The color in these is phenomenal when you first put them on, however if you don't use a primer they fade pretty quickly. There is also a lot of fallout with them which is annoying to wipe off your face mid makeup application.

Such a cute palette. I love the colors so much. Several complete looks can be done with these colors. I am not sure how long it lasts on it’s on, but with eye primer it stays til I wash it off. Would definitely repurchase!

Okay I love love love the colors on this!  I pretty much impulse bought it because of the colors and the glitter.  I've only used one of the lighter colors so far but I found it really nice to apply and super glittery!

Review for: Rooftop Bronzes 400 more...
I received a complimentary Maybelline The City Mini Palette in Rooftop Bronzes from Influenster, to test and review.

I love the size of this palette because it is easy to take with me on the go and at home it doesn't take up much space. I initially was hoping for one of the ones with more bold colour (especially purple to bring out the green in my eyes!) since my eyes have brown in them, my skin is tan, and my hair is brown, but I can't really complain since it was free to test.

I swatched the colours; they were decently pigmented but more so when I sprayed setting spray on my brushes first. I think the lightest colour in this palette took a few layers to show up as well as the rest. I used primer on my eyelids, and everything blended nicely as long as I made sure not to blend TOO much (then all the shades end up looking too similar). There was a little fallout and not much kick up. Every colour in Rooftop Bronzes is glittery, and I would've preferred at least one matte shade so I wouldn't *have* to use other palettes to get a complete look. The eyeshadow stayed on me for a little while without fading or smudging, which was nice.

Overall, I think the shades are beautiful and that this is a nice palette. I am considering purchasing at least one of the other ones (probably Chill Brunch Neutrals). I think the price is nice, for being less than ten bucks. It isn't my favourite drugstore eyeshadow palette, but I do like it and have used it many times in various looks. I plan to keep using it.

Review for: Rooftop Bronzes 400 more...
I received the Rooftop Bronzes city minis palette from Influenster to review at no cost, and at first swatch I loved the texture of these shadows! Super creamy, and the sparkle is amazing! Every shade in Rooftop Bronzes is sparkly. It could use a neutral matte shade, though. I have to combine this with another palette to get a complete eye look.

After a few uses, I'm liking it but not loving it. I did, however, purchase two other City Mini palettes (Graffiti Pop and Urban Jungle), so really for the price they aren't bad. I just had a few issues. I'll elaborate...

On application, I found that the texture of these shadows makes them difficult to blend well. They almost blend too well, I have to be careful not to let the colors get muddy.

As for wear time, it's not the best. These shadows are pretty faded by the end of the day, even with a good primer.

Another issue I had was that two shadows fell completely out of the pans when I turned the palette over upside down. I was able to press them back into the pans pretty easily though, even the shattered one, without adding rubbing alcohol or anything.

However I do like the color combos offered in these small palettes and I do like the creamy texture, even considering its downsides. They're easy to grab and go when I'm in a hurry.

All in all, they aren't bad, but they aren't my favorites.

I love this one in the "Chill Brunch Neutrals" the mauve shade plus the glitters are so nice together. Pretty soft and well pigmented. I like the portable size as well. I honestly want all of the city mini palettes.

They are very pigmented, and blend like a dream. They are like a explosion of shimmer on your eye, but don’t have any fall out. The packaging is OK, I wish you had a mere. I would buy this again because I love it
