You all know how much I love doing eye makeups and what I love most and wear most is the smoky eyes and nude lips look. Anamika could read my mind and she sent me many eyeshadow pallets which are ideal for creating smoky eyes. So, today’s review is on such a pallet from Maybelline. It’s called Natural Smokes.
About Maybelline Expert Wear Eye Shadow Quad :
Rich, velvety textures glide on effortlessly with superior smoothness. The velvet-tip applicator included in Maybelline New York Expert Wear Eyeshadow Quads blends without tugging or pulling. Ophthalmologist tested.
My experience with Maybelline Expert Wear Eye Shadow Quad Natural Smokes:
Packaging: It is a black curvy case with a transparent lid to see the colors within and the lid shuts perfectly. Cute, sturdy and goes easily in the smallest vanities. It even has two sponge applicator of decent quality. Ingredients and instructions and every other detail written at the back.
As dear Maybelline has “named” their shades as per their usage, I’ll give the details on that basis.
Base: A beige. It looks matte on the pallet but has finest of shimmers which add to the sheen. It has a smooth satin finish, blends easily and goes well with the other shades of the pallets, but on the down side it has low pigmentation, and I have to swipe 3-4 times to make it visible.
Lid: A taupe colored shadow with minute glitters. The shimmers are soft and add sheen to the shadow. The color is really pretty and I am fond of such shades. It has decent pigmentation, blends well and stays long.
Crease: It is a shimmery reddish brown. The shimmers are fine and the shadow blends well without tugging or pulling. The texture is soft, smooth; color payoff is great and wears long.
Liner: This is my most favorite of the fours shadows. It’s a charcoal black colored eyeshadow, matte but utterly gorgeous. It has smooth-buttery texture, is pigmented, long wearing and crease-proof.
What I like about Maybelline Expert Wear Eye Shadow Quad Natural Smokes:
- Beautiful colors.
- Soft glitters.
- Satiny smooth texture.
- Blends well.
- No fallouts.
- Long wearing.
- Beautiful packaging.
What I don’t like about Maybelline Expert Wear Eye Shadow Quad Natural Smokes:
- Pigmentations of the “base” color can be improved
Final Thoughts: Overall a pretty good pallet. Pretty colors, smooth buttery textured, decently pigmented and has a great staying power. I would definitely recommend this palette to an eye makeup beginner, as it has shades for everyday use, along with “how to use” guidelines.
