A very warm hello to all the beautiful divas. May you all be blessed with ever ending beauty and charm(Even this extremely hot summer which is breaking records won’t be able to reduce it a little bit). Most of us might be aware of the proverb “Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder”, let me add another phrase to it, to assess the beauty the beholder must have applied some eyeshadow to her eyes 😛 . I must say beautiful eyes are the mirror of one’s personality and they speak a lot about you. Not digressing from the point, here I am to review yet another product – Maybelline New York The 24K Gold Nude Palette Eyeshadow 🙂 .
The 24K eyeshadow palette has 12-shades-in-1 rose gold infused to create endless, natural and barely- there eye makeup looks. This eyeshadow palette enhances your makeup skills by allowing you to create different looks for different occasions and enables you to be versatile by using these 12 easy to wear blushed shades.
- 12 nude shades to play around with
- Smooth and easy application
INR 900 for 9 Grams.
This eyeshadow palette comes in a smooth golden plastic(Good quality) case with see through upper center which allows us to see/select shades without opening the case every time. The palette comes with a applicator flat brush which serves dual purpose (One side it can be used as a brush and the second side it has a sponge). The applicator enables you to mix and match your eye looks. The case is robust, compact and is travel friendly.
The Maybelline palette has 12 shades with 3 matte shades and remaining shades have shimmer and powdery texture. Some of the shades are really smooth and pigmented, however other shades including the shimmery ones, have fallout while application. The palette offers a bit of inconsistency due to this.
The Maybelline 24K Gold Nude eyeshadow palette has 12 shades, consisting matte (3) and shimmery shades. The brand has not defined the shades but the shades range from rose gold shimmery shade to dark bronze shades. I am sure most of the ladies/ girls will fall in love with the bronze shimmery shade with golden shimmer which is my personal favorite.
The shades lasts easily for 3-4 hours without primer. However, the use of primer increases the wear time considerably up to 5-6 hours.
I have been using this eyeshadow palette from last six months, the shades are beautiful without any doubt and lets you experiment with a bit of mix and match. However, maximum shades in this palette has shimmery + powdery texture which reduces the wear time. Also, the shimmery shades have problems of fall out during application and afterwards. I specially like the 3 matte shades due to their nice and smooth application, easy to blend and pigmentation properties. Maybelline has come up with a nice palette but leaves lots of scope for improvement and leaves us longing for more.
Things I like about this–
- Pretty shades
- Robust packaging
- Good pigmentation
- Value for money
- Dual purpose applicator
- Allows mix and match and increases versatility
- Good mixture of Matte and shimmery shades
Things I dislike about this-
- Some shades have fallout issues
- Longevity – less wear time
- Less pigmentation
Wrapping it up-
This palette offers 12 shades at an economical price. I must say some of the shades are pretty amazing, however some have pretty noticeable fall-outs. The longevity is an issue which can be enhanced by using a good primer with it. I would say this eyeshadow palette is not perfect and comes with inconsistencies but it certainly is a safe bet for beginners as it allows you to create a variety of eye makeup and has lots of scope to play around with the shades.
