So I am back with another review and it’s on my most loved thing and that is an eyeshadow palette. Eyeshadows and nail paints make me the happiest as far as makeup is concerned. I just cannot resist myself whenever I see a new eyeshadow in the market. Maybelline came up with this super cool range and I picked up this variant. Let’s read more about Maybelline The City Mini Eyeshadow Palette Chill Brunch Neutrals.
The City Mini Palette features six dramatic shades that are perfect for creating custom eye makeup looks. From Graffiti Pop and Concrete Runway to Rooftop Bronzes and Chill Brunch Neutrals, make a lasting impression with Maybelline’s six-shade mini eyeshadow palette.
My Experience with Maybelline The City Mini Eyeshadow Palette Chill Brunch Neutrals:
So, first of all, starting with the packaging. The palette is covered in a cardboard case, which is super cute; the shades of the palette are visible from the centre. The palette is a black case and you can see the shades through the transparent area. At the back, the ingredient list is mentioned and also how to create the eye look using this palette is shown. The palette consists of six different shades with different finishes, like matte, satin and glittery.
Shade 1: This is an off-white shade and the only transition shade having a matte finish in this palette. The texture is very creamy. But it has powdery consistency and falls out during application. It will not show up on the lid easily.
Shade 2: This is a metallic dark bronze kind of shade with gold glitter, having great fall out. This shade has superb pigmentation though.
Shade 3: This is kind of rosy taupe shade having a satin finish. This shade has a little fallout issue. The pigmentation is not that great. You’ll need to work to get the colour payoff.
Shade 4: This is a kind of ashy grey colour having silver glitter in it and a little fallout. This too has great pigmentation.
Shade 5: This one is a taupe gold shade having golden glitter in it and the pigmentation is great.
Shade 6: This is a brown shade having a satin finish. This shade has the least fallout.
Overall, the packaging is very cute as it’s very tiny and does not require much space – just slip it into your bag. I love the texture of the eyeshadows. It’s very creamy and it’s better than the other Maybelline Eyeshadow Palettes. The pigmentation is superb but shades 1 and 3 need to be built up for the full color payoff.
Coming to the staying power, it lasts for 7-8 hours, which I’m quite impressed with. Now the two things I am disappointed with are a) almost every shade falls out during application and b) the price of the palette. You only get 6.1 g of product and six shadows for INR 750. I think it’s a bit high for a brand like Maybelline.
Pros of Maybelline The City Mini Eyeshadow Palette Chill Brunch Neutrals:
Most shades are well pigmented.
Cons of Maybelline The City Mini Eyeshadow Palette Chill Brunch Neutrals:
Shadows fall out a lot.
IMBB Rating: 3.9/5
Would I Repurchase/Recommend Maybelline The City Mini Eyeshadow Palette Chill Brunch Neutrals?
I do like the concept, shade selection and texture of this palette but I think there are better options in the market. So, I won’t repurchase this one. Since pigmentation is good I might try another variant, though. If you too love eyeshadows, you may give this one a shot.
