Eyeshadow Palette by Maybelline
It’s my first time to try Maybelline powder eyeshadow, you guys! I’ll be honest (as I always am), I’ve never been too happy with most drugstore eyeshadows I’ve tried. My general observation is that they are lacking in pigment, chalky, have fallout galore and don’t last too long on the lids. Of course, when used with a primer, the shadows become salvageable. However, I was particularly excited about this new Maybelline offering as I don’t think a lot of drugstore brands carry a 12-pan eyeshadow palette a la Urban Decay.
Also, I’ve had good experience with their Color Tattoo cream shadows so this new palette definitely had me intrigued. The shade selection also helped convince me that it’s something worth checking out – I find it somewhat a cross between the NARSissist palette and the Naked 2 palette. One gorgeous shade in here reminds me of my favorite shade in the NARsissist palette. So the big question – is this Php695 Maybelline palette worth it – because you are *wink* (if you don’t get it, watch this).
Shades. The palette is a mix of neutral, warm and cool-toned shades. Break it into three quads and you can easily create looks from shades that go well together. The “middle quad” with the warm shades are the true stars of the palette for me. The first quad” is made up of neutral shades and are quite dry and powdery save for the taupe shade on the bottom right. The third quad is made up of cool tones and are okay, except for the one on the topmost right which shade is something that caught my attention upon swatching.
Texture. The mattes in general are really sheer and apply quite patchily as most of them are dry. Two shades (first shades from the 2nd and 3rd quad) feel creamier than the others but are sheer as well. I have to do about two to three layers for them to completely even out and appear bold. The frosts and satins apply better than the mattes – with three of them swatching exceptionally well – pigmented, smooth and velvety. The shimmering dark bronze shade (from 2nd quad) is my favorite among all and reminds me of the shade Fez in the Narsissist palette.
Longevity. Wear time is quite impressive for drugstore. My eye look sans primer (which I only did for testing purposes, you should definitely wear a primer when using this palette!) lasted almost the whole day. Fading began after 7 hours, but the eye look remained intact ’til after dinner time.
A 12-pan eyeshadow palette For Php675 sounds like a great bargain. But to be quite honest, I would have been happier if this was priced at Php500 flat. The iffy matte shades and the overall poor color pay-off of most of the shadows can’t warrant a full-on love from me. I appreciate the color selection that Maybelline curated for their first 12-pan nude palette but I wish it performed better. There are 4 standout shades which are the palette’s saving graces. Also, I recommend using a good primer underneath so the shadows fare better! I used the Benefit Air Patrol BB primer in the swatches above. I would recommend this palette to those starting their makeup kits and are only beginning to explore the world of eyeshadow. If you’ve a plenty o’palettes already, you definitely could skip on this.
