I wrote a first impression post on this palette (link here), now here’s the review!
Description: A neutral eyeshadow palette with 12 shades. Total 9.6 grams of product, each individual pan has 0.8g product. No mirror included. It does come with a dual ended sponge tip applicator (not included in pictures).
Where to buy: Drugstores, pharmacies, supermarkets, anywhere there’s a Maybelline display.
Price: MYR 69.90 (discounts can bring it down to less than MYR 50 so don’t buy at full price!! Seriously!!!).
All in one palette for a versatile neutral look.
Tanned skin friendly because the dark colours actually show up on tanned skin tones.
Slim and travel friendly.
Good combination of matte and shimmer shadows.
Shimmer shadows are nicely pigmented.
Not all shades are pigmented (not dark skin friendly!).
Creases on the eyelids (all shades).
Matte shadows are not very blendable.
Eyeshadow primer is crucial because it has little lasting power.
OK, these are a few points to note.
Although they are not very pigmented, I think beginners would get use out of it because there’s no way you can go overboard.
You definitely need to use an eyeshadow primer to avoid creasing and also since the colours are not very pigmented.
Although there are so many cons, I did, at one point, find myself packing it when traveling with my makeup for a performance because the palette is all encompassing for a basic neutral eyeshadow look that is versatile.
If you haven’t already noticed, Sandy, Siren, Greige, and After Hours have been dug into. Sandy and Siren are the best shades of the palette. After Hours is a matte black that is not pigmented so that it can be used to deepen the outer corner without the black going overboard. Greige is often used to deepen the crease colour.
Bareskin looks white on the pan but it swatches as a sparkly nude that can be used as an inner corner highlight.
Although I do use it often, they really are not really well performing eyeshadows except for the two shimmery shades, hence the rating.
