The Eyeshadow Palette: Every Girl's Best Friend
It's a fact that girls love eyeshadow. Girls of every skin tone and every eye color. And there's as many eyeshadow colors as the rainbow and many more. Even more than just loving eyeshadow, we love eyeshadow palettes. There's just something about all those colors put together in a row that makes us want to buy them. Of course many times we end up using a favorite few the majority of the time, but it's very handy to have those other complimentary colors there when you just want to play around with something different.
