark brown that I used in the outer corner took more layers to build up to the darkness I wanted.
The metallic shade I used has an interesting texture. I think the best way to describe it is like soft chunky glitter. I found the best way to apply this is to go in with you finger, lightly rubbing the pan to get product on your finger, then applying it to the lid. I used NYX glitter primer on the area where I applied that shade to get it to stick on better and reduce fallout through the day.
Overall, I like these larger LA Girl palettes. They usually retail for $15.99US and are available at Ulta, Target, CVS and Walmart to name a few stores and they go on sale pretty often for 40-50% off.
The only think I would change, and this is a personal preference, is the front of the palette has a plastic, jelly like texture.
Have you tried any of the LA Girl 16 pan palettes? What do you think of these two palettes?
Both palettes were gifted but reviews and thoughts are my own honest opinions.
