Maybelline is a drug store favorite, always easy to find and reasonably priced. However, Maybelline is unfortunately not a cruelty free brand.
I found the colors to be quite beautiful, these are all neutral shades that are very flattering. I found the acutal shadow to be quite powdery and not that buildable. But the shades do apply smoothly, which I liked a lot. The shadows are not as pigmented as some other brands but that’s not necessarily a bad thing, especially if you’re not into the heavy eyeshadow look – I’m not.
Overall the palette is quite beautiful but requires a bit more effort than other eyeshadow palettes. There was more time spent on blending and there’s the eyeshadow fall out to consider as well as the pigmentation but if you prefer a softer eye look then you may love this palette.
