So I'll start by saying that I was super excited to to receive my very first voxbox. When I opened up the box I was a bit disappointed to see the colors of the eyeshadow since I usually use more neutral tones. Despite the colors being a bit loud for me I was able to find a few colors that worked. The eyeshadows were a bit difficult to blend and I found the color payoff wasn't the best. There was also a bit of fallout, which is to be expected with shimmer shadows. Would I use this again? I probably wouldn't purchase this palette on my own but I'm very interested in trying the other palettes that have more neutral colors.

This isn't the exact one that I have, but I couldn't find it on the list. I have the all brown matte shades and I'm IN LOVE with this mini palette. I have been using it constantly!

Review for: Girls Night Glimmer 470 more...
I received this for testing complimentary from Influenster and I am so glad that I did. This honestly is not a product I would have picked up on my own, but I ended up loving it.

The compact is very sturdy, I got this right before traveling across the country and it held up during days of flights and being thrown around.

Colorwise these are not the most pigmented, however for the price I do think they are pretty good quality. My favorite was the teal color, it is very trendy right now and was great for summer. With all the rage being mermaid looks this would def. help achieve that. Normally I apply eye shadow last, I know not a popular method, but I would not recommend that with this. There is some fallout and since these a glittery you should apply first that way you can clean up fallout.

These blend out really well, but do require attention to application. The fallout mentioned before is really really strong. I tried with different brushes and did find if I use a denser brush it cuts down on that. Also I dampened the brush with some colors and loved the way it went on.

the package it's in, really great and solid! I've always had makeup break in the pan on me because the makeup holder doesn't secure the pans enough. 2nd I prefer to stick to matte colors, and this pallette has only true mattes. 3rd the color on the 6 show up really well, and doesn't fade over time! It's really soft and so easy to blend! 4th it's also really great that they've made this pallette, and you have the shades you need right in front of you that all go together. No guessing, no looking like a clown, or that you a black eye. Last but not lease, the names given, are perfect and tell you the best times and places to wear the lool. Love it!! Def going in my needed items makeup bag! It includes creamy neutrals and smoky browns, this is any every day wear for me. And if you are the same, and love the every day nude/smoky look this is Def the pallette for you! Can't go wrong! I received this citimini pallette free from influenster for testing purposes.

Review for: Graffiti Pop 450 more...
I just got this in the mail for FREE from Influenster for reviewing purposes. This product definitely has its pros and cons. I'll start off with the pigment it is very strong and shows very well which I love about this product, the colors are beautiful I love the colors together and you can be very creative with the colors. I was a little disappointed with how long it lasts it is a little loose pigment so I feel like it made it come off very easily but if you had a good primer and setting spray I don't think it would be a problem. I searched the colors on my arm to show you how pretty and pigmented they really are but when I barley swiped my finger over the colors they wiped right off. But it is a good price and pretty colors so I would defiantly recommend if you were going for a cheaper alternative!!

Review for: Matte About Town 480 more...
I am so happy with The City Mini Palette in Matte About Town that I can not wait to get my hands on more! Some eye shadows are dry and super messy in the compact but these shadows are quite the opposite. Right off the bat I swatched each shade on my arm. I am so please with the creamy, silky smooth texture of the eyeshadows! I think the creamy texture definitely helped keep the eyeshadow in place and looking fresh all day. On the back of the compact, Maybelline has added a guide as to how to apply the different shades if you're uncomfortable with using eyeshadow. How awesome is that?! I used a little bit of everything to create a subtle everyday look that I could easily take from day to night by adding some of the liner shade in the crease. There are multiple looks you can create with this palette which makes this with every cent in my opinion! I'm so thankful Influenster sent this to me for free to try out. I would have never thought to purchase makeup from the drugstore. I am now looking forward to trying more City Mini Palette's! Maybelline The City Mini Palette

Review for: Urban Jungle 420 more...
This was my first vox box and I was super happy to receive it a huge thanks for the opportunity! I rated this eyeshadow 3 star for the cons that the colors aren't very long lasting - my application stayed for about 2 hours and then became a splotchy look. Also, I wasn't a huge fan of the colors in the palette - it was too dark of colors for me. I do like dark colors and golds but these colors were too harsh. I had to apply very very lightly. I actually chose to play around with the colors and ended up being happy with the outcome of the two lightest shades and the gold brushed over the top - which is pictured here. I have green eyes. I wouldn't buy again because of how quickly it wore off and because I don't love the hues but I think the size of the palette is perfect to throw in your purse!

Review for: Urban Jungle 420 more...
Wearing the @maybeline city minis in urban jungle. It is like green hues earth tone complimented by a beautiful vibrant gold shadow. This is such a travel friendly pallet. Each pallet has a combo of shimmery finishes and the texture are so soft that they're almost creamy and they're all quiet pigmented and easy to blend. Maybelline is one of the best cosmetic brands which has always come up with refined quality of products. It is always a pleasure to use the products from this brand.

Review for: Graffiti Pop 450 more...
* I received this product for free in exchange for my 100% honest, unbiased review from Influenster *

I'll start this review by saying the colors in the 'Graffiti Pop' palette aside the blue are absolute perfect for hazel or green eyes and truly enhances the drama or is perfect for a nude look. I experienced fallout with all the shades however they are easily blendable, and extremely pigmented which is rare for a drugstore brand upon first application.

I always use the Urban Decay eyeshadow Primer Potion prior to wearing eyeshadow and have never had an issue with transferring or lasting power but these eyeshadow did not survive my usual 8 hour bartending shift which was only slightly disappointing yet expected. I'd recommend wearing these if it's a quick night out or if you won't break a sweat

Review for: Girls Night Glimmer 470 more...
I was super excited to be receiving the Maybelline City Mini Voxbox! Unfortunately, the colors in the Girls Night Glimmer palette did not work for me. I'm more of a matte eyeshadow wearer but I gave these a try. There just was far too much glitter for my liking and little glitter particles would go everywhere, with or without Urban Decay primer potion. Pigmentation-wise, I had to make 3-4 passes for decent swatches. I really wanted to love this as I think it's a really great concept and the packaging is nice an compact, perfect for travel or stashing in your makeup bag. I'd giver the other palettes a try, as those color combinations seem more suitable for my skin tone.
