I love these eyeshadows! I have them in many colors but my most used shades are this shimmery turquoise and bronze color. Like someone else mentioned its easier to apply with the applicator rather than a brush. but it blends nicely when used with a brush. Definitely recommend these.
I love Sparkling Wine, it is such a beautiful color and I don't own any color like this one. Sparkling Wine is a dark plum, rust, burgundy color with gold shimmer, the best i can describe it. If you're a MAC lover, many people say this is a dupe for Trax. The color does seem to go on sheer when using a brush, but when using the applicator it comes with it goes on much truer to color. I love using this color for a day time smoky eye, since it's not too dark. You get a lot of product and the price is already cheap, but I wait until they are on clearance at Rite-Aid for like a little over $1, plus you can find $1 coupons in the store usually. The packaging is nice and small too, so great for traveling.
Makes Eyes Pop
“Emerald” is a great color for those that have tan skin or want to try a new shade for summer or spring. Maybelline’s eyeshadows are all hypoallergenic and great for those that suffer from allergies. I was looking for an aqua color that went on smoothely and wouldn’t irritate my eyes. I love that this bright green/blue shade lasts all day and is easily blended with other shades. I first apply Vanilla over my entire lid. On my lower lid I use “Emerald” and “Tranquil Sands” in the crease. To finish off the look, I apply Loreals Infallible black liner to my upper and lower lid and two coats of Maybelline’s black washable mascara. I have severe allergies and would recommend Maybellines hypoallergenic eyeshadows to anyone that gets itchy eyes from makeup. I love that “Emerald” lasts all day and doesn’t crease on my eyes. The shadow are easily applied and go on like butter. I have tried Revlon, Wet and Wild, and Mac eyeshadows, but they irritate my eyes and look flakey over the course of the day. For just a few dollars, Maybellines “Emerald” shade goes on smoothely and doesn’t give me itchy eyes. The shade is a beautifl aqua color and gives eyes an instant pop. I have bought Maybellines eyeshadows over the years and will continue to buy them because they offer a great value.
A purple that goes with every eye color
I was looking for a purple shade that would look great on my medium brown eyes. Maybelline's Lux Lilac is a great shade for every eye color. I have severe allergies and have found that Maybellinee's eye-shadows are hypoallergenic and don't irritate my eyes. The purple shade is a shimmery shade that brightens and makes eyes look bigger. After I apply Maybelline's "Vanilla" shade to my entire eye, I use a smaller eyeshadow brush to apply "Lux Lilac" to the crease. I then add "Crema de Cocoa" above the purple shade and blend. I use Loreal's black infallible liner to line my top and bottom lashes. I finish the look off with two coats of Maybelline's black Mascara. I love that this shadow brings out the color of my eyes without looking overwhelming. I also love this shadow because it washes off easily and does not itch eyes. Maybelline's eye-shadows cost a few dollars and are easily blended, to create a smokey eye or can be used as a highlighter on ones eyes. I would recommend Maybelline's eye-shadows to anyone that suffers from allergies and doesn't want to pay a great deal of money for eye makeup. I have worn Maybelline's eyeshadows for years and will continue to buy them because they go on creamy and are non-irritating.
I have so many shades!
I have these singles in numerous shades and I love them! I have Linen, Nutmeg, a silver, and more! I also have duos, trios and quads. Maybelline is a wonderful drugstore brand with great pricing, variety of product, but so-so color payoff!
I really like these drugstore single eyeshadows. They are very nicely pigmented and easy to apply and blend. I especially like the matte ones they offer. My fav is made for mocha a dark chocolate brown. But I also like vanilla and champagne fizz for a highlight. It's a product I'd recommend.
