Comments about Maybelline Expert Wear Eyeshadow:

I am in love with the shade Raw Ruby! It has a black base with red shimmer throughout, and that's exactly what I hoped it would be. The formula is amazing, it feels so silky, and so pigmented for such an affordable price. I highly recommend this shade if you love smokey eyes as much as I do!

          I love Maybelline, specially all it's 24 hour products. I'm a field agent and the heat and cold doesn't help makeup. I like be presentable from morning to night and their products help no to have to retouch often.
          That helps a lot! Thank you < 3

          Comments about Maybelline Expert Wear Eyeshadow:

          I got this eyeshadow in the kacki camo color. So I can speak for the other shades. I'll start with what I liked. The pigmentation is lovely better than I remember from Maybelline. A little goes a long way and the color is lovely. A gorgeous tan with green in it. What I didn't like however was that the shade goes on a LOT darker than you would guess looking at it in the pan. It's still pretty but it's not what I planned on buying. Additionally the pigment that is used stains. I'm lucky I did a Swatch test on my arm first, because there was still color on my arm even after breaking out the rubbing alcohol to try and get it off. *Note using a eyelid primer does seem to solve this problem. Finally while there's great pigment it seems to wear off easily. I was using several eyeshadows for my look and I noticed I had to keep touching this color up in particular. In short it's pretty and the formula is really silky but I'm not planning on purchasing any more of the shades.

              I ordered the green one. It is much deeper than the photo, but I still like it. It is a satiny deep olive green, but isn't too dark that it just comes off as black. It applies smoothly and blends well. I have been adding this to the outer half/crease and pairing it with a bright golden green shimmer on the lid. I have also applied it wet as a liner with just a skin tone matte shade on the lid. Love it both ways! It brings out my bright green eyes!

              The Glo Down

              By MB

              from USA

              Comments about Maybelline Expert Wear Eyeshadow:

              The Glo Down is one of the most gorgeous metallic golds I've ever tried. (Reminded me a lot of the gold highlight color from Carli Bybel's palette!) It is very glittery, but it's got high-impact shine and no kickback/fallout whatsoever. Totally recommend.

                        Hi Deb, unfortunately Pink Petal eye shadow was discontinued. We do not have an exact replacement, but we recommend checking out our Expert Wear Eye Shadows in the shades Seashell and Nude Glow. We also recommend checking out The City Mini Palette in Downtown Sunrise, which includes a similar pink shade. We hope this helps!

                        Hi there Jo! We're here to help. Metallic shadows tend to have an undertone of gold/silver giving it a very foiled effect. Pearl shadows are often not as pigmented, but have subtle glitters, giving almost like a natural look. Shimmer shadows are like glitter shadows, but are less opaque in pigmentation. We hope this helps!
