I love trying new eyeshadow’s out ,especially drugstore makeup because high-end products are costly and does not suit everyone’s budget. Because Maybelline is one of my favourite drugstore brands I decided to get the ‘Maybelline Diamond Glow pallete to try out.
REVIEW: Okay so the packaging is just in a square plastic case with a transparent clip lid. It is also very light in weight. The Maybelline Diamond Glow palette contains 4 different colours being white, silver, dark purple and pink and to top it off they all have a shimmer finish to it. It also comes with a small brush applicator so that you can apply your shadows .
The eyeshadows does have a fall out so you do need to tap the excess out and then apply. Shimmer eyeshadow’s are really messy when they tend to fall all over the eyes(glitter all over).The silver and dark purple shades are pigmented but I do find them to be a bit chalky.
The white shade is perfect for highlighting the brow bone and inner corners off the eyes. The dark purple colour is pigmented and is my favourite shade out of them all. The pink, silver and white shade when blended out almost look like the same colour. Is it just me? OR does this happen to anyone else? Also it does not apply well with a wet applicator/ brush… (I guess because I am a brown skin girl😂)
In conclusion… I would NOT recommend this in my opinion, It did not work well for me.But then again, it could show up better used with primer. Also, what works for you might not work for me and what works for me might not necessary work for you!
I really taught that the pink would look pink but actually when all blended in its like a sheer shimmer like colour similar to the white/silver shade. Wish this palette had some matte shades…
There are not many looks to create with this tiny palette but if you just like using one or two colours then this would be great for YOU! Also, it is afforable
TIP: Using the dark purple on the entire lid and white shade for the inner corners looks great for a party look.. OR highlighting the brow bone with the white shade.
This retails for R110* and can be found at your local clicks stores, Dischem pharmacies/ (any local drugstores).
Did you try this product / what did you think ?
In the picture below it took me two times to swatch these colours but they really don’t look like this once blended…
