Hi Loves. I’m sure if you have Instagram and follow beauty and makeup related pages then you know how excited everyone got when this palette came out. I am a lover of nude shades and usually they are the first type of colors I tend to grab. I read reviews on the palette both good and bad, but decided to just pick it up and see how it worked for myself. I did see it at many Target and Ulta stores, but I picked mine up from Rite Aid which was having a 25% off the entire Maybelline collection sale. I got it for $8.00 but it was originally marked at $10.99.
The packaging is good quality. It is easy to carry with you in your bag for touch-up’s and travel. It did come with your typical cheap eyeshadow applicator but obviously you want to use a brush for better looking results and easier application and blending.
The palette comes with 12 shades. 6 shimmery shades and 6 matte shades. I will be honest and say that some shades are hit or miss. I feel that with some shades I am applying color forever onto my lid and still not getting any color payoff.
To tie it up I really love Maybelline and buy their products very often. This palette is still growing on me as I continue to use it and try new things to help out some of the colors. (One trick I find to work is putting some of the Maybelline clear brow gel on your lid and then packing the shimmery colors on with a flat shadow brush) It’s a great drugstore product at a great price for the number of shadows you get.
I hope these reviews can help 🙂
