The first look was done with three matte shadows. I'm not a huge fan of matte colors, (I prefer lots and lots of GLITTER!!!) but I've been rocking this look all week! These colors are a great way to transition into mattes. They're easy to blend and work with, because let's face it mattes aren't nearly as forgiving as shimmers are.
The second look is with all shimmer shades. It was the first look I created with this palette. It's a good neutral day look, not too much but still pretty. I tried to do it similarity to how I would with a more expensive palette and I think it turned out pretty well. After applying a few different times, I noticed these shadows are very good for lining the top and bottom lash line. They're somewhat powdery which in this case makes them easier to smudge along the bottom lash line. Also they blend well into the rest of the shadow on the top lash line.
The last look is a bit more dramatic. The only color that isn't a brown in this palette is the black on the bottom right corner. I wanted to use it at least once, to see what it was like. I lined the top and bottom lashes with it and was very impressed. It's easy to work with and has great staying power much like the rest of the palette.
All in all this is a good product. You can't expect to get the same quality from a $10 product you would from a $50 one. As far as drugstore shadows go I think these are some of the best. They have great staying power and are super easy to work with. This is a great palette to travel with because you have lots of options, it's small, and if it breaks you won't have to work two Saturdays to buy a replacement. Props to Maybelline for opening the door to a whole new world of drugstore products.
