If you remember my post valentine’s haul, I ordered quite a lot and the HYPHEN sent me a sponsored item for me to review. Thank you hyphen~
The owner knows how much I suddenly got addicted to palettes, specifically netural palettes, so she sent me the maybelline eye studtio cream eyeshadow to try.
Swatches and phtos…
Please excuse the messy palette, I played with it this morning and went crazy blending, haha~
This is the kind of neutral colors I want for my eyeshadow, I LOVE IT!
Originally, I didn’t want to make an EOTD/FOTD with this product until I have my eye primer yet. Yes, it’s funny how I have a couple of palettes already and don’t have an eye primer yet. But I will be buying soon. So anyway, for tonight I decided to make one (please take note that I am still practicing my application skills for eyeshadows (this is very amateurish)
My thoughts about the product…
Of course rule of thumb when applying eye shadow is to prime the eyes first, maybe the result would be different when you apply primer. Never use without, mine last for only 2 hours max and I easily creased as soon as I arrived to work. As you can see, the colors are divine, but staying power isn’t that great (without primer that is). As soon as I get a hold of my primer, I will make another review and here’s to hoping it would last. What’s good about it is the color, being neutral, even if it creased, it blended with my natural eye lid color. I just patted the excess oil with some tissue, then blotting paper and retouched.
- pigmented enough
- just the right hint of shimmer
- safe for ladies who wear contact lens
- safe for sensitive eyes
- luminous, really appears pretty in the lids
- available at the HYPHEN store
- applying the cream formula is easy – best applied with clean fingers
- not available locally
- didn’t last me more than 2 hours - needed to retouch
- may not suit oily faced ladies (like me) for everyday wear – specially on humid places
