Maybelline EyeStudio Cream Shadow Trio - Purple Possibilities

5 years ago

i remember when this product first came out and maybelline had a lot of ads in magazines using this exact trio. i really wanted it at the time but never got it because i read all these reviews that said these were horrible.

a month or two ago, i got these because they were on clearance at walgreens for 50% or 75% off. (i don`t recall which.) for the reduced price, i was willing to give it a shot!

in the pan, the swatches are absolutely GORGEOUS! there`s a golden color that`s beautiful, a dark purple, and a lighter pink-lilac color.

okay... so besides the colors... in the pan... there isn`t much else good to say about this trio. it`s not that pigmented! i used a heavy hand/repetitive swipes in the swatches above so the color would actually show up instead of looking like lots of shimmer. it`s something you really have to warm up with your fingers to even get it to look like anything, which is unfortunate.

i`ve used these as bases though, and they worked fine for that purpose. however, i don`t usually have problems with creasing no matter how much a product is known to crease on most other people.

i`m so glad maybelline has since upped their game in the cream shadow category with their color tattoo cream shadows... definitely get those, NOT THESE! not really even worth it on clearance, though i`ll probably find a way to use these up as eyeshadow bases.
