Maybelline Expertwear Eye Shadow – Urban Blues
The product I’m going to review today is an assorted palette from Maybelline which has 8 different shades. After my Deborah and Revlon trio and quads respectively, I was excited with these 8 colors to try on : yahoo:
The product comes with two applicators and they are no good. I use them as Q-tips for erasing unwanted strokes of shadows. :haanji:
Glide on silky color with the exclusive eight-hour formula that will not clump or flake. Your eyes will dance with soft, stay-true color that looks natural, easy, and never forced — no matter how dramatic your pallet. A professional-quality, velvety applicator ensures great eyes every time. Assorted pallet of eight coordinated colors.
6.25$ for 6.2 g on eBay. It’s pricey on Amazon though (7.99$) and 5$ if shopped for online. I got it as a gift.
Baby Blue/Dark Blue/Vanilla/Grey Suede/Blue Blazes/Navy Splash/Pretty Grey/Sterling.
My Take on Maybelline Expertwear Eye Shadow – Urban Blues:
Though I like this brand, I really don’t feel impressed by the quality of the eyeshadows in this palette. The assorted combination is really pretty, but I wish the colors were more pigmented with a greater staying power. I may be wrong, but personally, I find Maybelline products in India better than those available in the USA. The lighter colors really feel dusty without a primer. I have heard they work better when used wet, but I’m yet to try it like that. On the other hand, I really like the blue shade which is the third one from the left in first row. :woot: :woot:
Pros of Maybelline Expertwear Eye Shadow – Urban Blues:
- Decent price for 8 colors.
- Good combination of colors for that price.
- Good for day wear.
- Colors do have a wearable light shimmer.
- Contact-lens safe.
- Safe for sensitive eyes.
- Ophthalmologist tested.
- Poor staying power.
- Low pigmentation.
- Contains parabens.
This product is really not that bad, considering you can experiment with 8 different shades for beginners, but the lighter shades (pale blue, lavender, grey, white) barely deposit with any pigment, regardless of application method. The darker ones do provide pigment, but has fallout.
