Colormates, Profusion, Whatever Other Name They Go By Swatches

post #1 of 48
Thread Starter 

I remember seeing someone post something about these and then people were wondering about pigmentation.  I was at Big Lots today and picked up 2 that were Colormates.  Then I headed over to Walgreens and saw the same palette (different colors) and it was called Profusion.  The ones from Big Lots have no writing on them at all and I threw away the packageing while I was out.  I know one was called Island Oasis and can't remember the other one.  These were both $1.50.  I'll be heading back to Big Lots either this week or next so I'll get the name for the other one.  I'm guessing the one from Walgreen's is called Color Me Glow, that's either the name or the name of the palette.  This one was $1.  Anyways onto the swatches.  These are surprisingly amazing.  Great pigmentation.

LOL I was thinking of posting my own swatches on those but keep putting it off! LOL Let me go grab mine and I'll give you the names off of it. Hmm, no names on it.

 

The cover labels say, "Colour me glow" 12 shades eyeshadow Profusion and each one is numbered. I have all eight... I think.... Yup all eight. These don't have any unique names just numbers. You're right about the price, they were $1 at Walgreens.

The last set of swatches you did are from palette 7. I'm now going to have hunt down the other two you have since those colors are not exactly like the ones from the Profusion line! lol

I saw these at Walgreens too- i bought a big palette at Five Below yesterday. I liked the shimmer in the palette, but left behind these I saw today because they were too glittery for me.  Very pretty though - and the swatches look better than I expected so I now I'm rethinking.   I'm wearing a look today from the palette and it lasted through a nap this afternoon (I used a primer though)

All these were from Walgreens?  The one by me only had the one I got.  I wonder where else you can get these.  Oooh I want 1, 2 and 6!  Mine doesnt have a number :X

Vampire, you're absolutely right about the glitter. Many of the browns have huge pieces of glitter like in palette 5 - 8. The first four were more shimmery than glittery.

Try RiteAid if you have one near you. I think I saw this line there as well.

The glitter reminds me of Elf.  The glitter never really sticks to me though.  It always falls off o.O

post #7 of 48

okay I'm glad I'm not crazy then... the palettes from Five Below were definitely more shmmery, and not glittery.  No elf books at walgreens though which is why I peeked in today. lol

The 2 I got from BL were shimmery not glittery too.

Well those ELF items I found looked like the employees just set it out that day. I'm sure it's sold out now! I wish I didn't leave my money at home! LOL Oh well.

 

 

As for the glitter in palettes 5 - 8 the pieces are indeed large and it's all the same color glitter - a blue-green glitter. Looks like the ingredients label is the exact same on all the palettes.

Did you grab the items then? LOL I'm still kicking myself over not doing it myself since it looked like the display only held like five of each item at most.

I didn't actually lol.  I imagine they will be there for a while though because that BL is not very busy and makeup tends to stay there a long time.  Plus the display was kinda hidden

post #13 of 48

Well hopefully at some point the books will make it someplace near me... lol  I guess I could just order online but I hate ordering make-up online because of how long it sits on a truck.

I HATE Elf shipping with a passion.  I will never again buy online from them unless they have a 50% off with free shipping sale lol

post #15 of 48

THAT slow, huh? That would worry me in the summer. I had to return a bunch of AVON lipsticks because they had all melted in the shipping process - and they ship fast.  Its not like I live in the southern half of the country either...

They are slow, they overcharge and they don't pack it well so it breaks

post #17 of 48

I made a promise that I wouldn't buy anymore make up until I got my bonus from work in July. I'm gonna have to go to Big Lots, Walgreen, Forever 21......my list is growing!

Hahaha omg my list is like never ending

See this is why I avoid going out to the stores by myself. If I go down one particular street in town I pass by Cosmoprof and end up spending WAY too much money there on OPI and other products. I go down the other street and I pass by Sally's along with Hobby Lobby and Michael's. If I have take my daughter to her practice I pass by Fred Meyers. If I have to run to the grocery store, Walgreens is right across the street and I have to pass RiteAid on my right. If I have to take the highway I have to pass the mall which of course has Sephora, Macy's and MAC! (I go in to MAC to play with/see their stuff but I don't buy, lol). Basically any of the main streets I have to drive on to get some place I pass by some store that I'm tempted to stop at and spend, spend, spend! LOL

Hahah  that's rough!

post #21 of 48

I basically have to put blinders on when driving or take someone with me to remind me that we don't have time to stop off at whatever store we're passing. Even worse... next door to my daughters' summer school (eldest is taking radio broadcasting, middle is taking culinary arts) is Ed Wyse. I have their father drop and pick them up from school! LOL

Lol ouch!  I have a similarish problem.  I drop my daughter off for preschool (to help her speech grow she was a late talker) 3 days a week 9-12:30 and instead of driving home I go out and shop.  It's so bad lol.  I know I should go straight home but I can't help it :(

Saw another set of these as Pacific Northwest Beauty Supply. Those retailed for $3.49 each despite the fact it's EXACTLY the same as Profusion and Colormates. The ones at the supply store were called Beauty-Treats.

3.49!!!!!????  :P

post #25 of 48

Yup, $3.49, my eyes practically bugged out of my head. Those come in eight different palettes just like the Profusion. They had tons of other stuff from Beauty-Treats but everything was three (or more) times as much as what you can find at other stores. Like the glitter cream palettes - they were selling those for $9.99 when I've seen them at Walgreens for $2.49.

omg lol mark up much

post #27 of 48

Absolutely! I have a feeling if I had a pro card with them, since it is a salon/beauty supply, that I would pay 50% less since all the other products, with a pro card, was 50% less. Still, that just irritates me that they would rip customers off on a line that you can pick up at the Dollar Store, Big Lots or Walgreens for half off or more.

I agree It's shocking lol.  Here at the 99 cent only stores they have a lot of baby/toddler clothing that I've seen at Marshall's or TJ selling for like 8 bucks. It's no name brand stuff too.  Literally no name cheapy clothes

post #29 of 48

I went to Walgreens and Big Lots and didn't see any of this make up :( I did see a palette of 48 shadows from Diamond Cosmetics at Big Lots so I bought it hehe (Technically, I didn't spend any money on it, I returned a shirt that I bought and didn't like when I tried it on so I used that money. Hubby can't say I broke my promise :D ) I did some swatches, not all of them tho. I'm still gonna keep my eyes open for these.

post #30 of 48

If you have a dollar type store try there. Some of those dollar type stores sell them as well.
