I absolutely love this palette. It grabbed my attention when I first saw it at Target, I knew I had to buy it. The colors in this palette are absolutely beautiful. The gold shades are gorgeous and the burgundy shades are stunning. It was also extremely affordable, and the palette is the perfect size if you like to do your makeup on the go or travel a lot. I will first say that the colors are shimmery and beautiful, they are also so pigmented. The picture I attached doesn't even show how truly beautiful and pigmented the colors are in real life. They are also so easy to blend with and to apply. They also last all day long looking as beautiful as they did when you first applied them. I love how the palette gives you mini tutorials on how to use the shades and make a full smokey eye look. The palette has three shimmery shades, two being gold and one being a deep purple-red shade, there is two matte shades, one is a beautiful burgundy and the other is a black that is perfect to use as an eyeliner, and then they have a cream matte shade that works perfectly as the base eye shadow. These colors all blend together so beautifully, and you can really make a full look out of just using these 6 colors. The only con I have with this palette is that since the shadows are powdery, they do have some fall out when you apply them. But, if you blend enough with a nice blending brush and go back after you're done to clean up the fall out, it looks beautiful! I definitely recommend buying this product, and I will probably go back to get the other NYC mini palette's! Maybelline The City Mini Palette

I picked up a Maybelline Mini Palette at Walgreen's in 'Graffiti Pop' for $10 & could've gotten it for half the price if I had brought my Walgreen's reward card. I noticed these palette's right away when in the make-up section & I loved all the different colors & the cardboard case it comes in makes it look higher quality. When it comes to the eye shadow's the two different purple crease shades & the blue liner shade show up vividly & pigmented. The shimmery lid color has a lot of fallout but does show up nicely. I definitely would recommend these mini palette's, they are decently priced & are great quality especially for a drugstore brand. There's quite a few different palettes to choose from & lots of pretty colors. I plan on buying a couple more of them because I liked it so much.

Review for: Rooftop Bronzes 400 more...
I like this palette and for the price it’s good, however I did find faults with it. I got this at Walmart for around 7$. I got the rooftop bronzes palette and all of the colors are shimmery. I was worried about this at first, however the shimmer does seem to go away when you blend the colors out. I tried doing a halo eye with this and I blended the inner/outer corner color into the middle color which made the shimmer of the middle color go away. If you are going to do any look with this, I recommend making sure all your blending is done before adding the shimmer shade. I like the packaging, and the set up of the shadows. It’s compact and lightweight. I do however with there was a mirror. The colors have a nice pigment to them, but there is a little kickback. The colors did last all day on my eyes. Towards the end of the day I did notice a little bit of creasing as well as the shimmer on my lid fade a bit. Personally that doesn’t bother me but that is something to think about if you plan on wearing this all day. For the price it’s a nice palette, especially for the drugstore.

I bought the City Mini Palette x Shayla because the reddish burgundy shimmer caught my eye. It contains three metallic/shimmer shades and three matte shades that can be combined to get a complete eye look without having to grab another palette. The packaging is pretty standard for drugstore brands and the only downside is that there is no mirror in the lid. I do appreciate the fact that they didn’t put a useless sponge-tip applicator in there though and filled the container with eye product instead. This is small enough to be great to take when you’re traveling and trying to conserve space in your bags, pick up one or two more palettes and you’re good to go for a soft daytime look or a glammed out night on the town. I found that there was quite a bit of fallout with this product, so I recommend doing your eyes first and then your foundation. The colors are all highly pigmented and very creamy to the touch, so much so that you need to be careful and not go at it hard or you’ll be crying at how easily it will break up and flake out on you. I found that the best way to apply the shimmers was with my fingertip, it worked even better than using a damp brush. Although I wish that the burgundy shade was a bit more on the metallic side, it does look beautiful and overall the colors all blended very easily and I didn’t have to spend a ton of time on my eyes. The gold shades are a bit chunkier glitter wise to be aware of that if you plan on putting on liner, my felt tip liners don’t necessarily play well with them but if you just keep a wipe handy to clean the tip of your liner you’ll be good to go.
10/10 would recommend

I gave this 3 stars for a few reasons. Pros- I love how small this is, it’s super easy to carry around or store in your purse/suitcase/etc. The dark shades are beautiful (the black, blue, purple) 😍 Cons- I don’t like the light colors (white, beige/tan, silver glitter) because they barely come up on my skin. With the dark colors, it was very easy to swatch it but with the light colors, I had to do 2-3 swipes just to get the color to even come up! I would definitely love trying one of their other palettes under this line.

W Maybelline The City Mini Palette

Let me first say when I walked in the maybelline display.....first thing that fought my attention was this gorgeous mini palette! Oh the burgundy and golds! The gorgeous shimmers were calling my name! Well I grabbed two palettes this being the first one I was so exited because get it was only $7.99! And for those colors what's a deal! So as soon as I got hope I played with it and ohhh! Let me tell you the colors are super pigmented and the pictures do not do them justice! But the only downside to them is that the do feel a bit powdery so there's a bit of fallout when applying but with a good base and primer you'll have no problem! I really love this palette so I picked up another one of same ones in same color end I love it....I got so e run out the first one! Lol

I love this eyeshadow palette. This is one of the best drugstore eyeshadows that i have every tried. In the past Maybelline has come up a little short with their eyeshadows, THIS IS NOT THAT CASE. This is perfect to fit into a purse, clutch or even into a back pack. I highly recommend this to anyone who is wanting to experiment with new shadows without breaking the bank. There are color ranges for all skin tones, literally perfection. Only down side, I think that there should be another matte shade in the palette.

These really aren’t too bad for being drugstore brand eyeshadow. I’m usually not too impressed with drugstore eyeshadows, but things have been changing in the beauty industry. These are pretty pigmented, but some are a bit chalky, especially the brighter colors. There’s a bit of fallout with them but it’s pretty fixable. They lasted all day and didn’t seem to lose their color. I recommend if you really want them.

Picked this up on sale from Walgreens. It caught my eye because I am really loving the red and gold shimmery shadows this fall. I also love how small and compact the packaging is, it makes it easier to throw in your purse or makeup bag. I was really impressed and surprised by how silky and pigmented these shadows are! Sometimes cheaper eyeshadows are a hit or miss and you end up disappointed in them, but I am happy with the quality of this palette! I need to mention one thing though, the lightest shade is very powdery and I had some fallout while using it, but it’s not a make or break in my opinion!

I love these little palettes! They are a reasonable price at $10 each, CVS usually runs sales on Maybelline so I got these BOGO. I think the colors are pigmented, but not nearly as much as I hoped they would be. I noticed that the shadow does not stick to my brushes well and makes a bit of a mess if I am not careful when applying. I'm not sure I would buy these palettes again even though I love the colors. They were worth a try though.
