Maybelline Eyeshadow Palette - Autumn Spirit

I was lucky to be given this eyeshadow palette from a friend, and I am so glad that she gave it to me because I fell in love with it and use it almost every day.

Firstly, I got the palette Autumn Spirit which is brilliant. The colours match my skin tone perfectly and definitely compliment my eyes. I am not brave enough to go for loud, bright eyeshadow colours and I love the natural look, so these colours suited me perfectly!

On the back of the palette it has a diagram of where you should apply the shadow - do not follow their rules! I found that when I tried applying it as they said so, it just looked like a ridiculous mess. I also found that I was better off using one or two colours, rather than all four as it looked more polished and professional.

The shadows are all very pigmented and stayed on my eyes all day. They are very shimmery, in fact, the only thing I would change about them would be making them just that little bit less sparkly in order to make them more natural and wearable. Saying that, I was still comfortable wearing for everyday purposes. I wouldn't say that the colours are all that different from one another when applied to my eyelid, but it may have just been my skin tone, or the fact that I don't really apply all that much.

I will definitely be looking out for more of these palettes in different colours.

I give this product 8 out of 10.
