Almay Intense I-Color Trio for Hazels

At the end of last month, I won a giveaway hosted by Nicole V. of NV Beauty and I was so thrilled!! I don't have much luck when it comes to giveaways so this was so unexpected.

I blogged about this prize I won, already, which you can check out HERE. Nicole included much more than just the eyeshadow trio I was hoping for. So go take a peek and see.

This post is to focus on the main prize, the reason why I entered the giveaway in the first place. Nicole was giving away an Almay eyeshadow trio. I've never tried Almay before and the swatches that she showed off were so pretty.

Here, take a look and see for yourselves.

Obviously, I don't have hazel eyes but I loved these shadows. I believe that anyone with any eye color can wear any eyeshadow they want.

These colors are so pretty. I loved them all but my most favorite is the bottom shade, the steel gray shade. It is such a pretty shimmery taupe color. I loved it. I think it will look very nice all on its own for days that I don't feel like doing a full face of makeup.

All three shadows are shimmery and very soft. They apply very easily due to their great pigmentation. Blending these shadows was not a problem at all.

Thank you, Nicole, for choosing this trio as your giveaway prize. It's so great!

Luv & Luk,

♥♥ Products mentioned in this post were free to me. I won this item in a giveaway hosted by a fellow beauty blogger. These are my own thoughts and honest opinions. ♥♥


  1. I love the almay palette, i found them all at the dollar tree for a dollar i was so happy and they pretty nice and pigmented, please follow back

  2. @Britney, this is my first Almay and I really liked it. I haven't checked my Dollar Tree lately but I doubt that they have any of these left. For a buck and such a great product, there are some lucky ladies out there who snatched them all up! On my way to your blog right now :)
