Haul & Swatches: Sally Girl Mini Baked Eye Shadows

When I was searching for baked makeup products, I ran across these Sally Girl Mini Baked Eyeshadows from Sally Beauty Supply. They sell for .99 each.  Yes, they are less than a dollar.   They don't have the best ingredients, but they are Paraben Free and free of most of the other chemicals I dodge.  Caveat:  They do contain Mineral Oil and BHT which may cause skin irritation, so don't buy if you are sensitive to these ingredients.

Price:  .99
Ingredients:  MICA ,TITANIUM DIOXIDE ,MINERAL OIL ,ETHYLHEXYL PALMITATE ,HYDROGENATED POLYISOBUTENE ,CETEARYL ALCOHOL ,DIMETHICONE ,GLYCERYL STEARATE ,XANTHAN GUM ,SODIUM LAURYL SULFATE ,BHT ,PHENOXYETHANOL ,CI 77492

I found these in a small display at the front register.  There are 12 colors available.  The containers are not labeled with the color name.  The actual product is a bit larger than a dime and is a healthy mound of eye shadow. 

I have not used them yet, but I did a finger swatch and these deliver nice shimmering color completely dry.  I always use my shadows wet, so it will be interesting to see how intense these will become.

  1. Be aware of SODIUM LAURYL SULFATE, BHT and PHENOXYETHANOL. Just parabens are not the only problematic chemicals. Those 3 listed are among the most harmful ones:

    SODIUM LAURYL SULFATE = skin&eye irritant, causes contact dermatitis
    BHT=endocrine disruptor, skin&lung toxicant and irritant, cancerogenic
    PHENOXYETHANOL=endocrine disruptor, carcinogen, linked to allergies and dermatitis

    Sometimes the cheap price of the product and lack of parabens does not guarantee the quality and safety of the product. I'd never use for myself this kind of product.
