Our Editor has independently reviewed Maybelline NY products for a week and now it's time for the report. Maybelline NY has everything we need and want for spring and summer - these are easy-to-apply, long-lasting shadow sticks, gorgeous, glittery eyeshadows, and a useful highlighting blench that we want to guide in. It just made our team fall in love with eye shadows all over again.
The colour selection is subtle, certainly not to be confused with brighter offerings by the likes of Urban Decay. As this particular shade suggests, Pastel is the agenda of hues to mix and match as your end-look desires.Packaged to the usual standards of mac in a statement black patent case, the shadows show through a small box window to the front with the signature branded font visible from the off.
Application itself is straightforward, the powder breaks up easily, which can be tricky to not overload your brush, but if caution is taken to lightly dust you’ll have no trouble. Once applied to the eyelids, the shades are very subtle, making a nice compliment to fading out separate bolder hues but particularly successful for creating a feminine look which is understated but fashionable. The glitter catches the light for an added sparkle to your look and the range of hues gorgeously compliment one another to combine definition with shading.
