These little guys took my by suprise! The colors are super velvety to the touch and the glitters were not chinky at all! They are the perfect in the go, every day palette! The colors blend like a dream. The only thing is the kick back is astounding. But I am sooo willing to look past that for the price tag and the quality of these shadows!

These were not colors I would normally choose for myself. I don't wear very many dramatic looks. Definitely not for daytime wear. A night on the town in the "city" maybe. I was really hoping to like this eyeshadow. I'm a hairstylist/makeup artist but I have used all kinds of makeup from drugstore to high end and I'm not biased. I will tell whether I love a product or not. I just did a smoky eye look with this mini palette and I'm still trying to get the powder/glitter out of my eye. It's very pigmented which is usually a good thing but this is so powdery that as I was trying to apply and blend, eyeshadow was falling everywhere in, around, and underneath my eyes. I'm just not pleased with the colors or the quality.

Review for: Downtown Sunrise 430 more...
I received this in a complementary Voxbox from Influenster.  For a Maybelline eyeshadow pallet, it isn't bad, in fact, it's better than their previous attempts.  The colors are pretty, although it was hard to create a complete look without a supplementary pallet because there's no crease color.  The shadows are smooth, but the pigmentation is lacking on certain colors, especially the bright pinky shade, which needed a lot of building.  That being said, the colors are so pretty that this pallet is worth using even though the shadows need a bit of effort/building to get a good pigmentation on the eyelid.  I think this is reasonably priced and worth buying if you're really drawn to the colors.

Review for: Matte About Town 480 more...
I was really excited for this product as it contains all the colors I use on a daily basis and is pretty much perfect to put together any look, so I applaud them on that. However the formula claims to have "intense creamy color in one swipe," and I found it to be quite the opposite. While some of the colors as you can see in my swatch, mostly the two dark browns, are highly pigmented, they are super chalky and not at all creamy like other eyeshadows that claim to be similar such as Lorac. They also aren't consistent in formula across the colors, as you can see in the swatches. While trying this product out the chalky texture emphasizes the dryness of my eyes and I was unable to blend out to the effect I desired. I think the concept is great but don't think I'll be replacing anything in my current routine with this product. I received this product complimentary in exchange for an honest review, all thoughts are my own. Maybelline The City Mini Palette

I received this palette for free from Influenster for testing and review purposes.
This palette was not bad; it's definitely not the most pigmented, but I don't believe that's necessarily a bad thing. I like being able to build up the color rather than having it go on very intensely pigmented from the get-go. These were also smooth, soft, and fairly easy to blend. I do wish this palette had had at least one shimmer shade, because that would make it more of a stand-alone palette, but I get that this is intended to be the one all matte palette in the range of City Mini palettes. I think it works well as a basic, travel-friendly neutrals palette, and it can easily be supplemented with a shimmer shade or two.

I swatched each shade by just lighting pressing into each individual shadow and the pigment was soooooo nice full on shine and perfection. I tried this particular trio for a night out and i felt like a bronze goddess i love it soooo much! everything about this shadow was perfect. The size, the colors, the pigment yasssss queen you have sold this makeup artist!

Review for: Graffiti Pop 450 more...
I was pretty excited to receive this VoxBox because I never seem to find time to buy new eyeshadow and I especially never buy anything different than natural type palettes. When I opened the box, I was a little weary about receiving the Graffitti Pop palette because blue and purple probably will never be used unless it's for costume type makeup. Nevertheless, I wanted to try it out so I could give my honest opinion! I will have to update my review with the picture later, but I thought the colors were beautiful hues even if they are "loud" for my natural look style! They are shimmery and sassy and proved to be fabulous for those that are brave enough to use these colors in their day-to-day!

First impression looking at it, the color story is awesome. I do wish there were more then one matte shade in each palette to use as a transition shade. The satin green taupe shade and the matte forest green are my favorite. The glittery shades did not preform very well. You have to layer them up a lot to get the color payoff, and as far as the glitter goes, it doesn't show up because its a very chunky glitter. The highlight shade doesn't show up at all which was really disappointing. Overall its an ok starter pallet, but i cant see myself reaching for it very often.

Compared to other eyeshadows this palette was really disappointing. All of the colors have glitter in them except one which is ok as long as you're not needing just the one palette for an entire eye look and that one without glitter is a waxy substance that has barely any pigment. I thought it might be a primer but the back of the palette says it is a shadow so it really is useless. The colors are pigmented but kind of hard to blend. You have to work a little harder to get the desired look. I have only tried this one palette in the city mini collection so I don't know if the others are any better quality but overall I don't think I would recommend the Maybelline The City Mini Palette.

So when I bought this City Mini Palette i wasnt expecting much because past Maybelline eyeshadows havn't had the greatest pigment but when I swatched the Graffiti Pop palette i was very pleasantly suprised!!! Not only were the shadows super soft and buttery but they were also super richly pigmented. Its very hard to make really pigmented purple eyeshadows but Maybelline did it!!! Im also obsessed with the turquoise color in the palette. I love the pricetag and I definitely recommend this palette!!
